PostSubject: Important News! Server Downtime?   Wed Jan 26, 2011 1:43 pm

Ok some of you may remember the Server crash's and roll backs we had... this was because we were pushing the server over its limits (40000) of memory.

To combat this We are moving to a nice new Window's server (we are on Linux) atm.

This is Good as we will be able to increase the server Capacity to a higher amount. and be able to do a lot more things server side.

The bad new's to this is that We will have to get a new IP Address and Port

The other bad news, is that we might have to reset town's and chests... (The Map will not Change!) but the admin side will change as I will need to rewrite all the configs. But I will get that done asap (ETA 30 mins)

I won't know when the server will go down, and how long it will go down for unfortunatly. But I would expect it to be in the next hour or so.

Thanks for the patience guys and gals.

I will keep you updated here.

Alomancy!

Update. Just recieved this.

Quote :
Hi,

We will copy your server folder over to the new machine, all your configs are saved in clanforge and won't be lost. The server downtime may be up to 30 minutes while the files are moved across. Unless there are unforeseen issues this should be the max time taken.

Your IP and Port will change.

So I assume it will be going down any minute now.

and with luck all should be the same except the ip and port.

So from what I gather, All the staff have gone to sleep (No surprise).

But I am going to go to sleep too which is bad news for you, because as fate will have it, the server will migrate when I am away.

If this does happen, I won't post the new IP until I am at my computer, so I can deal with any issues that arrise and make sure all the protecton plugins are working.

This will be roughly between 12:00pm and 01:00pm.

Once again sorry for any inconvenience and I will try to sort this asap

[16:38] <@CraftyBadger> hmm
[16:39] <@CraftyBadger> this move on your server folder could actually take quite a while
[16:39] <+qwebirc64687> A while as in 30mins or a few hours? =P
[16:39] <@CraftyBadger> the current minecraft machines we're setting up on are in a different datacentre, which was something I didn't think of before
[16:39] <@CraftyBadger> currently a few hours
[16:40] <@CraftyBadger> I'll see if theres any other machines I can use instead
[16:40] <+qwebirc64687> ok
[16:40] <@CraftyBadger> in the same datacentre
[16:41] <+qwebirc64687> Just do what you think is best =)
[16:42] <@CraftyBadger> found one :)
[16:42] <@CraftyBadger> should be a lot faster copying to this machine instead
[16:43] <+qwebirc64687> ok cool
[16:43] <+qwebirc64687> have you a rough ETA?
[16:45] <@CraftyBadger> under 30 mins this time :P
[16:45] <+qwebirc64687> Sounds great =)
[16:46] <@CraftyBadger> maybe even around 10
[16:46] <+qwebirc64687> That would be even better

Well the server seems to be down so I'm guessing the migrations started, remember to check the homepage for the Server status.
