Server crashed but we're back!

By josbeir - Apr 20, 2014

As you may have noticed both our hard drives in our pirmary server broke down (what are the odds?) and we were forced to move the entire project to a new (but better) server.

This meant restoring backups from a point where the drives did not fully corrupt our database. This was somewhere early friday morning. Everything after that is sadly corrupted and not restorable.

One issue that you should check is your settings. Make sure these are still correct (things like dashboard day counts, ..) because that table was damaged the most and a big part had to be restored to default values.

There is one upside, the server is much more powerfull now and should result in a faster and better user experience!

So, I don't know where else to ask - is there anything to do when you see multiple versions of the same episode added to a show?

Hi, I'm sorry to use this post, but I can't use any help or support option in the site. Is the crashed server the reason?

Thanks in advance @josbeir and @lemon.

@Intrepidity my profile is not the channel too discuss this but let me explain:

We investigated AWS (and other cloud sollutions) but it is just to expensive compared to our current plan. Our live db is currently +14gb.

The new server now has 2 SSD drives, is an i7-4770 with 32gb ram.. try to calculate this in AWS with 10k unique sessions / day and you'll see that the price will be sky high...

Also note that our previous server had an uptime of almost 5 years with no single failure and we can safely say that we guaranteed our users with a 98% reachability...

Don't get me wrong.. we see the benefits of cloud infrastructure but with no decent sponsoring we just can't go that way :-)

I know you're all volunteers and I respect the fact that u can't throw buckloads of money at the project, but come on.. a single server that loses data if stuff gets corrupted.. Shove that stuff into an AWS instance or something similar and don't worry about physical infrastructure..

@josbeir @nonoox I have that too, but with an other series:

Didn't realise how much I relied on this website until it went down... Thanks so much, guys!

You guys are the best. This is by far my favorite website. I gotta admit, I was scared shitless when the site 404'd. I'm going to make a paypal account this week just so I can donate. I have been using this website for years now and it's about goddamn time.

Thank heavens, you are back!!! The break made me realize that I need this website like air.

Defoil (Apr 21, 2014)

Man I love this community! Look at all the positive reactions! And rightly so! Love the work you guys do! Keep up the good work!

Awesome to have the site back so fast and thanks for informing and updating us :) You do an amazing job with this site, thank you!

Ah, Oxygen!

Trilosodon (Apr 21, 2014)

I use this site several times a day every single day, but the server being down for even that short time really made me realise how much I rely on this site. Thanks for sorting it out so quickly :D

Thanks guys!

I'm so glad the site is back and working! Thanks for all the hard work, even over the Easter weekend!

LukeCarrier (Apr 21, 2014)

Thank you for your quick response! This site was missed even in the few hours in which it was unavailable ;)

josbeir (Apr 21, 2014)

@nonoox thats weird, we'll check it out

nonoox (Apr 21, 2014)

Hi guys, thanks for the quick fix ! I don't know if it's related but some shows now look disconnected from their episodes. For instance in my "Show list" page, the next episode for the series "New Girl" is said to be Season 52, Show 122, when I click on this link I'm redirected to the show "ABC News Queensland".

Sorirc (Apr 21, 2014)

happy website's back!! Thnx for all your hard work.

manuela782 (Apr 21, 2014)

Thank you for fixing the problem, I would be lost without this website!

Solid (Apr 21, 2014)

I was so lost. What to do? What episode? When does it start? The hell I've been through today, you won't believe it ;). Anyhow, thanks guys, appreciate the work !
