    SWGEmu Web & Database Server Upgrade

    SWGEmu Web & Database Server Upgrade

    SWGEmu Web & Database Server Upgrade 05/16/11



    To further improve our services, it was originally planned to upgrade our SWGEmu Web & Database Server to a more powerful machine. However, we just discovered that we can get a big memory upgrade for free, so for now we are upgrading from 2GB DDR2 RAM to 8GB DDR2 RAM.


    A brief summary:




    These changes mean a number of things:
    SWGEmu Web & Database Server performance should improve and we hope to reduce or maybe even eliminate these frequent periods of lag and cut outs of our Forum and other SWGEmu web services.

    SWGEmu Website, Forum and Database
    will experience a short period of downtime (24 hours max). This downtime will allow the host to upgrade SWGEmu Web & Database Server, have it tested and ready.

    • This means website, forums, Wiki and Mantis will be unavailable.
    • IRC and our server in Denver (Liberator and TC: Nova) shouldn't be affected by this.
    • Please note that no new accounts can be created or old accounts reactivated during this downtime.

    When did this happen:

    This was scheduled to happen on Monday, May 16, 2011

    Server was taken offline at 10:25AM CET, upgraded and it was already up and running at 10:35AM CET.

    Wait so the website and the db were running on a 2GB system?
    I thought we were already past that.

    8GB won't hurt.

    I can tell you guys this. The guild EoK, (EoK has many different names depending upon the game, but will always have guild names that start with EoK.) We have found out about this and are coming in droves. We are a 15 year old guild and a lot of us love SWG and would have never left if it were not for that new system. Know we have this we are getting the message out and getting many of the old guild members back to SWG. I gave up on on line games, but know my sons have found this, here we come! Thank you for making this server!!!
