Awrite I am gonna abort this with no change for a while because I really do not have the brainpower to delve into nginx configuration tonight.

I have had a look at the problem, and begun to think about it, and put out a request for some help, and that is enough for now; really all I put on my agenda for today was "start fucking with migrating media to Jortage" and I sure did do that!

Hmmm you know what I should back up the server before doing any of these things I'm looking at. Taking it down for a bit for that.

bleep bloop, time to get to hackin'!

I'm really impressed by the "welcome to Jortage" page that Una made, it's stuffed with a complete capsule guide for migrating your media from your local server to an Amazon S3-compatible server, with lots of stuff to cut and paste so you hopefully have a LOT less swearing to do. admin stuff: image migration 

Awrite stylish folks, I am going to start fooling around with permanently fixing the "media drive keeps getting filled up" problem today. I think it looks like this should be able to happen while the site keeps running, but there may be a reboot or two involved.

As always, you can keep an eye on @mollypolynomial and/or @egypturnash for any news about serious downtimes.

Ah webpacker. Always compiles everything so fast. *twiddles thumbs*

Huh. I thought the stuff I did yesterday to reduce disc usage didn't take, but I guess Digital Ocean's graphs just didn't update properly. Huzzah, that lets me put off some other stuff for a good while!

(That cliff at the right of the graph happened yesterday; it's been slowly climbing at the usual rate since then.)

Anyway right now I am watching Docker rebuild all of Mastodon's dependencies so my two little one-line changes will take.

Okay we are going down to push a couple of minor changes. Check out @mollypolynomial for updates.

okay so there was a patch to that particular migration that I applied and now it migrated.

Running the "find duplicate usernames" task returns absolutely nothing. Interesting.

Awrite so it looks like the migration is failing on the FixAccountsUniqueIndex migration, which was failing for OTHER reasons on my local installation.

"PG::UndefinedTable: ERROR: relation "custom_filters" does not exist"


ugh the backup isn't running properly :(

well hell let's try updating again and double-check every step

I wonder if restoring the backup is gonna take as long as making it did.

Okay something has gone wrong, my apologies. Gonna revert to the snapshot I took before updating.

AWRITE STYLISH DRAGONS it looks like things are running again. <3
