uptime drama continues odilitime Board volunteer 07/02/2018 (Mon) 07:44:32 [Preview] No. 9434 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
On June 28th, our hosting company started to migrate us to their Switzerland datacenter without notice, they estimated 5 days of downtime.
On June 29th, we were given some options. We could either stay down until monday and then moving everything ourselves over or wait a few couples and they would just copy what we have but we'd be given a new IP.
I opted for the few hours of down time, since we can change IPs quickly.
Late on the 29th, I asked how it was going, didn't get a response until the 30th that things were slow.
Late on the 30th, I asked about status, got an update on the 1st that the copy was done.
I was told we were back online but we weren't. I had to wait until late July 1st to get this resolved with their support.
Also the new server is a bit slow because they're still moving sites over to it.

At least we won't have the billing transfer issues on the 5th like we used to. Hopefully things will stay stable after all this nonsense.

good point, I'll clean up that wording. Endchan is not DMCA free, just the hosting company does provide that.

MongoDB shat its pants in a way that Lynxchan couldn't recover from, probably because it stepped in a document that didn't exist because it wasn't salvaged from the encryption clusterfuck. It didn't get caught immediately because both of us have day jobs. The 500 errors are probably related, since I've checked the server while the site is in 500 and it usually happens when mongod is eating obscene amounts of CPU time. (Of course it could also be 500ing because mongod is a hog and we're running on a hybrid VPS, so large operations take longer than lynxchan's database timeout and trick lynxchan into retrying with a new DB connection.)

To keep this shit from continuing we need to copy the valid documents (your boards, posts, accounts, and media) from our old broken database to a fresh database that doesn't have huge fucking holes in it. This would require experimentation to find how to do it without copying the same broken references over and would almost certainly require more downtime while the copy happens, so we haven't been able to do it yet. We will do it, though, because we hate this shit too.



files repetition in /pone/ #Kmu0lY 07/02/2018 (Mon) 21:42:49 [Preview] No. 9443 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Hi owners,
I have a certain petition to ask. In /pone/, we are having trouble to upload the same files but in different threads. Once one image is posted, the same one cannot be uploaded anywhere else and while there are a lot of images to post, it´s certainly annoying for some situations. The R9K message appears and the reply absolutely blocks the reply.

Could you adjust the archives and instead of blocking them globally in the board, just limit them for one thread so we can repeat them and not feel restricted all the time, especially after the image file fiasco?

Thank you if anyone can reply to this.

R9K is either off or no. It's a limitation of the board software. I'll forward your request to StephenLynx

yeah,I knew it was a setting from the board itself. The thing is that it limited globally the same image and ut was pretty annoying and random at times. We had to edit them a bit in order to post them again.
I have tested it with this image for 3 different threads in the board and the R9K notification doesn't seem to appear nor interrupt the same archive or picture. Feel free to delete those test posts I have made, I will send a report anyway.

Thanks for the change.

Things have been shit on the temporary servers we had to move to due to the lack of donations.
Sybil LTD ( http://sybil.li?ref=endchan ) has come to our rescue and offered us bigger VPS for free.

We've decided to simplify things and consolidate. We just finished this migration today, we had been working on it for a couple weeks now. We are now hosted in the EU on 4 core, 2.1ghz, 4gb of ram, 500gb SSD VPS

We now have a simpler config:
- no encrypted drives which means no need to wait for an admin to type in passwords for things to start automatically
- should have less power problems than our previous temporary servers
- no more frontend/backend servers, we now have one server and one server alone. This means:
- no more 5th of the month, bill isn't paid west frontend goes down
- no more Communication with Backend has gone down

We have removed i2p and eu access. We traded the EU VPS for this bigger one to run the entire site. Additionally, we're going to start forcing HTTPS. Also we're moving to block open proxies and botnets from posting.

We'll be upgrading LynxChan next.

because the eu frontend got upgraded and turned into the main endchan server as well as we got rid of the frontend/backend mess.

i2p was removed because I don't think it ever worked right nor did we have the support or tools to test it correctly.

It's close to free. We are going to basically give all the donations (after registrar, ssl (yes we pay for non-letsencrypt .xyz cert) and other costs) to the hosting company and they give us what we need.

You can create a knitting board here if you want. Both /knit/ and /knitting/ are available.

I'm confident on both you&odili, not so much Lynx.
Hope it's been working out great where you are at. long long time no read.

I have still been having the 500 error for a while, its really been rough this morning too. I have to copy/paste my intended comments in a utf-8 txt file before posting them just in case the server goes down as I post.

I started my browsing today with that error.
Also I post something and it doesn't show up in the thread. On the first page it updates as it should be but not in the thread itself not after several auto and manual refresh. Not even after I close the thread and open it again.
Wtf.

Can the front page be ordered by PPH, or a combination of PPH and # of users? I think it would be a better representation of activity than just the number of users alone.

but then one autist would slide boards off the front page , which nobody uses, by spamming dead boards with no moderators

they could do that now, since its based off the number of unique IPs
your argument is invalid



This board requires at least one file when creating threads. Anonymous 06/23/2018 (Sat) 15:17:52 [Preview] No. 9361 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Endchan won't let me post images when creating threads, this is stopping me completely on boards that require images. FF 52.3 behind VPN.

There are several bots spamming the shit out of random boards (like /test/) again with dick pictures, among other pics. Should the board owner or main site administration enforce global CAPTCHA for a while? I would not mind as long as it keeps the bots away.

The spammer is a dick and you are blaming someone who is against the bot attacks. But go ahead, keep blaming the victim. Friendly fire is pretty easy as we are all anonymous on here.

Nope! Because thats how I express my anger and grief in real life! I shout at people with a rasp voice these days. Don't like it? Too bad!!!

I'm on your side though. I was saying you're clearly not "the spammer because of exclamations". That's fucking retarded. You're just an excitable spaz. Be glad you're old and excitable. You could be a vegetable.
