The website went Kaboom!

Postby mindstormmaster » Tue Jul 08, 2008 12:00 am

<p id='post'>Our database server crashed a little while ago. Efforts to recover it cleanly were unsuccessful and it has been reloaded from our nightly backups. We've lost about 22 hours of activity (12:01am Monday to 8:15pm, the time of the crash).

The root cause of the crash has not been determined, but we'll keep an eye out for anything out of the ordinary. We're thankful our backup procedures worked, though this was an unwelcome test of them.</p>

An update on the problems:
We had the server down for the last few days, which includes the Stats server, to remedy the issue we are having. All systems go, yo.

Drive and filesystem problems affected the webserver as well. It was down from Tuesday noon PST until Wednesday 6pm PST for disk integrity checks and restore from backups. We're taking steps to prevent this from happening again.
