Dear Aurora-Realms Community.

It is with heavy heart, that we must say goodbye to our Perfect World Server.

I know this may come as a surprise to many, but there was many issues regarding our server

First of all, our server was running on an End of Life cycle of Linux. What this means is that the software, and operating system, was way out of date, and was no longer supported. This means our max version of php was 5.x.x. The reason this is bad is because we cannot upgrade our software to make our server secure.

We've experienced MANY injection hacks on the daily, only some being successful and patched, but it wasn't good enough to keep it totally secure. The only way it could would be to upgrade the software, and thus, would mean wiping everything, and starting over.

We cannot as a community slack on security just to keep servers running. It's not safe for you, or us.

This is why we have decided to temporarily close our services.
However, this does NOT mean the end of Aurora-Realms.

We are already working on some other projects that you may enjoy! Please stay tuned for possible server we might be bringing online.

We appreciate your kindness and support you have given us, and we hope to once again be your home for other games.

Feel free to stick around, as we will have more news in the following month.
