I think phpBB only allows us to switch between 80 and 443; not use both?

I can't speak to phpBB specifically, but if it doesn't support listening on multiple ports using multiple protocols (i.e. non-SSL on 80, SSL on 443), it should still be possible to add a reverse proxy server like NGINX to achieve this.

https://www.nginx.com/resources/glossar ... xy-server/

This sounds complicated but the reality is that it's quite easy to set up, assuming that you have shell access to your web server.

A simpler solution would be to configure Apache directly to do this (I can see by the headers that the forum is being served by FreeBSD / Apache). It would look something like this in your ports.conf:

Listen 80
<IfModule ssl_module>
Listen 443
</IfModule>

Just a thought. It may not be worth the extra effort to implement, but I just wanted to point out that it is an option.

Okay, right now SacredCowSlayer is waiting on transferring the domain so if CluesForum disappears momentarily, please do not be alarmed. We will do our best to get the new site up and going ASAP.

We appreciate your patience during this process. We cannot guarantee that data posted to CluesForum between now and then will be preserved in the database but we'll do our best. So please don't wreck the place while we are working. Thank you.

The forum's SSL changes over the last week seem to have broken its Mint page:
Mint was unable to connect to the database. Please make sure that the correct values have been added to /config/db.php.

MySQL Error: php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known. (2002)

https://cluesforum.info/mint/

Can this be fixed, so we don't lose our statistical history of page views and number of readers?

That’s an excellent question. I’ve wondered the same with regard to some of these statistics.

My best guess is that Hoi and PianoRacer are catching up from all the work done just to get the site back online.

We still have a number of things to address. But, one thing at a time my friend.

Sincerely,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, fbenario. That was something we didn't think to test.

I believe I've got it fixed now. Take a look and let me know.

Any other issues with Mint or any other aspects of site functionality - please post them here and I will do my best.

Thanks,

The Mint page is functional again, but has no data for the period from last Wednesday until earlier today, Sunday.
