Apparently, somehow… my forums mysql database got corrupted. Going to www.palmerforpresident.com/forum would just hang there… and my server would eventually kill the apache process. I’m 99 percent sure this points to database corruption.
I tried to restore the database from backup… but that doesnt work correctly. basically…. things are effed. I might try some more, i might not. For now, i have phpbb installed at http://www.palmerforpresident.com/forum
Many people have tried running a message board software- it seems that they just kind of die off. Maybe its not worth even tryin to get back.
rm -rf /home/vanberge/yabbsebackup ??
Updated – after some sql editing, some database delete / renames, and some php tweaking, i got the effing forum database to restore. But, since this is as of august 8th, i lose 3 months of data.
if i do it… you have to do it to jja.. 🙂
Nope. I did not corrupt my database and lose three months of conversations. :raz:
I dont think im going to rm jja….
I FIXED THE MSG BOARDS COMPLETELY.
ALL DATA RESTORED.
although now i must say i know mysql much better than i ever wanted. and clearly i wasted 7 hours of my life making this work. horrendous persona.
