New Servers!


Tank

Recommended Posts

We've just completed a migration to our shiny new servers. This is the biggest hardware upgrade we've ever had.

 

Search Re-Enabled

We've re-enabled native search for all our members. This also re-enables search-related functions, such as "Find all Posts" in member profiles.

 

Sites Unavailable

All of the GTA Network is now on the new server infrastructure, however it may take up to 48 hours for the majority of people to see the new servers. Those that are still on the old infrastructure will see a "Service temporarily unavailable" error, but be assured the switch will happen automatically when your ISP or local PC updates it's DNS cache.

 

There are a few ways to speed this process up yourself:

  • If you put your computer to sleep instead of shutting it down, try restarting it and then start a new browser session.
  • Go to your browser options and clear your cache.
  • If you are behind a router, reboot it.
  • If you are on windows, open a command prompt and run the following command:
    ipconfig /flushdns

     

  • If all of the above fails, consider changing your name servers to OpenDNS. We manually force update all OpenDNS servers to show our new IPs as soon as we make DNS changes.
Forum Issues

We are aware of a few forum issues which were caused by a hardware failure on an old server. The faulty server caused permanent damage to the DB, however we decided the issues were too small to justify restoring the database from an old backup. The issues we are aware of are:

  • Gaming Chat disappeared (Fixed)
  • Waddy's member account has disappeared (Fixed)
If you experience any other issues, please let us know on this thread. Thanks!

 

29th Jan UPDATE - Possible DNS Issue Resolved

We've received reports that many people are still unable to access the new servers using their default ISP name servers, including a fellow staff member.

 

These people will either see a "Temporarily unavailable" error or their connection to any of the sites will time out. We believe we've identified the cause and fixed it. It may take a number of days for this change to take affect.

Well thats good to hear. I thought the forums went down again for some sh*tty reason and it was going to take 2 weeks to fix.

 

 

NEX IS V2! WOOOOO

Thank you Tank, after about four months of no search, I finally realize how much I love this feature. inlove.gif

Also, I heard that Waddy's account is not fixed yet. Will it be back or not?

 

Thank you very much for everything you do! icon14.gificon14.gif

It's back. It turns out his account was the only one that got nuked. Poor, poor Waddy.

It's amazing! icon14.gif

I can finally see his posts / PMs, etc. Thanks a lot Tank, although...

 

 

 

...we have two Waddy's! Seems like the other account hasn't been used since 15 Dec. What will happen with the new one?

 

Enjoii, not only those topics are unpinned. A lot of others, including my newbie guide. sad.gif

Thanks Tank! Glad everyone has search functionality again. The forums seem a lot speedier now, as well.

 

Any chance we'll lose the 1 post per minute rule now? Pwetty Pwease? tounge.gif

This.

 

Nice work Tank. Agree with the last few posts. The speed is fantastic.

Waddy's member account has disappeared (Fixed)

 

 

 

If you experience any other issues, please let us know on this thread. Thanks!

Is it possible to fix the bug which makes it impossible to link to certain posts/anchors in a topic where the old Waddy posted ? An example of this is the link in my signature, it links to the wrong page, but if you go 1 page forward and paste the link in your browser, it will correctly jump to the placed anchor.

 

 

Sorry, I see It was fixed. The link changed so I needed to update my signature

Speaking of Waddy's two accounts:

 

His old says last acitivity 15 Dec 2010: http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showuser=38454

But when you go to find posts, last one shows 30 Dec 2010 http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?act=Sea...sult_type=posts

According to Tank, the new server is using SSDs, so hence the speed increase.

 

@Enjoii: See here.

 

@miromiro: Why are you so obsessed with Waddy and being able to see his posts? Do you stalk him or something?

 

@Andy: His account was lost because the database got messed up, so it's probably connected to that.

These two topics are no longer pinned in Gaming Chat, they were before the downtime.

 

Gaming Review Index

 

Gaming Topics Index

 

Also the rules topic for Gaming Chat has been unpinned as well, same thing with almost all the pinned topics in most other Lounge subforums.

Same goes for the rules in D&D.

 

I'm guessing that all pinned topics that were locked suddenly got unpinned.

You solved it! rah.gif

 

Also,

 

Some topics were unpinned because they're always near the top anyway due to their popularity.

Highly, highly doubt that.

Nice to see the transition's gone relatively smooth.

Any idea as to why am getting a little bit of downtime whilst loading each page up on the forum? It seemed to be fine yesterday, but today am having like a 10 second wait for each page load.

You could try clearing the cache.

I don't have icons, the media.gtanet.com is where the images are hosted; I guess the DNS hasn't changed yet? I cleared my cache and everything.
