BZFlag Websites and Services Migration

Post by blast » Sat Jun 09, 2012 12:57 pm

I will be migrating the BZFlag websites and services to a new server this weekend. This will include the list server, forums, main site, and images. The current server is a low specification VPS that has had some stability issues. The new server will be a VM on a shiny new dedicated server that I control. During the migration (and after, if I forget to set something up right ;)), there might be a small amount of service disruption.

Thank you for maintaining the system. I look forward to seeing it back up and in it's glory. :)

How is the migration going on? I currently can only find one server when searching.

The migration was completed yesterday. As far as 2.4 servers go, there are 125 servers reporting to the new list, and 19 still reporting to the old list (and those 19 probably need to be restarted to get the new IP for the list). If you're using BZFlag 2.0.x, then all of servers have to be restarted to get the new IP, and I only see one that has been restarted since the changeover. Easy solution there is to upgrade to BZFlag 2.4. So everything on my end is done and working.

Thank you for the fast answer, I found and installed 2.4 package (Ubuntu), now it works.
