Dark humor, stay way Mostrar mais
Problem solved, everyone is up and running.
A small percentage Masto.host shared hosting instances are currently down because there was one server that froze and I had to restart it.
ETA: 15 minutes
Concerns about the cryptocurrency's energy use are overblown Mostrar mais
"Bitcoin miners will consume an estimated 8.27 terawatt-hours per year"
"Global production of cash and coins consumes an estimated 11 terawatt-hours per year, while gold mining burns the equivalent of 132 terawatt-hours. And that doesn’t include armored trucks, bank vaults, security systems and such. So in the right context, bitcoin is positively green."
Images are back for all Masto.host shared hosting instances! 😅
Please let me know if you experience any issue. Thanks
Problem with images for Masto.host shared hosting instances Mostrar mais
There is currently a problem with OVH (the company that provides me the hosting for Masto.host) where the object storage is failing (all images/videos).
I have contacted them and still don't have a reply about the incident.
Will publish an update if I get more information.
You can also see OVH status on the issue here: http://travaux.ovh.net/?do=details&id=28871
Sorry about the trouble this is causing.
Masto.host instances media migration finished Mostrar mais
The migration of all media (images and videos) has finished and all shared hosting instances are now using OpenStack Swift.
It took many days to gradually do the migration but it is now finalised.
I resync every instance media twice to make sure nothing was missing but do let me know if you notice any missing media or other issues.
Thank you all the support while I try to make Masto.host a better platform :)
Masto.host instance new media storage Mostrar mais
I am going to move all shared hosted instances media (images, videos) to a new storage system (from Minio to OpenStack Swift with OVH).
Each instance will only be down for +/- 2 minutes.
To avoid downtime, I will resync all media after the instance restarts and some images may initial fail to load but in some minutes all images will be back.
This migration will be gradual during the next few days.
Let me know if you have questions or run into any issues
I am doing some testing on my personal instance Masto.pt and I will need to restart the instance. Expect it to be down for a couple of minutes.
No other Masto.host instance will be affected.
Masto.host shared hosting problem fixed Mostrar mais
I just woke up and noticed that during the past hours some instances were experiencing intermittent connection problem.
This was caused by a limit to the number of connections I had in place and that couldn't handle all the traffic that was happening.
This problem is now fixed.
Let me know if you still experience any problems and sorry about any trouble this might have caused.
Masto.host server upgrade finish 💪
Notice for Masto.host hosted instances Mostrar mais
Have you noticed the surge of new users to Mastodon this past days?!
Well it is causing the need for more resources and I am going to be upgrading one of Masto.host servers and this will cause a small percentage of instances to be offline for 10 minutes.
Most instances will not be affected.
Thanks and keep on tootin' :)
After 2 days of work, the upgrades have finished.
Every instance hosted by Masto.host is now on v2.0.0 🤠
This update is turning into a lot of work. Everyone should be up and running and I will continue the update to v2.0.0 tomorrow.😅
Second IMPORTANT notice for Mast.host instances Mostrar mais
I have good news and bad news. The good news is that the upgrade is running smoothly and 20% is done.
The bad news is that when upgrading the databases become much larger and I will have to upgrade the database server.
This is will cause an additional downtime in the next minutes and it will take around 10 minutes to be back up.
Sorry about that.
NOTICE for instances hosted by Masto.host Mostrar mais
BTW I will probably not be able to upgrade everyone today and tomorrow will continue.
If your instance is not upgraded to v2.0.0 expect the downtime tomorrow.
Let me know if you have questions or run into any issues after the upgrade.
