By mistake I just ran: nginx -
It started returning log messages and I canceled it. Restarted nginx just to be safe and all looks good. I have no idea what ‘nginx -‘ do and can’t find references to that command. Any idea?
If someone knows of a cat like this one https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/06/14/russias-psychic-cat-achilles-predicts-winner-opening-world-cup/ but that predicts Bitcoin price, let me know :)
This update is going to take a long time. Probably will not finish today.
Over 1 hour to update +/-15% of the instances.
Sorry but this deduplication of users is causing a some trouble.
I will let you know once I have finished
BTW: you can see the changelog for v2.4.1 here: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v2.4.1
Migration Finished! 🎉
All Masto.host shared hosting instances have been migrated to a new database server.
This new server has double the resources available and it's faster.
It was a lot of work but it should (hopefully) be good for the next months.
Keep tooting 🐘 and let me know if you notice anything strange with your Masto.host instances.
I will be testing a database migration on Masto.pt instance, expect a couple of minutes of downtime in a bit
Current Status: Cat Sitting
To try and reduce the number of bots that lately have been hitting Mastodon, I have implemented @pfigel Naughty List: https://gist.github.com/patf/1ae99fdd15718483fc15b1e8c8f25fe2
This is a list of IP's that have been identified as problematic and that are now blocked from accessing any instance on Masto.host shared hosting.
Do let me know if you or any of your users reports losing access with a 403 Forbidden error.
I will be starting the update of all Masto.host hosted instances to Mastodon v2.4.0
This process will take some hours but each instance should only be down for a couple of minutes.
You can view the change log here: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v2.4.0
Let me know if you run any issues.
Good day! Managed to clean my inbox and pending to-do's. Tomorrow is tax filling day and will finally start to working on migrating Masto.host shared hosting databases to a new bare metal server 😅
I did this without any legal help just using common sense and following this: https://gdprchecklist.io/
If any of you have suggestions on how to improve it, I am all eyes/ears :)
Last night I went to DigitalOcean to try Spaces. I create a couple and did some testing. After a while, it started giving me an error when trying to access my Space via the interface. I opened a ticket, got a reply that they were looking into it and 24 hours later, still the same. WTH?!
I wanted to mark it as NSFW ;) not good to see pictures like this while stuck in an office
The summer is coming
