  Where did my License Keys Credit Go?
Posted by: lonnie - 10-15-2019, 10:45 PM - Forum: General News - Replies (1)

Unfortunately my last functional database backup was from Feb 2019.  This means tha ALL licenses issued after that time until now are gone, as are your credits and charges.

To be fair about this, I will be going through the PayPal records and will add in your credits.  I have no way to add the charges for issued licenses so you will have a credit if you ever need to lookup one up and it is missing.  Just buy a new one using your credit.

Handy TIP - The MyWisp program, nearly ready for release, will allow you to record the site Request Keys and Licenses.  If you load MyWisp and do this then you will be keeping your own Archive and will have a credit for future use.

MyWisp keeps track of the site info and can even place them on a map.  It can get stats and logs, do updates and makes it easy to do ssh or browser logins.

It uses RSA 2048 for all password and confidential fields, so it is very secure.  I use it for my all of my Banking and use the random password generator for a strong, unique password for every site.  No more using one password for everything.  The same with all my software licenses and registrations.

MyWisp will run for 90 days and then will need a license, which will be $20.  You might even consider using some of your restored credit to buy a license or two for MyWisp.

For info:  http://gigabit-gecko.com    When I do release it, there will be an announcement on this Forums and the files site will have the actual download.

  Things are coming back live

We had 3 servers with Hostflyte, in different cities.  Looking to save time and storage I set things up to do backups between the machines.  The rationale was that if all machines in 3 cities went down, the world was having more issues than our server problems.  Was I ever wrong.  Two weeks ago all of the servers went dead and what followed was a game of delay delay.  Finally I just went ahead and ordered a business internet feed and setup a nice HP I7 quad core server with 16 GB ram and 256 GB SSD disk.

Originally it was to be have been a VmWare image since I have used it for many years to do StarOS development on a windows host.  It is great, BUT, by the time Windows had wanted to do an update and reboot for the third time in a week I could see trouble.  So a dedicated machine, in house is now the way of the future.  No more far-off cloud crap.  I want something I can touch.

So, the dedicated box was configured and the routing was setup so I could use my static and my dynamic IP. 

One of the big tasks was the license server since it was built with old 32 bit libraries.  By the time I had upgraded everything to latest and greatest, a week had gone by, but it is now better than ever.

I was in the process of upgrading the old MyBB Forums and the upgrade decided to KILL the MySQL server.  How can that be?  I removed and re-installed MySQL.  PostgreSQL has always been a solid and fast database server.  This new Flux Forums is one of the few Forums that support PostgreSQL.  We'll see when it gets some users and posts, but I have faith.  My operation is tiny compared to what some people are doing with it.  ** Update  I had 3 pages of garbage spammers registered in less than a day, so I went back to MyBB and will not be trying to import or rebuild.  It is beginning fresh, which is OK, because most of the previous Forums was historical and not very relevant today.  **  Sorry to say but you will have to register to be able to post.

Oh, and I found out that MyBB does support Postgres, but after the shock of that many spammers knocking on the door, I want MyBB to use a different database server.  MyBB has ZERO spam registrations in over 24 hours.  What a difference so anti-spam check makes.

In that vein, I am also going to redo the StarOS website and ditch the WordPress core as it used MySQL.  It was nice with the firewall they provided but in reality all they did was use Linux facilities.
