Hey guys, I currently run 5+ TTT servers (Massive MySQL communications from each) and a few other servers I’m working on, all running through a MANAGED VPS from a viable GPS (Managed means I have give up direct access to the unit as well as files outside of the server setup for a VERY easy to manipulate automated system. This includes NOT having access to manipulate SteamCMD. It have proved to be very beneficial for my needs, but its time to evolve.
What I want is switch to a UNmanaged machine, and to have as many servers runningfrom a singlular GMod Server directory as possible. Though GMod specific case-studies were scare and detail lacking, I am confident it is possible, but not sure to what extent. My goal is to not only have one area to update for my TTT servers, but to be able to localize my database (Which is not MySQL).
So my questions are, can anyone assert whether or not:
a) Multiple instances with Garrysmod in its current build with SteamPipe IS possible (Not just ‘mounting’, I know that will work if the directory is shared)
b) If 4-6 TTT servers could share sv.db, meaning no more MySQL (and no more issues with MySQL not connecting efficiently enough, as it rarely will drop connections)
c) If a+b are both ‘yes’, if it would also be possible to share the same GMod directory for a server of another gamemode? With my development plans, this would be VERY beneficial
I feel like I’m going out on a stretch here, but I haven’t found anything that has directly implied this cannot be done. Maybe you guys can save me dropping $$ on a doomed project.
