    Information about the restart issues and rollback.

    We will rollback the servers 2 hours from now. Here's the message I recieved from our hosters.

    Hi, i've turned my server off. We lost data again. It seems that when the server restarts, all the progress goes away. Everything u've built will be set backed. I dont know if this has anything to do with the save, we have world save every 30min, we have restarts at 4.00 am, 12.00 am, 20.00 pm. I have implented a world save 1min before every restart.. I dont know if this will fix it.

    But please, could use backup the map, 2 hours from where this post has been send? The time here is 21:15 GMT+1

    Thank you!

    Hi Jonathan,

    Yes currently there is an issue with saving and restarting manually. We'll be sending out a customer wide email soon detailing the problem. Basically if you want to do a manual restart you have to issue the command "save-on" and enable level saving before you restart your server. I've submitted a request to the developer of McMyAdmin to by default have this command issued whenever a restart occurs since as of right now it does not. Just to clarify if you have additional restarts you must give the save-on command before the restart to ensure all the data is saved correctly. Hopefully this bug will soon be fixed. I apologize for the problems you've experienced related to it. Let me know if you need anything else.

    Lets hope this works with a rollback of 2 hours. We deeply apologize for this and anything lost during these problems. We are doing everything we can to fix this.

    Regards
    Arania Team

    Right.. So here's the deal.
    Apperently, they have disabled the backup system in the right time for us, to not be able to get a rollback.. It was something about it conlficting with some packages..

    This is what they said.

    I'm sorry to say that we had to turn off the backup system, because the software was in conflict with the package system on our server.

    And this is getting on my nerves, so I have requested to get my server packed and going to get a new host which costs more, but are more stable and helpful. I chose this company because i felt it was a good start, they where cheap and new. But now i'm going to buy from a hardcore hosting company called, privision. Their servers are even better and should be compeletly lagg free. The host will be located in U.K. This will happen Asap, as soon as I got my server downloaded I will get the new host right away. This might take alittle time tho. But bare with us, we are doing everything we can to fix what our hosters have destroyed. We will still have our map and plugins, but the rollback wont be fixed. And for this, we really apologize. We will give back everything that you have lost. We cant do more then that. And we're getting our new host asap.


    So, you will be able to build. Everything you do and build will be saved from now on. Nothing will be reseted. Now we know what caused this, and the problem is gone and solved.


    So please report to any moderator if you have lost any items during the rollbacks.

    I am for now shutting down the server to wait for our new hosts.
    Please be active in this thread to see when our server is back and running !

    This should not take long, if we are lucky this can be done by tonight. If not, it will happen tomorrow!

    Patience is a virtue.


    We hope to see you all online when the new host is installed and ready!

    So, now atlast i'm back at my home!
    Now I will be able to fix everything smoothly.

    For the new server, our new hosters gave us 48 hours from yesterday, to wait for their techs to install the server. I didn't think it would take that long. But it seems we have to wait alittle longer. But for now I do have everything I need, the only waiting we have to do. Is to wait for provisions techs to install our server and give me the details!


    Thank you for your patience!

    The server is up, and have been installed. I am working as hard and fast as I can to install all our plugins, world and everything to the new server.

    We are happy to tell you guys that we have fixed iConomy & Stargate.
    So they world correctly now! Whitelisted players will now be able to request stargates to their town, from Noobia.
    Angie & Eztoyloco is at the moment cleaning the server and fixing some stargates.

    iConomy information will be up shortley!

    Thank you for your patience!

    There is a new IP yes, but the current world is not ours.
    And no plugins are installed yet. This is what i'm fixing.
    So connecting to it now would be a waste.

    I really hope I will get this done by tonight, I think I will.

    The new IP will be Arania.provisionhost.com.

    Good to see its back up Smile

    Not sure if there's anything you can do about it but the current world map is a slightly outdated version (like 4 hours before work stopped being saved).
