Nothing I can do about it. Unless you can provide more than "it's having issues doing it" there's absolutely nothing I can do about it. I don't handle MySQL, I take care of plugins and some other website stuff. Kawohi has to do anything relating to MySQL and she's out of commission for god knows how long. -_-
Well, I actually did find this.
It seems to be a long-standing issue with Towny and Spigot. -_-
For cryin out fuckin loud, is there not any way we can have a stable server on 1.7 anymore!? Jesus christ... CoreProtect is adding 2 minutes or so to server start time. Dynmap added about 30 seconds. NoCheatPlus was adding 4 minutes. Bukkit itself takes anywhere from 0 to 30 seconds just to save. Spigot is an impatient bitch and crashes if a MySQL connection takes too long!
This is getting ridiculous... One way or the other, it looks like server performance is fucked. sedfilkhei
