  1. Original credit @H0zen rewritten in part by myself. Our covenant servers hold lots of user and character data, we need to make sure that is safe and one of the tasks we do is multiple daily backups to an offsite FTP server. This script is ran via cronjob and can be ran as many times a day as you like. You will need to run things like "yum install ftp" for the ftp part and have zip installed. Make sure you change the parts suck as yourbackupfilename, servername, MySQL/FTP details, the password on the zip file and the folder path "remotefolder" in the FTP transfer section. #!/bin/sh # Archive & file variables ARCHIVE=yourbackupfilename`date +"%F"` OLDARCHIVE=yourbackupfilename-`date --date '-5 days' +"%F"` FILE=servername-Realmd_`date +"%F"` FILE0=servername-ZERO-Chars_`date +"%F"` FILE1=servername-ONE-Chars_`date +"%F"` FILE2=servername-TWO-Chars_`date +"%F"` # MySQL variables DBSERVER= REALMD_DATABASE=realmd CHARACTERSS_ZERO_DATABASE=characters-classic_servername CHARACTERSS_ONE_DATABASE=characters-tbc_servername CHARACTERSS_TWO_DATABASE=characters-wotlk_servername USER=rootuser PASS=rootpassword # FTP transfer on demand connection & login details FTP_USER=ftpuser FTP_PASS=ftppass FTP_HOST=ftphostname # Remove previous .zip files if multiple daily backups are being ran echo "Checking and removing as needed old .zip files locally." rm -f $ARCHIVE.zip rm -f $OLDARCHIVE.zip # Dump MySQL database in .sql files into /root echo "Dumping .sql files to /root" mysqldump --opt --user=${USER} --password=${PASS} ${REALMD_DATABASE} > ${FILE}.sql mysqldump --opt --user=${USER} --password=${PASS} ${CHARACTERSS_ZERO_DATABASE} > ${FILE0}.sql mysqldump --opt --user=${USER} --password=${PASS} ${CHARACTERSS_ONE_DATABASE} > ${FILE1}.sql mysqldump --opt --user=${USER} --password=${PASS} ${CHARACTERSS_TWO_DATABASE} > ${FILE2}.sql echo ".sql files have been dumped to /root." # Zip dumped MySQL .sql files and password the zip file echo "Zipping dumped .sql files." zip -e -P backupfilepassword $ARCHIVE.zip $FILE.sql $FILE0.sql ${FILE1}.sql ${FILE2}.sql # Show the user the result echo "${ARCHIVE}.zip was created!" # Move the file via ftp to remote NAS echo "Initiating FTP transfer on demand." ftp -n $FTP_HOST <<END_SCRIPT quote USER $FTP_USER quote PASS $FTP_PASS cd remotefolder/remotefolder binary delete $OLDARCHIVE.zip put $ARCHIVE.zip quit END_SCRIPT # FTP transfer on demand ends # Tidy up files in the /root folder rm -f /root/*.sql echo "Clearing dumped local .sql files."

    AiPlayerbot.RandomBotAutoCreate = 0 does not seem to be working. Every time I start my server ~450 bots are created. Was this the intention? Am I looking at the wrong setting? Also, is it possible for me to create characters myself and use them as bots when logged on a different character?

      Hi, playerbots its very outdated and buggy in it's current form. Also these questions would be better for a forum topic then my profiles status feed ;)

  3. Changed Status to Unconfirmed Changed Assigned to Necrovoice Changed Implemented Version to Unset Changed Milestone to Unset Changed Priority to New
  4. Have you tried extracting the map files on windows and copying them over? They are both the same files extracted, if that is an option for you.
  5. Hi, There is a bug tracker - https://www.getmangos.eu/bug-tracker/
  6. @mtp1032this would be better posted in the help forum then a comment.
  7. No problem, and you add accounts through the mangosd console, you can type help to see a list of commands or look at this page -
  8. Only thing I would do is turn down the console logging level as which is a setting in the .conf file, probably don't need it on at all and can set it to 0.
  9. Hi, When you say auto builder do you mean easy build? Which wiki are you following? This is the official wiki -
  10. This topic has a list of current and reported known bugs within MaNGOS and will be updated by the team regularly. Linux MaNGOS Zero - CMakeFileList for ExtractionTools will not automatically copy these files from 'Extractor_Binaries' folder (One and Two does the copy but in two different ways) MoveMapGen.sh offmesh.txt mmap_excluded.txt Windows EasyBuild - Doesn't actually accept folder path with spaces in it. (i.e. "C:\Path to Mangos\Mangos" doesn't work, "C:\Path_To_Mangos\Mangos" does work).
  11. That is the .exe file, you should have a .log file we can read in the same folder?
  12. Closing this topic as no reply from the original poster. If anyone else has issues please make a topic
  13. Hi, Sorry for the late reply, will see if I can find someone to reply to this
