The server has been up for 15 hours 55 minutes as I type this message, so I guess this was still the ISP’s fault. I need as much details as possible to write some scripts that will handle situations like this:
1) The server was restarting approximately every 30 minutes. Were you able to log in to the server after the restart?
2) Was there any lag while the server was up (between restarts)?
3) @verdi , the lag that you mentioned was after this situation was resolved. Could you give me any details as to what sort of lag there was? i.e. item lag (soulshots not activating, potions not being consumed), net lag (character was unresponsive/you clicked and the char moved after a few seconds, typing in chat didn’t show up instantly).
The most important question is if you were able to play in between restarts, because the server’s hostname couldn’t be resolved (this means that my scripts thought the server had no internet connectivity and were trying to restart the server).
Thanks for the feedback guys.
