Just a quick note... GitHub was inaccessible earlier today. Everything should be okay now.

Time for another offline backup... should be about 20 minutes later this evening the 15th of April, 2017. This should give you all time to finish your taxes in the US. ;)

Going down for some server maintenance in a few minutes. I will be logging everyone off so you'll have to log back in.

Expected down time shouldn't be more than 15 minutes perhaps less.

Thanks for your patience.

To make everyone aware our VPS may schedule a reboot of our server, to handle the CPU issue everyone has been buzzing about since January'ish, at any point in which case we may be offline until the site is restarted. This is currently by design.

If I notice it is stopped then I'll restart it when the back-end stability is confirmed... if one of you does see it before me please open an issue on Development.

We haven't gotten any emails yet but there are notices saying it will probably happen.

Thanks

Well they finally got around to rebooting our host... hopefully this is the only time.

In about 10 hours we need to do another snapshot of the system here... down time should be the usual of about 30 minutes to 1 hour... maybe less.

Thanks for your patience.

Backup took approximately ~35 minutes... and back online.

Sometime in the next 24 hours a backup is scheduled... not sure on the time since it's a new VPS and it might be faster or slower since it's bigger.

~13 minutes to do the maintenance... and back online. Thanks for the patience.

Had some data loss in the production database. Lost the corrupted data between the hours of ~2021 12 23 03:03 to approximately 2021 12 23 12:00 UTC to be exact.

Major Apologies... at least we had a very recent backup.

Not sure what was wrong... even the core restore didn't work and had to drop the entire DB to restore... which is not normal.

Once again MAJOR APOLOGIES!

Please update your scripts if you did that between that period.

Impact assessment

The following were the affected scripts rebuilt from the log:

Specifically the DB, which is the metadata for when it was published, when it was updated was impacted. AWS, which is the source code, is still present on AWS. However if your script is missing in your script list (That would be you @Temm ) then it will be orphaned until you upload it again.

  1. Any new users that signed up between that period were lost.
  2. Any changes to Script Info between that period were lost.
  3. Any changes to Profiles between that period were lost.
  4. etc.
