Maintenance Complete
Jan 16, 2018 - 6:31 AM - by Ai
The long period of server maintenance has been successfully completed, taking me a total of 8 hours - much better than my top estimate of 48!

Having tested PHP 5.6 with the current scripts, everything seems to be working fine with no new error messages, however I can't test every feature! If you encounter errors (including strange messages at the top of the page) please report them so I can investigate and if required revert our PHP version to 5.4 temporarily.

What was done:
  • Full backups of all the sites on the server were taken (3 hours!) and copied to the backup server.
  • The main server was wiped and given a fresh install of CentOS 7.4.
  • The control panel and base server software was installed.
  • Multiple versions of PHP were installed and templates created for the Control Panel to allow simple switching between them.
  • Additional software that will be required by XenForo (Elastic Search, Redis Cache etc) were installed alongside their relevant PHP extensions. (About an hour for the previous set of steps)
  • The backups were copied back to the main server and restored. (about 3 hours total)
  • Bugs were troubleshot.
  • Lots of swearing happened.
  • I made this post!

So now we are on a fresh server. There is still some backend work to do - mysql needs to be tuned for peak efficiency and php settings may need to be tweaked, but the bulk of the work is done.

Did you miss us when we were offline? Why not join us on Discord https://discord.gg/qxnyXC7 so next time you don't feel so alone! One of the cool new features of XenForo is that it will integrate with Discord and show your usergroup directly in the chatroom if you use the web based browser! Something to look forward to

Upcoming Maintenence
Jan 06, 2018 - 12:07 AM - by Ai
In preparation for upcoming script upgrades AnimeOTK.com (and all sister sites and hosted sites) will be closing for a long period of maintenence during which:

  • All sites will be redirected to a placeholder page informing everybody of ongoing maintenence.
  • Full fresh backups will be taken once all sites are turned off
  • These new fresh backups will be moved off of the server
  • The server will be wiped clean and given a fresh install of CentOS 7 or Ubuntu 16 LTS (not yet decided)
  • Hosting control panel will be set up again
  • PHP 5.3 will be installed alongside a hosting template so we can continue to run these old sites without issue.
  • PHP 5.6 will be installed alongside a hosting tempate so when we are ready to upgrade our scripts we can move straight to the newer, more secure and faster PHP
  • PHP 7.1 will be installed alongside a hosting template so it can be tested on the new scripts as well.
  • All data from the fresh backups will be restored to the server
  • All sites will be redirected back to this server and reopened as soon as their data is restored.
This is likely to take in excess of 48 hours to perform but will hopefully be much shorter. The exact time of this maintenence period is currently unknown but will likely be within the next month as my time allows. There will be only a brief period of notice (1 hour at most) prior to the sites going offline - apoogies for this inconvinience. It is a necessary evil in the quest to upgrade us to new scripts!
