Announcements / Due to Upgrade, Password Updates Required Soon
« Last post by Xepher on October 24, 2021, 09:28:14 pm »
Starting next week (November 1st) there will be an upgrade to some of the core system software on the server. This will obsolete old passwords (set before around 2008) which are stored using weaker md5 hashes. Support for those is going away in the cryptography library used by service pieces of software (including SFTP.) Everyone who hasn't changed their password in the past few years will need to do so, or potentially be locked out of some services until they do.

To change your password, go to https://xepher.net/user-services/ and login with your old/current password, then change it. Note that if you use MySQL for things like wordpress, this will change your database password as well, so you may need to update your wordpress (or other software) configs. For wordpress, that typically just means editing wp-config.php. This would also be a good time to make sure that file is secure (it does contain your password after all) so click the properties for that file and set the permissions so ONLY user (you) have read/write access (for you nerd types, "chmod 600 wp-config.php".) Remove the access from group and other/world so no one else can view it. You should do this for any other web software you may be using... any file where you have your own password stored.

If you have any questions or problems, just let me know!

I managed to change it, but I am trying to change it again.
When I go to what should be the new page via google, I still get the old page on my screen, but when I click the page on SCP I get the new one.
What is wrong?

I've no real idea.... that was years ago. My guess is that those are probably periods where I was upgrading software or changing the logging system and something glitched. I've done my best to preserve old data, but sometimes that just fails and new systems miss a step. Sorry.

I finally got around to looking at my statistics. In a typical month I get a hundred-bippity-bip unique visitors (I know my website is not google.com, so I am not disappointed). Sometimes (I guess when I post a link on a forum or something) I get significantly more.
But in those two months I got bubkis. A line of goose eggs.
What happened?

I've resent them. It should be coming from a xepher.net address, so check your spam folder.

I'm sorry, either it got lost in cyberspace or I accidentally deleted it.
Could you resend?

I sure don't remember these details (password, etc.). Could you email them to my new email toastmastermazanec@gmail.com ?
