Re: Daily Worlds Backups Script

But in the past I had problems to extract archives from my server on my Desktop PC, when using gzip or bzip2. The problem did not occur as long as the file 'map.sqlite' was smaller than 2GB. I have to look deeper... Was it Windows? Or using a different filesystem? Some operating systems and/or file...

Re: Daily Worlds Backups Script

You can backup your world without shutting it down entirely. All you need to do is run something like this: #!/bin/sh for db in map players sauth; do sqlite3 $db.sqlite ".timeout 1000" ".backup $db-backup.sqlite" done And then moving the backup files to a different location, of course. Note: this a...

Re: Daily Worlds Backups Script

# backup the directory using tar and gzip tar czf $dest/$archive_file $dir_to_backup gzip is no good idea. If your 'map.sqlite' is larger than 2 GB, gzip fails (as on my server) I only use "tar -cf ..."" Is Bzip a better option? I have that available even though I don't think the map.sqlite will ge...

Daily Worlds Backups Script

Here's a simple shell script I'm putting together for a daily backup of the "worlds" directory on my (private) server. Does anyone see a potential problem with it?

Re: Bastides of 13th C. Dutchy of Aquitane in France

This bastide was started by one of my family and she asked me to do the church for her a while ago. This is what I came up with a while ago. I give them a chest of raw materials, basically the same as given in the charter, for each normal building. I then let them check out my sample building schema...
