I'm away from home, and I can't access anything. I got an email from Kerplunc saying they fixed all my problems about 1.5 hours ago. Since then, no server log or status image... I also got an email or two about the server being down. Anyone else?
I don't know how much more I can do to get this to work... I've got the game setup to force save data to the hard drive every 5 minutes. The server is scheduled to back up and archive the world folder every three hours.
Today at 21:00 server time a backup was started. It never said backup complete. The previous backup complete was 15:00. I'm guessing that was the last time any world data actually got saved.
At 21:40 it said save completed.
Then, with no crash logged or game saved at 21:45, it up and says:
2011-04-27 21:47:01 [INFO] Starting minecraft server version Beta 1.5_02
So here's what i'm going to do. I'm going to schedule hourly restarts for the server. It's going to be annoying, for those in game. But it will reset the ram usage back to zero on each reboot. It will safely record the game data to the disk. It will also, hopefully, save the data from the admin tool I recently installed.
Looking for alternatives or better methods of saving our work.
