Any issues, please let me know. Thanks

I will be starting the upgrade of all Masto.host hosted instances to v2.4.2

Let me know if you run into any issues.

All Masto.host hosted instances are now on V2.4.1

I managed to finish it all today :)

Let me know if you run into any issues.

This update is going to take a long time. Probably will not finish today.

Over 1 hour to update +/-15% of the instances.

Sorry but this deduplication of users is causing a some trouble.

I will let you know once I have finished

BTW: you can see the changelog for v2.4.1 here: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

I am going to start the upgrade of all Masto.host hosted instances to v2.4.1

Please expect a couple of minutes of downtime at any time during the next hours.

Any issues, let me know.

Migration Finished! ๐ŸŽ‰

All Masto.host shared hosting instances have been migrated to a new database server.

This new server has double the resources available and it's faster.

It was a lot of work but it should (hopefully) be good for the next months.

Keep tooting ๐Ÿ˜ and let me know if you notice anything strange with your Masto.host instances.

The migration of instances to the new database server continues today.

Let me know if you notice any issues. Thanks

I finished the migration of 20% of the shared instances to the new database server.

The problem that affected the migrated instances earlier is solved and should not be a problem again.

I will keep monitoring how things are going but all is looking good and expect to continue the migration of more instances tomorrow.

Let me know if you run into any issues.

What a nightmare! But it's solved.

Sorry to all the affected instances.

There is a problem, I had to restart the new database server and some instances are currently down.

Sorry about it

I will be starting a migration of all Masto.host shared instances to a new database server.

This will be a one by one process and will take some days.

Each instance should expect under 5 minutes of downtime.

Let me know if you run into any issues.

Thanks ๐Ÿ˜

To try and reduce the number of bots that lately have been hitting Mastodon, I have implemented @pfigel Naughty List: gist.github.com/patf/1ae99fdd1

This is a list of IP's that have been identified as problematic and that are now blocked from accessing any instance on Masto.host shared hosting.

Do let me know if you or any of your users reports losing access with a 403 Forbidden error.

All instances hosted by Masto.host are now running v2.4.0 ๐ŸŽ‰

Any issues, let me know

I will be starting the update of all Masto.host hosted instances to Mastodon v2.4.0

This process will take some hours but each instance should only be down for a couple of minutes.

You can view the change log here: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Let me know if you run any issues.

I was supposed to do the upgrade all instances to Mastodon v2.4.0 today but the database server problems drained all my time.

I've just finished manually checking every instance to double check that all is working properly ๐Ÿ˜“

So, the upgrade to v2.4.0 will happen tomorrow.

A million sorries, guys!

Everyone should be back up and running. Let me know if you still are having issues.

OK, so there is a problem with the new version of the database. I am working on it. Sorry about the downtime.

upgrade finished, all looking good ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I will be doing a PostgreSQL minor version upgrade.

All going well it will only be a couple of minutes of downtime ๐Ÿคž

I made a couple of suggested additions to the Privacy Policy page: masto.host/privacy/
