Server relaunch

Posted Jul 02, 2013

At the beginning of April, our hosting service asked us to migrate sfpix to their new server farm. They neglected to mention that the site would blow up in a half dozen different ways because of a mismatch between the kernel on our virtual machine and the one on the server it was running on. We've had widespread filesystem corruption and assorted wonkiness. I've been restoring the site from backups and doing little patchwork fixes until I've had time for a real solution.

When I came home two nights ago, I had a notification that the site was down, and when I tried to get it going again, the server wouldn't boot. I made one final backup of our data, wiped the server, and reinstalled from scratch. Hopefully, we're stable again.

I believe I've tested everything. Let us know if I've missed anything, or if anything starts to fail again. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience, and hope we can all get back to just enjoying some beautiful...

The Silverfox Archive went down again and failed to reboot on 6/30. All of the data was backed up from it, and the server has been reinstalled from scratch. We're currently reinstalling all of the photos. There are a lot of pix to be uploaded to the server, so it's a slow process. We hope to have the site up and running again tomorrow. We're sorry for the inconvenience, and thank everyone for your patience!

See you again soon, sfpix
