The server was down last night....

Post  GM_ODA on Mon Feb 17, 2014 6:27 am

Friends,
The serverwas down - but do not panic.

Once a week, at midnight on Sunday nights, the server does a full backup of the servervault and databases - these are pretty large and it can take a little while to complete the backup. Usually we don't have much traffic at that hour so nobody has really noticed before. It looks like the backup process is running in the process list so I'm going to leave it to do its task and IF when I wake in five hours the server has not restored itself, I will then restart it. . . but short of that I don't want to interrupt the process of the backup for fear I'll break something Erin only recently automated.

THANK YOU for your patience.

I believe the system will restore itself when the backup is done. if not I'll be back in a couple hours to do it myself.

Be well. Game on.

Friends,
I was soooooo sleepy last night - the above message was composed and posted WITHOUT A SUBJECT so it did not post but was sitting on my desktop when I returned in the morning. *facepalm*

I'm just as happy it worked out that way, Erin once wisely said "never program sleepy" and I apply that to "tinkering with hardware" too.

The server is up, I restored it this morning. Erin and I will review the clues to discover what went awry there, later today.

Be well. Game on.
