Thanks for your fast response.

I'll look into createaforum.com.

2.Yes, we just need the database dump. No cost.  No limit on size of database. There are limits on attachment space.


What is this limit?  Are the attachments dumped with the "Backup Database" SMF feature if I check all the boxes?  Here is the size of my uncompressed dump:


Code: [Select]
> ls -l ~/Desktop/smf-complete_2019-10-30.sql

1. I have been running createaforum.com for over 10 years. I would probably migrate you to that SMF based platform as it has all the features.
20 years is a long time to say, it depends on how the internet changes. I can say for sure we will be around at least 5 to 10 years more.
2.Yes, we just need the database dump. No cost.  No limit on size of database. There are limits on attachment space.
3. One time fee for database export of $50 includes attachments and other site files.

I currently operate an SMF 2.0 forum for free support of an open-source software package and am looking for an alternative host.  I have a few questions about SMFNew:
  • I expect to be operating my forum for another 20 years.  What are your plans for the longevity of the SMFNew site?
  • My current forum has 7.5k members and 48k posts.  Can I migrate all accounts and posts to a free SMFNew account?  If not, what is the cost for this?  Is there a limit on the size of the database for a free SMFNew forum?
  • I read in a post here that SQL database download is a paid feature.  Where is this explained, and what is the cost?
TIA for your answers.

Hey Browman, welcome to the SMFNew support forum! :) I don't have any specific plans here aside from going to local fall festivals and such. Also, my brother, dad and I are probably going to go old school and play Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory like we used to around the holidays. One fan-made map, called Resurrection, is perfect for Halloween and is sort of a tradition for us haha

I agree, forums have really taken a back seat to social media and Reddit these days so that kind of growth is insane! I suppose it's a credit to the uniqueness of a word game forum. Very nice!
