    Default Here we are again.... the database corruption followed us on this restore...

    And it is still there. I tried to get a full backup for about a month and could not resolve the issue. No repairs are doing it. And when I restored using the 12/10/2023 this time I tried again and I still had the issue. So, something corrupted it before then and I am going to have to keep trying to find a valid backup and we may lose more posts than we did this time...

    I'm thinking of turning on the site while I figure out this mess. Creating a test site or something and allowing you all to post, it would entail losing the posts again when I finally find a clean backup without the corruption.

    Yeah, me too. I hate that this is something that wasn't resolved with the last one. I have a backup from 11/29/2023.. I'm going to try that one. Since I was able to back up on 12/10/2023 after that it may not have the corruption in it.

Since I was able to back up on 12/10/2023 after that it may not have the corruption in it. It's about 2.2 gigs in gzip form, so about 8 Gigs of data around...

    I'm uploading it to a file that they can use to restore from that backup...

    I need to start keeping at least one backup from each month because the next one back is from August...

    I believe that folks will be happier if they can post, even if this is only temporary. I have asked them to restore from an earlier backup so that the corruption that followed us with the 12/10/2023 backup can (hopefully) be avoided. Since I was able to get a valid backup on 12/10/2023 but never after that date I think that the corruption must have happened between 11/29/2023 to 12/10/2023...

    Anyway, I'll open the site again to let people post for a bit, but it will go down when they start reloading from the earlier backup...

    Seems to be a lot of duplicate posts. I noticed something was still a little off lately, but just slow getting the site to load. I've been out for a couple of days like everyone else.

    Good luck chasing this around

    If I was forced to be an IT guy I’d probably have to commit suicide.

    I've been an IT guy. It's as thankless as being a cop. You always get called when something goes wrong, but when everything runs smoothly, you're ignored.

    Chasing a database corruption is no fun, Damo. I wish you luck in finding a solid copy that we can all start posting from again. You run an excellent forum, and I fully appreciate your efforts to keep it that way.

    It might not be a coincidence that what we are facing is exactly what our abusive overlords want for us....driving down morale is a huge feature in their program not a bug.

    And their preferred method is deceit.....they consider being honest about their intents and actions a character flaw....they are actually that regressive.

    Something to consider.
    The bottom line is that conservatives cant admit to themselves the Evil they have allowed to romp on their watch.

    This is going to hurt.

    If all else fails give the entire forum an enema and start over. All the whining and screeching here will be duplicated in a few hours and nothing ever posted in the past will be immortalized in stone for some malcontent leftie group to smash to bits because it was "offensive"
