Website Issues (Oct 12, 2019)

Post by Nymphetamine » Sat Oct 12, 2019 9:12 pm

Today, while the site host was working on trying to upgrade the installs of the MediaWiki and phpBB softwares that we use on the site, a number of underlying errors were discovered. The installs for both softwares became unstable and corrupted, and the host was forced into restoring from the most recent backup, which was a site snapshot from Sept 29th. (The site is scheduled to perform a snapshot backup at midnight on Sunday night, we are currently investigating why a snapshot wasn't taken on Oct. 6th.)

Unfortunately, everything that has been changed about the site since then have been lost, including the announcements regarding the changes in policy, the intent to focus more on Discord, the sign ups for the city council and tournaments, at least two Rumor Mills, and any updates that had been made to the wiki.

In addition to these losses, we're now in the process of examining how we regulate accounts accessing the wiki, as the bridge plugin between MediaWiki and phpBB is no longer supported in the wake of MediaWiki's redesigned authentication protocols. Further announcements will follow once we determine the best way to handle access to the wiki.
