Original server was only up temporarily to access the files. Having some complications moving to the new server because the size of the database. Slim chance we may need to restore forums from quite an old backup as current and recent ones are throwing up errors. Worst case scenario we will lose about 2 years of forum posts and registrations.

Let`s hope he manage to do a full recovery of the server in the new location. Frugal is a very busy person these days, so we need to be patient.
