ssh issues
I don't have the admin password.

I couldn't use these instructions
1) My ssh version is 5.3
2) I couln't figure out how to edit the various host names

jwalling@ubuntu:~$ ssh
ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out
(Note: There is no prompt, just a static cursor - I would've entered a password if I had one)

I used these Putty instructions:
I replaced plink.exe with plink since I'm using Ubuntu, not windows.
Result: Putty just showed a static blank screen with with no prompts or responses.

I'm not clear on how my public key is involved, if at all, in using ssh to access the crisiswiki project

If you are able to connect via ssh, please share your ssh command string.

Block Mopaydayloanstore and Shakeelawaseem001

Could you block User:Mopaydayloanstore on this wiki, please? Also I think for User:Shakeelawaseem001 you only deleted his user page, but did not block him properly. --Tim Landscheidt (talk) 08:07, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

And there's User:Naadya … :-) --Tim Landscheidt (talk) 07:22, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

Please reply to this post if they are still functioning. This will help the ongoing process to identify abandoned projects and delete them from Labs.--Sandaru (talk) 18:58, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Replica c1.labsdb to be rebooted Monday 2017-10-30 14:30 UTC

A tool you maintain is hosting data on labsdb1001.eqiad.wmnet (aka c1.labsdb). This server will be rebooted Monday 2017-10-30 at 14:30 UTC.

Normal usage of the *.labsdb databases should experience only limited interruption as DNS is changed to point to the labsdb1003.eqiad.wmnet (aka c3.labsdb). The c1.labsdb service name will not be updated however, so tools hardcoded to that service name will be interrupted until the reboot is complete.

There is a possibility of catastrophic hardware failure in this reboot. There will be no way to recover the server or the data it currently hosts if that happens. Tools that are hosting self-created data on c1.labsdb will lose that data if there is hardware failure. If you are unsure why your tool is hosting data on c1.labsdb, you can check the database and table names at

This reboot is an intermediate step before the complete shutdown of the server on Wednesday 2017-12-13. See Wiki Replica c1 and c3 shutdown for more information. --BryanDavis 00:20, 28 October 2017 (UTC)
