Downtime: 15 Sept "16
Good day everyone, I hope you’re all doing well and enjoying your explorations.
The server’s going to be down for possibly a few more hours (or more), as I continue to clear up a few chunks of space, caused by some unnecessary logs. The way PMU currently stores logs isn’t the best, exact replicas of the same files are created which take up incredible space. Needless to say, the chat will break again if we don’t deal with this shortage of space, particularly a long term solution. Additionally, I’m also looking into back ups, as our back up tool crashed and I may resort to creating personal back ups as well as online back ups to multiple servers with different locations on a regular basis. We’ve managed to achieve a fair bit this year, and it would be in our best interests to avoid losing all of that hard work.
We want to avoid another rollback as experienced earlier. Each time the physical machine is restarted (~28 days) to prevent the time from breaking, a bit of data is lost. Primarily because the database is updated on session expiry. Previously, the /saveall command would save offline clients as well, but this has proven to be untrue lately. May also push an update for some features we have in store.
Thank you for your patience.
The server is now back up.
