[FIN] More Server Updates

Posted 3 years, 1 month ago (Edited 3 years, 1 month ago) by admin

Two heads ups for server updates; these are both backend changes which should be invisible if everything went well:

  • I’ve run a bunch of updates & upgrades on the crons server (this is the server responsible for running timed jobs, such as updating random characters on the front page, mass watermarking images, weekly invitation code generation, etc.)
  • Watermark overlay images (eg. the overlays uploaded on this page) have now been moved to a new image server. If any of your overlay images are broken, or if you’re experiencing odd behaviour with watermarking, please let me know by filing a HelpDesk ticket.

I’ll be monitoring the updates and ironing out any issues; as usual, please let me know if you see anything unexpected.

This is preparation for (hopefully!) moving the site to a new server in early 2021 which will (hopefully!!) be a more stable setup. I'll be posting another update with more information if the feasibility checks work out
