The forum is back up and in its original state after the hard disk crashed in the other server, lucky I had a back up of the sites SQL but not the files.
We now have our very own server and should not have any problems with it (fingers crossed) and the site looks just about the same as it used too.
Thanks to all who helped on PHProfession during this time and I'im glad to say our central discussion and test site is back.
please post any comments and updates on what has been going on since we were down here. Any changes you have made or updates you know where to add those in the message board.
Look for further developements on http://www.phpsolutions.co.uk
