Hey !Hubzilla Support Forum

When I upload an jpg image from my mobile Firefox on Android, it gets corrupted and uploaded as an attachment. Posting an image from Firefox on my laptop still works.

It used to work with the same version of Firefox but I might have updated Hubzilla and PHP in the meantime. The Hubzilla log as well as nginx and php-fpm logs didn't show any sign of an error.

I tried deleting the browser cache on Android in case an old version of the JavaScript files was still cached.
Works for me lineage-os and fennec f-droid 62.0.2
I'm still on 58.0.2. Does Hubzilla use cutting edge JS features that always require the latest browser?
I'm experiencing the same behaviour from Fennec 62.0.2.

I think I would agree on a lot with this guy. I have been promoting classroom use of Jupyter notebook for some time now and had some successful use-cases.

Not that I expect to get one but I just applied for a Atlas probe with #RIPE. It's worth a try, right. Sadly their out of stock anyway.
I just migrated my #ZFS mirror from small spinning disks to larger SSDs and I'm once more impressed with how easy this was. Basically I just added the new drives to the mirror, waited for the data to be copied over then removed the old ones. The ZFS pool then grew magically to the size of its new underlying partition.

Now, I can go back and concentrate on this migration of the Hubzilla database from MariaDB to Postgres. I'm still trying to tackle these NULL-dates which actually aren't NULL.
Ah yeah, and then there is this migration to PHP 7 I should look into before the next #Hubzilla upgrade.
Yay, I'm back online from the new location! What was up in Hubzilla-Space over the weekend?
@Mike Macgirvin Great news! Right now I'm a bit pressed for time so I won't look into hosting one of them myself for now.

@Mario Vavti Solved. 3.4.2 up and running.
3.6.1 it is, :three: . :six: . :one:

Ah, oh. Yes, I'm on 3.6.1 - I think I had Slackware 14.2 in mind and hence wrote 4.2... ;-)
Hey all

From tomorrow on I'll be offline - along with my hub - for some time. We move out of the data center in the Swiss Alps to a new place. I have to re-number and set everything up before I'm back online. This might take some time...

See you on the other side.
One of the nice features of Hubzilla is that I still have my channel export to import on another hub, if all else fails. Nomadic Identity ftw :D

What's a good DC/provider for hosting, that you can recommend?
Well, I moved my server to the racks at work, so I wouldn't know. Our association merged with the Zurich based CommunityRack. This is most likely where I'll move next...
Since I need Postgres for a couple of other services I would like to migrate Hubzilla to Postgres, too. Has anyone ever tried something like this? I think something like this might work:

  • Create a DB dump
  • convert the DB dump using mysql2pgsql
  • creating a new DB from the dump
  • changing the config in Hubzilla

What obvious caveats am I missing?

@Hubzilla Support Forum+
@Roelof Pieter I'm still stuck, that's why I didn't post any update. I converted all the dates in my db to something Postgres would accept as a valid date. Still pgloader still stumbles on some dates which are apparently NULL - but in MariaDB database they don't seem to be NULL. What did you try?
Well, in the end I used the export/import function if Hubzilla. But although my identity and my posts got "migrated", not everything did. See my post in this thread earlier...
For now I give up. I compared the two database schemes and realized that there isn't even a single rule what to convert which data type to. Some int(10)-Fields are "integer" fields in Postgres, others are "binint".

I think the best way forward is to create the database using the schema in /install and then write a script which copies data over. Since I'm not proficient in PHP I can't use the existing script but would have to start from scratch. Right now I don't have the spare time to do this. I'll stick with MariaDB for now.

The last stage on our journey: Dalwhinnie, waiting for the only train that would still accept bicycle bookings today... #cyclingscotland

Today we took the rough off road alternative of the cycle route.. I mean what could go wrong, we're on a heavy duty touring bicycle built for these conditions - and a folding bike...

Then we had a cup of tea and a coffee in a CTC approved coffee shop.

Due to popular demand I'll post some more pictures from our Scotland trip. Right now it stopped raining and we're back in high speed mobile internet land.

Entering the Isle of Harris:

Drying clothes in the Rhenigidale Youth Hostel which we had all to ourselves:

There was also more rain at the Youth Hostel:

Back on on "mainland" Scotland we finally spotted that bright ball of fire called the sun:

On the way to Inverness we came across a cemetery in the middle of nowhere in the woods. During the night this would make a great horror movie filming spot:

was it cold. I see you have fire in the fire place. Here today less hot 29 instead of 33 or 34
We mostly had temperature s between 10 and 20. Whenever I checked the weather back at home the rain didn't seem that bad after all... ;-)
First day of cycling on the outer Hebrides. The hostel were we camp even has a bike shed! #cyclingscotland


Also, they were very clever, they used an old stone building as bike shed so that they didn't have to decide what colour to paint it... ;-)
Another rainy day on route 78. The picture was taken before the rain set in... :/ #cyclingscotland

Last night we stayed in a random hotel because we were to wet to camp. Turns out the hotel is owned by an 80 year old vegan from Manchester. That's why the cooked breakfast was vegan. Nevertheless, the cereals were served with milk.  The fact that the place was vegan (or partly vegan) wasn't mentioned anywhere on the website. Even though the place was slighly weird and felt from another time in the past, it was great. They even allowed us to squeeze the bicycles in the boiler room.

Today the weather was better than expected. Now we are finally camping.



New #pepperandcarrot episode!

@Mario Vavti  - only items posted by your PeerTube connection after the connection is added will appear in our stream, is that correct?
In other words, add the connection and wait for the next item to be posted on PeerTube, this will be the first item that will appear in your stream. :-)
No pictures today. The rain set in when we started cycling... #cyclingscotland #scottishsummer
Scotland without rain is not scotland. If you want to a chance to have rain go in West in East part you have less chance
They had a dry period of 2 months until we arrived... ;)
Cycling the Union Canal from Edinburgh to Glasgow. #cyclingscotland

@Andrew Conway Hmm.. guess you're right. I just got confused by a sign saying "union canal".
 via ActivityPub
@navigium I think it starts off as the union canal nearer Edinburgh but I've not cycled that far east.
@Andrew Conway ah so that's what confused me.
