Migration odilitime 04/26/2018 (Thu) 07:10:34 [Preview] No. 8874 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I messed up during the migration. While waiting for the final database copy, I thought I'd upgrade/patch some servers, unfortunately I upgraded the box I was copying from. And I rebooted it without thinking about it. Now I manage around 20 servers that run hundreds of containers, so keeping track of everything isn't as easy as if I just had a couple. Also in my day job I get paid to professional move websites all the time. I make good money doing it, so I'm not a complete newb but I have no accounting for how I made such egregious error. I had a plan and just made a mistake.

Last year when we got the dedicated server, we built state of the art encryption into it. To the normal internet it looks like a website (unlike anything like Endchan) but with a special certificate our frontend server have, it runs the Endchan site. We split the drive into 3 sections, the camouflage (fake site / web server and relay), the app (lynxchan, megud, other site utilities), and the database. Then we encrypted the app and data drives. I held the keys to app, and Balrog the keys to data. We did have the foresight to give a back up of these password to other people just incase one of us got hit by a bus. Well Balrog and his backup StephenLynx both failed to find the correct password from a year ago.

So the two events combined means we can't access the latest copy of the Endchan data. So where does that leave us, well we had a full copy from 4/19 that we were syncing with the live data during the migration time. When it stop copying, it left the database in an inconsistent state. The mongo repair tool has done a great job recovering what you see;

we have most of posts but are missing a lot of database files (a great example of why you never store images in a database; we should only be missing the new files from last week on).

I fucked up, Balrog fucked up, and StephenLynx doesn't even remember us giving him the password. If just one of 4 events had gone another direction, we would not have been here.

I proposed throwing in the towel. My recent battles with pedospammers has not been fun but Balrog put it well: "we're still one of the only imageboards worth a damn and people need us goddamn it"

I considering just running the board with no content, even thought about switch imageboard software. Balrog said we should take it to a vote and let you guys decide. But to be honest we recovered more than I was expecting and the lynxchan repair process (rebuilding HTML files) is still running (going to take a long time on these older servers).

To be clear why we migrated, our donations levels were so low, we could no longer afford that server. Our previous server was awesome, a full year of uptime (Another reason why we never needed these passwords because the machine never went down).

In retrospect our set up was probably more complex than needed but it was just an attempt to help secure you're guys data the best we could. Our new drives are no longer encrypted.

I hate it too and I'm sure a lot of users are turned away by it.
The worst part is that the error is cached in your browser and stays there until you clear your cache or perform a hard refresh which most users don't know how to. Odil should add a no-cache header to that error page.


Anonymous 05/10/2018 (Thu) 11:27:07 [Preview] No.9066 del
Also, sometimes this happens to a specific javascript or json file and while the website looks fine if you try it perform an action. For instance it happened to upload.js yesterday and I couldn't upload anything. I had to open the browser console, open upload.js, and do a hard refresh pn that file.

/kc/ is reporting in with error reports.
Some images don't show up after posting them, their links give blank pages.
Too many (you)s in references. They are everywhere where they shouldn't be and sometimes not there where they should.
I get "Connection Failed" popups every now and then. First I thought at only uploads of images - in this case sometimes post does happen but without the content - but today I got one for a text only post.

That's it for now.

Yes, usually images that were previously upload. We lost about 400gb of files. We're working on a solution.

>Too many (you)s in references. They are everywhere where they shouldn't be and sometimes not there where they should.
Yea, I got to fix that.

It maybe the new crappy server we're on. Hard to tell. Only donations can fix this, right now.

>>8974
it's lynxchan and mongo. This is the way the database is design to fail by Lynx. There are multiple collections that support the imageboard software that make the site work. It's not designed to have 400gb of random holes missing. It mostly has to do with the file deduplication system that reduces bandwidth and storage costs.

To be fair, won't most databases fail when they are borked so badly half the entries vanish?

Accidents happen. What we really need in this situation is a backup system without an easily forgettable password.

I have noticed from my edits that if I get frustrated from the site not responding and click the button twice+ or edit more than once, ever, it causes the 404 bug. Same for clicking more than once to delete something.

I've said this before in another thread but not sure if you saw it before it was swarmed with trolls.

Why did you give the /sp/ mod special site privileges? That seems like a bad practice to hand out special favors. If you're going to give admin powers to the /sp/ BO then you should be giving them to the /pol/ BO as well.

Ok that sounds like there's a VERY remote chance it could be some global but like I said BOs don't get special crossboard powers. It's just not possible with lynxchan afaik.

I just audited our list of globals, removed all the globals that I think are inactive. If you're still active and I removed you, I'm sorry, let me know. But this should at least prevent these accounts from getting abused.

But again, it's more likely someone is making assumptions (correctly) and fucking with people.

Austin Serial Bomber Dead, Blows Himself Up After Shootout With Police Anonymous 03/21/2018 (Wed) 13:44:21 [Preview] No.8755 del
RELATED: >>>/news/7218 ; >>>/news/7456

The Austin serial bomber suspected of delivering six homemade bombs to locations around Austin this month, killing two people, has died after blowing himself up. Less than an hour after CBS Austin released photographs of the suspect at a Fed-X facility, media reported of an officer-involved shooting on I-35 in Round Rock.

Police have identified the dead suspected bomber as a 24-year-old white male, according to the Associated Press.

BREAKING: APD sources tell us that the #AustinBombings suspect is dead after this officer-involved shooting in Round Rock https://t.co/fmePDy2tkY https://t.co/FS1WMsLmHy

— CBS Austin (@cbsaustin) March 21, 2018

As CBS Austin reported, police were closing in on the suspect when he killed himself by detonating some sort of explosive device in his car, according to CBS Austin's source. People in the area reported hearing the explosion, the New York Times reported.

According to KVUE, the FBI and police tracked the bomber to a hotel in the Round Rock area using cell phone technology, security video, store receipts before 'engaging him' around 3 am on Wednesday. Then, as officers pursued the suspect a device was detonated, before a volley of gunfire.

CBS Austin reported that police pursued the bomber until he drove his car into a ditch off I-35. As officers approached, the bomber detonated a bomb in his car, killing himself and injuring an officer. CBS added that an 11-year veteran SWAT officer fired on the suspect. He has since been placed on administrative leave.

Austin Police Chief Brian Manley says the incident that led to the suspect's death will be investigated by the Austin Police Monitor and the Texas Rangers.
