Server Upgrade

Post by Skillz »

I know some of you don't check the news page often, so I'm posting this here.

I just put in an order for a new quad core server to replace the dual core server ut-files.com is rocking right now.

With that being said, some services may be temporarily unavailable while I migrate the old server to the new server.

I intend to host a few game servers on the server, above what I am hosting now, but I don't really wanna manage them so we'll see how that works out.

I know some of the sites aren't working atm, I will get those sorted shortly.

http://unreal.ut-files.com/
http://unrealii.ut-files.com/
http://ut2004.ut-files.com/
http://ut3.ut-files.com/

It's just missing a file in the template, trying to implement a new method of using the same file across all the sites at once.

Hi Skillz,

firstly I wish to sorry to hear about your employment situation and that must take priority for you, it is a difficult climate for anyone to lose their job and I wish you success in finding a new one. I never knew how much you were paying out, and i am sure that was the same for most of us and you deserve a big thank you!

Do you know when you will have the UT3 redirect site up and running again please? I see most of the others are back now but not the UT3 site?

Thanks,

Skillz

The UT3 redirect seems to be working on my end.

Try connecting to the IP directly

http://64.34.170.19/~uz3ut

Your DNS probably hasn't updated yet with the new server's IP address. You can try pinging uz3.ut-files.com it should resolve to 64.34.170.19, if it doesn't then the DNS on your end hasn't updated.

Thanks Skillz,

I get 64.34.170.212 when I ping, I have reset everything my end so I guess it's my ISP who hasn't refreshed? For now I will redirect to the IP as you suggest.

Thanks for your help.

Hello. Few hours earlier today, I have uploaded a ut2.uz2 file (a map) to the UT2k4 redirect and it seems like it is stuck in the ftp, along with a bunch of other people's uz2 files. Some of those files have apparently been uploaded as early as on the 17th of August and they are still sitting on the ftp. These files have not made it to the redirect yet. Any idea of what is going on?

Because I hadn't started the scripts that move the files.

I have done that now, so if anything seems to be broken let me know. I had to edit the scripts for new locations so something might be broken.

Ugh...maybe Im trying to do things a bit too quickly but, I just tried to upload a uz2 file to the UT2k4 redirect and it is giving me this:

[20:37:11] 550 Can't change directory to /uploads/UT2k4_Redirect: No such file or directory
[20:37:11] Transfer failed.

Can you show the entire log? I just logged into the server and uploaded a file to the /UT2k4_Redirect directory.

Do note that I changed the home directory, so it no longer shows "uploads" since you login to the "uploads" directory. So try to change directory to UT2k4_Redirect/ instead.
