  • On a slightly different note, I've been checking my logs lately and in the past several weeks I've had to keep restarting slashd as it has been hanging during (usually the last line in slashd.log is something like "Updating 03/04/22/1551213". Anyone else have this happen? It happens at least once a day now, I have had to schedule a cron job to restart slashd every hour. Slash 2.2.6

    I've been running the same code for about a year, the only thing I did recently was upgrade the kernel (RedHat):
    • What version of slash? We're not seeing that, but we're using the most recient T tag (I think it's the most recient anyway - T2_3_0_85).

      • slash 2.2.6 ... I haven't touched the code in about a year so that's why it's a bit mysterious. It's probably a sign I should start the move to the T tags.
        • I know vlad's not recommending it, they had all *sorts* of problems doing it.

          But there are quite a few people who didn't have such problems that vlad and his crew did.

          I did my 4 or 5 sites, in roughly a week, tinkering with it in the evenings. Most of my time was spent meshing changes that I'd done to both the slash src and my plugins. Templates were a joy to do, but for each site it only took about a half hour to diff the template changes and reimplement them into the newly upgraded sites.

            Thanks for your perspective and good to hear it went well for you. Approx. 1 week for you and Vlad's approx. 1 week really isn't too bad. I think it took me several months to initially get Slash running smoothly. This was version 1.0.4 and most major problems have been worked out now it seems.

            The transitions from 1.0x to 2.0 and also from 2.0 to 2.2 went well, thanks to the Slash crew's upgrade scripts. I definitely want to move up to the latest, it is just a question of when to pull the trigger and start the process of moving to the latest version. I've got the dev box ready, so it should be fairly soon. Good to know others have already been through a similar scenario.
