Announcements / Major Email Changes
« on: March 11, 2016, 05:36:52 am »
So, spam hit again, and I'm moving to a new mail server. As such, it required a lot of work to reconfigure from the old system. I think I've got most things back to working, but if you have trouble with email here, please let me know. The most likely remaining problems are related to people with custom email domains hosted here.

If you're using your own email client, you need to use SMTP authentication with STARTTLS on port 587 (the "submission" port) to send mail now.

Also note, as email is what's being weird, please feel free to post here on the forums if you're having problems.

EDIT: Your ~/.esmtprc file should look something like this now:

identity =
        hostname =
        username = "user"
        password = "mypass"
        starttls = enabled

Sorry, it seems it got caught by my spam filter. I've pulled it out and it's pending in my inbox now though. Unfortunately, I'm running out the door, but I'll give it a proper response later tonight or tomorrow.

Announcements / Yesterday's Downtime (2015-09-21)
« on: September 22, 2015, 11:20:26 am »
Many services were offline yesterday, between about 8am and 3pm Pacific Daylight Time. Everything should be fixed now.

The cause was a filesystem glitch that caused one of the disks to behave like it was out of space, even when it should've had many gigabytes to spare. This prevented MySQL from running properly, which meant eventually DNS went down, and also caused problems for mail delivery (as new messages couldn't be created in home directories.)

It should all be fixed now, but if you encounter more problems, please let me know.

My apologies for the downtime.

*facepalm* An error log for the webserver filled up the root partition, and the mail server couldn't make temporary files for message handling. I cleared out the large log files and things seem to be working again.

I think I've fixed the webmail issue as well. Please let me know if you're still having problems. And, of course, the details of those problems.

PHP was upgraded, explaining the errors on the front page. I can't believe I didn't notice those earlier. As for mail... I use thunderbird daily myself, and haven't had problems.  Webmail I'm looking into, but if you can let me know what errors you get with thunderbird that will help.

Comment Test. Had some reports people couldn't post.

If enough people want a new look, and you can find a theme to agree on, I don't mind changing it.

Actually, it should be IMAP, port 143, and STARTTLS if you want security, and "normal password." Outgoing SMTP is port 25 (or 26 if your ISP blocks 25) also with STARTTLS and normal password.

Here, or somewhere else? Because I don't think I've even seen the word "filters" anywhere in the forum config or admin sections, much less enabled any. There is a "censored words" option, but its list is completely empty. Generally speaking, I hate censorship, and especially automated censorship, so I tend to avoid restrictions as much as possible. If someone abuses that, then they get warned, kicked, or banned as appropriate, but by a live human (me) and not a piece of code, so don't worry about it too much, unless you know your users are going to TRY to be jackasses. :-)

I don't have any formal rules, beyond those that apply to in general (on the info page at ), or that aren't stated when people register for an account. Basically it comes down to "don't be a jackass." If you want more specific, basically the standard stuff... no spam, no porn, no copyright infringement, no illegal content, no hate speech, no harassment, etc.

Here ya go! You should have moderation privileges for that board as well. Let me know if you have any questions or need anything else.

Yes actually, it's that simple. :-) Let me know what you'd like the section of forums to be titled, and I'll set it up.

There should be a way to delete the old host key. I'm not sure with fugu, but generally, there's a file in your home directory, inside the (hidden) .ssh folder called "known_hosts" You can basically just delete this, then it should treat it as a new server, not one that changed, and ask you to accept the new key the first time you connect.
