Connection Issues:

Post by Surreal » Tue Nov 12, 2019 10:04 pm

Hello,

If you were a member of the community having trouble connecting to the server recently, please try again now.

You should try to connect via server.ls-rp.com:7777.

If this does not work, please try connecting directly via the new IP by using 149.56.69.39:7777.

You may need to close and re-open your SA-MP client in order for the above server addresses to function properly.

The server.ls-rp.com:7777 address will eventually work for everybody once the IP updates, so ensure that this is what you use long-term.

NOTE:
Downloaded models are exclusive to server IP in your Documents\GTA San Andreas User Files\SAMP\cache, so I recommend copying the current server folder (149.56.123.148.7777) and naming it 149.56.69.39:7777 so that you do not have to download the models again.

OR

Download this file (the current cache) and extract the folder to Documents\GTA San Andreas User Files\SAMP\cache.

Thank you!

You may be facing connection issues again, and we're aware of it.

It's not an issue that we can immediately resolve because it's due to a DDOS attack on the server.

We'll keep you updated on this global announcement as necessary.

You can try and connect now. It seems most people are now having more success connecting to the server.

Due to the nature of a DDOS attack, though, this does not mean that the issues are totally resolved.

EDIT: The issue has returned. As stated before: any updates will be posted here.

We're aware that the connection issues have returned, as before, it's not an issue that we can immediately resolve but we're exploring options to get this resolved as quickly as possible.

There seems to be a higher success rate with people connecting to the server, please try on server.ls-rp.com:7777 and see if it's resolved for you.

To clear up the confusion - the downtime is a result of a DDOS attack. We are trying to figure a solution out with our host, though we don't have an ETA when everything will get back to normal just yet.

I've paused premium memberships, so they won't expire during the server downtime.

There also have been accusations and implications that we've had a database breach - we did not have one, your data and passwords are safe and sound.

I have received word that the server is now accessible, but may show as offline on your SA-MP client for some users.

Even if the server shows as down/offline for you, try to connect and you should be let in and able to play.

Naturally, this does not mean that the downtime is completely over. This is just an on-going update.

Cheers.
