LPMuds downtime last night
« on: March 12, 2007, 08:22:09 am »
Hey folks,

As some of you already know, there was some unplanned downtime last night.
The DB used by LPMuds.net sometimes (every coupla months or so)
seizes up, and needs a kick to get it going again. This appears to have
been one of those times.

The DB is the same one used by Wolfpaw customers who make
money off their site, so you can rest assured it's not a casual
"I'll get to it when I get to it" thing for Dale. As usual, Dale at Wolfpaw
took care of the  problem as soon as he was aware of it, so we're back online.

Just FYI:
I do daily backups of the DB to a machine separate from the Wolfpaw
server, so in case of disaster, the site can be reconstituted with little delay.

Sorry for the inconvenience to the late night-owls unable to access LPMuds
last night!
