Re: [SOLVED] Can't login or contact admin?: Forum upgrade disruption ...

Whatever it was it was recent, I've logged in/out several times since the forum upgrade using my stored password. It's always been fine until I logged out yesterday ( just to see what happened) I checked again since I reset &on different devices and its been fine ... so far :)

Re: [SOLVED] Can't login or contact admin?: Forum upgrade disruption ...

I know from experience that changes to the server PHP version can cause similar problems (something to do with password hashing algorithms), possibly Nigel has been updating the server ?

Mine was OK ...... until I logged out then it wouldn't recognise my password. Reset (with the same password) sorted it 8)

Re: Topfield 5800 in 2021

My Pi has been running virtually 24/7 for over 4 years, never had a problem with it and my Toppy has always been accessible via the Pi in that time. It runs with no mouse, keyboard or monitor, although I do have an HDMI connection from it to my TV so I could plug in a keyboard/mouse if I wanted to u...

Re: Topfield 5800 in 2021

AFAIK you can't FTP directly to the Toppy, mine is connected by usb to a Raspberry Pi, which has a FTP server running on it (among other things). The Pi is connected to my LAN so any of my network devices that can run a FTP client can connect to the Toppy, TM can also connect using FTP. I use a lice...

Topfield 5800 in 2021

Although the hardware is stuck in 2006 (apart from hard drive upgrades) the software certainly isn't. I remember well the trials & tribulations of doing any transfers, updates etc back then. At one time I used to drop a usb cable out the bedroom window and in through the lounge window so I could...

Re: [SOLVED] Can't login or contact admin?: Forum upgrade disruption ...

It was hardly what I would call a random lockout, Nigel gave plenty notice he was going to update the forum software https://forum.toppy.org.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=21381 and did warn of potential disruptions.Personally given what he was doing I thought it went very smoothly 8) with only m...
