sakurakessho: wiki be down, yo

Yeah.. pathetic title is excusable.

But in all seriousness, I'd love to know why wiki is down? Is it because someone forgot to pay the bill or there's not enough money to pay the bill. If that's teh case then we need to get some money together.

Teh internets feels dead without our beloved wiki T_T

(Anonymous): the server crashed and then .....

The server crashed at around midnight japan time, when i woke up in the morning I was informed that it was not working like it should and logged in to take a look. the server was not responding so I switched on a replacement but the database is hating me right now.

The problem is that the DB server appears to think it cant support InnoDB tables anymore, this means none of the backups can be loaded. I am attempting to find a way to persuade it to stop being a bitch but it just wont budge. If I cant get it running the wiki is dead, I just have no data and no way to extract it. every backup I have for the past 4 months is refusing to load, and I just cant see why.

Ignorance maybe.

But sometimes problems like that are solved (on windows machines) my reinstalling whatever program reads the InnoDB tables. Maybe that would help? IDK

This is most troubling.

I can offer no specific advice without seeing the problem firsthand, but if you do in fact have backups, is there any way you could post one publicly to solicit help in troubleshooting? I understand you would probably need to sanitize them of sensitive user information, but if all else fails this might be a good way of getting help.

that is a possibility, but first things first.

I am trying bringing the files backhome and see if I can get them to load on the old server.

I'm sure you've exhausted lots of mean to try to get it up, but have you checked various irc channels on freenode?

For instance checking with #linux or #mysql there might give you some sound advice, things you can check or things you can try. Best of luck anyway :)
