Message from Andy just under an hour ago:

Hi All,


A brief update for you:


Gradually services are being restored. You will see that the www.cpdn.org/cpdnboinc site is now back and the message boards are also back. However the project is still offline, I am currently working on non-trivial issue with the apache configuration of the cgi link, without this link working the project cannot be brought back online.


Best regards,

Andy

As an academic exercise (The more so because it was done from Linux) I tried attaching to the old url today and succeeded. However, attempting to update gives

No great surprise but in anticipation I have set backup projects to no new tasks and when the server response is more positive will try switching back to WINE to try and get some work.

More from Andy

Hi All,


Just to let you all know: the main project has now been restored. I have now rebuilt all the main project servers and services, and re-enabled the project. The project is now running from a new server: 'caerus.oerc'.


The project is currently only running from a master database, there is currently no slave server. The project has ordered a new machine to replace the slave database. Until the slave database machine arrives the project will be taken down on regular occasions to take a dump of the database.


Please let me know if you spot any issues.

Best regards,

Andy


I am still getting internet access OK project servers may be down message despite servers shown as running on their status page. I have let Andy know about this. He suggested reconnecting but that hasn't made any difference (yet.)

When is the results database going to be updated ?

I have a load of tasks showing as in progress in my website account that I have already run, completed and returned. Also credit is down by about 1.7 million from what it had been.

I expect there will be a few teething problems before this is all sorted out. I don't know what if anything was lost completely from the corruption of the database caused by the problems with the VM

I am now getting this instead of servers may be down message. I have let Andy know. About half an hour or so ago, he re-implemented https and something is obviously wrong with this.

I am reminded of how difficult it was to get CPDN running on Linux in the early days of 64bit Linux.

Andy has made some changes and I have let him have the new output from the event log saying what isn't working! I guess there will shortly be another change based on my own or others' feedback.

And the tasks ready to download may be a red herring as 300+ of them are hadam3cs tasks which are probably very old re-issues.

I'm guessing this is an old backup as half the credit is missing. Free-DC has me at 1,170,432 but here I'm at 570k. There's a bunch of other work w/o credit on top of that as well. Hopefully the work returned while the server was accepting work is still useful data.

I do not get new tasks. Also the finished parts will be not uploaded. Is this a general problem or a local one?

This is a general problem. There is a problem with the https authentication. Andy believes he has the answer but has gone over the number of authentication certificates that can be issued in a give time period. Not sure what the limit is and when the time period expires allowing him to try again. With luck it will be sometime today.

Some progress. Able to attach what is effectively a new computer to the project now. Still getting authentication issues on trying to get work/update. I have sent Andy the bits from the event log that are relevant.

Not sure if this is related to the ongoing issues but my account on bamstats shows a climate prediction credit for today of -995,953 thats almost 75% of my credits since joining the project in 2012 wiped out. (the project was dormant for a while but reactivated earlier this year Jan/Feb) What going on?

About 6 weeks ago, it was discovered that a problem with the virtual machine that ran the database in Oxford was corrupting said database. I don't know how far back Andy has had to go to ensure a clean backup.

I don't know what jiggery pokery (technical term) is possible with regards to restoring information about tasks processed since the back up and the associated credit. I would guess that most of this is recoverable but that any work on sorting that part of the project out will not happen until after Andy has got the project up and running again.

Hi Art, Andy is aware of this. He needs to, "get a new certificate from one of the listed providers" and presumably install it into the BOINC server software. Once that is done, fingers crossed, we might be ready to go but there again, we thought things might be ready a few days ago till some of us actually tried to attach the project or to update. At least we are getting further up the chain before an error message appears.

I've just lost 43,376 credits from CPDN, a drop of 15%. That's small beer compared with zaphod80013, but it's significant enough to result in my Boinc world ranking dropping 699 places today, instead of its usual increase. Will credits be restored?

And I still can't report my last WU as complete, even though some people have been, according to Boinc Stats.

There's no information available about fine details, however the secure url is working for browsers.
This is: Main page

The unsecure url may work for some people and not for others. Andy has stopped the automatic forwarding of HTTP to HTTPS.

There's really only one way to find out what will happen to various items in the future, and that is to wait until the future arrives and then to look around.

So could everyone please remain calm until the boat docks and is securely moored.
