CSS added to board settings doesn't apply to the catalog? Why?
1 post omitted.
what's wrong with how it is now?
there catalogCell etc
You really should.
great, now i have to redo my css, again
Ok, I actually broke that recently. It was supposed to apply, but was broken. I fixed on all active branches this week or so.
oh wait you mean settings > CSS

Restoring Database Lynxchan. Anonymous 06/04/2019 (Tue) 01:21:39 No. 827 [Reply]
I dumped the database with the command "mongodump"on one instance of lynxchan on one server. Then I transfered over the resulting folder "dump" onto another server in which I set up a working instance of Lynxchan. Then I attempted to restore the dump folder by using the following command.
"mongorestore --drop --batchSize=10 -d lynxchan Lynxchan/dump/lynxchan"
this spits out this large pile of errors:
At first I thought it was a conflict with the already existing database on "lynxchan" but trying another database name doesn't fix it and results in the same error.

What do?
2 posts omitted.
How did you dump it originally? Show me the whole command.
Also try removing the --drop argument, I am not familiar with it. I know that batchsize might be due to low ram, so you can leave that. I don't use it, but I don't know how much ram you have.
I dumped the database with just "mongodump". It gave me a folder "dump" with a sub folder "lynxchan". Without the batch size argument, it fails due to low ram.
Do you know if you accidentaly dumped it twice or something?
Also, did you dumped SPECIFICALLY the lynxchan database?
I think this was the problem, local was excluded. Thanks.

For restoring a mongodb backup what would the database name be?
Anything you want. You can configure the database used on src/be/settings/db.json so you can restore it wherever you want.
I'll try that, thanks.

1: something else is using por 8080. maybe a webserver, maybe another lynxchan instance?

2: your front-end is on the wrong version. check the branch of the front-end and the branch of the engine you are using.

I ran the install and root install and everything but lynxchan still isn't installed as a service. I have the user node too.
what init system you used, what kind of service you asked for root-setup to install and why do you think there isn't a service installed? also, did the root-setup script said anything?
delete this, i was autistic and didn't read and just put y where i was supposed to specify something.

can you install lynxchan without root access?
2 posts omitted.
cron does not need root
cron jobs !== services
both can do the same thing.
you could change your install script to systemctl --user instead of root
No they can't.

Alright Stephen Lynx, this has proven to be a royal pain in the ass. I will pay you 25 dollars to go into my servers and install this shit for me. I don't give a fuck if it's bad security.
you probably forgot to install the mongdb then
No I installed it.
Is mongo running?
im not him but i could do it for you $

If I transfer the Lynxchan folder to another server, install all the dependencies and then run the install script, will it serve the same content correctly?
1 post omitted.
If the database is in place, then yes, it should serve the same content.
There are a few things that affect EXACTLY what is served:

1: the database
2: global settings
3: front-end
4: language pack
5: engine version
6: addons

If all these things are the same, the content should be the same.
What would be the name of the database if I was doing a mongodump to change it over to a new machine?
default should be lynxchan if you didn't change settings/db.json
So I can just do mongodump and the resulting folder is the entire database?

(You)s aren't showing up on my board for whatever reason. How would I fix this?
There isn't (You)s on penumbra and on none other front-end that I know of.
it's for the better

For whatever reason, uploading an mp3 works perfectly fine on firefox, but completely fails with a "A file had a format that is not allowed by the server."
When i do it on chrome/chromium
Chrome uses a different mime for mp3 and the site must add this mime on the global settings.
>chrome can't meme
Nevermind, I figured it out.
