Another server move incoming
« on: October 21, 2018, 11:13:29 am »

Hi all.

Not that you care, but the Gang Garrison services (forums, website, mumble, lobby, rewards, anything I forgot) will move to a new server with a new IP address. As a result, there will be a brief downtime for the forums (should definitely be < 1 hour) some time in the near future, and everything else (lobby server, rewards) will be wonky for a bit until all DNS caches have accepted the new IP. In fact we already had a downtime of ~45 minutes earlier today because of this move, when I copied the server contents to the new system.

The new server should be pretty much the same as the old one (same hosting company, same specs except a bit less storage), but it's from a new product lineup and is 60% cheaper than the old one, saving me ~100 Eur per year :yaymoney:.

New server is running well by now, but we're not on it yet. I moved a few domains already, but I'm saving ganggarrison.com for last because it's the most complicated (basically, all others don't have any user-dynamic content so I don't have to worry about using any maintainance mode and pulling a copy of all files/databases at exactly the right time)

And we have moved. The downtime ended up being 18 minutes instead of the optimistic 5 that I put onto the maintenance page because I forgot a couple of things when preparing my scripts, but overall it worked fine. If you notice any issues, please reply here.

Ah, missing a python package, fixed. Thanks for reporting.
