Server maintenance November 24th, 2013

Post by mikaelh » Sat Nov 23, 2013 12:10 pm

We will be doing maintenance on the game server between 10:00 and 12:00 UTC on Sunday. There will be some downtime because we are moving to a different host. The game servers will be shutdown at 10:00 UTC, after which all save files will be transferred to the new server. We have reserved two hours for the maintenance but the servers should be up before that.

The IP address of the new server is 37.187.75.24. Our DNS entries will be updated to point to the new address. The server is a dedicated server from and it is located in Gravelines, France (the previous server was in Paris).

Some new bugs may pop up because we are moving from the x86 architecture to amd64. Please report if something is broken after the move.

The maintenance should be over now. We ran into some unexpected problems but they should be fixed now. In particular, houses were generated wrongly in some world map sectors (e.g. west of Bree). We found out that something changed in GCC version 4.6 which breaks the houses. We have downgraded to GCC version 4.5 as a workaround for now. Servers are also compiled as 32-bit to be safe. The server was rolled back to the start of the maintenance so all items should be secure.
