    Default Board downtime/errors

    Our hosting provider performed a few upgrades today:

    MySQL : 4.1 to 5.0
    PHP : 4.4.x to 4.4.9
    PHP : 5.2.x to 5.2.17
    Apache 1.3.x/2.0.x/2.2.x to 2.2.17

    As a result, some MYSQL databases got corrupted, likely because they were open during the upgrades. I am running a bunch of repairs as I type this to hopefully fully resolve the issues, but some must already be done or I wouldn't be able to post this.

    Should you see any errors elsewhere, please post it here.

    Thx
    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.

    Not seeing any errors at this time, but this explains the fatal error message I was getting earlier.
    When I die I'm sure to go to heaven, cause I spent my time in hell.

    You get more with a kind word and a two by four, than you do with just a kind word.

    I'll bet you thought it was Bin Laden revenge when you saw "fatal"!

    That's a relief. I thought the Navy Seals were coming for Gaffer.

    Gaffer can be a little secretive at times, it's highly possible that he is the one who performed the "double tap" that took out OBL!

    binladen didn't come to mind, but WTF was my first thought. I then tried another site with no problem so figured it must be your server. You got things back up quickly, kudos to you.

    I was out actually when it went down, just happened to pop back in and had 178 emails waiting for me. Every single time a member gets an error like that, the board is configured to send me an email. It sucks when you get so many, but it can also make me aware of issues I don't know about. It also sends me a different error allowing me to troubleshoot a little quicker/easier.

    I was on my way back out too, might have had 1000 emails waiting for me when I got back. I know some of the much larger boards turn that option off or "someone" would be getting bombarded with thousands and thousands of emails if it goes down for a short time. As many members have told me here, my board sucks, so I don't have that problem!

    It is not the messages that your board sucks that should bother you. It is when members start telling you that you suck. Not that anyone here would ever do that.

    They generally go hand in hand, the board sucks because I do. If you only read some of the lovely emails I have received over the years! LOL

    Your board only sucks to liberal trolls.

    Ummm, just barely, and at the latest stable releases - and it's not "mine" - the site is hosted elsewhere. Most large webhosting providers are using similar.
