Unfortunately due to a rare software #bug in #Friendica many photos/pictures where lost at friendica.utzer.de, developers did try to troubleshoot this, but the result was not conclusive. It is not sure why the photos were lost, but it seems that the photos are lost and the related entry in the database is still existing.

I apologize for this problem. As the photos were lost over a course of a few days, while moving the data from one supported storage type to another (within Friendica), I decided I will not roll back the system, as this would have meant to loose all data from the time the fault was discovered to the rollback time.

Please feel free to reupload or reshare all the pictures and add new uploads!

I need to reboot the server again, some little setup change, but to test it I need to reboot.

Reboot will take place in exactly 60 minutes, friendica.utzer.de will be up again after 2 minutes.

To the users of friendica.utzer.de

I did silence many remote pr0n profiles, so their posts will not show up on the community page anymore, but the profiles are not blocked and interaction with them is still possible.

If you find any annoying stuff like pr0n or so please let me know. I will act as required.

I will later switch friendica.utzer.de to the release candidate of #Friendica

This switch will cause a downtime due to database updates and other things, I will do this during the evening (central European time).

I will start the switch in 10 minutes. I am not sure how long the downtime will take. If you want to follow the process I will update from @utzer here.
20:10 UTC will be the start.
it seems the updates are finished. I will check now.
"confirmed" to be finished 20:45 UTC.
Tomorrow will be a reboot, but that will take less than 5 minutes.


Due to the last update (today) it seems that friendica.utzer.de is islanded, it seems that no posts are being received or sent anymore.

Not sure if this internal message will work. Please excuse this problem, I am trying to fix it, but it seems that #Friendica has some problem with PHP8 which was part of the update.

I will update here.

Not that any of the users of the servers will be able to read this, but just to let others know, there is a problem at #Hetzner #Helsinki and therefor the servers of friendica.utzer.de and social.yl.ms are offline.

The problem should resolve as soon as the problem here and the other switch related problems are resolved.
