Re: [0.4.14] LinuxGaming2 - A Server for Builders

Update: I spent the better part of yesterday working through the problem that has been crashing LG lately. I think I've got it resolved but I'm not 100% sure. Time will tell.

Re: [0.4.14] LinuxGaming2 - A Server for Builders

Heads up: After last night's backup the same bug as last time came back. Same patch procedure as last time; the MT server is working again. I'm not sure of the exact trigger yet, it may take more crashes for a pattern to appear. For now the MT server is up and chugging along. I may try rebooting th...

Re: [0.4.14] LinuxGaming2 - A Server for Builders

Heads-up: After last night's backup, the MT server would crash whenever players tried to log on. I was able to find the problem and fixed it so LG is up and running steady again.

24/7minetester,

Re: [0.4.14] LinuxGaming2 - A Server for Builders

Festus1965,

Ah-ha, got it.

Sadly, I'm more familiar with adding IP ranges to the server's firewall than I ever wanted to be.

Thanks again for the advice. ;)

Re: [0.4.14] LinuxGaming2 - A Server for Builders

Thanks Festus1965 for the advice. I don't quite yet grasp what you wrote. From what I can gather, you are recommending the IRC channel that is piped into the game to be set to "invisible" and have another, visible, channel that no one really uses but is there as bait for spammers? And then...

Re: [0.4.14] LinuxGaming2 - A Server for Builders

Thanks for the update 24/7minetester.

It's frustrating but there isn't much that can be done about these hit-and-run spammers. Small channels are probably ripe targets.

Re: [0.4.14] LinuxGaming2 - A Server for Builders

LazyJ, the IRC server has been under spam flood attacks as of early this morning. Once per hour, a user joins, immediately spams explicit language and advertises their own server, and then quits. IRC logs are available upon request. Additionally, it seems that the activity is nesting in the channel...

Re: [0.4.14] LinuxGaming2 - A Server for Builders

Update: The migration from old VPS hardware to new VPS hardware is complete. MT is running smooth. For the techies, the OS has been upgraded from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. The MT server is still 0.4.14 and still chugging smoothly along. (I don't know when I'll be able to finish the code...

Re: [0.4.14] LinuxGaming2 - A Server for Builders

Heads up: In preparation for the maintenance work by the VPS company, I'm going to shut LG down, make a backup before the VPS company takes things offline to do their maintenance. I don't know how long all this will take. The backup will take at least a half hour. From there it will be how ever lon...

Re: [0.4.14] LinuxGaming2 - A Server for Builders

Heads up: The VPS company is upgrading hardware on their end and will have take customers offline to do the work. I have next Friday off (2021_03_19) so I'll try to get LG's turn scheduled for sometime then.

24/7minetester, thanks for the info. I'll look into it.

Re: [0.4.14] LinuxGaming2 - A Server for Builders

Ain't too shabby there, greeter ;) When I was a kid, we'd visit an old boy who lived up in the foot hills of Colorado in an A-frame that he built himself. It was just him and his Chihuahua "Julie" so the place was small, secluded in amongst the trees. A quiet place. He's since long passed ...

Re: [0.4.14] LinuxGaming2 - A Server for Builders

Now that is different! Literally thinking outside of the (typical) box (build). Reminds me of A-frame houses that were trendy back in the 80's. Another out-of-the-ordinary and extreme house style. Some examples: https://wowowhome.com/architecture/black-a-frame-house-renovation-and-extension-by-dmva/...
