All Servers Offline [Back Online]

Postby Arrows73 » Fri Feb 27, 2015 10:46 pm

Dear players,

there seems to be a major hardware problem with our main server. I'll post more updates as soon as possible. I think its a defective RAM, but it could also be a defective harddrive.

Thanks for reading!

Dear players,

I didn't find the cause of the problem but the server is up again. I'm currently doing backups for the very case that the harddrive fails (which is not likely to happen). After that, I'll do a memtest86+ on the RAM to make sure that it's working fine.

The test will take around 12 hours, then the servers should hopefully be online again.

Thanks for reading!

Dear players,

the server will be back online tomorrow around lunch time (European time). I haven't found any problems in the SMART tests (harddrive tests) and I'm currently checking the RAM with memtest86+. I've downloaded a backup of everything, so we're safe.

Thanks for reading!

Dear players,

the harddrive on our server was defective and had to be replaced. I have a MySQL dump of the stats of everyone playing as well as a backup of the player files. The server will be back online until tomorrow evening.

This forum is not affected by the problem.

Thanks for reading!

Dear players,

LiberCraft is back online but the hoster hasn't uploaded a backup of our SAMP server yet, so it's gonna take up to another day for us to be back online. Sorry for the delay! The database + stats were restored already! :)

Sorry for the delay - we will definitely be back online today. The hoster is apparently having problems restoring our backup. If he doesnt finish that by tonight, Ill just reconstruct the server, then the house data of the last days would be lost but everything else would be back (your stats as well, of course).

Dear players,

we will be back online tomorrow morning, in less than 12 hours. Sorry for the delay, the hoster wasn't able to restore our backup. Thus, f.e. the house owners are going to be reset again. Everything else (kills etc) is NOT (!) lost. Just the house data. Thanks for reading!

We are back online! Please re-buy your houses. If you need a refund, please post on the forums and I'll give you your money back.
