sakurakessho: Any Updates?

Any updates at all on the restoration of wiki? There are a few people who commented on the last post wondering if they could lend their talents. And at this point I would think that any help would sorely be appreciated.

Please, don't see this as prodding and just wanting a great thing back so soon. I am terribly lost without wiki.theppn and am just wondering if anything new has happened and what the latest update is.

I keep typing in the URL to go look things up before I remember it's offline @.@;

Thu, Dec. 11th, 2008 10:34 pm (UTC)

I do that all the time...I have tons of pages bookmarked but I forget I can't access any of them. >

I would also like to know how the updats are coming.. just curious. I never realized how many people depended on the wiki until I saw the thread about it on AHS. xD People are going insane!

But, yeah. Take your time guys.. it must be super hard.

might be table corruptions?if it is you can try this method

try first going to innoDB force-recovery mode
then go editing the /etc/my.cnf
and comment innodb_force_recovery = 2 on the title mysqld

Save the settings and restart the mysql.
and start doing mysql dump if possible to save your current sql backup

mysqldump --force --compress --triggers --routines --create-options -uUsername -pPw --all-databases > /home/public_html

now kill the mysqld service

now delete the database directory

the directories can be different depending on what server os you installed but the standard path would be

Since you deleted the database directory u should recreate it using the following commands
mkdir /usr/local/var
chown -R mysql:mysql /usr/local/var
chown -R mysql:mysql /usr/local/var

if you cant find the mysql location just use the command "locate mysql" or "whereis mysql" without the quotes

Now uncomment the line "innodb_force_recovery = 2" that you previously edited on /etc/my.cnf

Start the mysql service again
And now import the sql files that you made backup of

The last part is now flusing ur mysql priveleges
/usr/local/bin/mysqladmin -uroot flush-privileges

nayokokihara: Info?

Any updates at all?

I remember someone saying they wanted to have it up before the end of the year, but theres basically two and a half more weeks before December is over.

I mean, has there been any progress? D: Even just a little?

Sat, Dec. 13th, 2008 02:10 am (UTC)

I was searching and found this?

I'm not sure what it's about as there doesn't seem to be a lot on it at the moment.

Also while I'm here, what happened to mm-bbs? It looks like they lost their hosting or something.

Sat, Dec. 13th, 2008 05:54 am (UTC)

Yeah, projecthello is down too.

Sat, Dec. 13th, 2008 06:47 am (UTC)

R.I.P. wiki.theppn
You've been the best source of J/K/Mandarin-Pop information
I'll sadly miss you

Sun, Dec. 14th, 2008 07:23 pm (UTC)

projecthello is down.

Could my day get any worse? >_>

Based on what I read online, InnoDB tables can be corrupted if there is a high load on the server. Once corrupted they are apparently quite difficult to repair. If there is any way to distribute the storage so there is redundancy, like a RAID, that might be the way to go in the future. For now maybe we should try to grab as much as we can from the Google caches and write some scripts to input the old data into a new database? (Or if you have the raw data maybe we could extract the information from that as well?)

Not sure what exactly needs to be done since I don't know the details, but yes like many other people here I'd love to help out if I could.

any news or updates or anything?

Any updates?

Fri, Dec. 19th, 2008 03:26 pm (UTC)

Sat, Dec. 20th, 2008 09:27 pm (UTC)

Wow, I seriously miss Wiki.ThePPN so much.

Sun, Dec. 21st, 2008 07:42 pm (UTC)

doubt it.

Wed, Dec. 24th, 2008 04:18 am (UTC)

^ I hope it will be. I was hoping it would have been back up before Christmas, but that's in two days, so I don't think I'll be getting that present. xD (Though if somehow it is fixed before 2009, It will be a wonderful surprise.)

Wed, Dec. 24th, 2008 09:29 am (UTC)

YES PLEASE!! T_T i'm dieing slowly but surely... I MISS IT SO MUCH!!!

Fri, Dec. 26th, 2008 10:13 pm (UTC)

please hurry this is driving me crazy.

Sat, Dec. 27th, 2008 05:51 pm (UTC)

well, at least they're trying.

Mon, Dec. 29th, 2008 03:33 am (UTC)
nayokokihara: ??

Could we please have some sort of progress update? x_X; Even if it's something small.

Mon, Dec. 29th, 2008 07:49 pm (UTC)

I'm not complaining but why does it seem like no one cares to give an update? Can't we have some sort of update on the progress? Is there anything being done at all to fix the problem or have you given up? I loved wiki theppn and depended on it with a lot of my Asian music.. For me it was the ultimate English source for Asian information. I even contributed several times and enjoyed it. If the site is not going to be brought back then please let that be known so people don't have to be so concerned anymore. I know it takes time to fix a problem like this but the least you can do for the users who contributed to the site is to give us the gratification of an update

Tue, Dec. 30th, 2008 06:31 am (UTC)

Man the only thing I can say is that I am Lost and I don't know what's hot anymore. We all lost something big hope it comes back up next year!!!!!!!!!!

Wed, Jan. 7th, 2009 02:47 am (UTC)

Omg, you have a SIMON icon. It's good to see another fan every now and then.

Tue, Dec. 30th, 2008 09:51 am (UTC)

Everyone should use the ordinary wikipedia from now. wiki.theppn.org is not reliable any more.. :/


Tue, Dec. 30th, 2008 07:20 pm (UTC)

I wonder how it can be reliable when it's down...

Official wiki is too stict with all those copyrighted matherials. I prefer google and japanese-english dictionary. Rarely helps with korean performers.

Wed, Dec. 31st, 2008 01:04 am (UTC)

There's always this - http://j-ongaku.org/wiki/Main_Page

Dunno if it'll take off though.
