MySQL ate some tables. In the past, our ISP has been able to rebuild them for us without the loss of any data. At this point, it's all up to them ... if they can't do it, the alternative is to restore from a semi-old backup, which will not be fun.

It has nothing to do with phpBB. It's the MySQL Database Backend.. which I suspected from the beginning.. as posted in another thread someplace around here.

As a question to Mark though.. how exactly does MySQL eat the tables? If you can explain in a bit more detail.. how do the tables just get screwed up all of a sudden.. and not work? Enlighten me (us) ! :)

I don't know if this is what is in play with Big-O's mySQL tables or not, but we had a similar thing happen at the forum I help administer for MS Access related stuff. The owner of the forum (and DBA) said that mySQL can get real nasty if one of the tables gets corrupted. When it gets corrupted you (the user) gets presented with those familiar mySQL errors on the screen. But if a user/users keep hammering the website with refresh calls or whatnot, the table can get so corrupted, it just can't be recovered. In our instance, we had a user that made 300 refresh calls in 1 hour after the table got corrupted and hosed a table, fortunately, our DBA makes frequent backups so we didn't lose much (about a day)

How Old is this backup? I mean, most of the frequent posters joined around the same time. I think we should all remeber our post count so the DB can be restored.

More posts does not mean a better poster. Quantity does not mean Quality.

So much for what my College English teacher just told me today... Does that mean I don't have to come up with 40+ "brain storming" ideas.
