The following was posted to the CEFSG Forum on Tuesday August 28, 2012 and is repeated here for the benefit of members who may not see the post prior to the phpBB2 forum being closed for the upgrade.
It is now Tuesday August 28th, 2012 0730 hours EST.
The actual transfer of the system from phpBB2 to phpBB3 is scheduled to start at 1000 hours. That detailed work is being completed by the technical team at Register.ca, the company that currently hosts cefresearch.ca.
The existing phpBB2 site will be closed to members some time prior to 1000 hours to prepare backup files of all the information present prior to the upgrade - just in case! Routine backups have been made daily for the most recent period.
At this time we have no information as to how long the site will be down while the upgrade is taking place. As soon as it is complete we will post a message to the blog ( http://cefresearch.blogspot.com ) and we will place the new links on the main CEFSG site ( http://cefresearch.ca ).
If you currently have the CEFSG Forum bookmarked, please note that the bookmark may cease to function. From this time forward, please do not use any bookmarks to gain entrance to the forum as this may disrupt the process.
The MATRIX ( http://cefresearch.ca/matrix ) is not affected by this upgrade. Note also there are a number of links on the CEFSG Blog site to other member sites. Take some time and visit our members .... we will be back shortly!
