So I just found out that user sign up is still not working I’m working hard on getting it fixed but that may not be till Sunday some time. I will let you know!!!
So this weekend sucked *ss, I got my server up and running and then my router decided to not forward static ports. I had to reset the router. It now has no QoS, Guest Network, Open Network, Remote Access. But streaming is working but all users log ins have been lost and need to be re-done Here. The page will not check that the remote server is up. I did not add that before some if anyone signed up this weekend it may not have worked. I have not decided what to do about the router issue, I need to go back to pfsense I think to keep everything working but that will cost at a lot. So for now I will just try to keep what I have working. I do have a spare Machine though Maybe I can install pfsense on that.. But we will see.
Well after my big fuck up I’m starting to move in the right direction on getting things working again all user log ins were lost. Everyone has to sign up again. Right now streaming is not 100% I do not think having the user database on another machine is the best but it does work for now. So if you want to sign up again you can. I will make sure not to loose them again.. Since I did keep the last ones for over 5 years.
Plex is being a dick. It always picks the nic with out inter net to try to connect. but that fix will come soon enough.
I crashed mysql and thought I had it backed up but the back up failed. I have lost all new user log in, and had a massive roll back to before I moved servers. This weekend I will be working to get it all back but all users will have to sign up again. There is no chance of geting this working before this weekend.. But as soon as I can I will spam facebook and what not to get everyone signed up again..
So most of my server parts are here and soon the rest will be on the way. Most people will not see many changes till I move my FTP server. Below is a check list of what needs to be done when all the parts get here.
- Move Apache Server
- Move MYSQL server
- Move Raid Card and Hard Drives
- Move FTP server to a low power machine
- Install personal server items for my home
- Office Space my old machine
- Build a new user database for https and ftps users with password reset and shared log ins
- Build a new AWESOME server rack
- Get a new rack mount UPS
- Build a new pfsense
All of this does cost a lot so if you want to donate that would be great.
My server is finally coming to the end of it’s life(5 years running). I have been shopping around and I think I can build one for about $600.00 – $800.00. If I can use my raid card again. If that does not work in the new system I’m looking about about $1000.00+ I have never done this in my time of hosting for everyone but If anyone wants to donate to my server fund that would rock!!!!
The new server will mean faster streaming for everyone, More storage, And some new cool things down the line when I get time. The button is below if you have time and money to donate that would help off set the cost of updating, power and internet.
Well My servers have been stable for some time I’m still working on getting a new one because the load is so high. I have not had much time to look into converting mkv’s to mp4’s for streaming but I’m still looking into that. I need to farm out some of the work to machines on my network. But First I need to work and stacking the code and a database to manage the work load I think. But I guess time will tell.
My server is down. I’m not at it so I can not make any attempts to if it for a few days but I fear it will mean getting a new server to fix this. When I return plan is see if I can get it in safe mode and keep it running till the parts for the new server get here.
Right now I’m looking to update my server. But it costs a lot since I need a new case, power supply, ssd, ram and mother board. The case I have is 100% full+. I’m still debating if I should get a new raid card and if I do get a new card what card to get since I need a 8 port card that can expand to 16 port.
I moved my show posting to a page you need to sing up to see. I will not spam you with anything just you can see the shows and all the episodes I have this will take some time to get working better but when it’s done it should work good.
Starting this season all shows will be in 720p the site I use is a bit slow but it’s working good. For now the shows will be downloaded in .mkv then converted to .mp4 this is a bit slow since the computer they are being converted on is older. I was going to buy a slim PC to replace that machine but now I’m looking to get a more powerful pc to speed that up but that is after the server update.
As of about 7:00pm pst today 07/31/2015 my streaming server has been down. I’m working on the repair now. I have the new router in hand but there is a bit of work to get it up and running. I bought the router a bit ago to move over to it. I did not know my current ‘router’ was going to fail.
I will comment on this post when I have it up and running. It should not be to long. I’m going to get the stuff for the streaming server set up and move over to the new router.
Sorry about this.
