To keep using JR or not?


Using Jamroom

FWIW, the new JR5 is AWESOME. Went through a few headaches of my own getting it migrated but it was worth the wait...

JR5 to JR5 site to site import?


Installation and Configuration

@Brian - understood. As a matter of fact, I am doing away with Audio uploads on my site and have notified my users it will be soundcloud import only.

And just so I have a complete picture. Would this method work also?

1. Run an full S3 backup to Amazon
2. Destroy droplet, create smaller droplet in same datacenter (digital ocean) obtains the same IP address
3. Build out LAMP, install JR
4. Use the restore tool to restore DB.

THanks for all the info and suggestions, I'm just trying to build a complete picture of my options (pros/cons) before I go through all this.

Thanks!
Brian

JR5 to JR5 site to site import?


Installation and Configuration

Would it be possible to also

1. run a backup of the database using phpmyadmin.
2. destroy the droplet,
3. recreate a smaller one in the same datacenter
4. build out LAMP
5. reinstall Jamroom
6. reimport the database

Just reviewing my different options here...

JR5 to JR5 site to site import?


Installation and Configuration

Environment - I'm on DigitalOcean hosting.
I have a situation where I need to move from a larger sized droplet to a smaller sized droplet. Unfortunately, DO doesn't have a way to resize down their droplets (with a few clicks) =(

https://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digitalocean/suggestions/4074700-downgrade-option-not-just-upgrade

So, contacted DO support and they presented me with an option to:

1) create a new smaller droplet in the same datacenter
2) use rsync to sync the files between the two droplets
3) take a snapshot of the smaller server
4) destroy the larger server to release the IP
5) rebuild a new server from the snapshot and it should reclaim the same IP

My question is, does jamroom have the capability (perhaps a backend tool/module not offered to their customers) to do a site to site migration?

I understand it wouldn't be the same IP, but what I could do is prep a smaller sized droplet (install LAMP, etc), JR performs the JR5 to JR5 migration, then I can cut over DNS?

OR can JR perform the rsync migration as prescribed by DO, and I can pay for a custom support incident?

Please advise on any viable options.

Thanks!

Quicker way to process Newsletter bounces from Mailgun


Suggestions

I'd really love a quicker way to process bounces between Mailgun and the stock newsletter campaign program in Jamroom.

Last email newsletter (over 14,000) I have about 325 bounces. Most of them are of the "account does not exist" type.

For simplicity sake, I just go through my system and search for the email in user accounts, then copy the profile name, then go to the profile tools, search for the profile, then delete.

So I guess the question is, can your Mailgun module pull the list of bounces from their system, then make a feature in the newsletter module to bulk delete the bounced accounts based on the email?

I would really love this, not sure how many are in the same boat as me, but chime in here if you think this would be a good feature for site admins.

Peace out!

Banned items question


Using Jamroom

I'm processing my bounce backs from the last newsletter I sent (14,000 emails), and i'm just over all the bogus aol.com, aim.com and blackberry.com emails that are "user does not exist" type bounces - 850 bounces.

I'm cross referencing those emails w/ the user/profile and noting the last login date, and deleting anyone that basically hasn't logged in over a year.

There are also some domains that seem sketchy to me - 163.com, 37.com

I'm also noticing inactivity from a lot of .edu domains. Presumably students who are no longer in school.

I'm working towards enabling the oneall login/signup on my site - which hopefully most people will choose facebook, twitter, or gmail to authenticate.

Probably more work than I need to do, but I'm doing some much needed clean up before I move forward.

Thanks!

Banned items question


Using Jamroom

Question - when attempting to sign up for the site, and a user is attempting use a banned email domain, can Jamroom spit out an error message to the user that specifically says "Sorry aim.com is not an allowed email address"

or something to that effect. I guess I'm wondering if you can give the end user some indication that they should use a different email address, instead of the standard error message.


Thoughts?
