Apologies for the extended downtime! We have found a rather substantial bug in our KVM setup, which prevented us from rebooting almost all VMs on one of our host machines yesterday. Fortunately, we were able to fix it for good this morning and everything is back up now. And we also ensured that this cannot happen again.
All upgrades have been applied successfully. Check the release notes of Mastodon 3.3.0 and 3.4.0 for all notable new features:
For our Tor users:
We have updated the onion address for kosmos.social to a new v3 address, and we have also changed the setup to use HTTPS now, which will trigger a warning in your browser. Address and info here:
... all done and services back up.
Sorry, everyone! We just recovered from an unexpected downtime. Both Mastodon and XMPP are back now.
Our main machine went down last night, for as of yet unknown reasons. The machine was unresponsive and reboots did not work. We were able to have a remote rescue console attached and have fixed the bootloader now. It does not look like we lost anything. We're investigating the issue now.
