    I see you

  2. Sorry about this, it will not be coming back online: https://jrnetwork.net/news/gservers/arkse/goodbye-and-good-riddance-ark-r631/
  3. Due to many issues with the ARK server software, server usage and the constant hand holding ARK requires I am sad to announce we have discontinued ARK for other future projects. As a team we want to provide you good gaming servers that run correctly without us having to intervene and fix things all the time. We run linux servers and ARK's server does not work well with linux and it won't ever due to the way Wildcard is. I'm sorry that we have to close ARK like this but it's not worth the amount of money we are putting in for hosting the servers. Expect different servers to take over ARK!
  4. Due to continued issues with ARK and multiple servers we are removing two of the ARK servers and we will only be managing one from now on. This has been a long drawn out decision but due to ARK been ever so heavy on our system resources when not in use it's not worth keeping them all going. Valguero will continue to operate / update / receive support but effective immediately we are shutting down the other two servers. Just a note to people who want to run ARK servers. Don't they are a pain in the arse and totally not worth it. We hope you understand that this decision is to bring newer servers to JR instead of just keeping a broken server cluster bogging us down.
  5. If they are not compatible with spigot they will not work on multiplayer 90% of the mods were not multiplayer variants
  6. A lot if not all of these mods are client side only or forge plugins which are not compatible with our servers. You need to look at plugins that are spigot compatible for us to install. You can find these on spigotmc.com Changing to forge is basically building an entire new server.
  7. until

    JR's TF2 server (Casual) Will get an EXP boost for all users playing on it by 50% and a JR Cash boost by 50 % also for the day of the event. Get to the top of the player ranks by joining us tomorrow! For more info on JR Cash and EXP check out:
  8. How is your situation going now? Feeling more comfortable?
  9. It's great to have you on the team @N3RV3. If people are not aware @N3RV3 is in charge in creating events with the community whether its group meet ups or events with rewards. I dont have any time to do this so it will be good for us to have a dedicated person. I'm glad to have selected @N3RV3 for this, expect brilliant things. I'm up for any events that you the community want and I'll be sure to join in on everything that I can, when I'm not working.
  10. I have now readded the configs and the servers should now be coming up as normal now, I have reverted the map backup on the servers and they should now have everything working again.
  11. Hey man how are you ?

      I see you are in now enjoy :)

  12. I have updated the script to resolve an issue with dates. Tested recovery in live environment, everything is working correctly.
  13. Do you have a Linux ARK server that after updating mods it wipes the map ? Do you need a reliable backup solution? Don't delay, use JR's backup solution today! STOP, BEFORE YOU CONTINUE TO READ ENSURE YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE A DEDICATED / VPS SERVER. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT THESE MEAN / ARE THEN TURN AWAY AND DONT ATTEMPT INSTALL. No but seriously... ARK can be crap in the way it updates mods which can cause at times map wipes. This has gotten to the stage where I'm so pissed off I was very close to close down all ARK servers and say fuck this. ARK at random times on linux decides to randomly wipe the map without any trace / logs of the issue. I have found it seems to be any time a mod update goes through. 7x's out of 10 this can cause a wipe and there is no fix... Apart from the recovery script I have just created which we are currently using on JR to ensure things are backed up. I'm publishing this so other ARK server owners can have a reliable backup / archive and recovery method. I have tested this on a production environment and all is working smoothly, your experience may differ. PLEASE ENSURE YOU TEST! This script does the following: Creates backups of maps (dependent on cron job time of recovery.sh script) Auto deletion of backups after reaching certain amount Creates a separate archive of maps (use the dailycleanarchive.sh script as a daily cron job to ensure this archive doesn't get too big) Recovers to the latest backup if the script detects that your servers map file has dropped below the filesize of your latest backup - the tolerance. Uses a tolerance variable to ensure that a backup doesn't auto recover if the map file gets smaller due to culling of dinos / removal of structures. Kills your server to reinstall the map. To install: Ensure you are using a linux host and that you have full root access Download the rar file in this post, extract it to a folder on your server. Ensure you chmod +x both files. for example chmod +x recovery.sh Edit the following variables to match your server: #ARK Recovery DIR arkrecover="/srv/daemon-data/ARKRecovery" #SERVER REF - USED FOR SVR DIR (NAME OF SERVER FOLDER GENERALLY) svrref="da4aaa1b-0ce9-46d2-bd60-5f599cc089ae" #SERVER MAP DIRECTORY svrdir="/srv/daemon-data/$svrref/ShooterGame/Saved/SavedArks" #Map filename for backup file="Valguero_P.ark" #Name of backup - will auto add y/m/d and time backupname="Valguero" #Amount of File backups in days to store at one time backupamount=10 logname="da4aaa1b.txt" #Add fault tolerance as variance may be produced due to normal ARK saving / culling of dinos #THIS IS CALCULATED IN BYTES. 15024000 = Slightly more than 15 mb. IF YOU HAVE A SMALLER MAP THIS MAY NEED TO BE EDITED TO ENSURE CORRECT RECOVERY. #ENSURE TOLERANCE IS SET TO LESS THAN ACTUAL MAP SIZE OTHERWISE THIS COULD CAUSE A RECOVERY. tolerance=15024000 Ensure that you set the script to kill your server before map restoration, currently the script uses a docker kill command. If you don't use docker you will need to kill your server via killing the process or using a more graceful method by removing the docker kill command in the script. This is on line 83 Add a start line after line 88. Please note that this isn't required for my servers as if our servers get killed they will auto start pretty rapidly. If you use pterodactyl for ark, this will not need to be added. Create a cron job that will run recovery.sh every 5 - 10 minutes. This ensures that the file is been checked and that it is auto backing up, if it detects the main map file has gone below the threshold (backup filesize - tolerance) the system will auto recover the map file Create a cron job that will run dailycleanarchive.sh every day at a suitable time. This file ensures your archive is cleaned up every day and you also have 7 days (configurable) of backups. Please note if you change the ARKRecover directory, you will also have to update the arkrecover directory in the dailycleanarchive.sh otherwise it will not auto clean. If you do need help integrating this script please post below I have no problem to help users. But please note I will not be helping users that do not have a dedicated or VPS server running ARK, this is a script that will not work for you. I or JR will not be responsible in anyway for loosing ARK maps / incorrect recovery, especially due to misconfiguration. This is a script that we use at JR and it works. We can not be held responsible if it doesn't work, it is in your own interest to test the script before using on a production environment. If this script has helped you please donate to JR / me to ensure the continued updating of this script. https://donate.jrnetwork.net Latest_Recovery.rar
