    Looks like MySQL took a hike overnight. Unfortunately I'd already gone offline for the evening here in the UK and Grimby was offline for a meeting. By the time he found out and emailed Grahame (our server person) he was also offline for the day. But we're back now...

    On a serious note, how much memory do you have allocated to SQL. With the increase in traffic on this site, is it going to a problem.

    Grahame has already said he doesn't think it was a memory issue. We had some of those in the past but we made some changes and that seemed to have sorted it out. Right now he doesn't know what's causing this.

    I hate SQL-I think it was designed by the Sith and the Empire....oh wait it was ......Microsoft. ;)

    Cleaning out the cache may help it temporarily, but the long term fix is additional memory. (Just a thought......dont mean to interfere).

    Right now it's a bit of a mystery - MySQL just stops. You haven't seen much of the outages because either Grimby or I have been around when it happened so we could email Grahame. Yesterday was just unlucky that we were both offline. I'm in the UK so I tend to be on early in the board day. Grimby and Grahame are in the US so they are around later. Grahame has updated the software to the latest releases. It could be something as simple as one of the plugins throwing a hissy fit. Problem is that our server error log doesn't show anything before/after it happens.

    Grand Admiral Boodle had his cruisers create a perimeter while his fighters flew into the infrastructure and attempted to knock out the system...........

    Are you rebooting the server every time it goes down?

    Not sure what Grahame is doing - whether he's rebooting the server or just restarting MySQL.

    The prior Pizza Party was a longsuffering travesty, but last night was simply outrageous. I tried 3 times to get on and update an info page in WNU and, instead, I had time to accomplish stuff in service of DarthRL and spend time with my wife. Completely reprehensible. You'll read my detailed indignation in the First World Problems thread!!!

    Yeah that Pizza Run was completely unacceptable. I ended up finishing all of my homework and hung out with friends! This better not happen again.
