Map and Char Servers Crashed
« on: Mar 16, 2008, 08:13 am »
I went to church today, and when I came home and opened my email, I found reports saying they cannot log into the server. The message they get is Rejected From Server. I also can't get in. So I checked the server logs, and found both map and char servers crashed. I'm new to MySQL, so I'm not sure how to go about the whole thing nor touch anything that might make things worse. What could cause a crash, and how do I resolve this issue?

There is alot of things, too many to really name. The only way to resolve the issue is to find out what what is causing it (There should be an error message)

Well, since I am rather new at this, I have to figure out where to find the error log.

Do you have a test server?  You can try to duplicate that problem and find out what is causing it, it's usually an SvN bug or a custom gone bad ;p

I contacted our host, and they emailed me the likely cause of the map and char server crashes:

guild.c:36: warning: 'guild_castleinfoevent_db' defined but not used
guild.c:387: warning: 'guild_send_xy_timer' defined but not used
guild.c:76: warning: 'guild_sd_check' defined but not used
guild.c:177: warning: 'guild_read_castledb' defined but not used
gmake[1]: *** [obj_sql/guild.o] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/home/shared/serohope/server-files/src/map'
gmake: *** [map_sql] Error 2

Now, all I need to do is to make sense out of the whole thing, never mind putting the server back up again.

That looks like you were trying to (re)compile the server to me, since it has the "Make" command. That shouldn't have crashed the server itself - since it didn't finish 'making' the server  :-\

Well, I did somehow try to make an Update, but when I did so the server was already down. I am not sure if that complicated things, but you did say that it shouldn't have crashed the server itself, so what else could possibly do that? BTW char server is back up, but the map server still hasn't gone back yet.
