Alex- I have someone I know who is willing to host the servers. They have been experimenting with running the servers and are having some trouble trying to get it working. As I understand it, it's something to do with the game requiring email (I should mention that I'm totally OK with ditching the email aspect of it as I feel that people can keep up with updates through the subreddit).
Would you mind checking your reddit messages so you can give us a hand? :s
His username is cmdrd, I've asked him to send you a reddit message with what the problem is. If reddit doesnt work for you im sure we can find a different way of communication.
I can run a server pretty easily, I'm confident enough that with a computer I should be able to follow the instructions using the programs listed.
The problem is, I'm attempting to use one online (using a rentable online vps) because my home internet is terrible, something I'm not all together familiar with.
Do you think you could assist me with running a server online? What website should I rent from? Obviously I can't use the same programs as in your instructions to install ruby or use the same mysql management, as I'm not actually in possession of the copmuter/server and able to install thing easily.
When it comes to anything to do with servers or online anything I'm virtually clueless. Would you be willing to help? :\
For example, let's say I rented a server off of Dreamhost. What steps would I take to install ruby on the rented server and run Main.rb? Or rather, how do I integrate the PE: O instructions towards my home computer to a VPS setting?
Sorry for the cluelessness, this is *not* my forte >.<
Alexandre- you there? This is thesuzerain from reddit, zeta/omicron (this is my pokecommunity account).
The guy that was hosting the server for zeta/omicron recently abandoned me, and I have no clue how to run one. I can probably figure it out, but I have no kind of server so I was going to rent one online.
I don't know what kind of online server will run your program but do you think https://www.linode.com/ will work? Its well within my price range and seems to support ruby and is linux-based, which is what my former server-host-friend-guy was using.
