Server Upgrade - Downtime 5/01/13 - Update


As you may have heard, our server was experiencing some issues last night due to our host. We complained (as this wasn't the first time we've had server issues) and as a result our host has given us a free upgrade to a quad core Intel Xeon server (more powerful than an i7). This should decrease server lag significantly and we have been promised no more downtime (lets hope). The upgrade will be in progress tomorrow morning so we may experience some downtime in the process (around a couple of hours).

As always,

Update: I've just been told that the server upgrade will now be performed on Monday morning.

Update: The server has now been upgraded and everything seems to be running normally. I apologise for the delay, I had to reinstall the web server and the forum database as our host wasn't able to swap over the hard drive from the old machine. Anyway, its good to be back ;)

Let's see how the server will work...Benzy said something about optimizing it by getting rid of useless and heavy scripts and s**t. Can't wait to be able to play Zargabad better than before :3

Can I ask for ETA of the server? At least, is it going to be working today? :D

It should be working today, however I just checked the server and they haven't yet performed the upgrade. This was the last message they sent me (last night):


"Hello Jamie,

No problem I can wait to the morning to arrange this. I will try to keep the downtime to minimal.

Regards,
Steven Smith"

oooh, the server is 2,5 times more powerful than my computer, i'm feeling so tiny now...

Anyway, I'll do some stress tests on the arma server, just to know what we're actually dealing with
