Server Migrated

vap3Riley a posted Jun 26, 14
The server migration is complete. Keep in mind things may need to be optimized for performance still so consider this a beta stage.

Please make sure you are joining the server using the address thestonepubmc.com, if you are connecting using a regular IP then it will try to connect to the old server. If you are still having problems try:

1. If Windows 7: Click Start Menu and type ipconfig /flushdns, then hit enter
2. If Windows 7 or 8: Press the windows key on your keyboard and the letter R at the same time to bring up the Run prompt, then type ipconfig /flushdns, and hit enter.
3. If you are on a Mac and know how to bring up a terminal window: follow this article.
4. Finally, if all of those don't work: connect using

If you have questions or issues please reply to this post.
br0wnbr0th4 Hi, I'm new to your forums as well as your server. I'd like to try it out. I'm on the search for new servers to play on ...

Server Migration Time

vap3Riley a posted Jun 26, 14
Server Migration is happening 6/26 @ some time between 8am-10am central standard time.

Please make sure you are joining using thestonepubmc.com as the address. The server will be down estimated 30-90 minutes during that time.
PureMtnWater oh and Lara an I were discussing the option of enchantments, we agree its more fun to do it the old fashoned way!!! so w ...
PureMtnWater thanks for the updates, we really appreciate all your hard work and expense.. you make this server worth playing on!!
In order to comply with Mojang's EULA changes the permissions on The Stone Pub server have been changed drastically. 

I apologize to all that have donated but there are no longer any paid ranks such as VIP, Super, and Epic. You can thank Mojang for that. I appreciate the donations you have made and it has helped tremendously to pay for the server rental fees. To make it clear to some individuals; I am not offering refunds, the money was a donation and it has already been spent towards the server. If you threaten me or the server I will likely be banning you.

The good news is that there are now purchasable (with in-game money) commands on the server where anyone can rent or buy commands to give themselves more abilities. This is a positive perk for the people that did not donate, but may be disappointing for those who have donated for rank. I plan on having more and more commands available to rent/buy as we go, it should make things more interesting and make the in-game economy better. In the future there may be a ranking system where you earn a rank as you go and earn money and experience for each rank up.

You can purchase commands in-game by typing /skill list.

I have received everything but the chassis/case for the new server box for the migration. I will have everything on Wednesday 6/25 and start building and configuring everything. I hope to have everything up and running and migrated before the weekend.

For those interested in the specs of the new server:
CPU: AMD FX-4300 4-Core 3.8Ghz 8mb Cache 95w
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB PC3-12800 (2x8gb, may upgrade later to 32gb) (8-10gb dedicated to Minecraft server most likely)
Storage: 2x 120GB PNY SATAIII SSD's (one for OS, one for Minecraft server) (If not fast enough, will create RAMDisk and upgrade to 32gb ram)
Motherboard: MSI (A cheaper micro-ATX model)
PSU: 450w Power Supply (with around 300w used)
Cooling: 4x 120mm high airflow case fans, Cooler Master Nepton 140XL water cooling closed loop for CPU
Generic Ultra case, no optical drive, no monitor/mouse/keyboard

Old server:
CPU: Intel Xeon W3530 2.8Ghz Quad w/ HT
RAM: 48GB (24gb dedicated to Minecraft server, 16gb dedicated to RAMDisk for world files)
Storage: 2x1tb 7200rpm RAID

Server Migration

vap3Riley a posted Jun 20, 14
I will be building a new server machine to run The Stone Pub minecraft server. I plan on migrating it the week of 6/23-6/29 depending on shipping times.

What this means to you:
  • Nothing will be lost
  • Approximately 30m-2h downtime
  • As long as you connect using thestonepubmc.com in Minecraft then you won't have to change anything.
  • Better performance (predicted)

This is all due to the EULA changes and avoiding paying a monthly server rental fee. Once we comply with the EULA there will be minimal donations, I would never be able to break-even with a rental cost.

If you haven't already, please vote here to state how you would like the server player permissions standardized.

Please read the news about the EULA changes Mojang is making on Minecraft, see the forums:
