I've gotten a couple errors here and there after posting on my phone but it's infrequent and it wasn't the same kind of error. Just some kind of connection one.

I checked with the host about the seemingly random database errors that are still happening a few times a day.

Quote:
If you're seeing the same error that would indicate to me one of two things:
1. You have some sort of caching in place [CloudFlare, your browser, etc].
2. You have a plugin/addon/theme/something installed that is still using regular MySQL instead of MySQLi.

Changing your PHP version may change this but honestly I wouldn't suggest going backwards as the newer versions are faster.
We have a lot of add ons and plug ins installed, including some written for older versions of vbulletin than this one. That is most likely where the problems originate.

I may be able to track some of the error sources down over time.

To me, this is a harbinger of things to come. Eventually an upgrade may break the creaky old vbulletin application, and we'll be forced to move to another platform.

The same fate awaits TR at some point, though the timing may be different because MR and TR are hosted by different web hosting companies.

Last fall I did some research and testing on a couple different alternative forum applications. Free ones, because I'm not impressed with the market leaders in the for profit forum software niche.

As time permits, I'll resume research and testing.

Right now, based on how our move went, I feel like MR may need to change software before TR does.

^ I'm guessing it will be easier to get buy-in with posters here, cf TR.

Most TR posters seemed fairly don't care or apathetic.

I expect my head on a pike the instant postspy goes away.

I've temporarily disabled all our add ons except for spambot prevention to see what the site does in near-vanilla mode.

This includes tapatalk.

More in a bit!
