#167055 Donation - $550...

Posted by Krydos on 10 November 2019 - 06:15 PM

The donation is verified.

I seriously can't believe my eyes. That is VERY generous of you. When we originally set the goal for the gofundme we all had little to no expectation of actually getting that many donations. It's not a secret that HelioHost has lost money for like 4 years in a row. When we do our taxes in December I guess we'll know for sure, but I have a feeling this is going to be the first year in a long time that we've actually finished the year in the black. It's not easy running a non-profit, and over the years we've had to grow and adapt to the changing world to stay in business. Ashoat started this company back in March 2005, so in just four months we're going to be celebrating our 15th anniversary. What a great way to celebrate by launching the new Sparkie server, fully funding the gofundme, and actually not losing money for a whole year.

I'm not going to lie, there have been many times where I've questioned if it was worth all the effort to keep HelioHost running. Dealing with customer support issues we mainly see the worst. People complaining and being unhappy about things and breaking our terms of service are generally the loudest, and get the most attention so it's easy to forget about all of the thousands of people that we help each and every day. It's just amazing to me to see the support from the community for this little project. Donations like this prove that it's not just me that wants to see this non-profit succeed, and it makes me want to carry on and continue improving HelioHost. Maybe someone reading this message is just like you Caleb, they may not be able to afford paid hosting right now, but after using our free service for a while they find themselves in a position financially to make a generous donation of their own.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank Roy for his also very generous donation of $300. Between the two of you 31% of the goal was achieved. A big thanks goes out to all the small donors as well. Obviously the biggest donations get most of the attention, but the small donors are where the other 69% of our funding came from. If you're reading this and thinking that there's no way you could donate $550 yourself, just know that when we get hundreds of small $5 donations it all adds up eventually. Every dollar helps.

I don't really know what to say other than, "Thank you!"

#166271 [Solved] Procrastination and Confusion: DNS Issues

Posted by Krydos on 24 October 2019 - 12:11 AM

You didn't do anything wrong. That error just means your old account wasn't fully deleted yet. Try adding your domain as an alias now.

#166250 [Solved] Use HelioHost as a backup email server

Posted by Krydos on 23 October 2019 - 12:35 AM

You're getting that error because foti.eu isn't hosted on our server.

You can fix that without updating your nameservers by changing your main domain to foti.eu. https://www.heliohos.../scripts/domain

#166195 [Answered] Cron job status python

Posted by Krydos on 21 October 2019 - 05:35 PM

Yeah, the servers used to run on PDT/PST time because that is where they are physically located, but it makes more sense with our global community of users to have the servers set to UTC which has the added benefit of not changing for daylight savings twice a year.

#166099 HelioMine Beta

Posted by Krydos on 18 October 2019 - 06:35 PM

HelioMine Linux 0.4

The newest version of HelioMine Linux is updated to support the changes that happened recently to turtlecoin. The mining code that we were using, stak, does not support turtle at all anymore so we have switched to ninjarig which is a fork from xmrig. Completely different mining software means I had to rewrite about 90% of the program. Anyone still running HelioMine Linux 0.3 will get an error about not knowing what to do with the assignment if they try to run it. You must update to 0.4 in order for the miner to do anything.

To uninstall the old version just delete heliomine.sh, heliomine.conf, and any subdirectories:

rm -rf heliomine.sh heliomine.conf xmr-stak aeon-stak-cpu xmr-stak-cpu trtl-stak ninjarig
To install the new version:
wget https://krydos.heliohost.org/heliomine.sh && chmod 755 heliomine.sh
To run it:
When you want to stop the miner press ctrl-c once.

Since this is a pretty major update I need some people to test it out before we make a news post about it or anything like that. Let me know if anything is acting weird.

The most common cause of 500 errors is incorrect permissions. Make sure all your files have 644 permissions, and your directories have 755 permissions.

#165827 [Solved] Is there any way that Krydos can install Parsoid on Tommy?

Posted by Krydos on 11 October 2019 - 06:40 PM

Removing the custom 500 page doesn't change the fact that your redirects are looping off into infinity. For instance, if you go to parsoid.wcats.tk it redirects you to parsoid.wcats.tk which in turn redirects you to parsoid.wcats.tk and if that wasn't enough it then redirects you to parsoid.wcats.tk until the server has enough of it and says, "No, you don't get to be in an inifinte loop. 10 redirects is the limit. You're getting a 500 error now."
