Socrates @socrates

@omniadisce Try going to:

Preferences > Authorized apps

Then revoke Mastalab, then try again?

@omniadisce Restarted, now back up

Give it a shot?

@omniadisce I'll restart the server in like 2 min

@omniadisce Let me know if you can't figure it out and I'll do some more digging! :)

@omniadisce I just downloaded the app and logged in with it

Can't reproduce your error

Power down your phone and restart maybe? (Just guessing here)

@noelle @theartguy At some point I'll have to figure it out, but I haven't clearly thought through what the policy on donations to scholar.social should be yet tbh

How about we see how things are looking at the end of the month, and if necessary, make the upgrade happen?

@theartguy At least for me, the instance is working well enough that I'm not feeling like shelling out the extra ~ $50

But that may change

@theartguy Mastodon has gotten a bit more memory-intensive over the last few versions

To make scholar.social work, it costs:

* $30 per annum for the domain name
* $60 per annum for a VPS with 1 GB of RAM
* $3 per annum for Amazon S3 (DB backup and media hosting, assuming that the average amount charged for the 4 months we've been up will continue)

The next tier up for VPS is $108 per month for 2 GB of RAM, a difference of $48

@theartguy I restarted the server. Any better on your end?

And we're back; scholar.social is now running on Mastodon 1.5.1!

Downtime warning:

I will be upgrading scholar.social to Mastodon 1.5.0 sometime tomorrow in the afternoon. I don't expect there will be much downtime, but I have been surprised before. :P

Sorry everyone, scholar.social went down for a bit, not sure why

I restarted the server, seems to be working :/

Not sure what happened

Woke up and was getting a bunch of Error 500's

Restarted the server, seems to be working, will monitor closely!
