Post Re: We are back
Long story short version:

We were moved from Cluster.02 to Cluster.05. Unfortunately, no one told me about this move (which ultimately is a good thing--you'll notice the forums are even faster now than they were before). One of the things that was upgraded was MySQL from a 4.x version to a 5.x version. PhpBB's tables need to be updated in the database to work in MySQL 5.x if they were initially created on a 4.x version. If the forums are used before those changes are made, it corrupts the database.

Our host restored our database from a backup and I kept the forums deactivated until I could upgrade that database to the specs needed for MySQL 5.x. I performed that upgrade this morning and we're back online.

Unfortunately, the backup that we received was (it appears) just about 2 weeks old so we did lose some posts. I'm sorry about that; but it is what it is. I will see if I can recover some of the posts from the old database and migrate them over--but I'm not holding out much hope since I couldn't even begin to access the phpbb_posts table in that db.

Thanks for your patience--glad we're back online!
