http://forum.ee2.eu works again. Error 500 was caused by the yesterday's php 7.1 update and was fixed by today's update.
The FORUM won't work for the next XX hours.
Optional minor update 156005 has been released. A short changes list is available here: https://forum.ee2.eu/viewtopic.php?p=20366#p20366
Read the EE2.eu BLOG for information about yesterday's Server problems, and for the information about the new Server https://ee2.eu/blog/009-new-ee2-eu-server.php
EE2.eu (including MP Lobby) has been moved to a new Server in the UK, with 6GB RAM and 2 cores Intel Xeon E5-2640 v4 @ 2.40GHz :)
Due to unexpected problems with the new server, we have moved back to the old one, until the new one is fixed.
If somebody has problems connecting to EE2.eu, press Logo Windows + R, type: "cmd", OK, and type: "ipconfig /flushdns" (without quotes)
EE2.eu has been moved to a new server.
There are some problems with the EE2.eu Server today (unexpectedly high load). I sent a support ticked to provider and waiting for an answer
If you experienced the Unhandled Exception crash: 0x02151bb2 on EE2: AOS after the last update - please reinstall the patch. It's fixed now.
