Sorry About the Downtime!

Recommended Posts

Guest Chris

Hi all,

 

Sorry about the downtime this morning/this afternoon. I noticed the site was down when I was in a meeting at work, but couldn't hop on the server to fix it. As you can (hopefully :P) see, it's now fixed.

 

And for those that are interested: This downtime was a knock-on effect from the issues we had a couple of days ago. Turns out MySQL doesn't like it *at all* when the disk gets full. It's temp files were borked, some tables needed repairing, etc.

 

Anyhow - all sorted and shouldn't be a recurring issue.

I was worried that server hard drive crashed. From reading the error message when trying to connect.

Glad it's back up :)

What message was that? I never noticed the downtime.

I hope that nothing got corrupted...

I'm very relieved, as I had no idea what the 'drivers' were!

Just a generic 'can't connect to database' error.

And nope, no data lost.

I use Mariadb instead of MySQL.

In my experiance MySQL is the most widely supported database backend amongst web applications so it doesn't really make sense to use anything else.
