down time

Post by Ironman » Sun Nov 01, 2009 8:18 pm

You may have noticed the forum had a problem. The /var had filled up. I had Geoff from the hosting service clear out some space.

It took me a while but eventually I was able to remember how to get on the phpmyadmin so I could fix the MYSQL database. Then I repaired the posts table. I'm not a database guy, so it took me a while to figure that out. It looks like everything is ok now though.

Thanks Ironman. Seeing the error messages gave me MySQL flashbacks to my helpdesk days. I remembered why I switched to nice, happy networking before I left IT entirely. :)

Thanks again for putting the work in and getting us back up and posting.
