Offline: ISP issue

Post by The Amethyst Dragon on Tue Mar 20, 2012 1:37 am

My internet service just cut out on me. Cable company says it's on their end and will be fixed by morning.

Time for some server maintenance, I guess. Doing a full virus scan at the moment, then onto backing up the servervault (character files), database backup, and anything else I feel like.

Typing on a phone (even on my Droid X) is very slow compared to a real, full sized computer keyboard.

Internet service is back. Server still offline while I run updates to Windows XP and load database and servervault backups to the web server for safekeeping.

Database and servervault back ups.... you really do spoil us with the things you do. I'm not sure I can see many other PW owners doing the same thing for their players. This is one of the many reasons you have a great and loyal playerbase. I don't think it's said often enough, thankyou to The Amethyst Dragon for everything you do.

Thanks, RustyDios. I'm sure there's other server admins out there that do the same thing. It's just something you need to do every once in a while. What would happen if the servervault got corrupted or something and all of your characters were just gone? This way, at least the most lost is a couple weeks of progress (I don't backup the files every day).

Anyway, the game is back up and running, with a new direct connect IP address: 68.3.54.71:5121
