[RESOLVED] Server Status - 13 March 2016

Postby Kilaana » Thu Feb 25, 2016 4:08 am

In the middle of an operating system update which unexpectedly failed, bringing the server down with it, subsequent attempts to restart the OS did not work and remained unresponsive. Server files are intact when checked, so the character database and all other module files should be safe.

We are working to find a solution to get the OS running again, but it may take a complete rebuilding which may take some time. At worst, a few day's worth of moving across files; at best a rough and dirty temporary fix to have a rudimentary station set up but at this point I cannot guarantee the server will be run until we arrive at that milestone.

I am aware that this will unfortunately affect several significant player events and quests in the next few days. Please know we are working hard to restore the system and we apologize for the downtime.

If you wish to help, we ask that you beseech the powers of Tyr, Torm and Ilmater, offer a hefty sum of coin to Tymora, make a ritual sacrifice to the Dark Gods, and tell Shar daily that she is the one and only love in your life.

The server went up earlier but has been experiencing crashes upon logins. We're looking into it and ask for your further patience.

Server is back up for good, hopefully with no further glitches.

Due to technical difficulties, DM capability for the server is still out. We ask for your patience meanwhile, and hope that you will find player-initiated RP still tons of fun and meaningful.

The server is back in business with DM capabilities restored. See you in Impiltur.

Re: [RE-OPENED] Server Status - 02 March 2016

Following a recent update of the server module together with some scripting fixes and tweaks to our haks, the problem of DM login crashes has returned. We are currently trying to figure this one out all over again.

The server will still run the latest version of the module whenever our builders have added to it, and is still fully playable for everyone with the exception of DM activity being on hold until this oddity can be fixed.

We apologise that there is no ETA at the moment but we hope it won't hinder you from enjoying some player-to-player RP. See you in Impiltur.

Server Status - 10 March 2016

Postby Kilaana » Thu Mar 10, 2016 12:03 am

After grappling with an external server host provider problems for nearly three weeks, only to be met with disappointment, we have managed to locate another service and have been making some tests to run TER under the new environment. So far, things seem to be working well and DMs are able to log in successfully. However some smaller things that affect the databases and real-time need to be fixed, along with copying over player database files before we can migrate to the new server IP.

Thanks for your patience.

We have now successfully moved over to the new server. Stress testing will be involved at the current max login of 24. DM functionality should also be restored now.

To connect, go to draugr.tomb.org.uk.
