Message 79771 - Posted: 27 Sep 2014 | 5:11:57 UTC

Sometime on Sunday, September 28th we expect to take both the BOINC and PRPNet servers down for maintenance.

This is expected to happen sometime within a 24 hour period staring as early as 11:00 UTC. We expect the servers to be back up no later than 11:00 UTC on Monday.

The host machines that our virtual servers are running on are going to be rebooted sometime during that timeframe, and we want the database to be stopped when that occurs to avoid any chance of corrupting the database.

We will try to keep the downtime as short as possible, but since we don't know exactly when the servers will be rebooted, we may need to keep the servers shut down for a large part of the Window.

You may wish to increase your queue of tasks to 24 hours to make sure you don't run out of work.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Since the post about the planned downtime tomorrow, we've been having some serious problems with performance on the main BOINC server. We're looking into it, but at this time we don't have any information to share.

For now, BOINC is down, but we're keeping the web server up so the forums can be used.

PRPNet is not affected.

Message 79780 - Posted: 29 Sep 2014 | 17:36:08 UTC

There were unexpected problems, and we were down for a bit more than 48 hours, starting on Saturday. We ended up building a completely new BOINC server and upgraded the replica database server.

We also upgraded the operating system and a lot of the software that runs on the servers. That, in turn, mandated also building a new development server.

And all that was worked around the planned server maintenance that Rackspace was doing on Sunday.

The new server has a new IP address, but it may take up to a day for the DNS record to propagate down to your computer. If you're having trouble connecting, and rebooting your computer doesn't work, you may want to hardwire the name "www.primegrid.com" to the new IP address 23.253.170.196 in your computer's hosts file. If your computer is trying to connect to 192.237.182.110 it's trying to connect to the old server and that's not going to work. If you do have to use a hosts file, remember to remove the entry in 24 hours. Unfortunately, if you have this problem, you probably can't get to these forums to read about this work-around. The problem should resolve itself within 24 hours.

I've taken steps to keep tasks from missing their deadlines due to the outage. Any correct results returned to the server before Wednesday should get credit. If you have overdue tasks, PLEASE DO NOT ABORT THEM. They should be reported back to PrimeGrid, even if they're late.

I am sure I am not the only one with this question...

Where do we find the hosts file on Windows 7 or 8?

Google isn't helping me.

Thanks and glad to see us back!

The hosts file is:

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

for the last couple of Windows versions.

Hello!

Welcome back and thank You for all effort to make Primegrid even better!!

How I could come back....

First I did find this thread : http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=8633 where I got the new ip adress; copied and pasted this into my browser and then got access to the main site, but still could not send or receive wu's.

After some thinking I did "remember" that maybe both my modem and Wifi router both keep dns adresses?

First turned of modem then wifi router and restarted both , modem first then router,

PROBLEM SOLVED!!

Hope this can help other people, and please post this over at berkekey as I have no accout there!!


Thanks!

With regards,

Hi,
possible, there are some "broken links"
On page
http://www.primegrid.com/prefs.php?subset=project
I'm getting this messages:
Warning: Creating default object from empty value in /home/boinc/proj/html/inc/prefs_util.inc on line 220
Warning: Creating default object from empty value in /home/boinc/proj/html/project/project_specific_prefs.inc on line 836

The change of the project settings is possible


Thanks for pointing that out. If you see that anywhere else, please let us know.

You can ignore those warnings. It's a byproduct of all the upgrades we did over the weekend, in particular upgrading PHP. Something that was okay under the old PHP interpreter is now considered an error. It still works, but it spits out those warnings. We'll correct them as we find them. Thanks!

Happy to see Primegrid is back up. I've grown used to reading much of the technical discussion, past & present. I think I've learned a few things & its always fun to see another side to familiar people spanning a few years.

The last of my workunits were finally accepted
