I mutter it to myself nearly every day: the technology is not reliable; you can't count on it.

It's all FM anyway.

ISTR that Google is now downgrading sites that do not do SSL (https:// . . . ), and this site currently doesn't do SSL (and won't, until I move it from OS/2 to Ubuntu, someday).

Database problems: mysqld is trapping and complaining, and the phpbb_sessions table was corrupted. I backed it up and blew that table away, then recreated it.

While the mysqld is now not complaining, it's not stable either. I'll put some time into it today, but I expect lots of downtime coming.

I changed Session Length ("Sessions will expire after this time, in seconds.") from 7200 to 3600 (= one hour; used to be two).

That means if you do nothing on the board for one hour, it will log you out.

I periodically have a problem with the phpbb_sessions table getting corrupted (or something: the database server chokes on it) and reading around a bit, it seems that either periodically zeroing it out and/or reducing the sessions length variable might improve this situation.

Note to self:

truncate nissandiesel_forums.phpbb_sessions;

I have to pick the right database; too many testing and legacy databases hanging around, too easy to pick the wrong one, and wonder why the problem isn't fixed :(

This version of phpbb (3.0.7pl1 ?) still chokes on the sessions data every so often; it just happened again. Solution is to truncate (zero-out) the sessions data. Since this should be temporary data anyway, I wonder that the phpbb code doesn't do proper housekeeping on this itself.

The MasterSwitch Plus (APC 9225) died while I was in Portland, Ore. this weekend. Funny, of all the IT hardware I have, that was about the last thing I'd expect to fail.

It's bypassed for now, and I'm picking up my spare from my brother tomorrow, and have just made an offer on a backup from an eBay seller.

The APC 9225 lets me remotely power-cycle hardware. Of course it died while I was out of state.
