Server OS and software updates
« on: July 19, 2021, 10:11:29 am »
I'm going to apply some OS updates and probably update some software versions today, July 19.  Expect little impact, hopefully just a quick reboot or two, but you never know.

I've worked around but not yet understood or solved the problem that caused the earlier downtime.  Expect a little more disruption as I continue to investigate and try things.

I think we're good now.  The package update system replaced a symbolic link needed on startup with a new directory that of course didn't have the right contents, and the MySQL server startup script was hanging at boot time.  This was the first package update of MySQL since the DB moved to the SSD drives earlier this year.  Now I know.
