https://nmctest.net

It's back, look forward to a few improvements when I get time. It's on an affordable server, should be able to keep it running for a while.

I want to run some more testnet web apps on that server & domain too. A blockchain explorer & possibly some name lookup utils.

Please push your changes to the git repository! I noticed that the faucet now send a more tidy amount of testnet coins, thats great!

Would love to collaborate on the code :-) I have sent almost all coins that I got from posting in this thread to your faucet.

Now we only need a CNAME to namecoin.info and/or namecoin.org (hope its okey that i did a cname from my domain to yours)

Thanks for the donation it's appreciated, especially since the mining difficulty went up. The faucet server cpu mines on a single hyperthread of an Atom N2800, so it's not finding many blocks now the difficulty has gone up a bit.

The site is https, so it'll want a cert for a different domain & I'll need to config the server for it so it doesn't just redirect to the default website (done that for your domain now, thanks - it should redirect to https://nmctest.net). I want to add some more testnet web apps on that domain too, a working block explorer & a testnet nameid too, the faucet will probably go in a subdirectory when I add those,

It's a dirty hack to round the number of coins & it might not even work if the faucet gets low on funds, that's the reason I haven't shared it, I need to tidy it up more. I will make some more changes & share them soon, it needs to handle errors from namecoind better too.

$pay = tosatoshi(floor(fromsatoshi($pay))); // messy!

That's the only change I've made, except altering some values in config.php so you only need to wait 5 seconds between request.

I was working on configuring the server last night, still learning nginx, but I think I've got the https set up pretty well now, A+ https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze ... mctest.net
