Sorry about downtime - significant database crash. Coming back up.

Greetings from Newport, Rhode Island  Grin - and test post

Trickling back ... should be restores as was at 14:10 checkpoint.   Some images still to be restored.   Limited access prevents full analysis - just concentrating on getting it going (and not missing last tender back to ship!)

OK ... some issues remain but I will need to look at them tomorrow (in next port).   Deep issues on which I have not trained / instructed a backup person - sorry, folks.

I blame Brexit!
Or possibly a drone attack, maybe even a swarm of drones.

More seriously, thank you for all your work.

A proper intercity train has a minimum of 8 coaches, gangwayed throughout, with first at one end, and a full sized buffet car between first and standard.
It has space for cycles, surfboards,luggage etc.
A 5 car DMU is not a proper inter-city train. The 5+5 and 9 car DMUs are almost as bad.

I am noting - and I'm sure other members are too - that our server has been staggering a bit over the last few days, with dropped connections and various other messages from time to time.  I'm taking a look but no magic wand.

If you are making a significant post (i.e. one that's taken a time to write and you really don't want to have to rewrite), take a copy on your local system before you post please - just in case the post goes wrong. And should you accidentally make a duplicate post, don't worry too much - one of the moderators / admins will understand and remove the second copy.

If it helps these are the messages I have been getting:

Database Error: MySQL server has gone away
File: /home/firstgreatwestern/httpdocs/coffeeshop/Sources/Display.php
Line: 145

Connection Problems
Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.

Sadly I am getting similar messages.   Tried most of the normal things.   Will try some abnormal things this evening but working today.

Ah, it wasn't only me! I've just double-posted (again) in another thread after I got the above messages or nothing seemed to happen when I pressed "post".

Still testing - but looks promising.  I have cleaned up a couple of tables that appeared to have got a bit dirty, and the database engine sounds like its purring not grating now.  For those of you concerned as to our long term future, our database engine is electric and indeed has never run on fossil fuel, nor produced particulates.

Presuming that your electricity is obtained from the grid, then some fossil fuel IS consumed and some particulates are emitted by the production of the electricity used by the server.
UK electricity is greener than that in many other countries, but by no means completely green.

You are, of course, correct. You also correctly assume our server is in the UK; may move from dedicates to the server to the cloud over Christmas, which is suspect uses less power per page served than the old server.  And in any case (wherever we choose) we are joining in with the electricity industry as they reduce to the point of elimination the use of fossil fuel.

Itís all about striking a balance over climate change or we will all be back in the caves and burning fossil fuel to keep warm.
