Re: wgserver crashed at 4:20am and will not restart since

It is usually caused by the Btrieve engine not closing properly and holding the files open. Once wgserver is closed, if you use task manager to close W32MKDE then relaunch MBBS it should start again.

We are looking at doing some pre-flight checks to prevent this.

What happens when you try to restart? Do you get a Btrieve 20 error?

Re: Menu Tree / MDF Files

Renaming the MDF does not reflect in the Menu Tree from what I have seen. I tried this when changing Worldlink -> Majorlink so there must be references in the menu DAT file that need to be altered.

Re: Putting an old board on line

Hi tus,

As BlaZ mentioned, you should be able to run your existing backup and install the GALICO for telnet access - this would be the easiest and least painful approach.

If you needed to up your line count I can generate another GALPACK for you.

Re: Worldlink Forums for Echo

Yes, they are available.

If you add them to your forums with the correct echo, they will work.
