Yep, it's good just making pages for teams and drivers that were officially accepted

Anyone have any ideas how to correct this mess: http://formularejects.com/tmpedia/Castrer%C3%A1_Brothers

I am trying to condense it all into one large page instead of having five separate pages, but there isn't enough biographical information to fill in these ugly gaps. No matter what I do, I can't just add empty white space. Thanks

It might honestly be better just to make 5 different pages

Each driver should have his/her own page, even if it's merely a stub. You could always add a Castrerá (disambiguation) page with links to all five drivers if you wished, with a reference to the disambiguation page at the top of all driver pages.

I've started copying a bunch of old pages over from the ShoutWiki onto the FormulaRejects Wiki if they weren't already there, if that's not a problem for anyone. The pages as they were will probably need updating.

EDIT: Please delete that AJ Young page I made. Created that page without realizing there was already a page for him. :S

You can fix the AJ Young page by replacing it with #REDIRECT [[A.J. Young]].

Hello all,

The current host of TMPedia are being absolute dicks about resource usage and suspended the website.

Don't worry, I am transferring the EFR Wiki, along with everything else on that host, to my VPS, but given the old host ran Apache, and the new runs nginx, it will take me a little while to get all the relevant files changed to account for this and the wiki back online.

I imagine TMPedia should be back online at some point in the week, but can't say for certainty which day.

VVV.

At least transferring the wiki this time around will be trillions of times easier than when wikkii up and died. (which I'm kind of salty about still)

So that took rather longer than I had hoped.

But at least it's back again! Now moved to the same server as Grand Prix Rejects, a tasty VPS rather than your run-of-the-mill shared hosting crap.

I wouldn't go that far. TMPedia recently switched to a new server and I'm sure they've still got a few bugs to iron out.

Besides, I just checked and it's working again. So, with all due respect, please, chill the F out.

Yeah, we had a server reboot go awry and it appears to have corrupted the back-end server stuff somewhere. I am far from an expert in Ubuntu/nginx so it's been a real headscratcher to solve.

So the long term solution is (yet again) building a new server instance from scratch and porting all the websites over to it - making sure this time the server in question is optimised perfectly before going ahead. This time I'm not using nginx for the first time & not having to convert things from Apache to nginx formats, so I hope it's much smoother this time around. I can't give a precise timeframe. The site runs sort of borderline tolerably, the bad gateways seem to be quite irregular at this point.

Worked with Ubuntu before, but never with nginx. How different is the setup process, out of curiosity?

Server pools are used to appropriately direct traffic. Also, things like rewrite rules that you'd have in little .htaccess files on apache are centralised in the nginx config file...so our config file is quite big. The major issue I had was getting nginx's config for unix sockets to behave when running in tandem with php5-fpm (the controller for serving all the PHP pages, of which pretty much the entire site is written in).

Hate to bring this up again, especially as this is probably out of Veni's control, but it's down again.

Copypasted from page:
Sorry! This site is experiencing technical difficulties.

Try waiting a few minutes and reloading.

(Cannot contact the database server)

Edit: fine again.

Most likely it is the problem Voeckler mentioned earlier as the GPRejects site is also down.

If I'm correct there is something within the server not permitting users from creating new files and folders. If that is indeed the case, SELinux or APPArmor need to be disabled. Technically, only Voeckler can do this, if my assumption is correct......

A week ago or so I started working on a way to make grabbing driver points and results a lot easier (nested templates wooo). Instead of displaying finishes for a driver at the driver level (input finishes by driver), you would instead input them on the event level (each event would contain the results, rather than the other way around). If this works the way I think it will, it will be possible to print results for every driver for every series they participate in as long as it's formatted correctly (which isn't rocket science, even if I make it sound like rocket science... Ben figured it out with even less explanation than I gave here).

If there was a way I could just take SQL data from an external database that would be infinitely easier for me (...kinda part of my day job), but it's still doable with wikicode. I'm going to try and avoid making the nested templates too insane, but that's probably unavoidable.

Again, I hate to be that guy, and again, it's probably out of Veni's control, but the site is down again. Error 522.

So yeah, things ain't been great lately. I am migrating the wikis yet again. Now they will be separate from GPR once more.

NASCARLOVER427 - Not only is it within my control...I caused it! I am currently using a very resource-heavy process to copy everything across to the new server as we speak. So hopefully all the pain in the ass errors will be gone about 6 hours from now (or less, I hope, but my internet speeds are dire which doesn't help things move along in a timely fashion).

Also, Cynon, PM me on GPR and explain what you need. I'm not much of a wiki person (I can do basic formatting), and need some explaining of what you're trying to do and the access rights that need granted along with it.

So the switch is finished, and I verified file uploads are functioning. Keep posting if you notice anything wrong. I hope it's smooth sailing from here, for my sanity's sake...

