Forum back, but watch out for problems

Post by SSCBen » Mon Jan 04, 2010 11:55 pm

The forum was acting funny a few days ago. I attempted to repair the database yesterday and MySQL (the database software) stopped working. The problem was that we also were running out of space, which prevented the repair from working correctly and also tied up the system with multiple connections due to my attempts to repair the database.

I deleted some old backups and repaired the database. There was some database corruption but it likely was limited to the indexes. There should not be any data loss for that reason, but watch for anything that seems odd. I have backups from a few days ago that could be used to fill in broken spots.
