If anyone had a problem with receiving an account activation email you should retry now.

When the hosting provider migrated the VM to a new datacenter the VPS got a shiny new IPv6 address (which I didn't ask for). Apparently email traffic from the forum to google started going over IPv6 recently and google wasn't happy that there was no AAAA or reverse DNS setup.

Posting this here in hopes you see it: Any chance we can get HTTPS spun up? Shouldn't take more than a few minutes with certbot and then a few more in phpBB to ensure the software prefixes https://.

And why, in 2018, would you remove the IPv6 address instead of setting up the AAAA and reverse DNS records?

Never said I did, just said it was a suprise addition that needed DNS records.

Oh, ok. There is no IPv6 address assigned to osdev.org according to my DNS server, which made me think it was removed.
