Title: Scheduled Maintenance
Post by ProgMaster on 12th Jun, 2017 at 3:35am
All,

As briefly mentioned on the news page, I have been carrying out essential maintenance, back-ups and upgrades over this weekend. At the time of writing, this will continue through to Monday but I'll keep any downtime to the music being played to a minimum.

Some of this work includes an upgrade to the latest version of the Spacial Media Audio software.  [smiley=smiley.gif]

Cheers.

Darran

Thanks, Darran, for your time in keeping this site up with such great music. This is (and has been for 8 years!) by far my favorite music site in the universe.

Ok folks, I have two new CD drives arriving shortly, once installed I'm going to be in a position to upgrade SAM's software version. Once done, I'm going to revise the upgrade plan for the forum - to the very latest release which has a lot of new functionality and features. [smiley=smiley.gif]

A couple of cases and a power supply to order folks and all of the hardware will be in situ.

I'm currently performing further maintenance and updates. I'll post once this next stage has finished.

The music is being played, however, the website isn't talking to SAM. As such, the currently playing track, history and song information isn't being displayed on the website. I'm unsure as to how long the additional work is going to take to rectify this issue. I'm off to bed, Merry Christmas. [smiley=smiley.gif]

The MySQL server version wasn't playing well with SAM at all. I'm currently setting up a different version. The music will return as soon as possible.

Happy Holidays all !!!!

Music playing OK here on Boxing Day with Caravan "Behind You" followed by Esagono "Dedalo E Icaro". No song info on the website though.

Thanks, Mick. Everything is now up-and-running, although I am still making some tweaks and fine-tuning with more work to do ...

A RAID check is currently running on the new set-up. This should hopefully be the last job that involves any downtime to the music being played.

This job has finished and the music is broadcasting as usual. I'll post more information as to what's taken place and what's yet to come when I have a moment as I'm off to bed.

Happy Boxing Day folks ! [smiley=smiley.gif]

Thanks, Darran, for the work that you do on this marvelous internet audio oasis.

Many thanks, David. I'm slowly getting there, my friend ... [smiley=smashthepc.gif]

There's still a fair amount of configuration and tweaking to be done yet but it's already running a lot better.

Hey Darran, thanks for the shout-outs (just now and yesterday). I got a good chuckle out of your comment today about not passing on personal data entered when signing up with the site -- except possibly to Steve Howe? I'd be happy to have you pass my info to him!   [smiley=laugh.gif]

Happy Holidays, and here's to more great music in 2018!

Glad that you caught it, David. I just a thought that it might be a casual hobby of his ...  ;)

All of the hardware upgrades have finished with everything working as expected.

I'm still busy making configurings and general tweaking to the software. As always, I'll keep any interruptions to the music being played to a minimum.
