New server; Upgrading to PHP 7
« on: January 12, 2019, 19:27:33 »

Now that official security support for PHP 5 has ended, it's time to move forward: The Mod Archive now runs on a host with PHP 7. One visible improvement for you is that the site loads faster now. However, as with almost every software upgrade, there are some gotchas, and while we tried to test the site as much as possible, it could be that there are some things that are broken after the transition to PHP 7. Most of the time, this becomes manifest in a blank page. Please let us know here if you come across any such problems.

While doing this upgrade, the links to all RSS feeds (recent modules, recent featured modules, and the feeds for the news and competition forums) have been fixed as well.

All of these upgrades have been made by possible by the friendly helping hands at SceneSat who provide the new infrastructure for running the website. We are also thankful to the people at Blix Solutions where the old server was located. To keep the archive alive and running on the new server, please consider donating towards our hosting fund!
