From Windows to Linux - lower/upper case
Hi guys,

I've just migrated a 2.5 forum from a Windows to Linux server.
I'm now having a very specific issue regarding "ex members".

For reference, please have a look at a cut-out from a random thread:
Quote:
THREAD NAME | Hadrian [21VB]|hadrian@mail.dk|1243800067|Hadrian_21VB|xx|0|85.80.162.60|CONTENT OF THE POST
THREAD NAME | Hadrian [21VB]|hadrian@mail.dk|1277790057|hadrian_21vb|xx|0|193.89.221.64|CONTENT OF THE POST


As you can see, the same user uses "Hadrian_21VB" in the first post and "hadrian_21vb" (lowercase) in the second post.

On the old (Windows) server, this is of course not an issue.
But after migrating to the Linux server - all the instances of lowercase hadrian_21vb now looks like a ex member.
If i change the file to match the "uppercase username" the user shows up correctly.
This is true for thousands of posts and hundreds of members - so it won't be possible to manually change..

How do i go about solving this?  Shocked
