Finally a fix for symlinking to anahita #cli on #windows! Delete anahita file in main directory and execute: mklink anahita vendor\anahita\anahita\bin\anahita

Please keep the bug reports coming. We've been releasing frequent updates to make Anahita more stable, all because you've been taking the time to report an issue and work with us. Thank you for that!

You need root access in your server to install Anahita. Might seem obvious to some, but after several attempts of installing Anahita in a shared server without root access, we finally decided it was lack of root access that was keeping Anahita from populating the database. We got errors such as "The MySQL server has gone away" when trying different ports that didn't work. "Access Denied: check permissions" was the other variant when the ports were right.

This was an incredibly difficult night for us. It took about 7 hours to get things back up again. First a notification bug sent out hundreds of notifications to your mailboxes. I sincerely apologize for that. I should have done more to prevent that, but despite all the measures and tests, the bug lurked up in the worst possible way. Then a server reboot made it impossible for us to access the server. Turned out there was a conflict between a Rackspace software and Centos update and we had to ... Read More

I sincerely apologize for that. I should have done more to prevent that, but despite all the measures and tests, the bug lurked up in the worst possible way. Then a server reboot made it impossible for us to access the server. Turned out there was a conflict between a Rackspace software and Centos update and we had to login in emergency mode and put things together. Rackspace support team and engineers were champions of the evening who spent 3+ hours with us until everything was back online and functioning again. Now we have to fix the notification bug this weekend so it won't creep into your projects. Here are the status updates from the evening http://blog.getanahita.com/2017/11/our-sincere-apology-for-the-email-flood/ Read Less

Reminder that next 3 days are the weekly #Anahita #Hackathon days. We will be fixing some bugs and have a 4.3.10 release ready. We'll also be working on the Anahita #React app. Follow the project group to get updates, participate, or work on your own Anahita project alongside.

Youtube videos have stopped working. Must be a change in their API. #YouTube

I'll be posting instructions on how to configure crons for processing email notifications and cleaning up the mailqueue for the failed messages. That is how you can prevent a #RogueNotifications situation happening.

Server is reconfigured and mail notifications are working as expected. No more rogue notifications. I will post an article so you you'll know how to prevent a similar situation and configure your mail notification correctly. #RogueNotifications

Good news is that it's long weekend and our server is back online and running. We stopped the rogue notifications. Now it's time to simulate the scenario on my local machine and find out what exactly went wrong. The going to share the results with you, so you'll be well prepared. We do a lot of experiments here in order to build new things. Sometimes those experiments blow up. It's better if they happen here than a commercial project, otherwise how else can we innovate?

My sincere apologies for the email spam. Looks like we had some unsent notifications in the database that just got released despite our effort to disable them. 😖
