Sorry folks but I’m having to do a little server maintenance so will be rebooting the server hosting rockstor.com.
The consequence of the inevitable downtime is expected to be a couple of hopefully short outages (few minutes each) for the main web site, Docs included, and for the Rock-ons repository. We also host a very old CentOS only variant of the “Rockstor-Base” rpm repository there. But this having a short downtime is not thought to present an issue to existing old installs.
The EULA linked to in the installer setup page is also hosted on this server here:
which currently reads as follows:
Rockstor comes with no guarantees or warranties of any sorts, either written or implied.
The Distribution is released as GPLv2. Individual packages in the distribution come with their own licences. A copy of the GPLv2 license is included with the distribution media.
It’s unavailability should also not present a problem other than the link being broken for the server reboot periods (copied in above so we don’t ask folks to tick for an uncertain reason). And one last element is a redirect from our old forum link of:
http://rockstor.com/forums (which like the old repo is only used in very old installs within the Web-UI.)
This forum is otherwise hosted on an independent server, as is Appman and our Subscriptions system. But building from source will also be affected due to a couple of jslib zips retrieved from rockstor.com during a source build: this single point of failure in source builds should ideally be fixed; all in good time however.
So in short expect a little down time for:
- Main web page.
- Very old rpm repo in CentOS variants.
- EULA link in setup page.
- Source builds as lib.tgz will be unavailable.
The lib.tgz is simply a tar zipped copy of our rockstor-jslibs repo here:
I’ll post again here once I’ve completed this latest ‘phase’.
Thanks for you patience; we try to keep things simple on the back-end but that in turn comes with some ‘old’ woes.
