  Forums Online -Posting Enabled
SWR Technical News Hello all - I didn't think this was possible but logins are now working and forum posting is enabled. So far now other part of the site is functioning properly, particularly the admin center which controls everything so other than manually posting news in the database directly, I don't have much to go on. Hopefully our new site will be coming online soon.

  SWR in READ ONLY MODE & Other Site News
SWR Technical News This announcement is long overdue, and I am having to use a direct database Insert query to post this. For reasons we cannot fathom, the SWR website and database became non-functional after a server to server transfer when we upgraded servers. As a result, no one is able to login, post, create accounts, retrieve passwords, etc. The site is stuck in READ ONLY mode, due to problems we and three contracted phpNuke coders have been unable to fix. We apologize for the inconvenience. Good news is you should be able to access all the content still.

On to new news, we have founded the Star Wars Gamers Association, with which we will be unleashing a new website that focuses on the modern releases of Star Wars Games, as well as old and new games in the Star Wars genre. We will be migrating our existing forums and their content to our new website (and pray that nothing goes wrong during that migration). We have hired a team of professional web designers and coders to work on the new website. We are excited to be moving forward and preserve this community. We thank you for your patience with us and hope to see you back again once the new website launches. Until then May the Force be with you!

-Ryan, Stratus, Evaders99, EvilleJedi, Keshaun, and the SWRebellion Network Staff

  Server Recovery & Updates
SWR Technical News On April 17th, 2013, one of the hard drives on our RAID system failed, resulting in total connectivity loss. Working with the datacenter technicians, we were able to have the server brought up in rescue mode in which I backed up as much as was possible over command-line. Luckily, the datacenter technicians were able to swap out the bad hard drive and the RAID mirror was successfully established without loss of data. We apologize to the webmasters of the 31 domains we currently host for the inconvenience. The downtime resulted in the creation of a new Server Status news page hosted on a different server (so it will always be online, where our current Helpdesk site resides). You can check server status updates regardless of whether or not the server is offline at http://status.swrebellion.com/. You may also submit tickets to our helpdesk at http://help.swrebellion.com at any time.

The DNS servers which regulated swrebellion.com have been changed from the OpenSRS "Domains by SWRebellion" domain name servers (which control IP address and mail routing for our primary domain name) have moved to the RackSpace Cloud DNS servers, StableTransit.

For our customers who are hosted by us and have their own domain names, we encourage you to transfer your domain name to our own registrar, Domains by SWRebellion (http://domains.swrebellion.net). New domain names may also be registered there with competitive market pricing, and of course our personal customer service provided directly by myself, Evaders99, and EvilleJedi. This way we will be able to perform redirection to the status page when the server is down and automatically update your DNS server information when necessary.

 While transfer and registration of domain names through our registrar is highly recommended, it is not required. If you wish to continue hosting your domains with us, you must change your domain name servers through your current registrar to ns1.swrebellion.com and ns2.swrebellion.com. If you wish to use a different DNS server names such as navcomputer.net, eaglehosting.net, or eagledns.com, please let me know via the helpdesk and I will set these up for you. Additionally I can arrange for off-site hosting of your domain servers if required, as we have four different companies we contract with that make this service available to us for free.

If you wish to host email for your domain on our server, full featured options with webmail (AtMail or Horde), POP3/IMAP4, etc., are available. We can also assist you in setting up your domain with other mail server options hosted by Domains by SWRebellion, our domain registrar, Hotmail, Google Apps for Businesses, 1&1 email service, etc., some of which are fee-based and others are free. To inquire more please submit a Helpdesk ticket. If you have any questions, please submit them through your Hosting Sponsor (a member of our staff who set you up with web hosting), or submit a Helpdesk ticket. Thank you.

Jim Stratus
Technical Director

*We are looking for individuals who have skills in PHP or artistic and HTML coding capabilities to give some of our sites a facelift or fresh start including navcomputer.net, our Helpdesk site for SWR (using current graphics but editing the html around it to work), eaglehosting.net, eagledns.com, etc. Please submit a ticket through the helpdesk if you wish to volunteer your services in exchange for free webhosting on our dedicated server.

  Server Move Completed
SWR Technical News This post is long overdue, but the server move has been completed. Recently an IP Address was deleted from our IP pool for some unknown reason and 24 of our hosted websites were sharing that IP. If your site, hosted by us, is or was down, please allow 24 hours for DNS changes to propogate as we have changed your IP address to one allotted to our pool. We are still working on updating other DNS entries that could not be changed automatically that must be done so manually.We have christened the new server as the Thrawn Server (with the Lando Server's retirement).

All hosting and ftp account passwords have been given a random password. If you have not received yours please contact admin at swrebellion dot com. 

We have joined forces with Luke from StarWars-iRC.net and have worked together to bring you a stable IRC network. For more information, visit http://www.starwars-irc.net. You may reach the IRC server with an IRC client at irc.starwars-irc.net or if your website is hosted by us, irc.<yourdomain>
