    The old Swyx Forum Archive is not available anymore

    From 2007 to 2014 I have used a content management system called DotNetNuke (DNN). It was one of the standard CMS systems at that time and came with tons of great features. Unfortunately something broke inside of my DNN installation and from 2009 on I wasn't able to install updates, including security updates, anymore.

    As the internet is not forgiving when it comes to open security gaps my Swyx Forum page got hacked quite a lot. 

    In 2014 I finally decided for a hard break and switched the content management system to InvisionPower. Beside a lot of really nice pros, there was one con I had to swallow: there was  no way to move the content of the old CMS into the new system. So I decided to switch the old Swyx Forum into a read only mode and keep it available as archive for all time under the  address www.archive-swyx-forum.com.  

    Of course the internet still wasn't forgiving and as the old security gaps remained in the archive it continued to get hacked.

    Not only because it meant every time a certain amount of work for me, but also because I really didn't wanted to risk the security of all Swyx Forum visitors I have lately decided to close the SwyxForum Archive for good.

    Of course I still have backups and will continue to move old content over into the current forum, but all links into the archive Google & Co provide are not available anymore and will bring you right here. If Google shows you a result you definitely need to get access to, please let me know (don't forget to provide me with the link Google provided you with and your email address so that I will be able to answer to you).

    I am sorry for the inconvenience, but I treat your security of higher value than some old forum topics.

    Please feel free to look around here in the new forum (well, "new" since 2014) or use the Forum Search to find what you are looking for.

    Yours sincerely,
    Tom Wellige
