As you may have noticed, our Matrix server has been
down recently. Now, it has been up for the last few days,
however, we were waiting a bit to publish this post, wanting to set
up the bots first. We had some trouble installing NixOS on the
corresponding machine, however, especially over the last days as
nixos-unstable channel was blocked, forcing us to
nixos-unstable-small. Now, however, these
are running too,
and our JSON Feed bot even received an update.
What to do if you are a user on our server
Your old password will not work. We assume this is to us having
previously configured the password pepper incorrectly. If you have
not received a password reset yet, contact
us. Furthermore, some rooms you had previously joined will seem
gone, if your date of joining was after the last backup was
created. You can simply rejoin these, even if they are invite only,
by using a
matrix.to link with a
to a server that is not
participates in the room. Lastly, I am afraid most, if not all of
your old encrypted messages will end up being undecryptable.
What to do if you are a user on another server
Normally, nothing. However, if a user on our server seems unresponsive in any room, try to open a new private chat with them, as it may well be they missed your messages.
