The CTF server previously only went back up because i forgot to remove it from the backup script, which started it after the backup was done (and shut it down when the TechEth backup was done, to perform its backup) - the backupscript has been updated to a different backuplocation and CTF was removed.
CTF is way outdated and never became a popular place so we for now decided to shut it down entirely. Sadly, even with solid leave nodes, players suffered low fps in the forest anyway.
TechEth was down a bit longer as i did a mistake in the updated script and the inital backup was a ton of files and took a bit longer in general - next backups should be (hopefully!) quite quick as it is no longer a machine under heavy io load that takes care of our backups.
I personally dislike that we have to go down for backups in the first place, we didn’t need this for a long time with a modern and fast database backend, but now we got this cool webmap that requires a different backend that needs to shutdown in order to backup.
