WTF is Going On?

UPDATE and REQUEST: Testing the config to move hosts. Can people connect to surfrock66.yourhda.com to see if it's working? Assume this is not the map we'll keep, it's just a test setup. Expect mega lag...this is coming from my house :o

Also, it appears everyone is a noob when they join, this is temporarily by design. I need to figure out how I can add users and change their groups in a way more efficient than McMyAdmin. I'm collecting data.

FINAL UPDATE: People signing in momentarily gave me what I need. I think the config is all set. Can people PLEASE connect to surfrock66.yourhda.com to see if it's playable (I know it's lag...it's my residential internet) and if there's any bugs. If not...VPS here we come.

OK REALLY LAST UPDATE: Is playing on this really so bad? It's running out of my house...play on the test server for a day or 2 and at different times. I wanna see how running the server out of my house plays...I assume it'll suck, but it seems good so far. If it's playable for 24 hours...I'd much rather host it here for FREE than pay anyone else to host it :)

Short answer? I don't know! We keep crashing the server...it's random plugins. Each time I disable the offender plugin...it crashes again with a different one. Problem is, these are really severe crashes...the whole virtual machine needs a reboot, which I have to submit a ticket for and wait for the host. Hence all the downtime.

McMyadmin just updated as well...it's possible that's the offender itself. Most people use a permissions plugin that reads a config file, then distributes groups and permissions...McMyAdmin has it's own permissions and groups thing...which then EXPORTS the config file to the plugin for other plugins to read. I think THAT is the broken process. The last plugin I disabled is the new permission manager, PermissionsBukkit. There's actually an old one we used to use (Permissions) but it's been discontinued, but it still kind of worked. Everyone says "move to PermissionsBukkit!" so we did...but now we constantly crash.

Conclusion...I'm working on it. A lot of this is waiting for the host. If this goes on for much longer...we'll move to someone NOT using mcmyadmin, which IMHO over complicates things. SORRY!
