Here, since I broke the last one, sure, let's have one of these. Why not. You're probably going to make me regret it though, but I'm cautiously optimistic. Crash on the sofa and don't steal anything. No seisatsu.png.

When the corporate social media giants decided to start censoring their end users in an effort to make their websites more profitable, they drove all of the censored folks onto more tolerant, noncommercial platforms, including the numbered channels of the internet. Those are the people who got 8ch.net/4chon/ shut down. It wasn't native imageboard users, it was people from Facebook, Twitter and Reddit who had been left with nowhere else to go.
We should have moved to 4chon.one while it was still available.

Oh god he's here


What is the topic of this thread?


Seisatsu finally confessed that hes really STI in the previous 4chon thread, but then he deleted that thread and started this one in it's place.


I just remembered this old episode
Steesatsu was really a guy ahead of his time, 4.5 years ahead.
I guess under Moore's law thats 3 iterations so it means he is 8x smarter than Hotwheels. Thats pretty smart, but still not smart enough to get your penis pictures off the internet.

Go to vch.moe. You should be able to find all the various bunkers from there.


I hear 8ch is coming back on September 5th.

( >>20145 ) I understand your feelings, I would definitely appreciate any advice and assistance you'd be willing to spare with regards to hosting a dead bort, Sei. I have a domain name prepared as well as hosting over RamNode secured-but I'm a layman who's frighteningly out of his element. Thanks man



What hosting plan did you get? You'll probably want 10-20gb of storage set aside for the imageboard. If you're inexperienced I suggest setting up Vichan like we're using here, except you should use Lainchan's fork which is still maintained. Lynxchan is newer tech but way more difficult to use, and also won't work on shared hosting.

Here's Lainchan's software: https://github.com/lainchan/lainchan

How much experience do you have with Linux? On a VPS which is what RamNode offers, you have to set up everything yourself, and may find yourself out of your depth fairly quickly.

You'll need to do the following with your Linux server:

* Change the root password.
* Add a new user, install sudo (if not installed), make sure your new user is in the sudo or wheel group (whichever exists).
* Log in over SSH as the new user.
* Make sure your new user is able to use sudo properly.
* Edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config and change the option PermitRootLogin to no. Make sure the line is uncommented. This will thwart most automated attempts to break into your server, of which there will be many.
* USE STRONG PASSWORDS. Nothing a computer could guess.
* Perform frequent software updates. Make sure your distribution's security repo is enabled, if it has one.

=Web Server Stuff=
* Install Nginx or Apache. We use Nginx, but Apache is easier and more widely documented and tutorialized.
* Get PHP working. Find a tutorial.
* Install MySQL.
* Install phpMyAdmin.
* Use phpMyAdmin to log in to MySQL as root to create a vichan database and vichan user. Keep note of the vichan user's password. Give the vichan user all privileges (except grant) on the vichan database.

* Upload the files for Vichan's Lainchan fork to your home directory. You can use something like FileZilla to do ssh file transfers, by connecting to sftp: //yourdomainname with your ssh username and password. Alternatively, use git on the server to clone the software in place.
* Using sudo, move the Vichan files into the appropriate web directory you configured with Apache. Then make sure all of the files are owned by the http user, usually www-data. I assume you know how to use chmod and chown recursively.
* Navigate to install.php in your web browser, and follow the prompts. You may be told that some of Vichan's directories need to be made writable by the www-data user. (It will say the permissions are wrong or something.)
* You're almost done! Go into mod.php and change the Vichan Admin password (which I believe defaults to "password").
* Install a frontpage theme to organize your boards.
* Look through inc/config.php in the Vichan directory and copy any settings you want to change into inc/instance_config.php. The config.php file contains the default settings, and instance_config.php (created during installation) contains any settings you want changed from the defaults.
* You're basically finished, everything else is done from the mod panel.

If all this is too much to follow, you may want to consider cancelling your VPS with RamNode and instead going for a shared hosting plan somewhere else. Then you only have to upload the Lainchan software and start at the install.php step.

