Transfer of MSB tonight: 7:30 EST

    @alzie Yeah, that's a bit different. The issues we had yesterday were almost entirely network-related ones, (ACONNECT, etc), which actually crashed and forced nodebb to restart each time.

    I'll try to dig into this more when I have a few minutes but I was hoping this thing would just work since I've never worked with redis and only peripherally with node.js in the past.



  • Just as an FYI, I've been getting that 'something went wrong' message in the salmon colored box every so often.

    @tnp Ditto

    One night this week we'll upgrade to the newest version of nodebb. I'll put up a notice first - it might not help but we'll see.


  • Admin

    @alzie Let me know please if you continue to experience these? I tweaked the MaxRequestWorkers setting along with a couple of other things in the apache config.

    Sorry about these interruptions folks.



  • Going to try to keep this short, I've been getting kicked out of login every five or so minutes. Not sure what's going on. Makes me need to re-login.


  • Admin

    There will be a short downtime at 14:00 today to get the VM's memory upgraded.

    It shouldn't last for too long (a few minutes). Apologies for any inconvenience.


  • Admin

    The upgrade is complete. Let's see how that one guys, we were dancing a bit too close to the flame there for a while.

    @arkandel Been using it all day so far with no issues.


  • Admin

    I think I finally fixed our recent technical woes here. The logs so far have been completely silent for the last 3-4 hours, so that's a good sign.

    We also upgraded our hardware specs since at peak times we had a couple of instances the server wasn't keeping up.

    Please let me know if you experience any more of those 'pink letter' boxes telling you your connection to MSB is lost.

    Asked on the Dragonlance thread: Did the ability to create polls on new threads disappear in the transition? I never had, so I could just be missing the icon in a new thread.

    Thanks.

    @thenomain Oh, hrm. It was a plugin, so that'd explain why.

    I'll restart nodebb in a couple of minutes to activate it. I think @Auspice wanted a new plugin too so I'll get that one in at the same time.


  • Coder

    And now losing connections again...


  • Admin

    @lithium I just said I was going to restart nobebb :)


  • Coder

    @arkandel I hadn't looked on when the post was made.

    Sorry.



  • OMG disconnented. End of World.


  • Admin

    Speaking of though, I'll upgrade our forum to the newest version on Friday night at 21:00 EST. The forum will be down for a few minutes while that takes place.

    Mmm, doesn't look like it's in correctly.


  • Admin

    @thenomain It looks installed in the admin panel but yeah, even the bbcode doesn't work. I'll look at it tonight.


  • Admin

    <scratches head> Well, I just read some Linode emergency e-mails about the physical drive the VM MSB is running on is hosted on failing, so they had to migrate and restart the machine last night.

    I guess systemd took care of everything since obviously we're here, and I'm happy to not have had to do anything about this.

    Apologies if any of you tried to access the forum around 05:00-07:00 EST since you wouldn't have had much luck, apparently.


 

Looks like your connection to MU Soapbox was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
