Server Reboot

Hey all,

I rebooted the server due to some updates that had to be run. Everything should be back up and running.

Thanks,
Kimojuno.

Server Rebooted

Well then,

I had to restart the server today (due to issues not involving the planned upgrade). The upgrade itself was to take place later this week, on Wednesday, but since I had to restart the server anyway I took care of those upgrades at the same time. My apologizes for the unplanned downtime. Nothing should be affected and everything should be in perfect operation. Again, my apologies. The website, game, the bot, and the webclient are once again running.

Total downtime: 17 minutes.

Server Updates – Next Week

Hey all,

Next week the server will be rebooted for maintenance. I am planning this for Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017. The downtime should be around 30 minutes through one hour, but may last a little longer. This will include the NewHopeMUSH game, bot, and website.

On another note, the game and website was also updated yesterday. No downtime was required for that.

Thank you,
Kimojuno.

Server Reboot

Hello all,

A few minutes ago, there was a hardware fault affecting the physical hardware that NewHopeMUSH’s server is hosted on. This issue was with the physical hardware beyond the scope of our control, and had nothing to do with NewHopeMUSH itself — it did, however, cause the server to shutdown and for us to lose our uptime on both the website and the game. 🙁

I have restarted all services (the website, game, the bot, and the webclient) and, at this time, there should be no further issues. There should be no loss of data but, if anyone notices anything, please alert me as soon as possible (emailing through the ‘contact us’ option on the website is the fastest way to get a response).

Thank you,
Kimojuno.

Server Downtime

Hello all,

For those that had tried to access the site from Saturday until yesterday (Wednesday), the site had some unexpected issues where it was pinging the host servers multiple times per second. As such, I had to request that the host shutdown the server until I could figure out why it was happening, and put a stop to it so that it did not continue to put more stress on their servers.

In any case, the situation has been handled and the problems are no longer occurring. Therefore, the server, website, and game is back online for everyone to access. My apologies for the inconvenience.

Thanks,
Jeffrey.

Planned Server Upgrades

Hello all,

It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? Sorry for that. I’ve been enjoying life and have been, unfortunately, dragged away from the computer lately (real life commitments, etc). As such, I haven’t been able to work on the game as much as I would like. With this said, I will be working on the game again.

In any case, there are some server upgrades that will need to be done. I am scheduling the upgrades for tomorrow. The expected downtime will be between one hour, and an hour and a half, with a 30 minute cushion thrown in for the just-in-case aspects of upgrading.

If anyone needs to reach me during that time, I will be on the IRC server at irc.codealife.com #NewHopeMUSH and can be contacted there. Again, the maximum expected downtime tomorrow is two hours, but the actual upgrade should take less time than that. This downtime will affect both the game and the website.

Thanks,
Kimojuno.

Website Issues

Hey all,

There were some issues with the webserver today. I believe I tracked down the cause and have solved it, but should it happen again, please let me know. In any case, should anyone have any issues, please email me about it or contact me on the game via page or @mail in-game.

Thanks,
Jeffrey.

Server Reboot

Due to a reported security issue, I rebooted the server a few minutes ago. Everything is up and running now. Total downtime was about 5-7 minutes. Everything is up and running now.

Webserver Upgrades

I was in contact with the Bynars about upgrading the computer core, and they suggested switching from Apache to Nginx. So, yesterday morning I switched the NewHopeMUSH webserver to Nginx. So far, the website appears to be much faster and much better than before.

Furthermore, the NewHopeMUSH website now has a CDN (Content Distribution/Delivery Network). This is to increase the page responses from the server to your computer. This makes the website much faster, and provide the results to you much faster.

Finally, NewHopeMUSH now has a Twitter account, @NewHopeMUSH. I also added the Game Maps under the Game tab in the above links.

Thank you,
Jeffrey.

The server has just been upgraded.

Total amount of downtime: <20 minutes. Total amount of manual restart: <20 minutes. Total amount of time: <40 minutes. The server should now be running faster. If you do encounter any issues though, please alert us and let us know. Happy MUSH'ing, Jeffrey. 🙂
