We just moved from StartSSL to Let’s Encrypt certificates for all public Jabber domains including the certificate for this website. You can find the new certificate fingerprints on the Server Specifications page.
This will affect Jabber itself and all transport services, and also this website. And it will take place during the next 24 to 48 hours. Please be patient and expect some service outages. We changed the TTL of our DNS zones to 1 minute but nevertheless it could be that your client still looks for the old server. You might need to relogin to the Internet and/or restart your client.
We will be back here when everything is moved. Until then you also can reach us on Twitter, where a link to this post will also be posted.
The three transports finally work again. Thank you for your patience.
The other transports like SMS, Disk and JMC will follow asap. Please stay tuned.
All Spectrum based transports (ICQ, MSN, AIM, Yahoo, GG…) are up and running again for half a day now. For a complete list see the sidebar widget on the right side of the webpage.
There is still a lot of work to do, we will keep you posted.
Ok, the main virtual host jabber.hot-chilli.net and all private virtual hosts moved to the new server today. Also the website and the transport data.
“Transport data” because the transports itself do not run, yet. We need some help from Spectrum maintainers – maybe there is something basicly wrong with the new config files or Spectrum 2 is still too buggy. We will see. Until then please stay tuned and be patient – we do not want to have the transports offline for a long time, but it can take some days.
Also Prosody is having some issues on which we are working hard, especially the maintainer of Prosody, MattJ. Our server is having a lot of load, also “crazy” users 😉 and a Debian system which seems to create more problems with Prosody than other Linux distributions. So if the Jabber server itself is offline from time to time in the next days, we are working on it.
On the new server we activated two new public domains:
Feel free to register accounts. 😉
In-band registration is open for now (also for the other domains migrated to Prosody already) – and might be changed as soon as possible to our web registration form which has to be changed because of our migration to Prosody.
We just migrated the first virtual hosts to the new server and Prosody:
Please tell us about problems you might experience. And we also like to hear some positive feedback.
