Server patching / maybe IPB patching, etc TONIGHT

Recommended Posts

Server's going down for a while tonight probably around 5:30 PM EDT - and why not give a verbose explanation of why?

 

as you may have noticed, DG went down for a little while last night while we took a full system snapshot (which took WAY longer than it should have); behind the scenes a bunch of packages were also updated. 

 

you may have also noticed that i'm taking off for a year and really shouldn't even be posting - but I figure I may as well get the site up to a state I'm happy with before I leave. Tonight we will be updating the operating system of the VM that runs duelistgroundz - it's currently running a 2014 Long Term Support Linux release, selected for its five year official support/patch cycle, which has generally been fine since upgrading from a 2012 LTS. That said, as discord and other software features become more prominent, it's important for us to have newer versions of some things to take advantage of this (looking at you "versions of python greater than 3.4"), and we're going to push to a 2016 LTS release (...no there is no 2017 LTS). Practical offshoot of this will be to let Allen and other devs do a lot more cool shit with scripting and scheduling.

 

That said this upgrade rather than try and update the database binaries just deletes and reinstalls them - this is a colossal pain in the ass as you'd imagine, every part of DG is stored in the database so I'm gonna have to do a lot of work to reconnect everything after - it's not really "hard" as this is my literal day job but it can be time consuming and involve a little bit of luck in terms of isolating small bugs/errors. Because of this its hard to estimate how long we'll be down - I need to take another snapshot (the alternative being losing a day of posts if i break the server) which takes 30+ min, and it's not yet clear how long the update will take.

 

 

Also I MAY do a board software patch - it wont break anything but will patch some bugs/security issues. Really depends on if I have time.

ok so the default skin and the EAVERIN V2 skin both seem to lack the ability to rep posts but that doesn't matter since the former we tried to remove as default iirc

The update is still running some processes in the background; it's technically not complete yet. If shit is still broken tomorrow I'll see if we can fix it.

also this update did a lot of wierd shit to the rep system behind the scenes and bugged out a lot, might take some legwork to get rep properly rolling

Our default skin has been changed to a skin that actually has rep. We may get some new skins. I'm kinda sick and tired of our old ones.

I can even create custom reactions/emojis if I want to. Someday I'm going to be really bored and create some weird memetastic ones.

I've won 35, and I'm sure at least 34 of them were from JC. repping all my posts in our old mafia games.
