Database flip and server move

Postby weasel on Mon Sep 15, 2008 9:44 pm

We've been running on dual servers for a while (save/load was still on the old server, everything else moved to the new server) but I'm doing the changeover tonight. I'm guessing if you're lucky you might get a few locked file/access errors briefly, or you might see some levels of yours disappear for a few minutes. Other weirdness may be abound. Not to worry though. All will be well.

As of 9:30PM PST the process has engaged and may take a few hours. :science:

As of 11:30PM PST the process is almost done. :toot:

As of 11:52PM PST the transfer completed but the other requisite changes caused some "designID=0" save bugs; :doh: I reverted to the original copy and am looking into it. Things should still be working fine; keep designing!

As of 12:04PM PST I've given up on what I can do, I've passed the details off to pacifist and I'm going to bed. :sigh:

4:00PM PST starting up again, might see the occasional glitch. :pseudo:

6:00PM PST new server is throwing me wacky errors. Very plausible that it is all my fault. Even compiled a special version of the game just for testing but still no go. Will try again tomorrow. :(

7:00AM PST Still working :(

So this isn't going to affect our membership status that we paid :10bux: for, right?

Nope, no affect on your membership status at all. This is simply us finishing up a move from one host to the other; I'm announcing so that if you get some odd saving/loading glitches at specific times it's probably us tinkering with things. :)

They shouldn't be, nope. We have a process to keep everythign syncronized, they just might become 'invisible' or inaccessible for a few minutes while we do the swap over.

Kay thanks for answering my "noob" question. I'm just a little kid, so I don't know about this stuff. Anyway, may I ask an out of topic question? Is there an age limit to joining the forums (eg. 13 and above)?
