Oops... I broke the web server

Post by Arokhs Twin »

OK it's my turn to break something now...

I was pruning some spam accounts then backing up the server's databases and file system when it hung booting me out of the admin console and requiring a restart of the web server services. The SQL database server would not respond after restart so that instance was restarted too but it left the database corrupt. I've restored the backup it downloaded before it shit the bed and it checks out OK; everything seems to be working. If anyone's recent posts are missing though you know why. :roll:
