Author Topic: Adding new servers to the forum - COMPLETE  (Read 11503 times)

Offline Chris Bergin

Just a pre-emptive note, we're adding new servers (fancy cloud servers) to the set up, which will involve a database port. We're doubled up on the existing servers, so most has been transferred across and mirrored, but the final live port to get the new set up in line will be the "event".

These new server hamsters will add more muscle to the capability of the forum ahead of the big events of 2019. It's a set up where you can plug in even more servers within moments. All very clever. Not foolproof as I bet being hotlinked by Elon would kill most sites, but it's about coping with these major launches of next year, etc.

Thanks AGAIN to our great L2 membership that literally pays for these improvements.

Obviously we won't be doing any work until after the SpaceX launch now that's pushed into the 22nd.

OK, we're going for it at 11pm UTC, 6pm Eastern.

Forum will be down for about 30 mins, no more than an hour. When it returns, we'll appreciate everyone checking all works fine for you as beta testing caught most things, but there's usually always something :)

My bad, missed a spot but the Feed is working again.

Offline Chris Bergin

The 60 second 502 was the fix getting implemented. Should be good now (wasn't when you guys posted, as I got the same thing). Try again and report back please! :)

Is it your intent that Tapatalk is not working since the upgrade?

Not our intent, so can you give us more details on what's not working ? (error message etc..)

I appear to be logged in, can’t see any forum messages, unread is empty. Timeline and Unread just show No Topic.

Edit: app version 8.0.3 (2098), iOS version 12.1.2

No error codes.

Same with me - Tapatalk isn’t showing anything unread, timeline, participated (anywhere).


I then logged out but now it won’t let me log in (log in credentials ok as I tried logging out and back in via the web just fine).

I got an Error message from xmlrpc.php about something  out of a loop. Can't recreate and didn't take a screenshot.

Edit: The error message is "Server error occurred: 'continue' not in the 'loop' or 'switch' context (xmlrpcresp.php:1991)

You want to be inspired by things. You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great. That's what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It's about believing in the future and believing the future will be better than the past. And I can't think of anything more exciting than being out there among the stars.

I have a different Tapatalk issue on iOS. It appears to correctly list the threads I have notifications for, with correct times of most recent postings. However, if I click on any thread to view then I get the attached. Clicking on the link just goes to the forum homepage.

So some interactions between Tapatalk and the servers seem to be ok but clearly not all.

Ugh, so I removed NASASpaceFlight from my Tapatalk account, logged out of Tapatalk proper, logged back into Tapatalk then tried adding NSF back into my account.


This is what I get...

Update:

Notification e-mails should be working again now.

502 Error for some using a mobile theme in Safari should be fixed now.

Tapatalk fix in work for later today (will update).

Works for me again on Windows Phone after clearing cache 

Offline Chris Bergin

iOS, Android, Windows Phone (good note about cache there)....looks like we can chalk this one up as a win! (But please, all who had an issue report back for extra confidence).

Pretty sure that was the only last remaining issue from the port! Now to see how these new server hamsters perform during surges and such!

I don’t know if it was to do with Tapatalk but I’ve only just been able to find the forum, earlier on it was saying it didn’t exist.

Update.

Seen I am not the only one who faced this issue.

An hour ago I was getting an error in Safari on iOS when liking or unliking a post. It would throw an error screen saying “Safari cannot open the page because it could not connect to the server.” and the address was localhost. Hitting the back button went back to the page, and I could see that the like or unlike had worked.

I had to step away and by the time I came back it now seems to be working again.

A small number of users experienced a 502 error in the last few minutes due to some configuration patching after the migration1, sorry for the inconvenience.

If the server hamsters give you any trouble just message me and I'll send my ball python Fang Shui to properly motivate them ;)

Offline Chris Bergin

We added another server due to demand as the set up allows a quick plug in of extra servers.

Sure is coping well with this level of demand!

(And still rising).
