Sub_title: Error message on trying to access the forum.

Well, I am here anyway via a back door and logged in to boot.
But trying to access the forum normally just dead ends with the error box of a corrupted database and the failure of some autorestore.

According to investigation, there are 59 Guests on line and it shows one in each section.
Also, before I logged on to leave this message, there were 3 registered users on line. They were AskJeeves, MSNBot, and invisible man.

My investigative reporting is done and I'm outa here!
Oh yea, here is oversized pic of the screen.

For those interested

It is a hoster problem, I managed to fix the database and other corrupt files however it seems they are still having issues.

It is pretty late here and I cannot wait until they are fixed, but at leat the whole forum is now functional ... Performance is not good anywhere I suspect as I have diagnosed problems at hosting side (IO).

Currently I have to see what they say, I am chasing them and hope to be changing company soon.

Backups are offline and safe, there is no risk.

Thanks, John
Sent the same error page by email.....about 12 hours back....
I may have been 'invisible man', as I stayed logged on for quite a while trying to find the back door that 8-bit found
Interestingly, I could view/change my profile details, but not much else

I was testing also, and found that the 64.xx.xx.xx IP Address [can't remember the rest, and didn't save it] was overloaded at the time of the crash
....don't know if that may be significant?

over-slicing the timeslice, maybe?

btw, had you changed 'viewprofile' settings, as I used to use it to find spammer posts
It was no longer working for anyone other than my own profile, though I note since this [today] fix, it is working again

I'm sure this was not the cause of the crash, but it's been showing up for at least a week:

Missing nameservers reported by parent FAIL: The following nameservers are listed at your nameservers as nameservers for your domain, but are not listed at the parent nameservers (see RFC2181 5.4.1). You need to make sure that these nameservers are working.If they are not working ok, you may have problems!
Missing nameservers reported by your nameservers ERROR: One or more of the nameservers listed at the parent servers are not listed as NS records at your nameservers. The problem NS records are:
This is listed as an ERROR because there are some cases where nasty problems can occur (if the TTLs vary from the NS records at the root servers and the NS records point to your own domain, for example).

I was able to access the individual forums directly ...index.php?f=## (11 is additional software), just not the main page. Wow, for once my browser history was actually useful. It kinda felt like a non-Puppy forum as I was posting to my abiword thread though since few would likely see it or post anything back until the forum was working fully.

I don't know what was wrong, or what if anything happened to fix it, but the forum is working much better as of Sunday afternoon Arizona time than it was from Friday afternoon. Very Happy

The bad news is, now the spammers will return. Evil or Very Mad
