Moving to a new server

Postby RAM » Wed Jul 01, 2020 1:11 pm

Jam is moving the game to a better and cheaper server. He has to use a two day old backup to do it. We will loose everything for the past 2 days. No sense in adding or doing anything. It may be wiped. Once the new server is running and functioning, he may be able to move more recent backup so nothing is lost, but just want to be careful in case that can not happen.

Thx for the warning.
Good to see he takes the effort to move it to new server, guess alternative would be to shut it down. Good sign he still cares enough about the game to keep it going, instead of just cutting the cost as probably most would do.

Well, I guess I am an idiot and misunderstood.

<RAM_> I suggested everyone halt on building until you get the servers switched just in case you can not import a newer update. Was that an idiot idea? Should we go back to playing as usual?

<jam> yes totally unnecessary man
<jam> I would never let you lose progress
<jam> the backups and restore process is really routine

Jam has been working for the past two weeks trying to get the new server up and running. New server has updated version of software and much of the code has to be brought up to that. Taking a lot of time to test, debug, update code, and retest. Much is working now. Nothing in game is affected. Everything is being done on a test server. Once all that is updated and working well, the game will switch over with little to no notice.

Once the new server is completed, then game updates are next.

Most the updates to run on the new server are done. There are a few more things, some may be bugs from the previous server, need to be worked out. Jam has me on the test server helping to debug. To do that, it makes it a little less easy for me to be in game as much. I will drop in today for a bit, but if something is needed, PM me here on the forum.

Some of the server updates are really speeding up the processes. I also think we might get a few patches server side that we have been wanting for a while, like SM search. This will come after everything else is sorted though.

This is till progressing. I was recruited a few weeks ago and have been spending most of my time on the new server testing. We are getting really close. Once we can get the new server running, new stuff is coming.

Pretty much all the testing for the new server is done. There was a lot of server side stuff that had to be updated. I think we got it all. I am sure we missed one or two things, but we even went all the way through the Neptune Project stuff too.

Jam said he plans to move the server over next week. It will be about 1 hour of downtime. That all depends on how long it takes for the ISPs to move the domain. It could be 5 minutes or a couple hours. No way of knowing.

Jam will try to do it during a time when few if any usually play, so most will not even notice anything. Once that is done, he plans to update the client. Terraforming will be pretty much top of the list along with a few client patches.

What day are you planning to move the server? Just a beginner, I'm planning to start the game and now I'm thinking how not to lose progress. Of course, I went through a couple of quests, but decided to start mastering the game from the forum. You still need to be aware of. And so I would go forward, and then progress would roll back and there would be a desire to quit the game.
