On-Demand Servers

Our servers are now split into two groups: 24/7 servers and on-demand servers. Most are 24/7 servers and are unchanged, but some of the servers that are private or hardly used are now on-demand servers. That means they are turned off most of the time, but anyone with a WSID can log into WyeSoft and turn them on, whenever they like. They can be turned on from the server list page. They will shut down automatically when they have been empty for 15-30 minutes (or they can be shut down manually by VIP Members).

The reason for this is it means the servers that don't get used much won't be using up any resources at all, unless they are actually in use. That means I can bring back a lot of the private and less popular servers that we've had to shut down over the years, and also I can install a lot of new servers, without overloading the server machines.

So far, these are the on-demand servers:
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Counter-Strike: Source
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
Left 4 Dead 2

The rest are still 24/7 servers.

First resurrected server: Killing Floor :) Turn it on from the server list. Hoping to get a Killing Floor 2 server running too.
