Wiki Status

08 Sep 2023

The wiki is down due to problems in the old server snapshot that prevent it from booting up properly.

The problem lies in the corrupted cloud-init service. I’m not sure how it got broken, but this instance has been around for a few years so it most likely happened over several upgrades between buster and bullseye. The result is I had to create a new image. That’s done, but since I switched from Apache to Nginx and updated PostgreSQL to the latest version I am rebuilding the wiki from scratch. Once I get used to the new systems, I’ll restore the data from the previous wiki of which I have nightly dumps. Its just a matter of getting things in place, restoring the tables and then updataing the tables for the newest version of MediaWiki.
