General Discussion / Ultima Six Online Process Monitor
« on: February 26, 2020, 02:29:35 AM »
I am currently working on a process monitor for the cloud VM that runs the server these days. Moving to the cloud had decreased downtime DRAMATICALLY but there are still instances where the ultima server crashes and the VM does not relaunch the service. Further more since the server does not run locally I dont know about it unless its reported or I cant log in.

In the coming days I will deploy a new program to monitor the ultima six online server health and automatically relaunch the server in cases of fatal error or close. I hope this will bring down time to near 0. I will report back when it's deployed

In a few moments i'm going to move all saves and game data to a cloud virtual machine with 99% uptime.

We will experiment with this for a few days to asses stability. This should mitigate issues when my computer explodes or there is a power outage or the server shuts down when I'm on vacation. Please report any issues in this thread.

General Discussion / Server up and down at the moment

Something strange is happening at the moment and the server application is crashing here and there. If anyone was online a few hours ago and experienced anything strange in game please let me know. I will be investigating.

General Discussion / SERVER STATUS
« on: December 03, 2016, 04:05:00 PM »
quickest way to report an outage is emailing server_status@thezogcabal.com
UPDATE: An IP address is no longer needed to connect to the game server.
Code: [Select]
server.thezogcabal.com now points directly to the U6O server.
What this means: you will no longer have to update your dns.txt to connect to the server when it "goes down". Does this mean the server will not go down? No! Internet outtages can still happen in my area and cause my local IP address to change. But you will not have to do anything other than let me know on the boards or via  server_status@thezogcabal.com
Once notified I will update the address that the url points to and you will be good to go.[/glow]

General Discussion / Updates: New Message forums

The root site: thezogcabal.com was the target of several malicious attacks this week which resulted in the suspension of the hosting account and all subdomains including ultimasixonline.

The actions needed to secure this site included a purging of all email accounts and updating all plugins from word press to this message forum.

The message board was so out of date that step by step upgrades were not compatible and the backup database would not be compatible with the current build. Therefore I'm sorry to say the message board will state over from the ground up and require new registration.
