Hello. When I first start up PyScrabble, it searches for public servers. So when I click on register, I put in a name and password, and every time I get a box saying "Error: Could not connect to server". What am I doing wrong? I really cant figure this out, it seems like it should be pretty straight forward. If I am missing something, could someone please help me?
I am also having trouble registering. I am using eeebuntu with a strict firewall. Do I need to open a port?
somebody please help:-(
It seems the public servers are down. You'll have to run your own server it seems. (If you want others on the Internet be able to connect to your server and you are behind a home router, remember to open up a TCP port for the computer that is running the server). Sorry I couldn't be more help.
I have the same issue so am unable to play a great game.
I am a Linux new user running Maverick Meerkat
Can anyone assist me please ?
I'm getting the same message. Is the server still down?
It was up, and then it was down again. I'm about 80% done with moving my server infrastructure from Xen to ESXi, and I'll probably finish that today. As soon as that is finished, I'll put the PYScrabble server's hard disk into a physical machine and virtualize it onto the ESXi server too. I'm planning on finishing all that this afternoon.
The last of my production servers has been migrated to ESXi.
I've booted the pyscrabble server (it's not publicly available yet); I'm running updates on it and compacting the pyscrabble database (it was 100GB - yikes!). With any luck, we'll be up and running tomorrow.
I can't get the database on the old pyscrabble server to behave yet, so I'm building a new server from scratch. First attempt tonight was with Slackware 13.1 64-bit. Some of the required programs, like ZODB and Nevow, don't seem to like the 64-bit environment. I'm downloading the Slackware 32-bit ISO now, and I'll try again tomorrow night. Progress!
Is the server working now? I tried to register and log in, but there was no confirmation of the registration on Pyscrabble.califorest.com
And when I log in, what do I put in the Hostname section, it wants a port number? What number should I use, assuming I enter Pyscrabble.califorest.com as hostname? Or should it be something different?
Yes, it is working. It was being a little quirky, as the database had grown to 20GB. I packed it tonight, so the server is a lot more responsive now.
