I am in the process of trying to restore the OLD KCF database into this latest version of SMF. The databases and MySQL versions are totally different so more than likely what I will end up doing is installing an older version of MySQL on my Linux home server, installing the old 2.0.14 version and its database from late last year (2022) and then converting it to the latest version, uploading it to the new server and going from there.
This should work BUT it will take me a while as I am extremely busy right now running back and forth to Dr. appointments etc. I have not been feeling the best as of late and I am in the middle of dozens of tests and appointments. It's almost maddening.
Anyhow I am hopeful I can get KCF back up and running. I am sorry for letting it fail previously but it was becoming a financial burden. At least now its affordable.
