This is great, thanks! The original files are still on the BallerBude server and might be more recent, but more on that next.

Tequila wrote:/dev/random, I also configured a simple Apache VirtualHost for mirror.9k.lv with the document root as my /mirror.9k.lv sg downloads subfolder.

I've put the CNAME in place and it should propagate soon. Long-term solution should involve changing URLs that point to mirror.9k.lv, but this is good in the meantime.

:twisted:

Most of the maps can probably be found elsewhere, but the special sauce were the BallerBude specific mod files doc put up there. The process actually involved rsync'ing via cron, so I guess it'd be good if doc has sftp access if this shall be the new download location.
I'll send him a PM and direct him here, so you can work out the details.

Hi,

apologies for being late. First of all, many thanks to you, random, for your reliable service in the past and for openly discussing this problem and the underlying changes.

Then, thank you, Tequila, for stepping in and providing a replacement service. I've updated the configuration of BB to point to http://download.smokin-guns.org/mirror.9k.lv/smokinguns.

As you offered it, I would like to get a sftp account in case I ever need to add or change a file.

The log went over 2GB. I've cleansed it and restarted the server. Could you try it again and give feedback?

Good to hear that, I was surprised to see your server being down for the last 2 days (but while still having the ballerbude.smokin-guns.org hostname resolving to the correct IP).
I would have sent you a PM if it was some longer downtime without any notifications.

Have a nice evening and keep rockin' !

Good news everyone, Baller Bude is back! :twisted:. Its new address is 5.1.80.234:27960. The XLRSTATS webpages are not yet up again, but stats should be already collected. In the next days, I will post some more infos.

Best regards and thanks to @spi,

Update regarding the xlrstats webpage of BB: with the unintentional migration from php5 to php7, the mysql extension of PHP is no longer available. Therefore, I am forced to rewrite the inc_mysql.php of xlrstats (v2) and my first attempt at this task failed today.

While I now know that the mysql extension was already deprecated in php5, I curse everyone who thinks giving up backward compatibility is OK.

Damn, why didn't I receive any notifications in my email. It's not even in my spam folder. Whatever...

Cool! Now updating the DNS entries would be a nice thing, namely:
Code: Select all
$ host bb.smokin-guns.org
bb.smokin-guns.org is an alias for ballerbude.smokin-guns.org.
ballerbude.smokin-guns.org has address 212.65.13.87

Right now, it still resolves to the old IP address.

That's PHP right there, sorry about that. You'll see, the new API is way better and safer to use. And honestly, we all knew the old API was junk.

After a failed attempt to modify XLRSTATS to support the mysqli interface of PHP7, I brought back the PHP5 mysql interface by following this article. This means, the Baller Bude stats are back. Also, I contacted Tequila again asking him to update the IPs of the subdomains ballerbude.smokin-guns.org and bb.smokin-guns.org.

I also would like to thank @spi and Michael of kms-hosting for providing a new home for Baller Bude free of charge.

Finally, I would like to congratulate Low Prio, the second human player I am aware of, crossing the threshold of more than 100000 kills on Baller Bude rising to the rank of a Smokin' Guns Legend.
