Postgres server added

04.09.2020 - 12:49

The new PostgreSQL server is now available (accessible from LabraNet/student/over VPN) at https://postgres.labranet.jamk.fi. The server is running postgres 12.4, and supports TLS but does not enforce it.

Unlike the MariaDB/MySQL servers, you only get one database, but you can create more schemas inside that database as needed.


Student server updated

21.08.2020 - 09:51

The server has been updated to Centos 8, with PHP 7.5. User data was migrated over and the web page locations and php configuration were preserved, so the only thing you might immediately notice is that the SSH keys changed.  The PHP version changing may also have caused breakage depending on your usage, and configuration differences may cause issues with usage patterns we didn’t explicitly test. If you have a new problem you would like us to look into, please contact the LabraNet helpdesk.

A new sql server (accessible from LabraNet/student/over vpn) is also available: https://mariadb.labranet.jamk.fi , running MariaDB 10.5. The old mysql server at https://mysql.labranet.jamk.fi is still functioning, but will be phased out eventually (probably next summer.) Please use the new one for all your new mysql-type database needs, and if you have anything important to you on the old one, you might want to migrate it over during the starting school year.

A PostgreSQL server is also planned in the short term, but is not available yet.
The new postgres server is now available at https://postgres.labranet.jamk.fi, running postgres 12.4.

Windows 10 and LabraNet VPN issues

03.10.2018 - 09:08

LabraNet users have stumbled upon an issue where LabraNet services seem unavailable when LabraNet VPN is connected. Services affected are at least:

  • gitlab.labranet.jamk.fi
  • helpdesk.labranet.jamk.fi

This issue causes name resolution to return an incorrect IP Address for forementioned services even when a full tunnel is forced. This is due to smart multi-homed name resolution and automatic interface metrics.

LabraNet VPN guide has been updated with step-by-step instructions on how to fix this. Read Windows 10 – Additional settings for more info if this is an issue for you.
