Site reorganisation / move

There's still a whole bunch of links *inside* the forum, like posts, that will break if the old server disappears (and the .org DNS stops working). Can't do much about those :-/


Search & replace database entries matching hydrogenaudio.org, maybe?

We're moving to .io because the .org domain is still owned by Dibrom and he's increasingly hard to get hold off, and I need to be able to change our DNS configuration. If I can't reach him in a month or two the .org domain will stop functioning.


This seems like a rather drastic move. Was there a dispute over the old domain name? Is he planning to point hydrogenaudio.org at a porn site or just let it expire? I assume that he refuses to give you control of it.

Very reassuring to see even how old threads are dealt with by search engines is being properly taken care of.

Long live HA!

Though I understand your curiosity, shouldn't we avoid making assumptions on HA?

It would be an option, but might be tricky to get right. I guess it's not that important.

I'm the last person you should ask as I haven't heard from him in more than 2 years. The server that provides the NS for hydrogenaudio.org is going away. If I do nothing then in <2 months the site simply disappears overnight. I'd rather use that time to give the people time to update their links.

"hydrogenaudio.org" (case sensitive) is a rather unique string to search for and replace.

I'm only a relative novice at databases, but I would think the following statement (adapted to whatever database system you use) should be sufficient:
Code: [Select]
update `TABLE` set `FIELD` = replace(FIELD, 'hydrogenaudio.org/forums', 'hydrogenaud.io/forums');

Yeah I'll give it a try when we complete the other work. Today turned into a crash course on SELinux administration.

SELinux can be a pita, but it drastically increases the level of security if configured correctly.

Let’s stop the off-topic debate before it turns into one or more ideological food-fights.

Garf and the other admins, thank you for all your work, as always.

I'm surprised that you didn't also register hydrogenaudio.io. I doubt that everyone is going to remember the odd URL if/when hydrogenaudio.org goes flatline.

What happened to the guy who controls the old domain name? Is he living in a cave now? Nobody could knock on his door and ask "What's up"? You _really_ don't want that name to expire and then get pointed to some generic ad site.

Weird. If you do wrestle control of hydrogenaudio.org, do you change everything back??

What would be the point?

*shrug* they'll have updated their links, Google will have spidered the new domain and knows about the move because the redirects are in place, so searching will also point to the right place.

He has other passions in life now. We did hear something back finally after I stressed the importance, so who knows, maybe we can keep the old links working. In any case I'll keep the new domain as the main one, though I might make it "hydrogenaud.io" instead of "www.hydrogenaud.io" as someone else here already suggested.

FYI there are still some problems with the mail setup, depending on your ISP you might not be able to receive validation/registration/password reset emails. We're working on fixing this.

An old version of foobar2000 hosted site was migrated.  Download is one release behind (v1.3.1 vs. v1.3.2).

foobar2000.org should be up to date now.

Email/thread subscription/registration/verification issues should be fixed as well now.

The "Help" > "Check for new foobar2000 versions" and "Check for updated components" menu items in v1.3.2 produce an error.  Is this related?

Maybe. Will have to ask Peter to check what that is actually doing.