If it seemed too difficult to follow but you managed anyway, you have just gained multiple levels worth of EXP in Linux Server Administration. Congratulations.

Don't do anything to end up in the news or piss off your hosting provider or they will drop you like a hot potato. Remember that DreamHost dropped the original 4chon.net for getting DDoSed. Keep frequent backups, offsite, of both the Vichan files and database. Make sure you always back up the files and the database around the same time so they are in sync.

An upside of using a RamNode VPS is that they offer DDoS protection for $6/month. Make sure you use the DDoS protected IP address in Apache and your DNS records or it won't work.

Godspeed, faggot.

Aah, so it's like that, huh? I understand everything now.

>*doesn't get it at all*

In all seriousness, thank you for the extremely detailed advice, it's certainly more than I deserve. As I expected I will probably have to do a lot of studying to even begin to follow along (would appreciate recommendations as far as that goes!). As I've gotten older and more set in my ways, having-perhaps unwisely-invested my time in other areas, I fear that starting from 0 will be extremely difficult and time consuming. I'm not against trying, but I'm also running quite a bit behind on my time-sensitive animation course already. I wouldn't want to devote the extraneous time required to get up to speed with several decades' worth of web development for at least a few months from now when my classes dry up.

>t. knows just a little html, css-and made a locally hosted inventory system in PHP/MySQL ONCE like 9 years ago and has never touched either since

With that in mind, I'm not against paying you for your extensive, hard-earned expertise in this regard on a case-by-case basis to expedite this process (help me set up the site/"help, bad thing happen!") and allow me to "catch up" later, but I understand and accept that you may not want to for a variety of good reasons you've expressed several times already. You certainly don't owe me any favors, but I'm just putting it out there.



poop ass fart ass nigga


>People taking what STEE says at face value


Should we establish a temporary bunker at julay.world? That's where /cow/ is right now. Between them and /v/edditchan, I think they're the better option.


8ch could be back in a matter of hours >>20149


That's probably a little optimistic, but we'll see. If 8gag isn't back tomorrow, I'll try to establish a bunker. Fuck Odilitime BTW. That faggot didn't even address endchan's demise.


> Fuck Odilitime BTW. That faggot didn't even address endchan's demise.

Don't blame others for the lack of a current 4chon. STIsatsu literally owes us a new board, but he refuses to make it because he doesn't think that people who think about politics in a way different than he does to have a place to express their own opinions. There was a comic that used to circulate on ye olde fourchon about this, but I don't happen to have it on my current drive.


I do want you to have a place, I just don't want my name connected to it, or it leaking all over my other boards. Politics is too hot a topic right now for me to be openly involved in such a politics-oriented community as 4chon. I have a feeling you'll all find a place pretty soon.


Have you seen the kind of attention and fame Jim Watkins is winning for himself lately? Do you want to be a famous internet celebrity and beloved free speech advocate like Jim Watkins?
Jim Watkins hosted /4chon/
and a lot of other crazy shit, but /4chon/ was always the keystone. I guess If you really want to go full retard and kiss the sky then you'll probably have to host a bunch of questionable pornography to go along with the nonconformist political views. Kind of absurd how nonconformist political views have become as taboo as CP

Okay but seriously when are we getting the real 4chon back?


It will be ready in a few days.


this but unironically heh

>posting from my Ipad 8


File: 1567710355484.png (145.58 KB, 795x393, sugg me off.png)

Gentle reminder that STIsatsu promised us our board a couple of days ago and still hasn't delivered. I just checked the /sugg/ thread, but he deleted it. Luckily I took a screencap to hold him accountable.


Saved for posterity. Where F*CK is our board?!?!!!?


what the heck I hate Seisatsu now heh




Wait wait wait, is he actually STI? So.. the guy that originally ruined 4chon.. wants to rehost 4chon.. is this right? Because that sounds like a whole lot of bullshit.




Made a bunker here if anyone cares to use it:


Fantastic. This should serve us until STI decides to take responsibility and make a board.


