I had yesterday a big issue with the Forum, im glad that its working today… i also reported the issue in github. Im glad that it fixed today, but it wasn’t the first time that i run into a issue like that.
Someone has a idea what happend yesterday? I only try to open the forum with firefox on my PC and Laptop and i additional try to open the forum with VPN, but allways this infinity coloured dots (loading issue).
Was this a redirection issue or something like that?
I also wanted to add, that in the night from 31.01 to 01.02 the problem still existed… the web statusinfo showed only a problem till the wednesday morning, but the issue was far longer then that.
As I understand it, there was an update to the forum software, but it went bad and made the forum unreachable until this afternoon (CET), when a backup was restored. Because of this, the last posts from before the problem occurred have unfortunately all gone missing, because they were not included in the backup.
The big problem was that the forum administrators are currently all traveling in order to meet up at FOSDEM this coming weekend.
@philm has to travel all the way from Asia to Europe, and @Yochanan also has to travel within the US first in order to then catch a flight to Europe. Luckily, both are on the Telegram channel for the Manjaro staff, and so I was able to contact them there about the forum being down. @philm tried to fix the problem yesterday, but he couldn’t get it to work, so either he or @Yochanan restored the backup today while in transit.
I did not see any new postings either… I had not yet joined either… Thanks for the update on the cause…
