Server Raid failure

The server hosting the forums had a raid card failure last night, unfortunately it took the datacenter techs 13+ hours to repair the server, but at least it's back up now.

I'm setting up a DR replication schedule today so if this server tanks I'll be able to spin up a separate system.

Re: Forum Upgrade - Issue Reports

Nobody has said anything so I'm assuming all is good?

I haven't seen any posts since Friday so I'm hoping everybody is out working on or driving their AA's.

Forum upgraded June 14, 2019

Hello AA'rs Tonight I upgraded the forum to the latest version. This was a particularly bumpy upgrade and the database backup I had created apparently was missing a few tables (argh!) so I couldn't roll back to the previous version like I have done in the past. It was either: roll back to last Febru...

NEW REGISTRATIONS - MUST READ!!

Hello future forum members! After you have registered for an account you MUST email the board admin to notify me that you have just registered for an account. The volume of BOT and SPAM registrations has gotten so bad that I'm unsure what is legit and what isn't. The obvious tip offs are there, but ...

Re: 504 KB Maximum Attachment Photo Sizes

The lower case 'i' is what is confusing the terminology. The forum software is a bit unusual in that respect, also the default language is UK English so that may be why the size terms are a bit off. The end result is pretty much the same, 1 MiB is 1024 KiB, or 1,048,576 Bytes, or 1MB. One mebibyte (...

Re: 504 KB Maximum Attachment Photo Sizes

The limit is actually 1Mb, so not sure why you can only attach a 504Kb file. 3 images is the limit for an individual post.

Re: Server Maintenance 4/25

Maintenance downtime was pretty quick, a failed drive was causing the raid controller to beep and the datacenter folks swapped the bad drive. File system has been rebuilt and we are all set.
