I joined the server yesterday and now I can't log in. I can connect to the server but when I enter my username and password, it won't let me in. I have checked I am entering the right things. my username is Lukas Bastonne if that helps.

Is that even legal to store any DB in a temp folder? :shock:
I've heard that in some countries they cut off your hand if you do this. :geek:

I do not have to create any logs (and I do not want to waste disk space on it) and it is my decision where I want to store my files (and I forgot to adjust that path which is now done). It might be different if there was a contract.

What about my ships etc? Can I recapture them? Was everyone's account deleted or just mine?

If you bought he ship at spawn, buy a new one with the same name and add "admin" to the crew. If you bought it from a trader, give me the name of he ship, the color and the name of the layout or an exact description. Also give me a list of all additional systems, the scrap (ship + character), missiles, drones and crew members. I will give the things to you as soon as possible (but that might be in 8h or so).

Lost the database again because of a typo while restoring a ship.
The server did spam this exception but everybody was able to play except the player who triggered it:

Code: Select all

I had to kill the process. On restart of the server:

I found the cause: It was my start script which deleted some directory. Unfortunately, I changed the launcher directory to that without realizing it and the DB was deleted on every launch since this morning. This is now fixed.

There is now a backup solution implemented so that we should no longer loose any progress greater than 5 minutes (autosave interval). It does an off-site backup every full minute which means the backup should even survive the complete destruction of the server.
