The database server (SQL Server 2016 SP1 Express) is on newer hardware, and back up and running again! All of the databases were successfully restored. It amazes me how many technologies that have to come back together to make all of this work again! I have to be a DB Administrator, Linux Administrator, Windows Server Administrator, Multi-Platform Programmer, Web Developer, Repair Technician, etc.!
I’m trying to get my old PHP code to connect to the new MSSQL server. Looks like PHP7 doesn’t include support for my current method anymore. So, I’ll have to re-design the account management system. I hope the game servers don’t have any trouble connecting!
