uptime drama continues odilitime Board volunteer 07/02/2018 (Mon) 07:44:32 [Preview] No. 9434
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.

looks like the new swiss server is 900mhz faster than the last one.

I'm having problems with SOME of the captchas here, hopefully not this one too.

does that mean you can play DOOM with the extra frequency?

MoonManDoom server when?

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.
