Title: Multicraft
Post by: Baltazar on January 01, 2013, 11:25:39 pm
Both production an test servers are now being run with Multicraft (http://www.multicraft.org/site/page?view=home), which is just an administrative wrapper for running MC servers.  This has allowed us to have the server periodically save to disk, nightly backups, and nightly restarts.  The restarts will occur 3:30 am PST, and there will be 3 announcements before it occurs.  The backup will occur at 4:00 am PST.  The server will remain online during the backup, but you may notice some lag.  The backup should complete within 5 to 10 minutes.  Another benefit this tool offers is automatic restarts if the server crashes.  This means you will not have to wait for me to notice the server is down, though I have not yet tested if it works properly.
