Random maintenance/outage(s) starting today


!iSurf Support

Hi all,

As I've posted about on the login screen, I'll be trying to get iSurf Social upgraded to the latest Friendica Release Candidate code. Yesterday had a failed attempt and some downtime while the site was restored, and there will be more outage time as I go through the updating process, and rolling back if necessary.

No need to worry if you can't connect to the site at any point over the next couple of days, just me working away on it.

The notice on the login page looks like this:

NOTICE: Aug 28, 2019 - We will be doing intermittent work on the site over the next few days in order to attempt an update to the latest release candidate code. The site may be offline entirely while some of these processes are ocurring. I will remove this notice once the work has completed successfully. Thanks for your patience!

So I've just gone through my 2nd attempt on this update, and it's got an issue. Will be investigating further before attempting again.



Some unexpected downtime this evening

Hi all!

It's been awhile. I went to do the update to the latest Friendica -rc version and had some issues. Unfortunately this -rc update has some significant database changes, so to roll back I had to restore from a snapshot I took just before attempting the upgrade.

Apologies if this affected you. I believe the next attempt at the -rc (after getting some clarifications around the issues I saw) will require some downtime in order to help it succeed, so I'll try and post an announcement about it.

All appears to be running fine again now.

Enjoy.

I see your post over on forum.friendi.ca, but on social.isurf.ca I don't have anything in the support forum in the past 6 days. I wonder what might be going on.

i have a noticed something similar, comparing the number of posts on forum.friendi.ca and the ones actually coming in on my node.

I guess it's not an issue with the forum node itself. Probably related the memory issue where posts get dropped, I suspect.

I'll post over a the forum to discussed this in more detail. I will mention you and ask others to check forum posts coming on their nodes.

Just saw you already posted over there. Followed up now.
