Holy crap...

Unread postby Shrink908 » Sat Apr 19, 2008 12:40 pm

Well, we lost the whole database. I did figure out >WHY< finally at least. Turns out the old antivirus (symantec corporate) was arguing with MySQL over file permissions and the two corrupted the data files together.. Surprised it didn't happen sooner really. :/ But.. The good news is I updated the software while I was rebuilding so at least we're running the latest phpBB.. Now just have to get all the stuff together to make it look like it used to.

Here's Alexlayer with an alternative account for the moment.

You mean we lost all the things posted so far with no chance to retrieve it? :(

Well, at least will the forum be back like it used to be?

Yes, unfortunately the database corrupted in a non-repairable way..

The forums will go back to normal as the admins have a chance to re-add them and all that.. I don't have all the info to do it myself so I'm hoping someone else does.

Um...

So, there was no backup copy?

And let that be a lesson to us.

Actually.. I was in the midst of backing the data up when it went belly up.. The attempt at backing up the data caused the conflict that corrupted the damned files..

Well this sucks monkey testicles. All those half finished challenges and captions and reviews on fics all just...gone. The wonders of technology. Guess we'll just have to wait for the rebuild. Damn.

Too true.

The whole blue and white scheme unnerves me a bit...I'm too used to the green and black.

Well, since apparently we're already restoring ourselves, I dropped the previous account.

I'll be patient. Hopefully it won't take long. I got some cookies I gotta show Zearth. :mrgreen:

I'm likely to get my g/f who is a webdesigner to come in and do the colour scheme.. She was a member here before, had even posted some original fiction work.. So she should be able to make it go back to the right colors..
