Potential database corruption.

Post by Mentawl » Mon Jan 21, 2013 4:48 pm

Hi people,

We may have some potential database issues related to the unexpected server downtime last night (from about 7pm Central US time on 20th January). I've sent messages to Spork, but can't be sure there won't be a rollback til he chimes in. Until then, there's a chance operations may not count. Will keep you updated.

Still not heard anything I'm afraid, so the possibility of a rollback is still present.

Heard from Spork a coupl've hours ago via email (I was asleep :P). He's going to take a look at it early his time tomorrow. Hopefully it will just involve a player file restore for the affected players (so far only Volkenfaust and Shadowhawke, that I'm aware of), but there's a chance of further damage to the database, so patience will still be required before a definitive answer can be given.

Ok, Spork has carried out pfile replacement of Volkenfaust and Shadowhawke, from the backup taken on Saturday evening. If anyone else has a corrupted account (and no, losing 7 times in a day doesn't count as corrupted), let us know ASAP.

Volk, Shadow, you're clear to log back in.

It does not look like a more comprehensive rollback is required.

Uh, cancel that, Volk and Shadow - wrong backup was restored. 15 more minutes please!
