We are now on the v2.5.0RC1 version of Mastodon, wich support Federation Relays

We have activated the yiff.social relay.

CHANGELOG : github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

⚠️ We will update to Mastodon v2.5.0RC1 in a few minutes.

ℹ️ The SSL Certificate has been renewed on the new server.

(And of course, Mastodon was compiled with jemalloc, which limits the memory footprint to have more capacity)

Specs of the new Server :

CPU : Intel Xeon W3520 (8x2.66Ghz - 4c & 8t)
RAM : 16GB DDR3 ECC 1333 MHz
HDD : SoftRaid 2x2To SATA

The migration was longer than expected (no kidding), but everything is OK.

ElasticSearch has been disabled for now because we want to tune the server's to support the future loads.

We're up ! We are going to have some lags for half an hour because we have been off the grid for a while. But we are alive!

It's time for migration. We stop everything in a few minutes.

See you later :)

⚠️ We have a lot of network issues and swear to be resolved tomorrow with the migration planned. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Migration plan:
DNS will be lowered to a 10-minute TTL.
The new server will be configured with a test instance to make sure everything is working well.
meow.social will be shut down for approximately 3 hours.
The database, as well as all content, will be repatriated to the new server.
New instance start.
The old server will have a proxy to the new server, during the DNS migration times.

If all goes well. We start the migration at 2:00 PM GMT + 2. We reopen at 6:00 PM GMT + 2.

ℹ️ The migration is scheduled this weekend.

⚠️ meow.social was updated to the v2.4.4 of Mastodon.

No new features, just Security fixes.

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

⚠️ We are currently experiencing network problems (thank you Scaleway).

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Sorry for the lags, we have some problems, the server has decided to self kill himself.

Heya, just a little update about our about/more (meow.social/about/more) page on meow.social, wich contain our rules.

Please do not forward a report to the original toot instance if this is not explicitly forbidden in their rules.

Take the time to read the rules of the instance of a user who violates our rules to find out if they also break their rules.

Let's remain courteous! We have our rules, they have theirs. Our rules are not necessarily valid everywhere.

I HAVE THE KEY OF THE NEW MEOW.SOCIAL SERVER 🔑🍾

New server on the way

Intel W3520 - 16GB DDR3 ECC 1333 MHz - SoftRaid 2x2To SATA

Hey folks, after the heavy load from the new wave of users, we are currently organizing the switch to a new server, more powerful, and hopefully more reliable.
No ETA on when exactly the switch and thus downtime will happen for now, but we will keep you updated!
