GreekChat Outage Today

For a good part of the day today (and possibly part of yesterday) GC was offline due to multiple crashed database tables. I usually check GC's status on a regular basis but found out sooner thanks to SAEalumnus emailing me about it.

Unsure exactly what caused the issue. The server did reboot around 24 hours ago so it may have been a momentary power disruption which caused crashed tables and/or corruption issues in several databases.

In any case, I spent the majority of the day & evening backing up before and after checking then repairing the database issues.

Everything seems back in order now, but if anyone notices something that is not functioning correctly with GC please let me know and I will check into it.

But in looking at all the sudden "new" user names listed (on the left in the box) on GC right now, Jon and the mods may have their hands full repairing any damage or multi-posts the spammers can muster. Good luck to our wonderful mods!

John, thank you for all your hard work in keeping this site up and running. I know firsthand what a PITA database corruption is - even with a well-planned backup-and-restore plan, the restore is no picnic.
