Anyone volunteering to do the update? The biggest feature in this release is XMPP Chat. I hope our server can handle the increased load.

Final release is out as well. We need volunteers to pull the update.

Developers still don't recommend enabling chat.

@balasankarchelamat

Please put the link to that recommendation, it seems very strange to be included in the stable vercion and massively recomeinde not enabled, is one of the most desired features by many users.

Look at the end.

"diaspora* 0.5 includes a preview of the new chat feature, if you want to play with it, have a look at Vines. We do not generally recommend enabling this yet."

OK I think if the server can stand, might want to experiment with this, my opinion as a user: no problem if we suffer some momentary damages on behalf ofexperience :)

@balasankarchelamat thanks

I am also of the opinion we should try chat.

@balasankarchelamat @niteshajain did you folks try updating it yesterday?

It seems there isn't enough space on the disk to take dump backup of the database. @manukrishnantv and me are planning to setup mysql replication.. My internet is extremely flaky nowadays. Will try to do replication tonight (if I have a decent internet connection).

@balasankarchelamat Since all other sites in poddery server has been moved. You may remove the files and see if we can get enough space for backup now.

We can move the dumb and related files to Sooraj's Server, resize the hard disk and re-install everything.

Seems its better to go for database backup through replication after we run the 5.0 feature to remove old/inactive users/posts.

Ok. Will try it once I reach home (SSH is disabled in my college)

Pirate Praveen

Pirate Praveen May 13th, 2015 08:47

@balasankarchelamat try mosh, you may have to connect from home, suspend and reconnect from college since it uses ssh for authentication, but use port range 60000-61000. You may manually pass the port number too. You can try to connect via port 80 if those ports are blocked too :)

sudo setcap cap_net_bind_service=+ep /usr/bin/mosh-server
mosh -p 80 user@server

but if all udp is blocked, you can't work around that, you need to ask Meher Baba!

I've started a mysqldump on a screen session (and I guess poddery is down now. Low memory?? )

Pirate Praveen

Pirate Praveen May 13th, 2015 16:41

Balu, shouldn't we stop the pod before taking backup? It is better to keep the database state consistent.

Manu Krishnan T V

Manu Krishnan T V May 13th, 2015 17:07

Posted the maintenance plans from savepoddery account. Waiting for file transfers to complete, to stop the pod and generate the database dump.

Manu Krishnan T V

Manu Krishnan T V May 13th, 2015 17:26

The pod has been stopped. Starting MySQL dump. Might take around half an hour. Database is almost 18GB.

Migrations are still being run.. We have too much posts and comments. :)

Balasankar C May 14th, 2015 03:07

I've restarted diaspora, but poddery.com is saying "Can not connect to server". There seems to be some issue with sidekiq.

@manukrishnantv @praveenarimbrathod Can you please check what is the issue?? I am already late for college.

Pirate Praveen

Pirate Praveen May 14th, 2015 04:19

@balasankarchelamat Just started nginx and we are back in action again! Thanks Balu and Manu for the update. The sidekiq issue was a bug in init script check, I updated the init script.

Outcome
by Pirate Praveen April 25th, 2017 05:22

We can enable chat, now we need a volunteer to set it up.

I think we should enable chat. If we see some issues, we could disable it. Chat is an exciting, long awaited feature.

I think prosody is better than vines as xmpp server (more features and well tested, support for external clients etc)

Enabled chat and migrated diaspora.yml to 0.5.0.1 template. Use your favourite Jabber app to chat with your diaspora friends now! You need to allow chat in your aspects!

Something wrong with in poddery chat, I add screenshots to compare with another pod.

Screenshots save my misuse of the English language.

The step that I show in the screen capture capturachatdiasparg.png is not in poddery

Balasankar C

Balasankar C May 31st, 2015 16:40

@juansantiago Yeah. We know about the issue and are currently debugging what is causing it. Since chat is an alpha feature, there isn't much documentation that we can refer to.
Hope the issue will be solved soon. :)

PS : Thanks for the descriptive bug report. A picture truly is worth a 1000 words. :)
