Textpattern demo sites - status updates, issues, downtime, et cetera

Until further notice, I’ll be using this thread to notify you of demo sites status updates, anticipated downtime, that sort of thing.

Please also use this thread to report issues with the demo sites.

Re: Textpattern demo sites - status updates, issues, downtime, et cetera

Two pieces of news today:

I’m transferring / changing the domain registrar today. There should be minimal to zero downtime, but please be patient if things are not working. I am actively working on it, and if it goes wrong…trust me, I’ll know about it!

^^^ Done.

Completely unconnected, I am investigating an issue where the 4.8.5 dev-demo site isn’t applying the “Four Point Eight” theme correctly (i.e. it’s a blank page). Everything else is OK, just the theme. This is not connected to any Textpattern 4.8.5 changes and is related to me breaking something at my end. Mea culpa.

Updates will follow.

Re: Textpattern demo sites - status updates, issues, downtime, et cetera

Expect some wobbles with the demo sites from 1200UTC today (about 35 minutes from this post), I have various small (and a few not-so-small) issues to sort out, some of which will involve site rebuilds outside of the usual schedule.

Re: Textpattern demo sites - status updates, issues, downtime, et cetera

Previous version demo (aka prev-demo) will be decommissioned soon.

PHP 7.4 support was added in Textpattern 4.8.0. In order to run the previous version demo (currently Textpattern 4.7.3 released in 2019) there needs to be an instance of PHP 7.3, which is in the final months of security support, then it will be EOL’d.

I’ve removed the site from the landing page already, but please expect this (old) Textpattern demo to disappear soon.

I expect the wobbles to be done by 1500UTC. Thanks for your patience.

Re: Textpattern demo sites - status updates, issues, downtime, et cetera

Expect a short period of downtime at around 1400UTC today. I am upgrading the server, which requires a shutdown, then a resize of the attached drive + RAM, and then a boot up.

The whole process should take circa 5-10 minutes, so let’s say all clear by 1415UTC.

Edits: 1405UTC – underway, demo servers powered off. 1412UTC – all clear.

Re: Textpattern demo sites - status updates, issues, downtime, et cetera

Hi Pete,

users search seems completely broken on 4.8.8 demo site and returns no results on dev (works locally). Looks fine on release demo. No clue…

Investigating now – thanks for the report.

That’s 4.8.8 response (part of):

You mention it works locally – with what PHP version, please?

Re: Textpattern demo sites - status updates, issues, downtime, et cetera

I can reproduce this…though I’m not sure why.

The only difference with the dev-demo sites is that they use a table prefix: dev for the dev branch and four-eight-eight for the 4.8.8 branch.

Full stack trace:

2021/09/13 12:47:01 [error] 7596#7596: *2 FastCGI sent in stderr: "PHP message: PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught mysqli_sql_exception: Unknown column 'txp_users.name' in 'where clause' in /var/www/servers/textpattern.co/dev-demo/live/4.8.8/textpattern/lib/txplib_db.php:442

hp/php-fpm81.sock:", host: "dev-demo.textpattern.co", referrer: "https://dev-demo.textpattern.co/4.8.8/textpattern/index.php?event=admin"

It doesn’t seem to be a PHP 8.1 issue since it’s reproducible with PHP 8.0 on both sites.
