tl;dr - wiped, all content, accounts and files were destroyed. Please re-register.
Few days ago Sapphire called me to tell me that the website is down.
So I gave it a look and "down" is not the precise definiton.
The machine was frozen, couldn't connect to it and it didn't respond to pings.
If all those failed, the next station is the machine console panel on the hosting company website.
As far as the hosting website could tell me - the machine is up and running.
Those kind of stuff can happen, especially in a VPS so I've decided to press the restart button.
The next thing it showed was, "Restarting..." and so it did.. for 30h+.
After a long conversation which the most of it was yelling, it ended with the following email:
A "Critical Failure". It took me a hour to count the damage was done and another 40 hours to recover what I could.
At last, I've finished setting up the website and forum and took the chance to order a VPS with higher specs.
I can assure one thing, it won't happen again.
Currently we have 2 machines, one for the website and one for the game.
We've purchased a FTP Server (Cloud storage) that is unrelated to the companies we use today to store hourly backups.
So the worst case scenario that might happen is if Europe will be nuked, we'll purchase new servers in an other continent and restore backups of 1 hour rollback top.
We are sorry for the pain and are happy that everything is back to normal,
EDIT: Also, profile pictures on the website are dead.
Thanks for playing,
