15:49:57@davd:matrix.orgdavdI can... I also sent everyone invites to my nextcloud server if it's ever helpful
15:57:37@davd:matrix.orgdavdthe nextcloud server is encrypted end 2 end and has video conference capabilities for lots of people at once... also lots of file storage space, simultaneous file editing, and there's an app for that ... contact me for info or login
23:34:25@dornawcox:matrix.orgDorn  From Tom at Wolfes Neck - Hi Dorn, I did a little digging into goatech.org and it looks like it's suffering from the infamous Wordpress White Screen of Death. Most of the solutions in that article presume that you have access to your backend, but since I get a fatal error when I go to http://goatech.org/wp-admin/, I think our only recourse right now is to check with the web host, DigitalOcean. Based on their server status page, it looks like they've had some issues lately and did some emergency maintenance today. Someone would have to log in and create a ticket with their support and ask if they could take a look at it, which I can't do. Hope this helps!

12:00:15@mstenta:matrix.orgmstenta Thanks Dorn  - quick update: sudokita davd and I took a quick look yesterday, but we didn't have time to finish. We took a backup of the Wordpress database as a first step.
12:00:51@mstenta:matrix.orgmstenta It seems that the Wordpress installation was corrupted somehow. Many of the PHP files in /wp-admin changed on 3/22 and 3/23 - we don't know why.
12:01:11@mstenta:matrix.orgmstenta davd: Was Wordpress configured to auto-update itself, perhaps? Do you know?
12:01:30@mstenta:matrix.orgmstentaIf not, then my other concern is that the site was hacked and files were changed.
12:01:41@mstenta:matrix.orgmstentaBut hopefully it was just an auto-update gone wrong
12:02:48@mstenta:matrix.orgmstentaUnfortunately, I do not have the capacity to dig further into this right now.
12:04:50@mstenta:matrix.orgmstentaI may later...
12:05:11@mstenta:matrix.orgmstentaBut I am also not as experienced with WordPress, so if someone else is they may be able to debug faster.

12:06:58@mstenta:matrix.orgmstentaAs far as I can tell this is not related to any emergency maintenance of Digital Ocean itself, although perhaps if that happened at the same time as an automatic update of WordPress it caused corruption (possible!)
12:07:30@mstenta:matrix.orgmstentaBut in either case, it's not something Digital Ocean can help us with, because we have a custom VPS setup running WP in Docker - I think we would be on our own to fix it.
12:07:50@mstenta:matrix.orgmstentaTell Tom thanks for the input, though!
