Server will be down for a few days for migration (back up)

Sylverant is a homebrew open source server for Phantasy Star Online. Dreamcast users still play PSO online with this server even today! This is the official forum for both the online game server as well as the open source project itself. Feel free to post and get a gathering started online! We can also show you how to get connected!

Sorry for not giving notice of this earlier, but the server will be down for a few days for migration purposes. I'll update this thread as I have more information.

If he knew how long it would take to get a new host, he would have said so. ;)

So... First update...

I'm in the process of getting a full backup of the data from the server's host. That should hopefully be done in the next few hours (the backup is already made and I'm just waiting on it to download now).

In the mean time, I'll be setting up a machine to temporarily host the server itself. Assuming I'm able to get the backup in the next few hours, I should be able to have the server itself back up tonight or tomorrow.

The website will be down until I am able to migrate to a more permanent server solution.

Got the backup of the server's image running locally... Now I can at least pull the data from the db. :)

So... New update...

The website still isn't up yet, but...

Iselia is, at least for now. So... people should be able to connect as of now, at least as long as they're not using the old DNS trick or Devolution on Wii (i.e, as long as your game is actually trying to connect to "sylverant.net", as PC users should be doing as well as users of the Sylverant PSO Patcher disc).

I can confirm it is up and running. I had to resort to using schthacks dns server to connect with dreamcast.

The DNS Server is now back up for anyone using the DNS trick on applicable versions. You'll have to change your DNS server in your network settings to 138.197.20.130.

Most services are available again.

The only things that I believe are still missing are a few administrative functions (that concern nobody but me), Altimira (which will be easy to fix), and the PPP server for Devolution.

As of today, I think everything is fully back up (including my administrative stuff that was broken before). Still waiting on confirmation that the new Devolution setup works (or for me to go home and test it myself).

After tweaking things ever so slightly (read: I didn't have it working right before), I can now confirm that the new Devolution connection settings on the website work properly. I was able to connect just fine, anyway. :wink:
