Post subject:  Database crash - some posts may have been lost

Hi all,

We suffered a database crash last night after the virtual machine crashed. The virtual machine has been having issues over the past 2 weeks with lots of crashes and is getting rebuilt this weekend. However as a result of the crash we did have to restore the database from a backup, and some posts may have been lost overnight. At most this was anything posted between 3am and 7am GMT.

There will be a short downtime some time over the weekend when we switch servers and finalise configurations.

Andy

Somehow I managed to get to this site now and write a post. I hope that will improve and it will be active at next week.

Is the FTP affected? It looks like it went offline sometime around 8 this morning. I was uploading some large files, was not done yet, and when I try to connect now I get "530 Can't login : invalid home directory."

Yes everything is affected. FTP will be back online this evening.

I noticed that the thread I created has gone. I'll have to repost it.

Yes, apologies for that. We're looking at increasing the frequency of database backups so that data loss is less in the future.

Do I need to reupload my recent submissions?

No, your uploads were fine, thank you.
