If everything goes as planned we will replace the server hardware this weekend. There could be a downtime. Don't panic :)

Any chance that there could also be a forum software upgrade that allows better use on mobile devices?

I can give it a try. Perhaps I could try to update and install an additional mobile friendly theme. But no promises yet. But I will take a look.

If we upgrade to a version between 3.0.11-3.0.14, this nice GPL mobile theme would work: https://www.artodia.com/phpbb-styles/mobile/
(Same as Red Eclipse is using).

I moved the server to the new hardware. If anybody encounters any problems, just post them here in this thread.

The auto redirect to https in the wiki causes some problems. Time to update the mediawiki version :).

Https went great, but mobile use not so?
