    Shutting down a private server

    I want this private server shut down. Or at least its DB wiped. It's very small, just 2 amateur GMs, and no more than 15 active players. I'm willing to pay to have it closed. Don't ask why. Please respond

    Yeah. Got that account suspended for spam, even though I was spamming in a forum called spamboard. Ironic.

    The only way to shut down the server is to be able to be at the persons computer, because if you did somehow manage to edit the database, they can easily restore the backup and have the server running within 5 minutes. My suggestion is to find a new server so that way you wont be mad =)

    Being at the person's computer is a possibility, I know the guy. But I'm trying to do this anonymously. If I can't shut it down from a remote location, how hard is it to obtain account names and passwords?

    Well you can, but you need to make sure his computer is able to receive remote connections. You can do this by going on his computer, so since you know the guy, just hang out one day at his house and when he goes to the bathroom or something, theres your chance. And theres your chance to either add an account to the DB or copy his info.

    If you dont want to that way, when he goes out of the room for something, you can google "my ip" and copy that down to your cell phone, so that way you can remote connect to him. Im guessing you dont know how a WoW private server is runs ? You cant technically "Shut It Down" because they can just ReOpen the "File" (Its more like an EXE that boots everything together to help run the server) back up, you would need to delete certain files in the servers Folder itself, usually simply on the C Drive is default, and that way the server wont even load up because missing / corrupt files.

    Deleting files is the easiest way to ruin a server, because when they open the EXE it will force close with error message stating corrupt files, forcing them to reinstall everything.
