How to access MHF Rally programme!

Can someone tell me how to access the MHF Rally programme.
Since the password reset, if I click onto home, rally programme, then click on a rally I get on screen PHP USER WARNING. Configuration: please convert your config file via the new config.php.new.
Never had this problem before the password reset!
I have no idea what it means or how to do it.
What is happening to MHF website?

We're investigating that alert right now, it shouldn't have anything to do with the password system as they're two separate databases.

I have found that If you click on the 'Sign up for a MHF Motorhome Rally or Meet with no obligation HERE' button at the bottom of the rally listings ALL the Rallies are opened and accessible from there.

Isn't it about time these two separate 'sites' were joined so we don't have to keep switching from the forum page to the home page etc. How long since VS bought the site and it still operates like two separate businesses?

I suspect if it was straight forward it would be done, but it was never going to easy given the structure and the various coding added as it developed over the years prior to VS.

Migrating such a cobbled together site would/could be an even bigger disaster for us now.

In my working days we had a client who got a guy to develop them a pretty useful Access database with a great user interface, which he supported and added to on a regular basis.
Their guy decided to emigrate, therefore as we ran and supported all their major billing systems they wanted us to take the support over. We declined to do so as after investigation, the structure including basic naming conventions were nowhere near the industry standard coding for such a database. In the end we built them one from scratch based on a stable foundation.

I assume VS are facing similar issues or it would be sorted, or as my Gran often said "you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear"

and the old forum software which had been tweaked so much and no record apparently kept of what had been done would certainly qualify as a "sow's ear" IMO, but the current software that MHF uses is much more like a "silk purse" in many respects.....

yes, there are problems trying to access the old sections but the rally programme may well be one that VS should look at migrating in some way, or introducing a new version linked to the current software pattern.

MHF Rallies are an excellent way of meeting people, going to events and simply having fun - which is what using a motorhome is all about (sadly we are in France so cannot partake of them)

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.
