Moderation action: pawoo.net has been officially banned.

Reason: several hundreds of fake accounts seeking interactions with our users. This had become a major nuisance.

Sorry about the outages in the last few hours (twice today: 2 minutes and 5 minutes). We are testing some new software and we had to turn off the web server for a short while to avoid creating security breaches.

@laitbattu Merci d’avoir mis l’avertissement. En effet, je ne suis pas sûr que tout le monde est capable d’apprécier ce style d’humour.

@lucia Bonjour,
Est-il possible de préciser exactement le problème ? Quel résultat est attendu et quel résultat se produit à la place ?
On parle bien de l’interface Web, autrement dit via un navigateur sur un ordi ?

@tux True! All the other services were restored immediately, only Mastodon web service was down.
Mastodon depends on a large list of Ruby scripts and a few of them hardcode specific versions of some system libraries.

Apologies for extended downtime during the afternoon. (About one hour.) We migrated to another server on another distro. Sadly there were dependencies problems (incompatible versions of libicu and libprotobuf) and it took a while to fix the problem.
Everything should be fine now.

@koala La liberté individuelle est au cœur de ce qui fait Mastodon.
Tu es libre, on n’oblige personne ni à rester ni à s’en aller. Mais si le cœur t’en dit, dis-nous ce qui te chagrine.
Ça permettra de mieux te comprendre, voire de te conseiller des alternatives, ou encore de lever d’éventuels malentendus.

The server runs version 2.7.4 now.

Downtime was exactly 2 seconds.
This was a minor update, we could compile easily and simply restart the processes at the end, this time.

The server runs version 2.7.2 now.

Downtime was exactly 2 seconds.
This was a minor update, we could compile easily and simply restart the processes at the end, this time.

The server runs version 2.7.1 now.

Downtime was 18 minutes and 57 seconds. Sorry about the inconvenience: compiling seems awfully slow with recent upgrades.

Notice to all local users: if you use the web interface, the Tutorial screen will pop up.

Don’t worry, it’s because of the recent upgrade. It will appear only on your first login.
