WELL THAT WAS ROUGH

Posted by Kim on September 26, 2022, 11:00pm

It all started out so well. It was going great. And then... kaboom, kernel panics out the wazoo. After an absolutely hellacious day trying to get the old box to work, I gave up on it, spun up a new one, and transferred all our stuff across. The site is now mostly back up, though I'm still ironing out some kinks.

We don't appear to have any data loss, just annoyance (and if you're me, exhaustion.)

I'm still up jumping on things that crop up in the error log and getting the straggling bits of the site back online. Thank you for bearing with me through all this.

Thank you Kim, for all you do for this site. It is most appreciated.

I do mean that. Even if I can be an ass at times.

Goodness gracious, that is some serious dedication and I understand the panic! I am very much the same way when it comes to trying to make something better if only to slip up somehow. I always make big ol' goofs, but you done good, kid!

I hope the rest of the process goes smoothly for you and want to thank you for taking such good care of us. Good luck and thank you as well for keeping us posted! 😊

I was at work for most of the explosion. But right before work I was like 'is it my internet or is RPR down?' Ty for all the hard work you do for us Kim.

I just woke up and saw that the site was down when it was supposed to be up like four hours ago. I knew all Hell broke loose in the old server room. I'm happy you got it back up, though!

Thank you for all your hard work! We all appreciate you! I wish so much didn’t happen because I bet it was stressful. I hope you can take a moment to step back and relax <3 Thank you so much again.

I'm glad you were able to work things out. I was worried when I wasn't able to get into RPR while I was on lunch at work. Wishing you well and best of luck in ironing out the kinks you may have missed.

OOOOKAY. Most stuff is working. It's past midnight. I'm going to try and get some sleep and look forward to tackling more bug reports in the morning.

Get those accolades, people! ;) https://www.rprepository.com/help/profile-badges-directory#357

I have worked enough in the tech biz to get slightly twitchy at words like "updates and maintenance" (worked at a major internet/ cable provider when the severs "melted" causing a lot of angry people to go without internet and cable.) I just saying I feel the anxiety! thank you so much for getting everything back up and running! appreciate you!

I said it before, and I'll say it again. :D

Yikahooties, this didn't turn out well. Congrats to Kim for battling through it. Forget RPR for a few hours, have some tea and a long bath, and just take some "me" time. You certainly deserve it.
