Massive overhaul of the update system and EQEmu Server management uti…
…lity framework (known as eqemu_update.pl) now known as eqemu_server.pl - eqemu_server.pl is now a general EQEmu Server management utiltiy framework that can be used to extend to many purposes. It's main purpose is to simplify server management - eqemu_server.pl changes: - Menu has been completely changed, instead of a number based (enter number and hit enter) you now type commands within the menu (Ex: 'database') - Handles last mile installation for Windows Servers (See Github Readme) - Handles last mile installation for Linux Servers (See Github Readme) - Ubuntu - Debian - Fedora - CentOS - Now checks for Internet connection before performing web requests - Database: - Regular schema updates now happen automatically, if new binaries present updated database schema changes, script will backup first, auto update database, and continue world bootup - Regular bots database schema changes now happen automatically similarily to the above - Database checks can also be ran manually via the script menu - CLI Arguments - Arguments passed to eqemu_server.pl can execute the same name-based operations that are present in the interactive menu - Example: "perl eqemu_server.pl opcodes" will download opcodes - Example: "perl eqemu_server.pl backup_player_tables" will backup and export player tables - Bots - Bots can now be automatically setup in Linux or Windows via the 'setup_bots' command - Windows will auto download binaries and install, along with installing bots db schema - Linxu will auto compile binaries and install, along with installings bots db schema - Utility scripts - Linux now has the following utility scripts for download, available via menu 'utility_scripts' and via Linux default install: - server_launcher.pl - server_start_dev.sh - server_start.sh - server_status.sh - server_stop.sh - Usage analytics - eqemu_server.pl now collects usage analytics, this is very helpful for our developers - Example: We can see how many installs have been performed: https://github.com/EQEmu/Server#server-installs - This helps us see how often certain utilities are used as well - Console Messages - All script messages have been prefixed with a bracket action Ex: [Update] [Database] [Info] to be more consistent with our log conventions - 'New Server' Utility - Running 'new_server' from the main menu or 'perl eqemu_server.pl new_server' while in a completely new folder with just the script present, will allow a server operator to initiate a full clean PEQ install in that folder. Pulling down all assets and installing a PEQ database with the name the server operator gives the prompts in the script
