Today I've made changes to file structure on the server and also some clean-up has been done. I believe that the new conventions will be easier to understand for everyone.

Structure changes

  1. Individual files from the music directory, which was placed under the main domain, were moved to folder. Thanks to this, you are now able to download each file individually from file listing. The old links will work, because there is a symbolic link left in the old location.
  2. The same as above is true for software made by denis111 (soft directory).
  3. The content of big files directory was merged with mp3 directory. It contained only mp3 files anyway, so keeping it split was no longer necessary.
  4. Changed names of directories:
    mp3        -> music_mp3
    remixes    -> music_mp3_remix
    music pack -> music_pack

  5. The KEY-GENeration compilation, made by one of our members, was moved to music_cd directory and compressed using RAR-5.
  6. Old MusicPacks were moved to the archive directory.

Naming conventions

  1. The music pack archive is now named using the following skeleton: KeyGenMusic_MusicPack_<version>_<type>.7z
    So the latest pack is named as follows:
    KeyGenMusic_MusicPack_2018-10_full.7z    - full package
    KeyGenMusic_MusicPack_2018-10_update.7z  - update package
  2. The keygenmusic-key.asc, which contains the public key for digital signature verification, was renamed to KeyGenMusic_ReleaseKey_2012.asc. It indicates that the key is used for signing releases and that the key was generated in year 2012.

Security changes

  1. Because of known security problems with the MD5 and SHA-1 hashes, I've replaced them with SHA-2-256 and SHA-2-512 hashes.
  2. The digital signature has not been changed, the release key will be used till about 2022.
  3. The hash files will be signed as well in the near feature.
  4. Keep in mind, that only denis111 holds the private key, so only he can sign the release packages.

Apart from that, in the next two months, there is an server upgrade planned. We will be migrating to new machine, the newest version of phpBB, switching to HTTPS and many more. Stay tuned.

That's all for now.
