Been working on the land and some of the old databases. Seeing less corruption i may yet be able to save some of the information on them.
Spent a couple of hours checking and optimizing the MG database. Hopefully I’ll weed out whatever is causing the periodic problems.
Tap update scrambled several database rows. Strangely enough the site was still available using tap.
Rebuilt and repaired the database as usual it seems to be taking longer and more attempts per crash. DB checks out fine once everything finally finishes.
I’ll keep monitoring and may end up transferring to another server.
Im still actively looking at searc systems and testing the better ones i find
I have yet to find one that really impresses me.
Another Ohio wet dreary day. I’ll probably just spend it working on the corrupted data bases from the old sites.
I’m still working on the corrupted databases for gg and mg from after the server disaster.
I haven’t forgotten the request for better search methods. I’m still testing a few of them on the test site.
I have a couple of experimental database search bots I am testing. I also have a clone of a couple of the report generators I am working on at this time.
So far I am not impressed with the functionality of any of the above.
On Sept. 10 we had a blip in the database that knocked us off line for around 30 minutes. It required a repair and rebuild of the database.
I am seriously considering switching to MariaDB. The MySQL we currently has had several incidents where i had to rebuild repair the database.
