Hour of downtime this afternoon


Recommended Posts

If bad things come in threes, we've had our three for the month. There was (yet again) an hour or two of forum downtime this afternoon. Apparently almost everyone who uses PHP & MySQL has been having problems the last few days as some critical pieces of software have begun to require an upgrade to MySQL 4.x. That upgrade apparently causes problems with lots of other widely used software.

The downtime lasted so long because I was in the midst of a Zelda marathon and failed to check my email.

Since it is such a widespread problem, lots of people are working on it so I'm confident it will be resolved soon. In the meantime, I've installed a "band aid" script that verifies the SQL tables for the forums every 15 minutes, so until they fix this problem we shouldn't ever have more than 15 minutes of downtime.
