30 November 2018

  • extensions/UespCustomCode/SiteCustomCode.php and SiteCustomCode_body.php: Added argument support to {{CORENAME}}, {{LABELNAME}}, and {{SORTABLECORENAME}}. Robin Hood  (talk) 06:48, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
    • Fixed a problem in onGetDefaultSortkey() that was breaking category pages and partially breaking image uploads. Some pages may need hard-refreshes or purges as a result of the back-and-forth. Robin Hood  (talk) 22:19, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

27 November 2018

  • Fixed https support on blog.uesp.net (made primary site the HTTPS version). -- Daveh (talk) 18:33, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Removed SSLv2 and SSLv3 support from content1/2/3 and files1. -- Daveh (talk) 18:33, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

24 November 2018

  • includes/MediaWiki.php (content3 only): Implemented most of these changes to eliminate some HTTP 301 errors with cron jobs in debug log file and perhaps also help with stuck jobs. Robin Hood  (talk) 05:53, 24 November 2018 (UTC)

23 November 2018

  • includes/jobqueue/JobQueueDB.php (content3 only): Implemented this change to see if number of jobs getting stuck in job queue will be reduced. Robin Hood  (talk) 22:05, 23 November 2018‎ (UTC)

10 November 2018

  • extensions/UespCustomCode/SiteCustomCode.php and SiteCustomCode_body.php: Commented out old implementation of DEFAULTSORT override and updated it to MW 1.19+ version. This restores {{SORTABLECORENAME}} as the default sortkey, as it was prior to the update to MW 1.19 back in January 2013. Also running updateCollations.php as recommended here. Robin Hood  (talk) 05:26, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

2 November 2018

  • Removed check from config/Permissions.php that prevented non-bots from accessing the API edits. This permits the mobile skin to perform edits. -- Daveh (talk) 17:44, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

26 October 2018

17 October 2018

  • Added the https://app.uesp.net domain which serves a modified MobileFrontEnd display for use with the UESP app. Currently this is being soley served by content3 but will eventually be moved to squid1/content1/content2. -- Daveh (talk) 17:08, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Fixed the prefix search on the mobile skin (namespaces needed to be manually specified). -- Daveh (talk) 17:08, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

16 October 2018

15 October 2018

  • Changed all explicit CSS and JS head entries into resource loader modules. -- Daveh (talk) 19:39, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Explicitly made the server use "https" to fix an issue with Squid not caching the https verison of pages (due to default of http when ``$wgServer`` is not using a prefix). -- Daveh (talk) 20:46, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

14 October 2018

  • config/CommonSettings.php: Set default thumbnail size to 200px ($wgDefaultUserOptions['thumbsize'] = 3; // thumb size 200). Robin Hood  (talk) 22:44, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

11 October 2018

  • Cleared all pages in the cache that had a TCP_NEGATIVE_HIT/500 in the logs (15k different pages, probably much less 'real' pages with the issue currently). -- Daveh (talk) 23:41, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Set negative_ttl to 0 on squid1 9was previously 1 second). -- Daveh (talk) 23:41, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Added check for a null $title on line 151 of MetaTemplate.php which was causing 500 errors when loading articles that have invalid titles. Note that this may have been the/a root cause of the random error page issue happening lately. -- Daveh (talk) 23:57, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

8 October 2018

  • extensions/MetaTemplate/MetaTemplate_body.php: Added $frame->setVolatile(); to efMetaTemplateImplementLoad() and efMetaTemplateImplementTemplateName() on content3 only. Holding off on making same changes to live servers, as it seems they may no longer be needed. (Explanation: Templates like {{FMI}} or {{Book Footer}}, which often have no parameters in the template call, are supposed to be cached and thus return the same result throughout an entire page, even though they shouldn't. When I started testing, I discovered that this template caching no longer seems to be happening on any server, apparently eliminating the need to use setVolatile(). It's unclear why this is no longer happening, though.) Robin Hood  (talk) 01:14, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

2 October 2018

  • extensions/UespCustomCode/SiteSpecialSearch.php: Tweaked layout per Dillon's suggestions. Removed all references to redirects, which were removed back in 1.23. Robin Hood  (talk) 22:36, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

1 October 2018

  • extensions/UespCustomCode/SiteSpecialSearch.php: Added Blades namespace to search. Robin Hood  (talk) 04:10, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

30 September 2018

  • Re-did changes from 15 and 17 September 2018. Robin Hood  (talk) 03:58, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

