SyntaxBomb - The shit hit the fan!
« on: February 18, 2020, 06:30:52 AM »
As some of you may have seen the website was in maintenance for quite a while :(

For some reason it decided to throw a hissy fit. I've spent a fair few hours getting it back up and running and I've also taken a full domain backup should things go nuts quickly and require more investigation.

The only thing I can see incorrect at the moment is the Recent Topics list on the homepage which isn't populated with older posts than as of now ( not a huge issue )

If anyone spots anything weird or broken then either post here or email me at qube@syntaxbomb.com


Until the next time...

Did you update something a bit earlier? Forum, PHP, ... ?
IT Stuff tends to stay behaving as it was if you do not change stuff - or some "time specifica" kicks in ("if now - then > x").

I updated the forum software a couple of days ago and I think it clashed with some plugins causing a system wide cascade failure ;D

I know later this year I need to redo the whole server as CentOS 6 will become no longer supported by cPanel so it'll need to be redone with CentOS 7  >:( - but I'll do the whole VM offline and copy it across which hopefully will be pain free  ::)

I think I've restored the needed files and fixed the DB issues so fingers crossed it'll all run smoothly again  8)
Until the next time...

Sounds like you've got some work on there Qube. And I thought I had it bad with a hard drive starting to fail.

Ok, so it was "your" fault rather a hardware one. Glad you sorted it out and even plan to update our Matrix VM.

I notice that forum registration is busted too >:( - Ah well, another thing to fix today ::) but main thing is current members can login and post and there seems to be no further issues on that side.

That explains the silence the last weeks :D

Seems plug-ins should be renamed to drop-outs.

Is that meant serious? No interest in hosting it anylonger? Or do you see benefits of bringing coders together? Would surely bring back/together some old faces from the brl-days.
