  1. PeterUK added a post in a topic: Which SSH Client you use?   

    Native on Linux but when on Windows I use MobaXterm.
  2. PeterUK added a post in a topic: Page doesn't work   

    Maybe you've had some sort of DNS failure as I can see a working forum on that URL.
     
    What kind of error are you seeing?
  3. PeterUK added a post in a topic: Best performance drive setup for IPS: 1 SSD or 2 SSDs in RAID 0?   

     
    Agree, can't recommend RAID0 for production unless you are 100% happy with losing that data at any moment.

    It's faster than comparitively it used to be, it's not faster than raw HTTP, but it isn't far off (excluding negotiating the initial connection).  If you're talking about people using SPDY rather than just plain HTTPS, then that's a different matter as well.
     
    That being said, I am not advocating against using HTTPS all the time, I think that would be fine.
  5. PeterUK added a post in a topic: Diagnostic Help   

    You need to answer a few more questions for the best help here.
     
    What's your technology stack (ie. Apache, or nginx + php-fpm, for example)?  2GB RAM also seems awfully low for an 8 core Xeon, however that's not to say it should have any problems running a decent sized IPB installation.
     
    How large is your board, how many posts, topics and concurrent users in general?
  6. PeterUK added a comment on a blog entry: Get Ready For IPS 4.0!   

    It heavily depends on the size of your actual posts as well.  Larger ones obviously take longer to convert.  We have around 5 million and a beefy server and the normal script for us would have been more than 48 hours of solid run time (I stopped running it after about 24 hours straight).

    If you have a large board it may be worth checking out my converter for doing this.  I should note that it's completely unofficial but has positive reviews from those who have tried it and can leverage parallel processing on your linux server to speed things up.

    Yes in your config you should set that to "utf8", although I believe it's supposed to default to that anyway.  There should definitely be an error in your log due to the fact that IPB is reporting an error.  You should try to load the website, then check cache/sql_error_latest.cgi or whatever it's called.

    As xtech says, please check your SQL errors and let us know what the problem query is. May be able to work out what happened from that.
  10. PeterUK added a post in a topic: Easy and elegant way to convert your database to UTF8   

    It now uses a different library to do the actual conversion of characters, it's faster, and significantly more accurate (from my experience).  It also will not double encode existing UTF-8.

    If you have command line access, which it seems you do, and are running Linux, why don't you give mine a try ?
  12. PeterUK added a post in a topic: Unofficial Multi-Threaded UTF-8 Converter   

    Updated the script to use a superior library amongst other things.
  13. PeterUK added a post in a topic: Unofficial Multi-Threaded UTF-8 Converter   

    Ah yes, I didn't realise this had been released publicly, I tested it some time ago before it was released.  You should indeed use that one if you don't want multi-threading.
  14. PeterUK added a post in a topic: Unofficial Multi-Threaded UTF-8 Converter   

    Sorry for the slow response, you are correct, Linux is a requirement for this script.  It would be possible to make it run single threaded but ultimately you may as well just run bfarber's script, I am about to issue a patched version of this though which uses a superior third party library for UTF-8 encoding.
  15. PeterUK added a post in a topic: the utf8 problem   

    For the record, we fixed this problem, it was related to this bug:
    http://community.invisionpower.com/resources/bugs.html/_/ip-board/remove-chr0xca-from-input-r43247
     
    We also fixed the issue with mixed character sets causing potential conversion issues.
