I messed up my Technic Solder server or so I thought. What really happened is that exceeded memory allotment on one of the tables. The right solution under the burdened Solder app would have been to recreate the mod pack and import a fresh branch in to the Technic Platform.
Probably an even better solution would’ve been to move the sqlite database to to a proper mysql database.
However, neither of those options lend themselves to simplicity which is what Technic is supposed to be.
I would like to point out that it took me 4 days to get my Technic Solder server functioning again. This is because I thought to myself “This would be an excellent opportunity to show you how it’s done!” … I am here to tell you that I was fooling myself. Technic Solder is not easy to set up.
They say on their site that you need to be an Advanced Server Admin to do it. The reality is that you don’t. What you have to be good at is reading between the lines. Because whoever made the Getting Started guide simply typed it up off of the top their head and left out the steps they personally used to get the thing going.
As it currently stands the document is messed up. I have created my own version of the steps that I feel is more clear and are the steps I will personally be taking the next time that I have to do this.
Also, because it will feel like a big lump a poo once you’ve done this, I’ve added all of the stuff I use with it and explained that too.
It will be overwhelming to say the least and strongly suggest you have your beverage and stimulants of choice on hand as you will need to take your time and breathe deeply at each step in your journey.
