The host rebooted last night. I"m trying to bring the server up now, but it's throwing an error I will need to investigate.

The problem is that I'm on the other side of the country right now, dealing with the death of my mother in law. If I don't get this fixed in the next 15 minutes, it's going to have to wait until after I deal with obligations.

server is up. Please let me know if there are issues, but I'll only be paying the loosest of attention.

Hello,

the server tells me, that I´m not registered.
If I try to, get the message:
Training faction is null. Contact an admin immediately.

So, what can I do?
Spartans, what is your Profession?

Nothing. As per Tuco's post, don't log in.

I'm sure someone will post to the forum once the server is up/running.

What about those who don't read the forum? Their accounts are going to be wiped?

Maybe we can take the opportunity for a reset? Or a soft reset? Keep the map but wipe the accounts?

shit. The server went down in the middle of a backup. I can restore a backup from a couple days ago.

Server is coming back up. I'm on a chromebook with no MM client right now. I will need someone to test and report back.

Nastyogre Reporting.

Server is up. Campaign and hangar successfully loaded. No scary errors.

I'm sorry for your family's loss Spork. I know my wife was close to my mother and when my mother passed it affected her too. Supporting me was hard with her own feelings. You even considering supporting this place while you work through things shows your dedication and everyone should be appreciative.

I logged in successfully.

However, got another ominous message:

Tick skipped. Errors occured

I believe I found and deleted the offending files. I am in a position to keep an eye on logs for the next tick, which hopefully will not be skipped

The tick appears to have completed correctly. Can someone please verify?

Appears to be functional. I am logged in and I see the campaign etc. I did notice a command when I right click "Purchase factory." Is that something that appear just because I have mod powers? I seem to recall that had to do with certain elements of the economy we don't use, but I don't remember seeing the option.

Tuco, please check the settings. If I need to restore the campaignconfig from the backup, that's easy, but will require a reboot and will need to happen when I'm actually in the hotel room, which is not frequently.

Looking fine, thank you!

Hosting company had to do an emergency reboot. Server is back up and accepting connections.
