Wiki for a Minetest server

(Noob) Required reading:

  • Rules - to tell you what is acceptable
  • disclaimer - important disclaimer wich allows me to do what i wish
  • rules for building - tells you how to build in an acceptable way
  • news - tells you about what has went on
  • reports - tells you how to report stuff to people
  • /go - tells you how to go around the server in style


Note: This page is now superseeded by http://56i.duckdns.org/downtime.

inevitably, the server will go down for some time. this is due to it being hosted on a crappy webbook. this means you may spend hours waiting to come back.

NOTABLE events of downtime are recorded and reasons placed here:

date of beginning date/time of end length name of event reason
2021-05-27 2021-06-07 17:xx ~1 week test-main migration i operated a test server. work on building a new server began, and was made public at monday. the server is no longer public, due to large amounts of noobs (3)
2021-06-08 2021-06-10 3 days apache error somethign went wrong with apache, and i didnt know what. the wiki was down, as XAMPP wouldn't start or shutdown properly.
2021-06-09 2021-06-11 4 days advtrains error i ran out of disk space, so tried to move the world to a drive. but i operated the server during the move, making new files. then, i lost the map.sqlite, so had to use a copy on my main computer. then, i tried starting it up, but got an advtrains error. the error is now fixed, but the map.sqlite is still missing. read more here
2021-06-13 2021-06-19 6 days disintrest downtime the admin loses intrest in minetest for a few days, to focus on programming and blogging.

non-notable events

do not do anything to lag MY server. if you do, you will end up with some… creative punishments.

some events are simply non-notable, events wich cannot be recorded, as they are not shameful:

  • server crashes, from errors
  • “admin leave” downtime, when the admin has to leave (school (8:00-16:00), and sleep (23:00-07:00)).
  • short downtime to enable mods

instead, look out for these before putting it on the table, as it hints towards a catastrophie:

  • long, unplanned downtime
  • the admin starts calling himself stupid a lot more (happened with the migration failure)
  • wordpress posts being filled with greif