It's been down all day today, but I'm not sure if that's due to the migration

It's due to me being cheap and trying to squeeze two wikis onto a $5/mo installation. It didn't have enough RAM to serve all the requests and just fell over and died. I am upgrading the server to a higher spec to deal with it (or at least I hope it'll deal with it).

Guys, I hate to say it, but I don't think I can afford to keep hosting this for the long term. I have spent a ton of time optimising every aspect of the website as I possibly can, but it still isn't enough. We needed more stability and so the costs are doubling. One wiki alone is quite resource heavy, given how inefficient a language PHP is resource-wise.

Now, I ain't gonna suddenly disappear into the ether like the Wikkii guys did, I'll be around at GP Rejects even if I forget to check in here, so the files will always be at Cynon's disposal if EFR decides to go down a different avenue. To be clear, I am not saying it is suddenly going to disappear! It stays where it is for now. But I'm not certain I can afford to keep this arrangement permanent for years. Unless of course I secure a job with a bumper salary at some point soon Laughing

That's fine, all I need to know is what your host configuration is and I can arrange to host it myself.

Bolded selected text because I know the pain there, I think I've had like 6 or 7 accounts banned from 6te.net because they ate memory like it was candy. It may or may not have had something to do with the points card generator I have. ;]

OK guys, so my bench testing has shown there is a serious problem specifically with TMPedia, rather than the server as a whole, which is being really difficult to diagnose. As a result, to protect the normally functioning FR wiki, I have closed off TMPedia to everyone bar Cynon so he can still have a poke around and try to work this thing out.

Also, I would appreciate it also if no-one attempted to access TMPedia anyway until it's announced on this thread we're back to business as usual. Thanks!

Pretty much what was stated previously -- only the two of us can get on it to test it. I have a feeling that the PHP parser is not really the biggest fan of some of the TMPedia templates I put in. The strange part is that I distinctly recall loading some of them on the FR wiki and putting them into use two years ago without any hiccups. The driver template, for example, exists over there, but I doubt it's been updated as much as the one on TMPedia has.

What I presently suspect is that one (or possibly more than one) of the templates (Driver template is the most likely candidate) was not updated properly. I suspected at first that the problem came from Haney doing the 2014 TMMC Points thing incorrectly, but after VVV and I went over everything a week or so ago I doubt that's the case. In all likelihood it's something that was either broken for some time and nobody noticed (likely -- these things happen) or that it only became a problem during the server move.

Either way, I'll find a bit of time to dive into it and look at it this week.

I believe it's possible to reference an external SQL database with a mediawiki and pull data from it. If so, I'll probably (read: definitely) try and use it for all of the RDBMS templates that I was attempting on TMPedia and everyone will learn to like them. Cool

Gotta be careful there Cynon. I reserve the right to be picky about the hosts you use for cross-site scripting/databases. I remember 000webhost, after they got broken into, had people load stolen accounts with malware!

I'm not stupid enough to trust 000webhost with anything like that. Also, I'm not sure what your webspace is configured like or what you're comfortable putting on it.

Any further process with the automatics? While they're useful, unless you're close to having the external database set up, I think we should just delete them for now, so that the rest of the wiki is usable (If I'm understanding the issue correctly).

Good News Everyone (sorta)

I am working towards testing the mediawiki 1.28.0 capabilities, and I have made a somewhat new TMPedia. Unfortunately it's from scratch, so pages will have to be transfered from the shoutwiki to this new one manually.

By no means I want this to be a permanent home for TMPedia, but more of a backup/test, as the shoutwiki not only got "forgotten", at the moment shoutwiki is in the process of transferring databases, so the intention behind this is to form a backup (possibly permanent home if the free hosting works better than expected) or simply test to see how mediawiki 1.28 works, this way I can devise a actual TMPedia on a better hosting service.


Primary TMPedia on Shoutwiki (will be once again editable in a day or two)
New Backup (Test) TMPedia

Something I forgot to add: I am adding the templates to the free hosting one on my own, some templates are broken under mediawiki 1.28, I'll have a check on that, but leave the template uploading to me, so I can have a check at the issues on my own.

UPDATE 2: Since  I'm too lazy to try to actually fix some of these broken templates, I'll literally work on the universal one that previously existed and rework it to avoid the flaws that are appearing on the transferred templates.

Gabe, which templates are you talking about that aren't working? Because the driver template that I wrote... some time ago... was a de facto universal with all major series broken out. The only thing I can think of to make it better would be if each series the driver participated in could be switched with tabs.

I also had a bunch of templates that had similar functions to a relational database (the neat season-long points thingy for TMMC).

Most (if not all, haven't seen all of them) of the series specific ones that use the Nationality template.
