    Website and Database Move 01/07/12

    Website and Database Move

    January 7th, 2012
    The SWGEmu Community Division


    Hello everyone,

    Continuing our changes to increase and improve Core3/Engine3 development, it was deemed necessary to lighten the developer's administrative workload on the servers. The SWGEmu website and database, which are currently on the Chicago box, will be transferred to our new box, which we call the Community Box. The old Denver box will continue to run Liberator unchanged. The Community Division department, Site Services, will operate this server and it will host:
    • The SWGEmu Homepage - www.swgemu.com
    • The SWGEmu Community Forums - plus one archive version
    • The SWGEmu Community Wiki
    • Mantis Nova Bugtracker - plus two archive versions
    • JIRA/Fisheye
    • MySQL Database
    • Global Registration
    • Biophilia's SWG PreCU Scrapbook v5.1





    What will happen:
    1. Core3/Engine3 developers will get the server in Chicago to be dedicated to TC: Nova and TC: STM
    2. All items listed above will be moved as-is to the new Community Box
    3. Liberator on the Denver server will remain unchanged

    What does all that mean:
    • Liberator and TC: Nova will be on separate hardware boxes, hardware failure of one box won't affect both servers.
    • Developers will be able to manage the Chicago box as they need to best benefit development, without spending time on community stuff.


    How long will Website and Database be offline?

    • We expect downtime to be less than 24 hours for all things on the website.


    PLEASE NOTE: Test Center, Liberator/Nova/STM, IRC will NOT be affected during the downtime but a new person will not be able to register to play on TC. The Nova/STM move will happen at a later date.


    - The SWGEmu Community Division




    UPDATE:
    Site is back online using the new Community Box. Please report any issues to Support: Site Services Issues.

    How expensive are monthly operating costs now with a third server?

    crap... ah well -grabs his brass knuckles- time to Chuck Norris a Krayt...-slaps some mud on his face and runs into the wilds around Coronet looking for it-
    To live one must study the past, live the present and watch the future,
    Anything else is hedonism at best.

    Third, Community box has been around for months now, monthly costs are still the same as they were back in November.

    FDC for three dedicated servers = $897.00
    BurstNet for Windows virtual private server = $7.95
    Xzibition for IRC virtual private server = $8.76
    TOTAL EXPENSES = $913.71

    Weren't both Liberator and Nova running on the now "Liberator Box"? So, if all three servers have been around for months, what was running on the now "Community Box" previously?

    Yup, as far as i know they are still on the same Denver box, and Community box was being prepared for the move, Site Services probably has more info on this, my involvement in the actual move began when and ended when I posted this.


    P.S. This move probably should have happened months ago, like it was planed. But some of the staff members went MIA, others were just too busy IRL and didnt have time for SWGEmu, so everything was put on hold, up until now.

    Probably not, but if something goes wrong, like it usually does around here, well... Better to say 24 hours and if everything goes according to plan, finish in 2 or 3 hours, than to say 2 or 3 hours and then when something goes wrong, blah, blah, blah.
