Databases copied to backup server.

Database restored to backup server now in progress. (This will take awhile)

Started with 82 Addons installed.

Down to 71 now. They take awhile to uninstall, which tells me they use a lot of database. :)

I am not removing the major addons yet. I want to remove the minor ones first then backup the database again just in case removing a major one causes database issues.

Read a tip at Xenforo, that removing styles helps speed up the removal of addons.

So now I am removing a lot of styles (many we never even used) Hopefully this will help speed things up more. :D

Ok we are updated!

I am going to open up the site Welcome back.

Remember nothing has been configured or addins installed.... I am still working on the system. I would rather have the site open to use while I am working instead of keeping it down as I work. The site IS usable, just not everything is here yet.

In addition as I mentioned before just one style for the moment. But give me time and we will get it going with other styles. :D

Thanks for being here!

Personal opinion- initial appearance looks cheap compared to before. Looking forward to what styles you will be adding. So far navigating around seems perfect.
