Forum is back online


#1

I woke up to a message from @Lemoncreme saying the forum was down. I checked, it was. Long story short, the forum backups filled up the hard-drive on the server, and broke the forum software.

After an hour of poking around I fixed it. and now we’re back! :owl:


#2

I was wondering what this mysterious 504 message was… 404 was nowhere to be found.


#3

Yeah, I wish it could have displayed a better error message. 504 is basically the same thing as a 404.


#4

Did the entire Disqus forums engine suddenly faint or was it the Moonman specific server?


#5

Ben’s server ran out of storage.


#6

Wow, really? I thought there was barely any data on this forum. Our community is tiny…


#7

Yeah I’ll have to look into it more closely if it happens again. There was at least 24 backups of size 500Mb … so 12 gb in backups alone. I reduced that to 12 for now, all backups are sent to Amazon S3 anyway.

The server specs were very minimal: 30Gb hard drive and 1 Gb ram, but i’ve now increased that a little bit.

But you’re right, the data should be really small … even with all the gifs I upload.


#8

Strange. Data error? Junk data? Maybe?


#9

Could be. Tbh I much prefer to spend time on gamedev rather than sysadmin, and I may even upgrade to paid support for the forum if I have problems in the future. Which means more moonman for you . :crazy:

It’s kind of weird… calling the game Moonman when we know it’s going to be something different in the future. People who go looking at old posts when the game is a few years old will be REALLY confused. Not that that’s a bad thing huehue
