DhO Hacked and Upgrade

General

ATTENTION!: It appears that our server has been hacked through this version of Liferay, meaning it is no longer secure, and so expect instability as we deal with this and attempt to upgrade to Liferay 7, which we failed to be able to do last year the last time the team attempted it, but we have no choice at this point, so bear with us as we try again. Save any long posts in a text file before posting them. You can follow me on Twitter at @danielmingram for updates if the site is down. Apologies for any complexity this causes. We will work as fast as we can. We have backups of the database, so hopefully nothing will be lost. Thanks to all helping with this complex process.

Dho Server Locked but is back up now, obviously

Threads [ Previous | Next ]
Dear All,

The DhO server locked up but has been reset. Simon is looking into why and what we can do to make it more stable. Sorry for the downtime.

In the meantime, feel free to enjoy useful, kind, thoughtful, productive discussions of your favorite dharma topics.

We, the moderators, are talking among ourselves to try to figure out the best way to keep this place inviting, skillful, productive, and help the signal-to-noise ratio, as well as to encourage basic decorum and integrity here. While the DhO has generally been relatively lightly moderated, recent abuses of that privilege are shifting towards a bit more control of what happens here to help the DhO encourage people to feel welcome to explore the amazing ways we can explore our minds and the friendly support we can lend each other in that process.

More will follow shortly.
