    is jabberfr.org down?

  2. jonas’

    I heard claims that way, yes

  3. jonas’

    and ojn seems to see it as down, too

  4. pep.

    Problems at the hosting provider it seems

  5. nicoco

    OK, hopefully it's not a fire!

  6. nicoco

    datacenters sometimes turn to ashes in France

  9. jonas’

    that's so evil

  10. nicoco

    my first XMPP server is in this picture. and being a very amateurish admin, I did not suspect it could be a provider issue for about 2 hours, trying to understand what was wrong in my home network settings and/or my ssh config. fun memories :)

    > is jabberfr.org down? Seems up for me.

  13. jonas’

    ah it is now

  14. moparisthebest

    nicoco: did you have backups

  15. moparisthebest

    I also learned that lesson the hard way with a shady host many years ago

  16. nicoco

    > amateur admin NO. I do have daily backups now…

  17. jonas’

    people only ever learn backups the hard way

  18. jonas’

    I learnt it at age four or five or so

  19. jonas’

    when I confused a .lnk (on windows..) for the real thing

  20. jonas’

    and deleted the real thing

  21. jonas’


  22. nicoco

    I had some sort of backups, but they were so old that I didn't bother trying to restore them. Recreating the accounts seemed easier. I only have friends and family on my XMPP server, so it's OK...

  23. mathieui

    nicoco, FWIW https://statut.jabberfr.org is sometimes up-to-date

  24. nicoco

    thanks mathieui, I should have started there. I still can't connect to the MUCs though. are they back online? not that it's urgent or anything, just wondering if I broke something on my side now :)

  25. mathieui

    nicoco, everything is/should be back online

  26. mathieui

    it works fine here

  27. nicoco

    well, something's wrong on my end then, for some reason neither of my 2 prosody instances seem to reach *.jabberfr.org. I'll investigate...

  28. jonas’

    up-to-date, but also frencrypted :/

  29. Sapotaceae

    if in doubt, turn it off and back on 🙂

  30. Sapotaceae

    y'all do daily automatic reboots?

    I witnessed a guy lost film footage for nearly half a day shoot before. That was the last time I see him.

    vclub.tel: Hi there. What brings you to this corner of the community?

  35. mx

    vclub.tel: hi all, I operate a personal xmpp server to let my family in Iran contact other family members abroad. It's ejabberd. It works fine except that I noticed, I can not make omemo calls, unless I first make an unencrypted call first (both ends have to choose unencrypted calls once using conversation android). Is it expected or my server (at mehdix.org) it misconfigured? Last but not least thank you for keeping this corner of the internet alive :)
