hi I was trying to install some imageboards on web server but was having some trouble since I am kind of a noob and also the server is very finicky with file permissions, or something is up that i don't get.

Will you all make fun of me if I try installing lynxchan and come back here with more stupid questions or nah?

Seriously, fam. Why no ELKS flag? Anonymous 10/07/2019 (Mon) 20:18:08 [Preview] No.13784 del
Never any telling how others may react, and there is always some autist about who will yell at you to go elsewhere because the board never had that topic up for discussion.
I would like for there to be discussions here, even for/with newbs. Endchan runs on Lynxchan, so it seems apropos for having at least one thread here.
I recently setup a Lynxchan instance for my own edification, after about six previous halfhearted attempts over a year or so. It was only recently I had the time to go into full on bang-my-head-against-the-wall-until-the-fucking-thing-works-and-I-get-a-clue mode.
So, I say, ask away.

Like, here's a question. My Lynxchan instance stopped serving captcha images for no apparent reason. Why? Anybody?

A Lynxchan / mongodb full application restart cleared up the issue. For now. Not knowing what caused it means it's guaranteed to happen again. Randomly required application restarts are good enough for paid Microsoft products, but come on.

>what's this?
Stuff not /tech/ related. At best, it's insanely boring /people/ and /personalities/ trivia. At worst, it's an insanely boring waste of time. There's no way to guarantee this is an actual unedited conversation between the people purported to be having it. I don't care what proof there may be of it. The subject matter is not worth the effort.
What the hell, though. I'll put on my robe and derp hat and roll with it, assuming this conversation to be true. Here are my impressions.

A user name? How (((amusing))).

>"8chan, 8chan, 8chan, reeeeee!"
Fred has an unhealthy obsession with 8chan. He's acting like he sold a house, and two years later that house mysteriously burned down. One might expect him to express some sadness over someone's loss of a bit of real estate with an interesting architecture, and move on. Instead, he's going on and on about how he sold it to a known pyromaniac. Might have been nice to hear just before, or just after the sale two years ago. Gee. Thanks, Fred. Still, his attitude is well documented from public comments elsewhere. Nothing new here.

>"But, they're gonna replace it with a trailer park!"
Ditto response. Boring. Let it go. Move on.

Maybe I'm missing something in the terminology here? Is that someone's user name?
Twenty years ago webrings linking together different sites were all the rage. Except the users didn't cooperate. They go to one site, do what they came to do, and skipped off. Turns out the only people who cared about webrings were deluded site operators desperate for traffic. So...?

>Lynxchan or GTFO!
>PSSST! Hey kid, you wanna make some monies installing Lynxchan for me?
What is missing from Lynxchan is a comprehensive howto installation guide, an administrative and customization guide, and a FAQ. Compare what support documentation is available with Mediawiki's installation and upgrade guides. The only disaster I ever encountered with Mediawiki took about two hours of reading and a half an hour of testing to fix. Lynxchan was a slog to get up and running, with multiple starting over from scratch attempts. But, it's very doable if you have experience with other large web application blobs (like Apache/MySQL/[Perl/PGP] CGI), and are willing to put in some time surfing the learning curve while taking notes. I should have taken more notes at the start.
I'd still like to see more /tech/ discussion of it here. Lynxchan, I mean. Not Stephen Lynx.

>Ignore the software bigots. Users don't care about the underlying system.
Truisms from the dawn of time. IBM knew all about that before Microsoft was a thing.

>Criticism of 8whatever administrative minutiae
More boring boredom.

Sure is if anyone follows your recommendations. We're all on v 2.2.17 of Lynxchan while waiting for 2.3.x to stabilize (for them who aren't so adventuresome).

What exactly happened? What did noCookieCaptcha.js returned you? I'd responded sooner, but I don't check most places I make these threads. I'd recommend you posting on lynxhub.com/halp or using irc.

>Stephen Lynx
Unlikely. I'm sure he has better things to do with his time than chase down helpdesk chores across the chanscape. At least, I dearly hope so.

>What exactly happened?
Problem resolved. I might make a youtube vid covering my saga with a patron attached. Seems to be the way these days; building up howto guides and the FAQs of olde be damned.

>I'd recommend you posting on lynxhub.com/halp or using irc.
Anyone who encounters Lynxchan with a desire to install it is also made aware of the official support systems in place from the get go. Yes, we all know.

My experience with the official support resources leads me to believe they are exactly the wrong mix of western imageboard attitude and let's-crush-dem-newbs elitism. Endchan /tech/ has been a more pleasantly casual board to interact with on a variety of topics. Based off of this poster: >>13782 I was hoping we could get something rolling between some newbs and more intermediate users to good effect. However, it seems we don't have any here who are both actively trying to get an instance of Lynxchan off the ground and willing to talk about it. Without them all we have left to discuss are advertisements, and secondhand internet drama. Eh. It be what it bees.

Anyway, if it's not obvious, my interest here is more about making a contribution to Endchan generally than to Lynxchan specifically. Yeah. I'm happy right where I am.

Finally, it can be a wee bit difficult projecting one's tone properly without endless revision. Please don't take my comments as disparaging, nor as an attempt to be merely an argumentative asshole. Just sayin what I'm seein' as I sees it in one pass.

You mean this wasn't already implemented?
Come on trannycoder, it took you to v 2.3?

This was discussed heavily all the way back in 2013 on 8chan. The general consensus is, why are you relying on the host to strip your exif? If the host knows your exif, your privacy is gone anyway. It just lulls idiots into a false sense of privacy and encourages lazy opsec.

I wonder when would post pinning/bumping in a thread(normal or cyclical+pinned) would become a thing, but is it too much power for jannies?
