NEW IP - ck here!!

Post  skeeteR on Thu May 30, 2013 8:44 pm

We will have our new server and IP tomorrow

I dont have an exact time yet on when its going down.  But just check here for any info.

The only thing that will change will be the IP,  so go ahead and put this info in your favorties if you use dayzcommander.
Reserved IP: 50.97.49.66
Reserved Port: 3255


Use This, we wont be moving anymore!





184.173.146.22 
port 3034 





----------------------------------------------------



Last weekends downtime was totally unavoidable.

Todays server downtime was caused by some server hardware needing replaced.  After talking with our host, and taking into consideration how old our server is.  We are going to be getting a brand new server  /bigsmile .  Our scheduled date for transfer is June 16th.

At sometime during the day on June 16th, we are scheduled to have everything moved onto the new server.  

The only bad part is we will have a new IP.  But nothing else will change.  In fact, if it wasn't for the IP change, it would be a complete unnoticed transfer.  The server name will stay the same,  all you need to do is put Hunters Den in the search filter on June 16th, and it will find the new server for you.  

I can promise zero data loss.  The host will handle everything, but I will also completely backup our database onto my computer.  Just incase we need it (but we wont).  So everyone's progress/gear will be double protected and back'd up.

There will be a 10 minute warning before the shutdown, and it shouldnt take any longer than a normal restart.  However after the server shuts down,  you will need to use the new IP @ that time.


**Incase anyone wants to search for the server by using the IP, I've included it below.  Very Happy
Reserved IP: 50.97.49.66
Reserved Port: 3255

(if you have dayz commander, goto "favorites" and enter this info @ the top.  That way on the 16th you will alrdy have the server info rdy to go.)

We will be using our current IP for now, right up until June 16th.

If anything changes, I'll let you all know asap

no problem mike, and lol i deleted the empties, was going to delete the other ones. but i'm afraid i'll delete the one that your using.

i have a few there, you said you cant access some. so the ones you want to keep, put some trash tin cans in them. then i'll delete all the tents in that area that DO NOT have trash tin cans

if you do that, then i wont be afraid i'm deleting a good tent. pirat

I'm still really excited for this. I have a running log of problems I'm interested in seeing if this will fix. I'm cautiously optimistic! What a Face What a Face What a Face

ITS ALMOST THE 16TH!!  /happy


can't wait to get our new server guys.  brand spanking new hardware FTW


only bad thing is we will get a new IP, which isn't really bad.  since we will have a new IP, our gametracker rank will be reset.  so dont be alarmed when you see it around 2800-3000.  It wont take long to get it back to our normal rank.  (probably about a week)



I'll be afking in the lobby every chance I get, since the gametracker gives the rank solely on population.  more avg players = rank

for a totally private server, I've always been very proud of our rank.  its always around 450-800.  and its been as low as 240.  Public servers will always do better, because they have no limit on who can join.  We can only pull players from a exclusive list of members.  okay i'm done rambling......gotta goto work

Hopefully we're fully down now due to the migration.

looks like we are down because of another ddos attack

thank our childish gaming community for this kind of stuff.  even though the recent large attacks would be from another hosting company, most likely .  takes alot of bandwith (or 1 insane botnet) to take down this many server.  but my point is, we are the victims when hosting companies do battle.  

the migration will hopefully be what saves us from being down too long, still trying to get some information.

hope everyone knows this is out of my hands at the moment,  although i will keep my promise to make changes if things dont get any better.  have a few ideas that would solve this.  tired of wearing this big red ddos target.


i'll be back with more information soon.

a ddos attack using a program to put it into a more "visual" display

I'm with you guys, when server is down I'm always very unhappy. Soon as I get any news (big or small) I'll be here letting everyone know.

Also, I wont let this stuff keep happening. I wanted to give the new server/IP a chance. But if things continue like this.......you can count on me making big changes to stop this from happening again.

words from host :

"Woke up to every single Dallas and Washington DC server being DDoS attacked, they are all down trying to get them up now."


still no eta on when we will be moved. but like i thought, this problem will receive ALOT of attention. simply because of how many servers are down.

i'll keep you guys updated with any information I get.

192.31.185.217:3221   <-----use this Very Happy


I manually moved us to a new datacenter. its in Los Angeles, CA it has ddos protection. if we like it we will stay there. ddos protection adds to the ping. if we dont like it we still have our reserved washington IP to move back too if we are not digging the ddos protection.

One way to look at it is this, we are giving up a little ping to have our server guaranteed to be up ALL THE TIME.

But dont worry,  if we dont like it.  I'll put us back in Washington, DC our new IP is still there are waiting if we do not like this.

we can try this out and see,  right now its better than what we have (which is no server, because its attacked every week)

I want everyone to know,  we are just giving this a try.  If we are not happy we'll go back to the DC datacenter.  But all DC servers will be down for next 24 hours.  So we have nothing to lose by trying this.

With this datacenter, we will not have any downtime from ddos attacks.  Only thing is it adds some ping to each players normal ping.

But trust me,  the way arma works (with server/client communication),  you guys can't tell ingame if you have 100 or 300 ping.  If you couldnt see your ping level.....you would not even know it was higher.  It added about 30 to my normal ping.  But this server is actually running very well.  The server FPS is staying maxed out.

So just try it and report any concerns here.

thnx guys

bump for ppl to see new IP

keep an eye on this thread.  we will be switching back to washington, DC in the morning.

too many problems related to this setup.  not worth the tradeoff for ddos protection.

thanks guys

still switching back to Washington datacenter.

but its looking like it will be tomrrw (hopefully no longer).  I'm waiting on a new/fresh server.  All the attacks have things delayed some.  I'm digging the protection from ddos attacks,  but I miss our low pings.

So keep an eye on this thread for when we switch back (because the IP will change)


thnx
