workers Anonymous 01/20/2019 (Sun) 23:17:00 No. 526 [Reply]
When starting lynxchan with penumbra, it always says one worker booted then the other. Using other front ends it just says worker 2 booted when starting it up. Is it supposed to say worker 1 then worker 2 booted? THanks.
Already replied that on the other thread.

So sometimes when I start lynxchan it says worker 2 started. Sometimes it says worker 1 started, then worker 2 started on the next terminal line. Does this mean my fe is fucked up? Does it have to say both worker 1 then worker 2 started in order to know its working right?
That's fine, they don't have a set order.

ssl Anonymous 01/21/2019 (Mon) 08:04:43 No. 530 [Reply]
lynx installed on a digital ocean ubuntu 18.10 minimal. Can anyone pls tell me how the fuck to get ssl installed now? I can easily do letsencrypt on an apache or nginx- i never did ssl on a bare install of ubuntu. Pls let me know.

I'm a noob in web dev.
Only know some shallow knowledge of Web Hosting/domain, HTML and CSS from editing blogspot template. And I run a website for a year only running a landing page.

I stumble on a github page about imageboard software, and it appears that Lynx are the most popular one. So that's why I'm here.

Does anybody have any source of manual (book or video) that contain knowledge from the very basic about how to apply LynxChan, so I can make my own Imageboard website?

Already try to google it but nothing quite comprehensive.

Another question,
Can it run on imageboard App on android like "Overchan,"
I try to open this web using the app but it appears only like a web browser, not like 4chan or 8chan. Thanks.

Hit me up on email: kamkazert@gmail.com
>Basic 101

First read both the main readme and src/be/readme. Then megamilk from mewch made this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLWnMcg_L8U

>Also how to test it on my own computer as a server?, i saw some tutorial on the url bar it says "localhost"

This is basic networking. A server is just another computer. If this computer is on a virtual machine or is your own computer, it doesn't matter. When you see "localhost" it just means the person is connecting from the same computer running the software.

Where is the date modified? Anonymous 10/25/2018 (Thu) 14:55:11 No. 513 [Reply]
Where is the date modified?
Modified the js file. But it doesn't work.
You mean the time since it was posted? I didn't add it to this front-end, only to penumbra and I don't know what exactly you did.
>>514
Modify time format
Ex: 2018-10-20 (Do not want this 14:55:11)
>>515
I see. You want to remove the time and leave just the date?
Yes.What should I do?
>>517
You would have to either handle it with js after loading or make an addon. That is no configurable.

blow jobs thanks to lynxchan! Anonymous 10/22/2018 (Mon) 03:46:58 No. 512 [Reply]
i like how lynxchan is meant to save people shitloads of money! with certbot and letsencrypt ssl , this money saving concept should be extended to ssl though!!! built in ssl is no longer necessary with free letsencrypt options. also, it costs money tonget the two required cert files. so im running lynxchan on ubuntu, from here to use letsencrypt i install nginx, then delete apache, then set up the sal cert with letsencrypt, right? As a feature request, maybe have it more user friendly tonuse letsencrypt? thanks !! i spend my money on coke and whores so saving money on ssl certs should be at least 3 more blow jobs from whores per week.

Ignore it. It won't affect anyone in practice and bcrypt has been removed from 2.1 which will be release in a month or so.

Hey, admin. Do you do anything to secure mongo db in your setup file? Apparently mongo db is crazy not secure. This article explains why.
https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/01/11/mongodb_ransomware_followup/
Mongo is not secure if you make not to be. I don't know about other install methods, but the default on their RHEL repository is secured, it won't allow external connections.

The problem is that most people in IT are completely retarded and left their dbs unsecured.
>>505 yeah, like me. Im a retard. Just thought i would share with ppl, it sucks for new ppl but everyone had to start something new at one point. And if there are security risks that a new person could fall to, well, there should be some instruction in the readme in how to fix the security hole. Not everyone who runs lynxchan is a fucking car mechanic grease monkey or a good server admin. There are different levels of skill in anything. Having an elitist attitude and just saying ppl are retarded, then being too fucking lazy to address real security issues that could effect new people, that is retarded too. So fuck your shit attitude. If you make a product, do it right instead of being a cock sucker elitist in order to be lazy and make excuses for shitty work. Just kidding lol
>>506
And that's why I recommend people using CentOS, so the default install is secured.
>>506 Noted :)
