Master Server Migration + Downtime

Our latest need-to-know information.

Master Server Migration + Downtime

PostAuthor: StackOverflow » Sat Jan 19, 2013 1:34 pm

Just a heads up, the master server will be moving from it's current location in San José to a new datacenter located in Las Vegas, meaning the master server will be offline during this time.

The downtime is expected to last between January 20th, 5:30 AM GMT until January 20th, 6:00 PM GMT.

I will be taking advantage of this downtime to perform some necessary performance optimizations for the master server software as well as the web server.

What does this mean for you?

The serverlist is cached on our web server, which is separate from our master game server for situations like these. This means that the serverlist will remain up, but just won't be updated during that time.

If you are a server hoster, you will likely see a lot of warnings that the server has been disconnected from the master server. This situation will remedy itself once everything is back online. No IP addresses will be changing because of this.

We will let you know when the server migration has been completed. Thanks for the patience. Blue_Happy1

Just checking, but is that supposed to be 5:30 AM to 6:00 AM? I only ask because that 12 and a half hour time window seems odd.

No, this is a physical server migration, hence the prolonged downtime.

When will the server list be cached? I just launched a new server and am bringing it up and down as I make adjustments to the config.txt, I just want to make sure my server is on the cached list for tomorrows outage.

The serverlist is automatically cached, so the cached version will be relevant to the very last second before the master server has been taken offline.

As in: throw the server in the back of your car and start driving? Blue_D'oh
Pity you had to take the weekend, but I guess you have your reasons.
Maps planned: Z-Fighting, Hallway Lite, Chaos Redux, Random Maze, FHQ Infiltration, Greece Push, Dracula's Castle, New York.

I'm sure they rented a u-haul and paid some random hobo to drive it all the way over to wherever the new host is.

That is the original website but it went down, you have to use servers from this website as this is the only place so far that has a master server.