>STIsatsu trying to circulate more confusing rumors about himself
Is STIsatsu's name really Michael Horowitz? Does he really live in Australia?
No of course not, all bullshit was like the 4chon version of meximoot, it was just a big joke.


I couldn't vomit up more blood if I tried.


seisatsu i noticed our posts have been 90% of the activity on this whole site since we came here, going by the recent post list on /news/. we're breathing life into your site. that warrants a board imo. what if you made us a hidden board like /f**/?


Slow imageborts are GOOD!

While I find the idea of us posting away our twilight years in a hidden board on a venerable indie game fan community site quite humorous, it's also a little impractical n'est-ce pas?

No worries, just because this may be a bust for the most part (thanks for not banning us all tho) we'll probably be fine. Not only is 8ddit itself coming back fairly soon (according to some reports, within a week or so) but I will continue to explore other options for getting us back online on our own terms just like the good(!?) old days. I still have informal contact with quite a few people over discord, telephone, steam and so on and will make full use of that fact at the very least when 8chan comes back.

Literally who? And if this is STI then it's not surprising. He's always hated his baby.

How does anyone in web design or development stay sane.



Now that I remembered what a div tag is it looks a little better. I'm still retarded tho



incredibly based and undeniably redpilled




Express your feelings about HDV trying run an imageboard given that he seems to be having difficultly learning how to use basic HTML even at an extremely reduced pace

Alright dudes, should I just open 4chon.me already and take care of the extra stuff later? Frick.

Fair warning: it's going to be bare bones sh*t for now-and perhaps for quite a while-but at least it'll be OUR bare bones sh*t. Unless I figure out how to call an image file with whitespace in it I'm going to have to rename every single image file used for flags. The host I chose won't let me install ffmpeg (no .webm; sure wish they'd have made that apparent from the beginning! Will have to migrate services or hosts entirely soon) and I'm still having a hard time figuring out banners even though theoretically it looks like it should be a drag and drop situation.

What do you think fellas?


If you try to stress over every little detail like that before opening your imageboard to the public, it'll never happen. Even Uboachan is very much still a work in progress with lots of broken features. Just do it. You can fix these things later. You might also want to announce it on the temporary boards some of your fellas ran off to.


I've already bookmarked and awaiting things to "go live".
I'm interested in seeing what you've personally done and how it'll end up going as far as an "Altchan". I never got to check things out prior so I'm clueless to how things were before. So at the least I'll be a fresh visitor to your new lair.

This is absolutely correct, any project rather it be an imageboard, work of art, etc. If you're consistently afraid of public exposure on your work over every little detail you will never bring yourself to release it. I personally know from experience with art projects that I took years on and just gave up then sadly destroyed my progress as well as hard work out of fear. I'm glad that I've since matured greatly from those days and have been bringing more and putting my work out there even if it is under anonymous pretenses.


post hog


it's not an """altchan""". it's a group of 15 people who have been talking to each other in an imageboard format for over 10 years because they're too autistic to post without anonymity

>If you try to stress over every little detail like that before opening your imageboard to the public, it'll never happen.

end users are your volunteer beta testers, allow them to abuse the system and find out what flaws need correction instead of sweating it over yourself. the history of aviation regulation involves letting people find new ways to kill themselves or people on the ground with airplane and then finding out what went wrong and writing a new rule to prevent it in the future and thats a good model to base any long term, ongoing project on.


File: 1569087611545.gif (1.5 MB, 640x943, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.gif)

You're absolutely right, though what constitutes every little thing unfortunately varies wildly between someone like me and a Chad like you. For a relatively new example I just noticed .gif files of a certain size (the pair I tried were both over 2mb so I assume it's somewhere around there-others worked) aren't showing up despite the max upload being 10mb~ by default. Ostensibly basic stuff, if it hasn't already, is going to JUST frick my sh*t up.

Nonetheless, the site (https://www.4chon.me) is now "open" in this WIP state, and I'm going to mess around with a test board to try and figure stuff out like I probably should have been doing days ago I suppose.
