Re: Textpattern CMS demo site

PHP 8.0 Alpha 2 landed today. It’s compiled and running on a couple of the “Here Be Dragons” demo sites. I’m almost done with the landing page rebuild, when that’s ready I’ll tell you more.

I’m expecting an Nginx update later today, and there’s an outside chance PHP 7.3.20 & 7.4.8 will also be updated.

Re: Textpattern CMS demo site

I’ve had a notification from DigitalOcean that the demo site server is having some emergency maintenance now since the physical machine it’s located on is not performing correctly. Expect some turbulence, and a possibility that I might have to rebuild the server elsewhere if the maintenance is not 100% successful.

Start: 2020-07-24 07:00:00 (UTC)

Hello,

We have identified an issue on the physical machine hosting one or more of your Droplets, which are listed below. In order to minimize disruption, we will be migrating the Droplets to a healthier physical machine. Throughout the migration, Control Panel and API events – including: power offs, resizes, and attempts to destroy the Droplet – will not succeed for the affected Droplet(s).

In order to minimize downtime, we will attempt to perform live migrations in all possible cases. A live migration would result in no downtime, but minor performance decreases in disk I/O and a second or less of packet loss as the network is switched over to the new physical host.

In the event that we are not able to perform a live migration of a Droplet, we will perform an offline migration during which the Droplet will be powered off and migrated offline during the window.

We apologize for any inconvenience and will be happy to answer any questions or concerns – simply reply to this email or open a support ticket on your account.

Best Regards,
DigitalOcean Cloud Operations

Affected DigitalOcean resources:

[demo site server hostname]
[management url]

Re: Textpattern CMS demo site

I’m nearing completion of the demo server landing page rebuild, which is behind schedule due my work situation and brain chemicals not being quite right.

I’ve decided to focus on improving the image and file corpus after this overhaul, so medium term you should expect a set of demos with no content (i.e. identical to the Textpattern releases), and another set with a standard collection of safe for work images and files, hopefully in the order of hundreds of images across various types and a much richer selection of file downloads.

Re: Textpattern CMS demo site

Also, today marks the feature freeze of PHP 8.0, so we can start looking closer at the pre-release builds of that and see how Textpattern works on it.

Re: Textpattern CMS demo site

So, should we expect txp v5 to be developed with php8 in mind?

I would anticipate Textpattern 4.9 to have PHP 8 support, but since there are still hosts running PHP 5 I am not hopeful for rapid PHP 8 adoption.
