Hubzilla on Silverhaze.EU gone

Already announced months ago (so that the users had enough time to migrate) I've now shutdown my #Hubzilla hub running on Silverhaze.EU:

server:~# a2dissite
Site disabled.
To activate the new configuration, you need to run:
  service apache2 reload
server:~# service apache2 reload
[ ok ] Reloading Apache httpd web server: apache2.
postgres@server:~$ dropdb hubzilla

Hubzilla was a nice thing to try out, but I don't think that I've gained much benefit of this, because I also have #Friendica node running for years and a #Mastodon instance running for some time now.
Hubzilla is a nice software for what it is: a complete set of web applications. When you only want to have some kind of social web for the #... show more

@Ingo Jürgensmann yeah, postgres on Friendica is something we really have to address. And the thing with the channels does need some frontend work.

@Michael Vogel - when you have something to test feel free... I would volunteer to setup another node and do some tests... Migrating from MySQL would be nice as well, but I think that would be really a complex task. ;-)

It's a task that has to be prepared very well - and I guess we can finally address this, when we have changed all database calls - which will last some time.

Maybe I can help with some SQL queries then...

Top of the pop would be to have an abstraction layer where you can switch between databases and that keeps both in sync... that way everyone could decide which DBMS to use, but that's a crazy idea of course... would be a nice task for some students for GSOC or so ;)

This here is our abstraction layer: - we just have to convert all the old calls to the new ones from this class.
