Joey's websites are down again

If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it goes here.

Whevever I try to access the forums, I get this message:
General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

Connection refused [2002]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.

I guess the forums are still undergoing maintenance or that it takes a while to install a backup.

Well, even if this forum is basically dead, we can still use it to communicate with each other when Joey's forum goes down.

Well, looks like even the SMBX home page and Stardust Fields IRC are down now (for the IRC, you can still see the login page but it will fail to join the actual IRC server). I wonder what's going on?

Good news guys:
It works!

This is the default web page for this server.

The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet.

However, due to nothing being on the server, it brings up a 404 error when you try to go to the forums.

At least we know the site-running software is working.

If it wasn't working, I think we'd have gotten an error message from the hosting provider.

Yeah, all of SMBX.org and Stardust Fields IRC are completely down right now, except for the SMBX home page which just displays a generic "it works!" message. I hope Joey figures this out soon.

<AeroMatter> so uh
<AeroMatter> /what happened/
<Jason_> joey's server shit itself again
<Jason_> i sent him info for a new server
<Jason_> he could use one of mine
<Jason_> definitely seems silly to keep using whatever host he's using now -- clearly something is not working
<AeroMatter> clearly
<AeroMatter> everything was wiped earlier (including archives) and only the default index pages were available
<Jason_> i heard
<Jason_> well
<Jason_> AeroMatter: i offered him a server
<Jason_> maybe he'll use it
<AeroMatter> hopefully he does
<Jason_> bear in mind that, if what happened to joey happened to me, i would flip out and never use the host again
<Jason_> ever
<AeroMatter> or at least hosts IRC on it separately so everything doesn't blackout
<Jason_> i need tosleep
<Jason_> night
<AeroMatter> night
<Joey> <AeroMatter> /what happened/
<Joey> everything
<Joey> like
<Joey> it started out with part of the smbx forums posts table being corrupted/deleted
<Joey> and then now i'm trying to restore a backup from yesterday to get the site files and most of the databases back
<Joey> i don't know if this will work, i just know it's taking a long ass time
<Joey> things that will be safe when all of this is over:
<Joey> - all midnight reality website data, including SF and SMBX
<Joey> like, not databases, just the website pages
<Joey> - configurations for webserver/mailserver/etc., so i can get things running as quick as possible
<Joey> - irc network/services data is intact except for anything that was done in the last, like 36 hours
<AeroMatter> what are the chances that the forum can't be recovered?
<Joey> well
<Joey> it can go two ways
<Joey> 1. i restore yesterday's data, so we have all members and stuff but the post table is missing a chunk from this month, potentially corrupted
<Joey> 2. my provider reloads a backup that they have, assuming it works this time, but then we run the risk of losing more forum stuff but for less time and hopefully no corruption
<AeroMatter> hm
<Joey> so then what i know for sure is that all posts made from saturday to yesterday will probably be gone either way
<Joey> and what i also know for sure is that i'm going to make it so that this /cannot/ happen again
<AeroMatter> as in changing providers, and more frequent backups?
<Joey> probably both, but at the very least the latter
<Joey> my worry with switching providers is that i have a good deal with the one i have
<AeroMatter> where do you keep your back ups btw
<AeroMatter> you have an archive page, and a whole alternate forum
<AeroMatter> and those were both on the server
<Joey> yeah that was just a backup of those sections though
<Joey> like, specifically smbx forum data and smbx wiki data from two distinct points in time
<Joey> that i loaded into those locations/database myself
<Joey> in terms of "where do i keep backups"
<Joey> i really don't make enough backups to have a centralized location for them! however, my provider has a quick backup feature that i can use once a day that basically tarballs my entire system and stores it in a folder
<Joey> so those show up there
<Joey> but i'll develop a better backup system
<AeroMatter> as for corrupted posts, will that break anything if you decide to go that route
<AeroMatter> and breaking as in site breaking stuff
<Joey> probably not. we'd just have to delete a lot of topics
<Joey> but i would rather load a somewhat earlier backup that has more posts even if it means our last week's worth of account registrations are gone
<AeroMatter> i guess that would do the least amount of damage yeah
<AeroMatter> oh and btw you should take jason up on his server offer for irc since everyone was in the dark all day because irc was down
<AeroMatter> there was a few people who went to nsmbx but that's it
