Server Down - Update

I was hoping to post some good news this morning, but unfortunately it's the opposite. Some of the issues are still present even after fixing various lost settings and performing rollbacks.

My only option now is to reinstall the server and piece it back to together using fresh copies of various files etc. That's going to take some time, in fact I doubt I'll get it all done in a day. So... unfortunately it looks like the server will be down for at least another day, maybe even two. 

I'll update here as soon as I have some more news.

Update - 4th Oct:

I'm still working on getting things stable again. I won't give an ETA for now though as I'm dealing with a couple of complicated issues.

If you see the server up then you can try to connect, it may or may not be whitelisted depending on what I'm doing, please bear in mind though that the world might be rolled back when I'm done so changes you make could be lost.

Update - 12th Oct:

Apologies for the delay in posting an update, as you've probably guessed things haven't gone as well as I'd hoped. I'll post a more detailed update soon but for now I'll just say that, sadly, the server won't be coming back up in it's previous form. I'm weighing up some options though so watch this space.

Server Down

The server has been down for around 2-3 hours, I am looking into it but at the moment am unable to reach the server at all (even the console). I'll post an update here when I know more.

Update 19:10 - It seems that the server (the actual physical computer) has been relocated to another location in London, and that for some reason I didn't receive an advanced notification like I should have. I'm trying to find out when things will be up and running again. 

Update 20:45 - The hosting company have brought the server back up, but, I can only access the console. I'm working on why the client can't connect so hopefully it won't be too long now.

Update 21:55 - It seems some settings were lost and when the server was brought back up (automatically) it created some problems. It's unlikely the server will back up today as a rollback of the worlds is needed and I'm still seeing some very odd behaviour (including client connection issues).

Update 22:50 - Last update of the night...

I'll update here again tomorrow, hopefully with an estimate of when I expect to have the server back to normal. 

A client update will be required as I'll be using it to flush out some settings, you can update as soon as it's available though and don't need to wait until the server is back up.
