Due to random issues with our current server we are forced to move Basilisk and our Database to a new box.
UPDATE November 29th 2012
Since this announcement was posted our host FDC started experiencing numerous network issues too. Because of that and because of the constant hardware failures and random server box crashes we have decided to switch hosts and we will be moving our server to SoftLayer Technologies, Dallas 05 data center. They are a bit more expensive but come highly recommended, we will adjust our monthly donations goal accordingly.
Here is brief a summary of what is happening:
- At around 1PM EST (check your local time here) Basilisk, our Database and our Global registration will be taken offline.
- Basilisk and Database will being moved to a new machine in Dallas, Texas
- The SWGEmu Website, Forum, our IRC server and TC: Nova will remain as they were.
Basilisk and our Database will experience an extended period of downtime (approximately 24 hours, but we are not sure how long it will take to copy all of our files from one box to the other). The downtime will allow us to backup Basilisk Database and move Basilisk and our Database to the new machine and have it tested and ready.
During this downtime our global registration will be disabled to prevent creation of bugged or broken accounts.

PLEASE NOTE: To do all this a Database wipe will not be necessary, all your characters, items, credits, XP, etc will be saved.
