Re: Update on Outage, Lost Images, Parse errors, etc.

My only problem was that I stupidly did not back up my own files of photos. I thought, hey why bother they'll always be there on ES if my computer crashes. My computer did die, and then I never went and got the pix back. Then es lost em in a migration. Happily, yesterdays problems seem to be gone. ...

Re: Planned Server Downtime, August 31st 19:30 PST

SQL errors were fixed yesterday, please tell me if any similar problems occur. Sorry that I didn't update this thread, there seem to be a number of subthreads spawning each time a bug is found or remembered, and I've been posting in those. Otherwise, good news! Thanks to the efforts of some outstand...

Re: ES Security Risk Warning for the first time today.

FireFox did an update which appears to have caused the alert. They did another update this morning and the alert has gone away. I have deleted the certificate and the problem has not returned. Thanks Even so, I'll put that on the "to solve" list. There might be a difference between the www.endless-...

Re: Planned Server Downtime, August 31st 19:30 PST

Hello again guys, sorry for the information blackout! I had a commitment to a friend's wedding out in the country, and didn't have very good connectivity. To keep you all updated, we have all the attachments in a backup that I took before I migrated the server and before the old server was pulled, b...

Michael, My data logging software at http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=17458 appears to have gone missing again. When will it be safe to upload it? Thanks for all the hard work! I'm actually having a bit of trouble right now restoring the attachments, and I'll let you know when i...

Please announce when the transfer of the images is complete, so I can determine if I need to repost them.
I will. Sorry about the delay; 8GB is a lot to transfer at 300KB/s. :?

Should be all done by the afternoon!

Re: Planned Server Downtime, August 31st 19:30 PST

Anyway did you manage to retrieve the fabled 'lost pictures' circa > 2010, or are they toast? knightMB etc kept promising us that they will come back / will be fixed at some point.... would be great to have a solid answer from someone who knows what they're doing. That's definitely on the todo list...

Re: Planned Server Downtime, August 31st 19:30 PST

Doing what I can, thanks for the encouragement! Cookies seem to work, so now it's just the file attachments to finish, which should be on their way soon. Did you know we have 300MB videos in there under a completely different forum file naming scheme? I didn't :D. Maybe we need to clean that up if w...

Re: Planned Server Downtime, August 31st 19:30 PST

Okay, so the second forum is up, and the dns records should be changing as I type. Three important things to note: - Cookies may give some trouble at first: Please log out, and log back in again. - Attachments are not there right now. As I type, the attachments are being transferred from the old ser...

Due to Daylight Savings Time, what I mean by PST is actually -7:00UTC. So in this case, the maintenance will start at 02:30UTC/GMT tomorrow, the 1st of September 2011. Sorry, I should have specified the time in UTC/GMT in the first place.

Re: Planned Server Downtime, August 31st 00:00 EST

Well, once the new server is setup and running, but DNS isn't updated, you can still go post the IP address over at Ypedal's forum (which is only really there in case ES is down for whatever reason): http://www.ypedal.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=12 Then he can also put it on his ES status page: h...

Re: Planned Server Downtime, August 31st 00:00 EST

What will the new IP address be? Knowing that, those that wish can add it to their own local stuff once it changes over, before DNS updates. Because of some show-stopping confusion over billing with respect to the old server that was only resolved today, I still need to set up the new server, and t...

Re: Planned Server Downtime, August 31st 00:00 EST

After some confirmation with our current hosting solution, there may also be a bit of unplanned downtime as the domain records are updated to switch to the new hosting solution, and this will have to start at 19:30 PST, or 21:30 EST, in order to ensure that a proper, up to date backup is made before...

Planned Server Downtime, August 31st 19:30 PST

Hello all! There will be some planned server downtime of endless-sphere.com tomorrow night (31st of August, 2011) starting at 21:00 PST (00:00 EST), lasting an expected 4h worst case. This will be for migration of ES to a more suitable server, and some security fixes. Please excuse the interruption!...

Re: End of August Updates

Hello everyone! I hope I can use my accumulated IT skills for good, and help make ES more awesome. Please bear with me as I try, though, as my formal training is mostly in hardware design, not web development or IT. If you think I'm doing something wrong or could do something better, please let me k...

Re: Help me write the ES wiki

Sorry for the delay guys, I've never set up a wiki so this is a fun but time consuming experience. Because of upload dangers on an anonymous wiki, I'm setting it up to authenticate against this forum so only ES users can edit (then the dangers are just the same as those regarding forum attachments)....
