2022 November 2

Made a mirror backup to Juno.

Made a backup AMI:
    Scanalyst Backup 2022-11-02 ami-00582249f4fecd748
        /           snap-0fb07d2230caddd92
        /server     snap-00644fa844a49db8b

The system had been up for 33 days.

    systemctl enable httpd
so the Apache HTTPD will restart automatically on reboot.

Installed 32 update packages, 26 for security. including a new kernel.
    yum update

Stopped Discourse.
    cd ~/discourse/image
    ./launcher stop app


The system came up promptly after the reboot.  We are now running on
kernel 4.14.294-220.533.amzn2.x86_64.

The Discourse Docker container started automatically after the reboot
and serves HTTP requests normally.

Apache HTTPD restarted automatically after the reboot, showing we have
made a suitable sacrifice to the angry god systemd.

On the Discourse Upgrade manager page:


There was no need to rebuild the Discourse image after this update.

The Admin page now reports we're running on 2.9.0.beta11.

Verified that spoilers and MathJax are working after being updated.

The problem with port numbers specified on URLs breaking embedding of
images and media has not been corrected.  I will escalate this to a
full-fledged bug report.

I appreciate your doing this still incomprehensible work to maintain Scanalyst. Maybe, possibly, I will come to understand eventually - as I continue to do things like establish and maintain my NAS (it is working fairly smoothly). I find that every digital task I undertake increases my understanding incrementally. I am finding that networking is about as magical as computing itself.
