[PSA] Why we were down for 4+ hours last night!

Post by madscientist032 on 3/27/2014, 8:40 am

Last night, the server.jar file that we use for the SMP server broke without warning, causing us to crash hard and lock up the server for almost 5 hours last night. However, we were not the only server affected last night. Thousands of other MCPC+ and Spigot-based servers (including our sister server Oasis Pixelmon) were affected with this same issue, and we were nearly dead in the water without any way for it to be fixed.

With that being said, I want to personally thank MrZeldaOoTFan (a regular player on Oasis Pixelmon) for helping me understand why we kept crashing last night, as well as giving me the links to the 1.7.2 Spigot hotfix which we used here on SMP. Last night, that hotfix was installed and since then everything has been running pretty smoothly. Again, this was something out of my control and I apologize for last night's unexpected downtime.

However, I will say that I took the opportunity last night to do a complete server backup. This includes our map, our plugins, and all player data. Nothing was lost (except for a couple hours of uptime).

Again, I'm really sorry about this, but it was completely out of my control. I apologize for any inconvenience.
