Sorry! This site is experiencing technical difficulties.

Connection Problems
Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.

I too get the qb64.net homepage but get the same errors when accessing either the Wiki pages or the forum. As to the reasons, not a clue....

May your journey be free of incident.

Live long and prosper.

Mikel, Johnno56, Aurel,

The QB64.net forum is down, but not gone forever.

The issue stems from the server the site is hosted on has became full with all the "daily builds" of QB64. The system is setup to build three versions of QB64 on a daily basis. One version for Windows, one for Linux, and one for Mac OS. On top of that, it compresses the Windows version into two compression formats, *.ZIP and *.7Z. That is four compressed files it creates on a daily basis, and the system is not setup to delete any of them as they get older.

So, the hard drive fills up and crashes the database where it can't be accessed. The database itself is not corrupt, but there isn't enough storage space to operate so it refuses to work. This is the reason that the QB64 forum and wiki don't work over at QB64.net

Galleon, the creator of QB64 and who owns QB64.net posted recently on another forum that he will fix the issue when he gets the moment. When will that happen? There is no telling with him, but I believe he will fix it in time. Why do I believe this? Well, because this isn't the first time this has happened on that site. The first time I saw it happen back in 2014 is when I started this forum thinking Galleon had finally pulled the plug.

The issue is an easy fix. All Galleon has to do is delete most of the dirty builds and restart the server. Then bam! It will be back up.

RE: QB64.net/wiki is this site offline ??
all this explanation is not for me because i am not user of qb64 and
i dont have i plan to use this qb-clone .
I have far better open source lang called Oxygen basic which source code is
written in Free basic and is easy to recompile when ever you want.
but we just talk about this here and from all this i think that mr.Galeon
don't care to much about that ...
so if someone need that forum WAIT!

Aurel,

I fully understand and appreciate that you are not interested in QB64, and I was not attempting to push you to use it. I was simply letting everyone know (again) why QB64.net was down.

I looked at, and downloaded OxygenBASIC, and it looks very interesting. Especially since you can use assembler in it. I was so inspired by the language that I added a new section just for OxygenBASIC in the "Other Programming Languages" area. Please feel free to post some stuff there if you like.

Also, you are correct. Mr. Galleon (Rob is his real name) does not care that much about the project anymore. He even stated that on QB64.net. However, there are some people who still cares about QB64, and continue developing it. They even have a backup copy of QB64.net's wiki. You can find these guys over at http://www.qb64.org/, and you can download the latest dirty build of QB64 there.

Hi Walter
There is no probem at all.

I dont have nothig against people who like to use it
anyone is free to use what like .
