Server migration this week

Post by dustin » Mon Mar 15, 2021 7:17 pm

I'll be moving the Sillysoft website and associated lux web services to a new server this week. It's possible there will be a bit of downtime. Sorry for any inconvenience...

Everything has been moved over to the new server now. It might take time for DNS to propagate for all people (some people may still see the old server contents for a day).

Please let me know if you notice anything broken, thanks!

Weekly reset had a little issue on the new server. I got it sorted out and it's done now, a little later then usual but should be back to normal time from now on

The only reason George "won" last week is 'cause no one passed him in the few hours after the missed reset. The "final" rankings and seedings reflect those additional post-reset games. Woulda been nice to calc rankings back to the usual reset time, and recalc later game scores so they counted for this week, rather than flushing them down the memory hole, but sure, okay.

FYI the server migration involved new hardware, updated OS, updated database, and updated version of PHP. So it was quite a big migration. A lot of Lux systems were created on significantly older software. So there have been a lot of small tweaks required to get everything running again on the new system. All bug reports are appreciated

If two consecutive weeks of bungled weekly resets is smooth, then yes, everyone thanks dustin.

Games in the last day: 46.
Games in the last 7 days: 335.
Games in the last 30 days: 1854.

Nearing all time lows. Just brutal.

(Of course, last two weekly resets didn't cause any loss of confidence.)

I only play if there is a good chance of receiving some verbal abuse, and a lot of nice guys are left in there.
