BOINC and Science United have moved to a new server, running up-to-date versions of Linux (Ubuntu), MariaDB, PHP, GNU tools, Mediawiki, and so on. Thanks to Jeff Cobb for overseeing this; it wasn't easy. Let me know if any problems.

After a period of invisibility, everything seems to be back in place.

One small problem: the directory listing for https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/ - the download archive for tools and earlier versions - can't be displayed (although downloads of individual files still work). It would be most helpful to be able to see what's available.

My BOINC Manager now cannot connect to the new server. I have a blank manager: no projects, tasks, etc.(first time this has ever happened.)

Thoughts?

Apologies if this is a "user error".
When trying to create a new userid, I get the following error:

Yes, Climateprediction.net is Oxford based.
Having been able just now to reproduce the error, I will email Andy who does the web stuff there.

Edit: This site is completely separate from the project sites.

Do you plan to release this server version in a VM (or a ISO) "ready to go"??

The server David talks about is the physical hardware. Not the BOINC server software.

Message 97511 - Posted: 11 Apr 2020, 22:49:16 UTC - in response to Message 97230.  

Windows BOINC build is broken due to missed dependencies (https://boinc.berkeley.edu/git/boinc_depends_win_vs2013.git).

Last successful build was 10 days ago: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/BOINC/boinc/builds/31876019
Next was failed near 9 days ago: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/BOINC/boinc/builds/31907790

Looks like during update we haven't migrated dependencies. Could you confirm or reject this hypothesis?

The dependencies are under maintenance. It's known that they aren't available right now.

I am also receiving reCAPTCHA errors when attempting to sign up for new projects at LHC@home, Cosmology@Home, and Universe@Home. I attempted to create the accounts one week ago, and gave up after trying from different devices and browsers. I tried again today, but it still doesn't work. After realizing the inability to request help as a guest in the individual project help forums, I also created an account here.

Try signing up via BOINC Manager->Tools->Add project. This should circumvent the reCaptcha.
