Antville Project


Tonight, 2003-03-12, Antville (the software) here at Antville (the website) will be updated (hopefully :) Thus, and the weblogs hosted here most likely won't be accessible for the time between 1800 and 1900 CET. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your understanding.

Update: I'd say it's looking good. Is still everything working, though?

first of all: sorry for the outage of between 0:15 and 1:00. i had to do alot of maintenance tonight, and it wasn't possible without switching antville off. here's what i did:

  • switched to apache 1.3.26 (compiled from sources), restructured apache-config. the home-directory of apache has changed too (and more important: the config is not anymore where it used to be on suse-systems)
  • compiled and installed mod_jk 1.2 from sources (for some hidden reasons apache was pretty unwilling to start with the precompiled binary ...)
  • cleaned and optimized accesslog-table in database
  • switched to helma-snapshot compiled on 20021120

and btw.: anybody knows why the f*** j2sdk1.4.1 needs a hidden directory /etc/.java/? obviously it leads to timeouts in image-upload if this directory is not existing (thanks kris for your report, but you deleted your story before i was able to comment ;-)

so now for the more interesting things: due to the switch to a new helma-version the following problems are solved:

  1. there are no problems anymore with spaces encoded as '+' in urls.
  2. since hns changed the gif-encoder used in helma (big thanks!) the problems with uploading gifs (some of them would throw a lengthy error) are gone too.

if any of the above problems still occur please report them here.
