SORRY - Site outage May 6 2022

Hey All,

I know I’ve been quiet the last few months. Yesterday I was playing catch up on admin and mod stuff here, and made some rookie mistakes that took the site offline from about 11:30pm PST last night until about an hour ago. There was a little bit of data loss as I had to recover the site from a backup that was about 12-24 hours old. Sorry about that.

The site was not compromised at all. I made dumb sys admin moves because I’m rusty, and had to restore things on a new VPS from the day before yesterday’s backup. Everything should be good to go now.

IF ANYTHING IS WONKY please either comment here or DM me and I’ll see what I can do.

Sorry again

I had a window open from prior to what happened.
Waiting for me was a message at the top of the screen that read:
“Congratulations, you installed Discourse! Register a new admin account with BLANK to finalize configuration.”

Note that I did no installations, and I do not know who BLANK is.

I have no idea if the above is related to what took place with this site. But since this site had an issue, I thought it is worth mentioning it to see if there is a relationship.

When I clicked on anything, I was taking to this site’s login screen. Now that makes sense, since the site was down for a period. But the other message has me confused. Note that it was not a message where we type messages. It was at the top of the screen, presented by this web site.

That was me, and my email. Going to wipe out those details from your post, otherwise accurate.

This is unacceptable, first the price of Chia drops, then the Chia forum goes offline… what’s next?! I’m going on a hunger strike.
