Looks like whatever made Apple block my domain is gone. Hooray for that.
I’ve also updated webmail and associated interfaces. You can check it out here. Changes:
- Upgraded to the latest software
- HTTPS is now enforced
- Mail client has HTML5 notifications
- keyboard shortcuts
- drag and drop upload
- you can now change your mail password and forwards
- and a bit more…
I’ve submitted a question to the blocking authority, but no answers so far. Please let people know. I’ll update again when I know what the hell is going on.
New Mail SSL Certificate
I have purchased an SSL certificate for mail.tacomatelematics.com. So, in your mailer, as long as you use “mail.tacomatelematics.com” as your mail server, it will no longer complain about a self-signed certificate.
This also means that SSL is now fully functional for the webmail client. Since we no longer have the self-signed certificate concern, I will be disabling webmail access via standard HTTP. Finally.
Why hadn’t I heard of SNI years ago?
Web Server Update
The hard part of upgrading the server is done now. So that’s good. Aggregate downtime was about five minutes, hooray for virtualization.
I’m going to be adding some other things to the web server (in anticipation of wrapping the media streaming and distribution functions out of the media server), but that will have downtimes measured in milliseconds.
I’m upgrading the web server today. In fact, the web server we’re using right now is the backup image of the actual web server.
There should be a couple of outage about a minute or two long, but web performance is going to be slow as I make changes in LVM snapshots, and make backup copies.
This should all be done by tomorrow, the 11th of June.
