    SITE OUTAGE : Apologies and details

    As you are probably aware, we experienced a major site outage today. Around 9.35am AEDT this morning, the data centre that hosts the Ausphotography site had a major power failure. This took down their servers, including the Ausphotography one. When power was restored we could not get the Ausphotography site to start. For those with a bit of technical knowledge MySQL kept failing.

    A short while ago Kym got MySQL running and then we had to restore the site databases to get the site back online.

    Whilst all of this was outside our control, my sincerest apologies for this outage. I hope you took the spare time to go and take some photos instead .

    Personally, I want to thank Kym for all his work on this for the last 2-3 hours.

    Welcome back everyone!

    Not to worry Rick... Doesn't happen very often. Lucky you did get it going though. I was just starting to get the DT's.

    Gory technical details...

    1. Major power failure and we were off-line for some hours

    2. Power back, but a major database corruption

    3. Managed to save all database using some magic to bypass the corrupt ibdata1 file (google it)

    4. Restarted database after deleting corrupt files

    5. Restored everything

    Whew!!

    Excellent job guys. Now, like all good IT operations its time to start apportioning blame.

    ISP? Software Provider? Hardware provider? Gremlins? US Presidential Election Result?
