rrb in an e-mail to me wrote:It turns out both crashes were power outages.  I never noticed the first time because the only visible effect was the missing GCCG server.  I checked the logs this time around and see that there was a reboot a couple days ago too.  The GCCG server doesn't automatically start on reboot. I will make it into a service when I get a minute so that it will in future.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
--rrb.
Translation for the less technical: the cause has been tracked down and found: a power outage (both times) at rrb's home (i.e. no electricity). It was overlooked because rrb has most things restart automatically after such. He'll soon make sure GCCG does too. :)

I can't type anything in the main or little side-window.

any ideas as to what the problem might be? [or problem be me?  :) ]


Did you ever got an answer to this question?
I am facing the same problem right now.
I used a name that already was given away so I try to change that name.
If you try again /newuser <your_name> with another name than this message is shown: You are already chosen your initianal user account. Use /su <your_name> instead. But that doesn't work either.

So if you can help me out I would be very grateful!
(Hope you still read this after two years posting your own question!)

Ehm.. yes; see the first three or so post right below his opening post.

I've meanwhile worked this problem out with Kees via e-mail. For others facing it: it seems the easiest way to get out of this predicament is to close GCCG, find the file username, and simply delete it. (By default it is in C:\.gccg\Metw -- notice the '.' in there.) Then you can start GCCG again and use /newuser afresh. :)

Back :)

Post by Gwaihir » Sun Nov 05, 2006 4:11 pm

I was thrown and kept out too (for about an hour?), but am back in now as are two others. Looks like one user wasn't affected at all, so I guess the server itself hasn't been down. Anyways, whatever disturbed us, it looks like the worst of it is over now. :)

Major server issue with GCCG

Post by rrb » Sun Nov 19, 2006 2:28 am

Sorry to say folks I have a mjor issue with the GCCG server right now. &nbsp;A few hours ago I created a little problem for myself by upgrading my firewall. &nbsp;This SHOULD have been an innocuous change, but my IP address changed during the process and that upset the gccg server. &nbsp;Right now I cannot get the server to start, at all, anywhere. :( &nbsp;I tried moving it onto a faster machine and it won't start there. Nor will it start on the machine it originally lived on.

If anyone knows how to reach Tommi, I could really use his help right now. &nbsp;Or if anyone knows where to look for this error...

...usual stuff...
Security manager: allow open dir: ./save/Metw/users-db
Total of 0 cards loaded.
Unhandled exception: attempt to create string with null pointer
Done.
...and then it cycles again and again.

Any help appreciated.

GCCG server issue resolved

Post by rrb » Sun Nov 19, 2006 2:45 am

OK, having posted in a panic I calmed down and went back and fiddled around a bit. &nbsp;I found and fixed the problem (quite silly actually) and the GCCG server is back up.

Hallo Bernd,

does your internet provider disconnect you once per week (or per day) and it happens friday ~16h00? &nbsp;

It kicked me some minutes ago and I can't comeback, although my connection seems to be doing ok.
