🚀 About the Server behind Illuna


#21

yes but you said that you want to move all your stuff to the dedicated server. My point was to move just the illuna stuff to a gameserver and keep the tchncs stuff on the kvm. so you can shutdown one kvm and save that money


#22

No. I cannot rent a 30-40€ machine and rent a around 10€ machine for tchncs.de, this is not possible.


#23

Would it be possible to find an IT company to help sponsor Illuna/tchncs.de by providing or partially providing some of the services? I realize this is probably not feasible, but maybe one of the players has connections to a company with an IT infrastructure and/or maybe have an old unused server that would be more powerful than a kvm server on a shared host.

I asked a bunch of companys today but without any success.
The cheapest maybe fitting server i found was:

16G RAM
amd opteron octa core at 2.4GHz
2x2TB HDD
~30€/month

But it would be a hoster i heard bad things about.
Also they wanna force me to a setup fee of 29€ whish would be ~50% of all the money if have.

Beside this, i replaced our NGINX webserver with Caddy today.
The setup is not yet finish - if you find html serving issues / slow downs / speed ups / … .
Please write me a PM.
Caddy is a very cool and modular project written in Golang.

Sounds like a hosting company to avoid. I wish I could help you more. I’ll let you know if I notice anything. With Christmas almost here, I might not be online as much.

Even so, I wish you are all a very Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all :slight_smile: This discussion makes me wonder… I’ll share with my mates at the hackerspace… maybe we could help.


#27

Thanks grand :slight_smile:
Merry christmas to all too :christmas_tree:

I spent several hours yesterday to improve the mailsetup from the illuna server to send for example all system notes to the external system mailbox from tchncs.de - now the awesome netdata project can really show how awesome it is.
Since munin collects every five minutes, netdata works in realtime and is way more precise:

As always, our hoster is already informed and still willing to help - as soon he got a new hostmachine, we will be moved and safe for an amount of time.
'Til then, we have to life with it or find a new dedicated server.

PS: One thing is to note for people who wanna help like @grand:
We cannot take a place as a guest on someone elses server.
This has two main reasons:

  • security for all the users data including forum, cloud and minetest
  • security for our services as i made two times a very sad experience with this until suddenly deletion of all my data

#29

In that case… would the point be to find a suitable machine and give it to illuna ?


#30

Yes, but it is currently impossible for money reason.
A little hope would be the upcoming open server, maybe more players generate more donors.

We will move the the hosters new hostmachine some short time after christmas.


#31

We moved to the new hostmachine yesterday and are the first vserver there.
Should be safe for some months - still hoping we’ll be able to get a dedicated server somewhen.


#32

I noticed last night the server ran very smoothly. :smile:
