if anyone currently on cybre.space wants an invite to awoo.space just hmu

(please note that we have a different federation policy than most of the fediverse though)

update: the database transfer didn't take ages because sometime between today and two years ago when I last moved, someone added the `-c` (compress) option to the guide

ugh the database transfer will take ages, why is Mastodon keeping all posts anyways, there's no search

me: takes down awoospace
me: starts the database transfer

also me: hey let's check awoospace for new posts :)

Awoo.space is going down to move to the faster server now! Hopefully see you on the other side 😅

Yes, I know awoo.space is down again. The issue is even if I bring it back up we get absolutely destroyed with requests from other servers to the point that I can't even ssh in atm

okay yeah, customer support is confirming that there's a "temporary issue"

it says "Task in progress", but not what the task is…

seems like awoospace is down because ssdnodes is having trouble?

done, I guess? It was suprisingly painless, the test scripts complete now so I'm hoping I fixed it and it'll just come back up

if you ever posted something twice, it's gone now*

*it doesn't actually work that way

running a Mastodon instance is a fucking nightmare if you don't somehow already know everything about the tech involved, and then the documentation drops gems like this

SSDnodes has fast storage so I'm hoping this won't take all night

Show thread

I've decided to hopefully finally fix awoospace's database, wish me luck

ssdnodes is migrating the awoo.space VM now, I don't think it'll take long

seems like ssdnodes is "experiencing a higher than expected load", so awoo.space is down for now, hopefully they'll resolve it soon
