Troubleshooting guide April 2015

Mind that after the outage, some changes were made to the .INI files. Your old config might no longer work as expected !) . Compare the changes with your current configuration if required.

Feedback / additional information / corrections can be emailed to Foxx Bode at Gmail.

Last winter OSgrid has been recovered from a big outage, and some bugs in the asset system were being reported. These have been resolved . If things don't completely work as expected, check http://news.osgrid.org and http://www.osgrid.org/index.php/sitestats to check for possible interruptions.

Inworld help is generally available@ LBSA plaza.Offworld, try OSG's new Wikipages.

other handy things to know :

Do NOT run versions below 0.7.6.3, as they contain a vulnerability. Mind that after 8.2 versions, the INI files were adjusted ! There is also an "optional"folder with ini configurations that drastically limit console spew, and fine tune some other settings. (You can copy those and overwrite the existing files in /BIN) if you desire to use them. When 8.4 is released, (2016) all older versions will go obsolete, as there will be a code merge with donated Avination code, which is incompatible with older versions. For news on that release, check this topic or news.osgrid.org

If you are the owner of the awesome NPC danceball by Aine Coaimhe, the permissions for it can be set in the config-include folder, in the Ossl_enable INI file to be exact.  If you don't have one of those danceballs, run to wright plaza or hop to the refugee grid to pick one up. It's without doubt the best Danceball in the metaverse.

If you run into a NAT loopback isssue, and your viewer is on the same machine as the server / regions, you can try the workaround posted here. Mind that other machines in your network will not be able to connect ! Just you, on the machine with this loopback, and outside visitors will be able to visit. This has also been tested and confirmed working over wireless.
