Server Stabilization

Greetings once again! Sorry about the outage the other day. I guess that's what happens when you run out of tickets for the greatest event ever produced(*). Well, I guess the machine we migrated the ePlaya to just wasn't up to the task. And that even AFTER we moved the database elsewhere! So, we scr...

I'm sorry, but I can't make it use ALL formats at once, e.g.:

youtu.be or youtube/embed, but this style should work for the old posts.

Re: MY FAVORITE MOVIE ON YOUTUBE (TODAY) IS...

How are the old YouTube embeds done? I would prefer that old youtube embeds work properly, rather than make people switch to a new method. I can change it easily.

YouTube Embed restored

Hey gang!

I had no idea re-enabling the YouTube embedding would be so easy, or I'd'a done it ages ago. Sorry for the delay, and happy embedding!

Re: MySQL Troubles

Well, that sucked. I guess our hand was forced and we had to do it RIGHT NOW. So, the database is now running on a different machine. Let's hope that eliminates the problem and it's smooth sailing from here.

Thanks for your patience!

ePlaya Migration: TONIGHT!

Things have been moving forward with the new and improved eplaya and it's on track for the upgrade and transition. The old server will be taken down at 7:00pm PST with the service planned to be resuming in 24 hours, but if all goes well, the down time will be much shorter. Security, timing and the o...

Actually, this isn't the case. Avatars should be working fine, there was a mistake in identifying the partition the avatars are hosted on. That partition is fine and avatars should be working fine.

Greetings: Hi there! You may or may not have heard that we're working hard to get the ePlaya moved off of its old ailing server, onto some new hardware, as well as upgraded to the latest version of phpBB. Our goal is to twofold: - stabilize and secure the eplaya software & hardware - preserve (a...

Greetings! I'll be doing some database maintenance in the next 30 minutes that *might* make the ePlaya a little sluggish. Nothing major, just a database dump and restore to a mirror instance (copy). Just thought you should know. If I hadn't said anything, you probably wouldn't even notice. I'll repo...

Just a question, when you say "errant code introduce" do you mean generated by phpbb or someone managed to drop a bot? Still unclear, but I'm pretty sure that it wasn't a hack (bot as you say). Replacing the existing code with "old" code fixed it, so we'll be doing some heavy di...

I know this is O/T, but didn't there used to be an excellent "lists" section of the ePlaya? My searches don't find it. Can someone point me to it? I'm helping a friend prepare who's coming from Austria.

The W/W/W is derived from the Playa Calendar. All you need to do to get your event listed in the Guide is to submit it to the Playa Calendar online. I moderate the entries every few days. That's all there is to it!

And the server load and such was really out of whack so I gave it a nice reboot to see what would happen. Still seems to be sluggish. I have to run out right now, but let's see how it looks in one hour.

Hey there again! Just checking my email and found the eplaya down to my dismay. Investigating why. FYI, I'm setting up some monitoring for my own projects and I'll include eplaya in that so that I have visibility on it.

Apologies for the recent brief outage. We exceeded our power usage in our colocation facility while installing a new server. Steps are being taken to ensure this type of outage won't happen again. Thanks for you patience through this.
