OpenSim: Change the domain of your grid
12th Nov, 2015 | Back
No format again. Just keeping notes.
I'm changing my grid from os.liftedpixel.net:9000 to
pixelplanet.online:9000. I got a pretty good deal from Namecheap.com on the renewal for next year ($29.99), and the registration was $9.99. My current host charges $39.99 for a .online renewal, and I saw up to $59.99 as I was shopping around. When registering a new domain the cost of the renewal, not the registration, is where they get you.
Anyway, open up C:\diva-r25084\bin\config-include\MyWorld.ini. Anywhere your old domain is here, change it to the new one. I didn't back up the original, but this file is pretty simple.
Also C:\diva-r25084\bin\Regions\RegionConfig.ini. Changed domain on this file too.
In C:\diva-r25084\bin\OpenSim.ini I found one spot to change my domain in SMTP settings.
There were some XML files with the old domain in C:\diva-r25084\bin\DataSnapshot
The reason you have to change this is because OpenSim checks to make sure you're asking for the domain that the grid is associated with. If they don't match, you can't connect. I am currently able to find my region on the map from another grid using pixelplanet.online:9000, but I am not able to complete a teleport. I tried from Spellscape and OS Grid, both gave the same generic auth failed message.
UPDATE ALL YOUR DOCUMENTATION Thankfully I don't have much yet, just that one blog post about how to connect. And a few profiles online. I already updated my Twitter (@hipixelplanet). I'm not sure what I will need to do with my OpenSimWorld beacon, but I'll figure it out.
Had to update the Pixel Planet website in a few places, including some links. I also had to update some stuff on the Wifi page.
Try and connect
Removed the old info
tried putting in the new info
Restarted Firestorm Tried again, still getting the error. SMACK SELF IN HEAD, GRID IS OFFLINE DUH I TURNED IT OFF TO DO THIS UPDATE
Start up OpenSim and try again. Beautiful.
Putting in the grid url works fine.
Wifi works and it has the right grid info.
I was able to log in just fine. Tried teleporting out to another grid and back, successful. I tried connecting using my OS Grid and Spellscape accounts, no issues.
I will need to get in touch with Sean E and Maria K so I can update my domain with them. Top | Back
