@AtomicBlond I tried to chance some settings, because another user had problems using the XMPP over TLS service. Restarts were inevitable, sorry!

Also XMPP over TLS ("XMPP camouflage") is available, again 🎉

TOR hidden service via m4c722bvc2r7brnn.onion is available again! 🎉

@nuron danke für den Hinweis - das hätte ich tatsächlich vergessen ;-) Danke!

TOR status:

.onion link: not working ❌
"normal" link: working ✔️

Some services like upload are not ready, yet. Basic chat functionality is restored.

Some clients have already found the new IP and are connecting :-)

Firewall is configured and clients should be able to connect.

@STP_KITT Yes, it might take up to an hour, but clients will find the new IP address automatically :-)

Old Prosody instance is powered down. New instance is prepared and running.

Waiting for XMPP clients to connect to new IP address.

"why did that take so long?" you might ask.

Well ... version 0.11 brings a lot of new features and configurations needs to be adapted to that. All in all it's a mayor upgrade, which needs to be planned and prepared.

I didn't have the time in the last couple of month. But now that a server move is necessary, I'll do all the dangerous stuff at once.

Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope that everything goes well! 🤞
