Server Maintenance and possible down time.

Post by Havok » Fri Feb 19, 2016 9:37 pm

Hey guys. Server maintenance will be taking place starting between 9pm-10pm and lasting most if not all of the night. We're moving to new hardware and an updated OS. I'm not talking about my AutoTroll box BTW, but the actual hosting server. Long story short, sites will probably be offline during the time frame or at least part of it. I didn't want anyone to be surprised if you noticed things were acting funny.
Regards,
][avok

Things took longer to get finished up than anticipated however it looks like everything is running normally again on the server side. If you're experiencing any problems it most likely would be due to your DNS provider not being updated yet. That will resolve over day if that's the case. Other than that, let me know if you have any problems.

Finding it impossible to submit turns, bouncing due to DNS errors. Worked 12 hours ago, has been broken for the past 6+ hours. I'll try again tomorrow. Not sure if you may want to skip a few days of hosting since not everyone may be able to submit turns on time due to this error?

I thought everything was finally taken care of this afternoon and then around 5pm it all went to pot again. The asshats at the hosting co. have really dropped the ball. I couldn't even get into Cpanel at one point. We spent time this evening working on permissions across the server and the various accounts, etc. I'm still getting mail errors as well and have kept AutoTroll offline except when testing to see if mail has come in, and so far nothing has.

Everyone hold on to your turns and keep an eye on this thread. I'll keep you updated as I have new info to share.

I'm starting to see some mail trickle through. If you have outstanding turns, go ahead and send them in. If you get an error, let me know. Thanks

Hey ][avok - looks like you were up until 2 AM trying to fix this? We all really appreciate that, but don't kill yourself on it. We can wait.

Thanks again for all that you do!

My turn was accepted now, so it looks like there's hope!

The turn files and RSTs seem to be OK, but the game pages don't look like they are updating. Other than that - good to go!

On the other hand...

I sent in a turn about an hour and a half ago - nothing sent back and no update on the game page so far.
