  1. You could try that and go to admin/upgrade and it could potentially upgrade the original database. I personally would not try that unless you have full backups of the files and database on hand.
  2. Ensure you have a backup of your files and database. If possible, you can restore them so that you have a working site. Then I'd uninstall any 3rd party applications one by one. This would better your chances of keeping everything working correctly. If that works, then I'd upgrade to the latest 4.7 release.
  3. If you're able to utilize your servers phpmyadmin, you can log in and select all your tables and repair them. That might help you gain some traction in getting back online. Also, you can perform a move to a new server without upgrading anything. I actually did the opposite of what you're trying to do, waiting until after the move to upgrade.
  4. I currently use evolution-host, which uses OVH cloud. I actually got the service for free and have not had any issues except with my IP being on a level 2 and level 3 blacklist because of bad neighbors. This affects email deliverability a considerable amount. A newer host that I've began using is datawagon. Their prices are very low and IP's are not on any blacklists, and they include snapshot backups. It seems to be a smaller operation. I'm sure IPS Cloud would be the ideal choice, although I've never used their hosting service. At the end of the day, its a tough choice to make, but whatever you do, backup your data at least daily and you should be better prepared for the unexpected. * and if we're not allowed to mention hosting providers, sorry!
  5. For a "managed" VPS this is completely unacceptable. It sounds like a headache but hopefully you figure it out soon. Good hosts are sometimes tricky to find.
  6. Having a host with hard limits on things such as number of files or processes running is usually the one's you should avoid. Is this a shared hosting server or VPS? I'd look into a different host if I were you.
  7. I, along with others would gladly pay for your hard work.
  8. Any chances of 4.7 support? It works fine on 4.6 but with the php 8 requirements upcoming, didn't know if it would work out of the box with 4.7.
  9. You could try mailgun. I've used them in the past and it works well. Another option is AWS SES which could use SMTP or API. Of the two, AWS is the most affordable, but requires a bit more setup if going the API route.
  10. Is there an easy way to change the forum statistics out put for total post, as seen below? Right now our site shows 1m total posts. I'd rather it show 1.01m, 1.02m, etc. Otherwise, it will just stay at 1m posts for quite some time, giving the illusion not many posts are being added. See the included image. Any help is appreciated!
  11. We use cloudflare on our site and IPS does show the IP of your users.
  12. Install IPB like you would normally, except when entering your key, add -TESTINSTALL at the end of the license number. This is best to do on a localhost machine or you could use a subdomain.
  13. I can take a look at what you have and see if I'm able to help out. I'll message you further @growroom
