Title: Forum and wiki server upgrade on 25.10.2013
Post by: polly on October 22, 2013, 10:08:41 pm
Hey,

the server running wiki and forum on is quite a bit outdated.
So the i plan to do a major upgrade to most recent debian version on friday, 25.10.2013 (starting at 19.00 CEST).

i try to keep the downtime to a minimum.

how come?
i  wanted to do a upgrade to the wiki and setup a apache solr search coz' me and others complaining about finding anything in the wiki but php version is to old for the latest wiki version.
maybe more in case this worked ;-)

Cheers,
ochorocho

thanks, for paying attention :-)

currently i'm fighting against my own stupidity. A Backup ended in a 100% filled up hdd which forced me to reinstall.
Cant work on the forum till my core is up again.

current state of the forum is:
* Update to smf2 required to make ldap Auth plugin work
* smf2 upgrade worked after some db modifications which shouldnt be required when doing on the life system
* ldap auth plugin looks fine but i couldnt log in after doing all the setup stuff.

cheers,
ochorocho

On initial load all looks good, but once I log in as my user or descend into a sub-forum I loose all graphics.
Am I meant to be able to go further than initial page?

Hi ochorocho,
Great job,
Overall a much cleaner look, which i like a lot :)
A big improvement!
If i may, some design suggestions:
Its a nice feature that you can retract the top navigation bar :)
Thanks for all your work

I tried on a different browser and all appears as it should - sorry about that.
Must be something local I'll need to investigate.

It seems to work well and looks nice. The only thing it "needs" is to support mobile browsers better.  ;) I'm on my phone right now.

Hey.... i will investigate this later in the day. Weird thing is, it does not occur on ff nor chrome mac. But my bet putting jquery in noConflict mode will fix this.

The new design is appealing and looks good. Nice job.

The only question I have is it appears it is becoming a welcome spot for spammers.  I've already received notifications for two SPAM posts. Is there a piece that has yet to be implemented?

Nope, havent setup a spam protection yet.

Hey ...

finally forum and wiki are upgraded to the most recent version and i did a small redesign.
If you encounter any issues pm me.

Spam protection is done using a captcha during registration process.
Wiki authentication uses forum user table as before.
