Latest upgrades on LAShTAL
« on: May 11, 2012, 11:03:29 am »
Hi all,

I've done some major system upgrades this morning - site has been down for some 10 minutes. I really did my best to have the shortest possible downtime. I've migrated the whole system to new PHP which should bring better security and speed. Please let me know if you see any page crashing - there shouldn't be anything crashing, though cause I've removed almost all the old code.

The Merchandise and Book Shop links have been removed from the Resources menu: total income generated from both ventures in the last six months was precisely zero.

I would not be averse to having membership be paid, and then we could get features that are not available to non-loggable-in types, like i dont know, commons-use thelemic pdfs that are hard to find, or rare photos or something. I just want you to get the income you need to keep the site up. I like the new changes very much.

Hi Ian,

Thank you. It was one hell of a job to migrate Nuke database into Joomla!/SMF. There is still work to be done but compared to what's behind us it's nothing. :D

Hi all,

There was a problem with portal login up for a while but it has been solved. I've had to do an urgent upgrade of Joomla! which broke our login system. I've managed to fix it. If you experience any issues with portal login form clear your browser cache and try again. This issue hasn't affected forums though. Sorry for this inconvenience.

Hi all,

Another important upgrade - this time PHP was upgraded on the server to it's latest version to fix some security issues previous version had. As far as I see everything is running fine. We've had short downtime a few moments ago - ~5sec downtime. :)

Due to extraordinary demand, I have enabled the Galleries for registered members. It's available under the Resources menu. This should be considered to be 'in beta' - please report any problems to webmaster@lashtal.com
