Server Migration Update

Hello Commanders,

the server migration (performed mainly by Downlord and Sheeo, many thanks to them for their hard work) has so far been mostly successful, as you have surely noticed.

This morning I fixed some small issues with the updater, which means playing games should work without any problems. There was also a problem with the website that prevented it from fetching leaderboard infos that is fixed for the moment.

There are some issues remaining, the most important ones are:

  • Replays created after the migration are being saved to the wrong location and therefore can’t be downloaded (they are not lost, we simply need to fix the problem and move them to the right location) – Should be fixed for now, but will require some maintenance later
  • The map vault view in the Python Client is not workingFixed
  • The Unit-DB view in the Python Client is not working; use spooky’s DB in the meantimeFixed
  • Some functions of the forum are not workingShould be fixed
  • User Rename tracking is currently not possible; the scripts at app.faforever.com have been retired. A replacement will be available soon.

We will get these issues fixed asap.

Expect FAF to be down next Monday

As you may know, FAF is still running on expensive servers for which Visionik is paying. In order to cut the reliance on a very generous donator, we are going to move to cheaper servers next Monday, 2017-10-09.

The costs for the new servers will be covered by our Patreon income (feel free to become a Patron today!).

Moving about 600G of data and 30 services doesn’t happen within the blink of an eye. While we’ll do our best to keep the downtime as short as possible expect FAF to be down the whole Monday. If you like to receive notifications about status updates, make sure to sign up on faf.statuspage.io.

Meanwhile, don’t forget to participate in Yuri’s tournament today (2017-10-05)!
