#10 SQL Database Connections w/Sourcemod & DigitalOcea in Q/A Help

Here are a few ways
- Limit MySQL access with iptables to certain IPs
- Put the servers in a VPN, bind MySQL to the VPN address. (Has DO launched their VPC solution yet?7)
- Set up tunnels to the server hosting the MySQL server
- Restrict the MySQL user to a certain IP: 'foobar'@'' (I like this one the least, since your mysql server is still reachable from the outside and bound to

#8 SQL Database Connections w/Sourcemod & DigitalOcea in Q/A Help

MySQL 1045 is an authentication error. So your sourcemod can connect to MySQL server, it just doesn't have the right credentials. You probably didn't set up the database user correctly in MySQL (Thermite's post has the right commands) or made a typo in your sourcemod configuration.'

Also, please bind to if everything runs locally. Else you'll be mining bitcoins for someone soon.

Do you get an error in sourcemod? Have you checked the sourcemod logs, have you checked the mysqld logs?

#101 - free server reservations in Projects

Some smaller and bigger updates from the past month:

  1. Thanks to Zolak, there's now a South American version of at Starting with 5 servers hosted in São Paulo, Brazil.
  2. Slightly updated the design to have better compatibility with mobile devices and smaller screens in general.
  3. Fixed an issue where FTP downloads weren't given enough time to complete, causing missing demos for long HL matches on
  4. Fixed some small UI bugs
  5. Modernized a bunch of code dependencies that were long overdue

EasyEArieCould you please add the source for the sourcemod plugin to your github repo? I'm looking to add support for this gamemode to and

Thanks :)

The map, config and the plugin are now available on all and servers. If you don't have (na.) premium you can sneakily enable the plugin by selecting "Enable" when making your reservation, but you didn't hear that from me ;)

#260 match stats in Projects
sharky_Yo why aren’t damage stats showing up here

Judging by the log file, the server you were playing on is using an ancient plugin to add the damage statistics, it's still logging steam id's in the STEAM_0:1:234567 format instead of the current [U:1:234567] format that's been around since august 2014.

#3044 PC Build Thread in Hardware
SetsulThe problem is if you can just pick any case of about the same size that limitation doesn't exist. You don't have to do insane things like cramming an NH-D14 in a 13l case but you're not limited to aios.

I love the Rajintek Metis, a friend has a build in one. He did have to drill all the GPU ventilation holes and because he migrated from a Node 202 (with longer GPU clearance) he had to take out the front USB/audio to get a 266mm 1070Ti in. Having to reverse the PSU fan to get it fresh air is also annoying.
Personally, I think the NCase M1 is a great example of a compact case supporting good air coolers and overclocking.

SetsulI mean you saw that the ML08 would fit neither a large air cooler nor an aio so you went with one that only fit aios, but not large air coolers.

That's an unnecessary negative way to look at my motivation, I simply went with the SG13 because that's the one I've built three PCs in (and two in its SG05 predecessor), because it's a great case for travelling with, supports decently long GPUs, because you can overclock it if you pick the right parts and you can run it as a low noise build.
Since I have experience with most of the parts and type of build the poster mentioned wanting, I thought I'd share those, but I'll get off your lawn now.

#3042 PC Build Thread in Hardware
SetsulAriewill be way quieter at load.That's objectively wrong.

My actual builds prove me right. I'm very specific in the build I'm recommending, a height constrained case where you can use a radiator to get fresh air from the front instead of having a tiny crappy CPU fan like the C7 inside a hot shoe box. It's a straight win in noise, temperatures and overclocking capabilities.

SetsulNow of course if we're talking about a proper overclock the C7 would throttle, but it would be quieter.

And as always, fuck aios.

Your hatred of AIOs is ill placed for high-TDP/overclocked SFF builds, where the only good argument against them is imo price. Pump noise is irrelevant on modern units, certainly much lower than fan noise when properly controlled (H75 on DC fan control, H80i on silent mode for example, NZXTs pump speed control, all not hearable in a quiet room at night) and still allows for overclocking. I specifically added a Noctua A12x25 to replace the stock radiator fan, which has way better noise characteristics than the stock fans.

#3040 PC Build Thread in Hardware
DomoCatFaceSorry I've been at this for a couple of days and gone full circle on what I want multiple times because of people's recommendations and I apolgise for that
Throw everything out of the window of what I said previously and just start again
Hi Setsul, I would like a portable gaming rig that I can take to LANs in and out of the country
Please comment on this
I have a budget of about £1.5k and I am open to suggestions
Thank you

The 8700k with that motherboard (bad VRM), cooler (can't handle the real wattage of an even slightly overclocked 8700k) and case (lack of airflow) is a waste, if you really want that CPU in a powerful, compact travel build:
Case: Silverstone SG13
Cooler: 120mm AIO (e.g. Corsair H75, or H80i if you want even better cooling/overclocking)
Motherboard: Asrock Z370 Fatality ITX
GPU: Any GPU < 270mm will fit, you can squeeze in a 279mm MSI GPU with some modding.

Now you can easily overclock it (e.g. MCE or all core 5Ghz with an AVX offset), the build is slightly smaller and will be way quieter at load. I'm very confident that this will work as a travel build, since it's basically my portable LAN PC.

Here's my proposed part list:
