Default Survival Server ok ?

IS the survival server still up and running?

I'm having problems with it (Sunday 8pm). Blocks I built were disappearing about 4 or 5 seconds after build, even after 3 attempts at rebuilding same block. A creeper also smashed a big hole through my newly built small home, and I was frantically trying to patch it up to stop more nasties, but took many attempts to do it.

Then I got kicked off server with a timeout, now I cannot rejoin from about 10 attempts. Timeouts.

The creative server I can get into first try.

Yep, the server had a hiccup at that time. Sounds like a bug for some particular circumstance it didn't account for. I have restarted it.

I've had that a few times.
Usually its after I walk up and interact with a chest or a furnace etc. click on it boom random crash no error message screen. Can't connect to server for a bit afterwards with timeout messages.

I've noticed a few errors showing up in the main server logs recently, although there didn't seem to be anything either in the error messages or a pattern to them following any specific person logging in/out etc that would give an indication as to why. I didn't go correlating the times and searching in the detailed logs for things like block placements / chest access etc.

If you find either of the server's are down and there's no posts / updates in the State of the Server sticky, then fell free to shoot me a pm here on the forum. If I'm around I'll likely see the email notification of receiving a pm sooner than seeing a post on the forum here. Alternatively shoot me a Steam pm if you're on Steam. I don't have the awesome skills of our other Admins, but can restart the server these days if it's crashed.

I just rebooted the server, as I had to move it to a different physical host.
I think it will perform better now. So lets see how that goes.
The minecraft servers will need to be restarted.

I've started up both minecraft servers.

I know at least one background mod hasn't started up properly due to the move, however it's impact should be unseen by players(EDIT: Working now). If any commands are not working, or you're seeing anything strange, please post up in the forum.

I moved it again, as the initial target server was also heavily loaded.
Its got lots of resources now, so see how we go.

unhappy bunny. Nothing to do with our server, more that I finally blagged access to a mac while im away from my home machine for 6 weeks and minecraft.net wont log me in to download through the launcher.

Guess survival will have to survive without me for another day

just hoping its a load issue what with the new patch and all....rather than some OSX failscade since I know nothin about mac and i might just be doin everything wrong

EDIT: turns out indeed that it was patch day crisis with crazy server loads and all.

Having got through that it emerged that 1.3 for Mac was completely screwed.

Having got through that I determine that this Mac is 10.4 and as such will never run multiplayer anyway, im probably gonna just crumble and buy a laptop sometime early next week
