Regarding the recent downtime

Postby TB3 » Fri Aug 20, 2010 1:37 am

(Oh, before you freak out, this is wartonchan speaking. Using TB3's account with permission because I'm too lazy to make an account. Plus, no one would take me seriously anyway. :P)

As you all know, Lyoko Freak's forums was subject to an outage for the past 72 hours before the forum was brought back online.(Sheesh, TB3, I got your email... 10 times >.>)

To experience less headaches resulting from technobabble:
Forums are back online, yay! (Now skip to the bottom of the post)

For those wondering what in the name of Franz Hopper happened:
Apparently, someone decided to recompile php on the server, and both php and httpd configurations were updated in some way. We assume the one change to the php conf was the addition of zlib.output_compression=on.
(Yeah, whoever that guy on Livejournal who was blabbing about gzip compression, you're right! Grats, I award you 5 internets.)

Basically, it means gzip compression was turned on for all php files for default, instead of just one directory, so phpBB was doing "already-done work", hence, resulting in yay-funny-symbols! I know I skipped over a lot of things, but really, nothing special that happened.

Anyhoo, the forums were brought back online at 17:31 - 8/19/2010 wartonchan-standard-time(I call it WST)

If anyone would kindly remind Mewberries to make a backup of the LF forum database every month, that'd be great. Oh... no? Um... then every two months, perhaps every 3 or 4 months? Yeah, thanks! ^_^

Stay classy, my comrades.

-People involved in bring back the forums, nhjm449, wartonchan, Lyoko Computer(Who just sat there... laughing ._.)-

Because who doesn't love an ASCII explosion from the server unzipping already unzipped files? That must have been a total pain to track down, and I salute you.

Step 1, switch to a more reliable host that's not 1and1. Anybody who fails at correctly configuring mod_deflate doesn't deserve to have a webserver. This is item 641 on why I hate 1and1

But anyway, strange that mod_deflate recompresses what Zlib already compressed. But I learned something today: phpBB enforces Gzip compression.

And congratulations to xiaozanghou who somehow figured out it was Gzip. I was staring at the header below trying to figure out how you can screw up UTF-8 encoding for about an hour. So I add 5 more internetz to your prize.

<s>Why do I sense a lot of passive-aggressive comments in this post?</s> No matter...thank you, Warton! I didn't get much of the technobabble anyway but I'm glad someone fixed it.

Protip: We're not using 1and1 as our host lol. Dedicated hosting is a beautiful thing.

I've never heard of Ezzi.net.... *rewrites old posts to blame them*

I'm really confused though. If your on a dedicated host then why on earth does the server go down so much? Is Ezzi's gateway/dns server screwed up or something? It would seem a dedicated host would have 99.9% uptime like every other host claims, not this half ass stuff.

Anyway, Sorry 1and1!

Emphasis mine. xD Just have to say that what a dedicated host "claims" it offers, and what it actually delivers on, can be two entirely different things.

...Like pretty much everything else in the world. *sighs* ^^;
