Yup, got fixed yesterday. Update is in the downloads. :)

@Chen - Les may have got blocked by the spam blocker and I approved his post. Maybe cause he was using his VPN. Now he can't post or anything.
@grandseb59, Try setting your directories to 755 and files to 644 and see if that works. If not, you may need to ask your hosting to check ownership of the directories and files (chown). If you are on a VPS or dedicated server then you should be able to fix it yourself.

To change ownership (chown) run the following two lines of code in SSH. Replace "username" with your hosting name:

cd /home/username

chown -R username:username public_html

To change permissions (chmod) run these two lines of code in SSH:

find . -type d -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0755 # For directories

find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0644 # For files

Or change the numbers to whatever your server is supposed to be.

Yeah, it has closed a lot of schools here and some businesses. A lot of the store are getting hammered cause people are stockpiling food, etc. Some stores I've been to have no chicken or frozen veggies, or bread, etc. Gotta go to different stores for various things. :(

Stores that used to be open 24 hours are now only open from 6am till midnight cause they keep running out of food and need time to restock.

I hope you had a great day today and will have many more!!!
It's missing instructions for where to upload and how to run, etc. I'm sure someone will be asking sooner or later.
There is another utility that is on my site somewhere that will do the same. Haven't tried it in a long time tho...
Hmmm, interesting. Great for people who move from one hosting to another and the hosting has different collations.
I sure am, thanks! :)
Was referring to both versions about the addition. But...

The one at smfhacks says for 2.0, I was wrong. I was probably thinking of Block Proxy VPN On Registration mod which is for 2.1. And yes, 7.2 and 7.3 works great with 2.1.
Just finally tested this. So far, no errors! YEAH!

However, this should be added to the docs or something similar:

"When you switch versions of PHP you will get "Service Unavailable" upon viewing your site which may last up to a few minutes depending on the speed of the server as well as your broadband. Refresh your browser after a minute or two and your site should load again and be much faster!"

A few of us had tested switching PHP versions lately without the mod and got that. You'll also get it after you install the mod. Someone reminded us about the mod but the one on vbGamer's site. But his is only for 2.1. I'll let them know about this one for 2.0.x.
Not that I'm aware of... There are many, many sites that have games that can be used with the arcade and there would be no way to keep track of them all. You would just have to search until you find what works for you.

Been getting the following errors in my log lately:

I've left them in the error log so you can see for yourself, in needed.

After you download it, there will be an /other folder within it. Move that folder to the /public_html folder or whatever subfolder you have installed your site to. Then install/update it or it will not work.
