/tech/ thread restoration/archive? Anonymous 06/29/2017 (Thu) 15:24:34 [Preview] No. 6619 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
There's a thread that had some useful information for something I'm working on but it has apparently vanished. Strangely, the thread is not in the logs as having been deleted, so did it just fall off due to being really old? It is my fault for not archiving, but I only just came across it about a week ago. Going through the logs it looks like /tech/ cleaned a bunch of shit on June 26, but this particular thread isn't listed anywhere as having been purged.

https://endchan.xyz/tech/res/597.html

Requesting backup or archive if possible. Thanks very much.

This thread?

The board was slid by a spammer. Endchan doesn't keep backups.

I use a private VPN service so I can still access this fine without a need for Tor. Many private VPN services are pretty cheap if you purchase the yearly deal. Cost averages around $50 per year, and you can routinely change IPs anytime you please.

LynxChan just completed it's third year and I must say, this project's past year was pretty good. More and more sites running it, including 2 more that migrated and have a considerable amount of traffic. 1.9 and 2.0 fixed it's oldest woes, eliminating slow build times entirely and making the cache much more robust.

Moving forward, I have realized that user-owned boards just didn't caught on. To this day, endchan is still the only LynxChan with relevant traffic that allows it. While I don't think it's worth doing a 180 on how settings and features work to change the focus of the engine, I am going to focus on improving features that benefit sites without user-owned boards. For this, I really encourage chan owners to bring me suggestions of areas that can use improvement for these sites.

I'd like to take this time to thank everyone who contributed this past year. Megamilk, for giving 1.8 and later versions a proper real-world testing. Odilitime for taking his time to test 2.0, which revealed a serious bug. And fapchan for giving a proper migration to be performed, it really helped to pave the way for future migrations.

I'd also like to remember past contributors such as lleaff for giving valuable insight on the very early stages of development, dunecoon for his work with front-ends and doke for designing the face of the project.

I had a development server breached that I had an old development copy of the Endchan database (without media).

All users are advised to change their passwords ASAP.

Development server was breached used an redis/ssh exploit. Redis was installed and usually ran as a user but recently doing some development work, I accidentally started it up as root to look something up and left it running. Redis then can write to your ssh keys and insert unwanted keys and allow root access. All files in /root and /home were removed and a note was left:

>Hi, please view here: http://pastebin.com/raw/vadfLyDS for information on how to obtain your files!

Luckily I have bandwidth logs on that box and I can see there was nothing transferred out of the box. So my guess is they just deleted the files. The nature in which they left the machine leads me to believe this was an automated attack (plenty of other meaningful data directories were left alone).

The copy of Endchan's data is left untouched on this development server. However the dump that was used to transfer the copy was still likely in the /root directory that was deleted. I will get the date of the data copy as soon as I can do some data recovery on that machine, I estimated the copy to be an early 2016 Q2 dump. This server is now offline.

At Endchan, we want to be as transparent as we possibly can and even though we do not believe anything was leaked, we cannot rule out nothing happen with 100%. And even if we could be certain that nothing was at risk, we still want to report anything of this nature to our users.

I fucked up, I'm sorry for any troubles this may and has caused any of you.

Please let us know any questions you may have.

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.

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