The hardware running our server has been fairly untouched for quite some time. So we have decided to find replacement hardware to fully allow us to keep the community and server ready for future updates. However, this requires the server to be unavailable for some time while we move everything from databases to server files.
Server has stopped: 1:05: PM GMT+2 (13:05 CEST)
Server has started: 4:04 PM GMT+2 (16:04 CEST)
Date of migration:
Saturday, 21st of September, 11 AM GMT+2 (11:00 CEST). Expect a total downtime up to 6 hours.
2x Intel Xeon E5-2420 v2 Six-Core CPU (12 physical cores in total)
Server up and running again!
The server will be unavailable this Thursday, 5/1-17, starting 1 PM CET (GMT+1). This is a planned maintenance as we will perform a few "under the hood" upgrades for the server. Estimated downtime is set to be between 3-4 hours to allow us to check everything before the server open again to the public.
All servers are now up and running on the new system and control panel
Our Survival server is now up and running, the Industrial server will be available later today. Note: We are not yet fully running on the new control panel which means there will be another downtime, however this will only be around 30-60 minutes in total.
There will be a server maintenance today to allow us to move towards a new system and control panel for all our servers. We have no ETA on when this might be finished. I'll update this thread when we know more.
The new Resource/Mining world (new seed) is now available! New time!
It is time for yet another reset of the Resource/Mining world on our Industrial server, this next weekend, on Sunday 14th of Februrary. next week, on Wednesday 17th of Februrary. The Resource/Mining world reset for our Survival server should happen along with the update towards 1.9 (which is getting closer to a full release!)
Remember to take anything belonging to you. For example chests, quarry etc. that you would like to save before the reset this weekend. As the last Resource/Mining world reset, a complete new seed will be used.
There will be two upcoming downtime this week (during midnight, European time) as our server's ISP will perform a couple of upgrades to improve the quality of their network. This will result in loss of connection towards our server during this time. They plan to carry out the maintenance work at the following time.
All servers are up and running again on the new hard drive!
There will be a planned maintenance tomorrow on our dedicated box to upgrade the current hard drive to a larger and more suitable SSD for continuous operations. With almost the doubled space should allow us to expand the current (and eventually new) worlds with the future upcoming Minecraft updates. All servers will be unavailable during this time.
Everything up and running again! There will be a planned maintenance tomorrow, primarily to update the stability on both servers and to prepare for the change to BungeeCord on our Survival server, which should give an overall performance boost between the different worlds. More about this when the change will go off.
We have also ordered a new SSD drive for our dedicated box, doubled capacity for upcoming world expansions and it will also provide a good stability to the server in general. The change will go off somewhere by the end of this month or in the beginning of September. More about this when we know the exact date.
Finished! Servers are up and running again! A new Resource world for our Industrial Server, Direwolf20 1.6.4 has been added!
Another maintenance is on the way this weekend. Were we will perform a couple of server related updates and move one of our databases for our servers. During this downtime a Resource World reset on our Industrial Server, Direwolf20 1.6.4 will go off. All servers will be unavailable during this time. See the information below:
