The new RAID controller is in place and everything should be back to normal..
Most servers are back online. Only Killing Floor is down.
Due to a faulty RAID-controller, the servers are down since this morning. They will be up next week at the earliest.
Killing Floor recently released a mandatory server update for their summer campaign. In order to update the server you have to ditch the good old hlsdupdatetool and start using steamcmd. Steamcmd requires a steam account, so I created a free one just for this.
Here are some of the steps taken:
- Created a subfolder for the server user, kf-ds
- Downloaded the steamcmd-binary and extracted it into the new folder
- Made a script for updating the server, called kfserver_script, according to the new steamcmd way, in that folder:
login [STEAM_USER] [STEAM_PASSWORD]
app_update 215360 validate
- In the server home folder executed the command
STEAMEXE=steamcmd [SERVER_ROOT]/kf-ds/steam.sh +runscript [SERVER_ROOT]/kf-ds/kfserver_script
Now the server files are downloaded and verified. The binary is still in the System-directory, but they have changed all folder names from lower case to starting with a capital letter.
Starting the server is done using
./ucc-bin server kf-hellride.rom?game=KFmod.KFGameType?VACSecured=true?MaxPlayers=6
If it starts OK, you can use a init.d-wrapper script that starts, stops and updates the server. That’s how we do it, running the server in a separate Screen. There is more info on the changes over at the Killing Floor wiki.
Fixes some problems after the new Pyro update for TF2.
All servers have been updated.
Details about the update are here.
Apparently SourceMod prior to 1.4.2 contains a nasty security bug, so this update is rather important.
All of our servers have been updated, and tf.muppfarmen.se seems to have gotten some fresh gamedata as well.

The servers will be updated shortly.
Official release note is here.
1.6.13 of HLStatsX:CE has been released.
The tf2 servers have been updated.
MYSQL and lighthttpd have been chosen to handle the workload. HLStatsX CE is installed and the server is fully functional again.
The work involving tf2.muppfarmen.se and mumble2.muppfarmen.se is progressing.
The server is now a minimal Debian Squeeze running as a XEN appliance. The next step is to set up a http server and a MySQL server for web and database duties.
mumble2.muppfarmen.se is up and running as of now.
tf2.muppfarmen.se is up, but the HLStatsX CE engine is not up yet, since we haven’t set up the database and web portions yet.