28 September 2018

  • extensions/UespCustomCode/SiteCustomCode.php: Commented out $aSpecialPages[' Special Page '] lines for both Search and Preferences. Robin Hood  (talk) 21:49, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

17 September 2018

  • extensions/UespCustomCode/files/search-icon.png: Replaced with version from Dillonn241 which has better edge smoothing with the transparency. Robin Hood  (talk) 16:09, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

15 September 2018

  • config/CommonSettings.php: Set $wgLogo = "//images.uesp.net/4/40/NewUESPLogo1.png"; so transparency works. This was done previously after this discussion, but was converted back to a jpg at some point, perhaps inadvertently, as I can't find any further discussion about it. Robin Hood  (talk) 00:34, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

4 August 2018

  • config/CommonSettings.php: Set $wgMaxImageArea = 6e7;, paralleling Wikia to allow larger images to be handled correctly. Robin Hood  (talk) 18:57, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

30 July 2018

  • config/Extensions.php: Set $wgEnableTranscode = false and deleted related job queue entries, since it was clogging up the job queue with jobs that couldn't run. (Needs FFMPEG, I believe.) Robin Hood  (talk) 06:39, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

29 July 2018

  • config/CommonSettings.php: Update ImageMagick conversion for SVG files to support transparency per this change. (Note: the added $wgSVGConverters['ImageMagick'] = ... line can be removed whenever we upgrade to a version that has the fix built-in.) Robin Hood  (talk) 05:04, 29 July 2018 (UTC)

20 June 2018

  • Updated interwiki table so "en" actually points to "en" instead of "www". ;)
  • Also set iw_local for all three interwikis, so typing "pt:Skyrim:Skyrim" in the sidebar now brings you to PT. Robin Hood  (talk) 07:17, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

18 June 2018

  • Reduced query cache size on db1/db2 to 500MB to test potential fix to random database lockups (may be due to query cache purging with large caches). See here and here. -- Daveh (talk) 13:01, 18 June 2018 (UTC)

11 June 2018

  • Gave bots editprotected permission so HnB can add full protection to pages. Robin Hood  (talk) 22:20, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Added Blades/BL namespace. Robin Hood  (talk) 06:04, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

4 June 2018

  • extensions/MobileFrontend/less/common/common.less, hacks.less: Commented out several lines that were causing formatting issues on Mobile (tagged each with RH70). Robin Hood  (talk) 23:47, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

25 May 2018

  • UespCustomCode/SiteSpecialSearch.php: Backed out search term substitution of "eso" with "(eso OR Online)" from 10 April 2014 by removing entire custom showResults() function. It was now more of a nuisance than a benefit. Robin Hood  (talk) 04:01, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

18 May 2018

  • extensions/MobileFrontend/less/modules/toggle.less: Commented out position:relative; which was causing sections to disappear entirely on mobile. Robin Hood  (talk) 19:02, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

12 Apr 2018

25 Mar 2018

  • Changed wikis to use db1 as primary read database to prevent slave replication lag on db2 from causing issues. Will keep it like this will I diagnose and test the solution to reduce the replication lag. -- Daveh (talk) 01:36, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

12 Mar 2018

  • Updated all SSL certificates to a new multi-domain wildcard. This, in theory, should fix the issue with the *.m.uesp.net domains had with the prior SSL setup. -- Daveh (talk) 23:45, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

6 Mar 2018

  • Restarted Memcached on content1. -- Daveh (talk) 13:19, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

3 Mar 2018

  • Permissions.php: Reinstate confirmed group changes from 13 July 2017. Robin Hood  (talk) 01:48, 3 March 2018 (UTC)

16 Feb 2018

  • Temporarily set $wgMasterWaitTimeout = 6000; and changed the main read database to db1 on content1/2/3 due to high slave lag on db2 caused by a full disk. -- Daveh (talk) 16:05, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

26 Jan 2018

  • Fixed the mobile sites pt.m, it.m, and www.m to point to content2 instead of squid1 to fix serving of https pages. Squid doesn't handle multiple https certificates. -- Daveh (talk) 22:38, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

25 Jan 2018

  • Fixed directory permissions of a few thumbnail folders on files1. They should have the apache:uespadmin ownership. -- Daveh (talk) 15:26, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Note on nobody:nobody file permission issue for NFS shares. Make sure the client hostname is first on the line in /etc/hosts.conf.
  • Fix hosts.conf
  • nfsidmap -c
  • service rpcidmapd restart
  • umount /mnt/uesp/wikiimages
  • mount /mnt/uesp/wikiimages
-- Daveh (talk) 15:26, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
