Server Troubles: Two Months Later

by Jonah on January 31, 2015

The server problem which was preventing me from uploading Shipyard version 0.8.1a is, apparently, still an issue. I tried again to upload the update today (24 Jan. 2015) and it seems waiting for it to sort itself out isn’t going to help matters. It’s bad enough that this is occurring with a pure bug-fixing update like 0.8.1a, but it also means that I can’t release updates containing new content or entirely new projects. Right now I don’t have a fix for the problem, but I will look into various options.

      I don’t actually own the server myself; if I did, it would probably be easy to fix. However, I use a hosting service which owns the physical server box and handles the lower-level stuff. All I can do is upload files to the server by FTP. When I try to upload the Shipyard update, it appears to work but when it reaches 100%, it sends back an error message and starts back at 0%. I will have to contact the hosting company about the problem as it does not seem fixable from my end. While I appreciate the offer, I’m not sure there’s anything you could do to help.

      I haven’t worked on Shipyard much since the server problems started. Not being able to update has somewhat killed my motivation. Meanwhile, I’ve been working onside projects like that silly tank game I posted a video of last month. My father, who owns our account with the hosting service, is going to contact them so there’s no need to get your brother involved. I fully intend to get back to work on Shipyard once the server stuff is fixed, which should hopefully be fairly soon.
