I had to log in again for the first time since February. The rest of the AARoads site worked just fine.

I got this error message:

This was related to a scheduled security upgrade from my host provider. These are somewhat routine, but this is the first time one took down the forum.
Fortunately rickmastfan67 was able to figure out what needed to be restored, and I had what was needed on my PC to send back up.

ozarkman417, are you still getting php error messages even while logged in?

Sorry, I should have phrased that better.
That's what I saw while the server was down. It is working just fine for me now.

I was wondering what happened this morning. I saw the same message ozarkman417 did. All seems to be good now.

I saw the same message. I googled it but couldn't really find any good results.

Same. I got the error slapped in around noon Central Europe. I had to log in back. But I took a chance to glance the Registration Problems? forum before log in back xD.

You can see for yourself if you log out. It's the reverse of Fictional Highways and Travel: only visible to non-members (because members are already registered, so "registration problems" is irrelevant to us.  :)

Yikes, mine is one of the longest there. I was only 13 when I registered so it's terrible, I sound super embarrassing and inmature. Log out to see it if you want to be embarrassed. My name is "Pat" and it's from April 2017.

If you don't want to log out to see it (and the horribly placed ads), you could just enter incognito mode.

I'm in incognito mode right now, and I can't see the registration problems board.

Better than being PatTheSplasher, as that would make you one of the various Marf sockpuppets.

I have a Chrome browser open in Incognito mode.  I am logged into this site.  Unless I just don't know where to look, I don't see that forum.

You shouldn't see it if you're logged in.

That said, the forum is back, so I think we're good here.

Log out. Then look underneath "Welcome!" on the forum index page.

Your login isn't stored in Incognito mode, so you could open an incognito tab instead of logging out on your non-incognito browser. If you are logged in on the incognito tab, that's why it's missing. Close the incognito tab then re-open it, it should log you out because it does not save your login.

I'll admit, I did get a kick out of Alps' response.

Logging out defeats the purpose of testing what we were testing—namely the below:

I saw that, but I thought you simply wanted to see the page in question. Now you're making me think I'll have to try a private window (I'm using Firefox).

Edited to add: When I loaded the forum in the private window, I was not logged in and I could see the subforum in question.
