Currently, migrating our tube site on Jade.
It is the most easy of all our sites to migrate.
The SSL (https) is disabled until I reconfigure it.

The DNS propagation is long, we need to wait that can take 1h at 24h.

If you can read this file http://footfetishfocus.com/test.txt it's ok for you, you are on Jade. Else, you need to wait the DNS propagation.

Few news:
The migration of footfetishfocus.com went well, the time average load time goes from 1.4s (on previous hoster) to 0.44s (on Jade).
Either a gain of speed 68.57%.
Improvements and optimizations can still be made.

This numbers are the first of the result for today. This will evolved, I'll do a average after few days.

The next site for the migration will be upload.forum-area.com.
When I'll do it, this site will be in maintenance, all thumbnails will still working but not the website, normally.

To inform you, today, I have migrated successfully our web analytics tool (matomo) to Jade.

For the moment, I have issues with the sending mail on Jade, all mails go to spam folder. I'll have to fix this before I can start to migrate the forum.

Also, the next site for the migration is upload.forum-area.com. Maybe I'll do it before fix mail, depends of my humor. The mails of this site is not really indispensable contrary to the forum.

I have also to make the optimization of footfetishfocus.com, it's to my todo list.

Few news:
- I have improved the security of Jade.
- Optimized and improved the security of our tube site.

Indeed, we undergo numerous brute force attacks, so, that was necessary.

I have maybe identified the issue for mail spam, I'll work on it in the future.

It's crazy, this last 24h we have had over 7100 fraudulent connection attempts to Jade in SSH only.
I don't even dare count attempts to connect of other protocols 😅
There is a lot of Chinese IP but not only.

Currently, I'm still configure Jade like scheduled websites backups, testing restore of backup, etc.
There is a lot of work to do on a dedicated server !

Not surprise !
Banks are attacked too... So take (quickly) the money ( if you have some) and run !
Everyone is at home, so, the attackers too !
And my firewall tells me and blocks multiple attacks on my PC.
what era !
Thank for the work you do Luzik.
Hope everythings are fine for you.

Apparently, it’s not targeted attacks but rather robots.
I have simply change the default port of SSH and since 2 hours nothing ! No connection attempt !
Now, if we have connection attempt on SSH it is probably targeted attacks (need to scan open ports for found it).

Of course, I have setup firewall etc.. On Jade, so we are safe for the moment. I'll do a pentest when I done with all config to see if I have forget something.

I did this motd (welcome screen on SSH). It's useless but pleasant when I connect on it.
