DhO Hacked and Upgrade

General

ATTENTION!: It appears that our server has been hacked through this version of Liferay, meaning it is no longer secure, and so expect instability as we deal with this and attempt to upgrade to Liferay 7, which we failed to be able to do last year the last time the team attempted it, but we have no choice at this point, so bear with us as we try again. Save any long posts in a text file before posting them. You can follow me on Twitter at @danielmingram for updates if the site is down. Apologies for any complexity this causes. We will work as fast as we can. We have backups of the database, so hopefully nothing will be lost. Thanks to all helping with this complex process.

Falling back to Liferay 6 shortly, expect instability and downtime

Toggle
Dear All,

Well, Liferay 7, the platform currently running the website, wasn't optimal, to put it gently. The upgrade from Liferay 6 brought many more problems than it solved. After long and valiant struggle, we must admit defeat, and leave working out the bugs to those with more time and resources, meaning some version down the road at some undetermined time.

So, if all goes well, we will likely revert to Liferay 6 this weekend, depending on many factors.

If things get screwed up, lost, broken, or otherwise scrambled, please forgive us and bear with it. Things will be sorted out as soon as we are able.

Many, many thanks to Manish and Simon for all their help with this process.

Long live the DhO,

Daniel

Ok, downgrade performed.

I hope I have copied all relevant data (message board posts, new users etc) from the Liferay 7 install to the Liferay 6 install.

Please let me know here about any issue that seem to have resulted from the downgrade to Liferay 6.
