DediConnect can install various services on your machine. These services are optional and are usually required by game servers, like needing a MySQL database to store data.
MySQL / MariaDB
DediConnect installs MariaDB, which is a MySQL drop-in replacement with generally better performance and support.
Beside the general connection information for the main database can you also find the
root account information + examples for plugin settings.
For optimal performance we recommend each machine is connected with every other machine. In the example below we sync 2 machines. Repeat the steps if you have more machines.
1. Install Syncthing & open settings url
Install Syncthing on all machines that need to be synchronized. When the service finished installing, head over to the
Settings page and open the Syncthing URL for all Syncthing services you installed.
2. Find & copy Syncthing ID for machine A
In the Syncthing interface, hit
3. Add Syncthing ID to machine B
On Machine B click "Add remote device" and paste the ID (the one you copied from machine A) in here. Do NOT click Save yet.
Navigate to the
Sharing tab and activate
cluster. Then hit
4. Confirm on machine A
Now go back to the Syncthing interface on Machine A. After a short while a confirmation window will show up. This will ask you to confirm that you want to connect with Machine B. Do not add any device that you do not recognise.
5. Confirm sharing folders
After confirming to connect with Machine B, Syncthing will ask to confirm sharing the "backup" and "cluster" folder. Click "Share" for both.
Remote devices are connected.
Like with game servers can you reinstall a service or delete it. Activity logs are also available for services.
Rename services or move them to a different cluster.
Settings specific to services are also listed on the
Settings page. See available services for more information.
All activity for a service, either initiated by an admin or the DediConnect system is reported to the activity page. Issues are also reported here.
Bring activity logs to your dashboard panels using the "Events & activity" dashboard widget.
As the name implies: things you can do here are dangerous and can cause data loss!
Restart, re-install or delete a service via the Danger zone section.
