[Charlie Harding, Ushahidi] @here how does one apply a "tag" to a post in V3?
[Charlie Harding, Ushahidi] Also why is the demo site so slow?
[Seth Hall, Ushahidi] "tag" meaning category?
[Seth Hall, Ushahidi] @Charlie ^
[Seth Hall, Ushahidi] oh wait, sorry, in dotcom mode. nm

[Charlie Harding, Ushahidi] @Seth I guess I was confused that Categories and Tags are the same thing
[Charlie Harding, Ushahidi] File uploaded
[Charlie Harding, Ushahidi] The icon looks like a tag
[Seth Hall, Ushahidi] @Charlie no, I was mistaken and thinking dotcom. nm

[ushahidi591 (guest)] Hello
[ushahidi591 (guest)] I deployed the new ushahidi 3.0 ... great jobs !
[ushahidi591 (guest)] but on this version is not yet possible to add a field "media" (upload photo) as the version 2 ?
[ushahidi591 (guest)] on platform/application/config/features.php -> I put 'media_uploads' => TRUE,
[ushahidi591 (guest)] any clue ?

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @Charlie slow demo site I think is largely because its a small Heroku box. Though I haven't had time to really do much performance work either
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] and categories = tags in v3..
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] you should only ever see them called categories other than in the API
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] custom icons on categories will be in soon..

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @will @Jason thinking about v2 -> v3 migrations.. if we were to accept uploads of older V2 db's to be imported, how could we safely restore those? without risking open access to the rest of the db server..
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] temporary server using docker or something? or limited mysql users?
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] temporary mysql server that acts as a proxy then dump to secure location and restore them from there.
[Will, Ushahidi] I would agree with that, limiting access to a db user that we control at the final step

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Right. We don't necessarily need to dump and restore either. We'd be importing once, running a v2 -> v3 migration and then deleting the old v2 db
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] so the temporary server need only live for the lifetime of the import
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] really does seems like a pretty good usecase for docker
[Will, Ushahidi] would the old version come as a dump?
[Will, Ushahidi] if they're not on the same host it would have to travel through a VPN ideally or over an ssh tunnel at least

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Old version would come as an SQL dump.. travel through a VPN when?
[Will, Ushahidi] if the v2 instance is not on the same host
[Will, Ushahidi] is this data transfer to a cloud instance or to a local instance?
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] I'm thinking about if we allowed users to upload there old self-hosted v2 db to Ushahidi v3 hosted
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] so they'd upload a db dump.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] We import to a temporary server
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] run the importer against that.. hopefully using rackspace's private network to connect to both v3 and v2 dbs.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] does that makes sense?

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] ok cool. In the first instance we'll focus on imports from Crowdmap Classic anyway , where we control the v2 source server already.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] But importing user uploaded dbs later would be nice
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] alright. I'm offline for the next few hours.
