Sorry to edit this post.  It wouldn't let me post my own message.
The site's software is in need of an upgrade. I contacted Defect via SMS to get the username that I need in order to accomplish this.  Hopefully he'll reply in a timely manner.
BizB!

Hey gang,
Sorry for the hassles. It looks like there was an issue with the upgrade. All of the source files are up to date, but somehow the db didn't get updated. I put in a ticket with SMF and should receive a response soon.

On an optimistic note, it's still showing the normal amounts of threads and posts (if not the content itself) so  :shamrock:
Title: Re: Wha' Happen?

Friday the 13th.  :uncertain:

I don't have Defect's email addy. It looks like he hasn't been online since the 11th, so if one of y'all have his address, please let him know. It looks like Biz has an address listed in his profile, so I'll go ahead and let him know.

I don't know if this post is even going to work - I can't view the thread after making the first post.

Assuming this post makes it and you can read it, I think I fixed the problem.

It looks like the messages table somehow got corrupted.

Initially I thought it was related to the SMF upgrade, but it looks like that had nothing to do with it. The upgrade doesn't even touch the db.

Anyway, I restored the latest backup (from 4am or 5am this morning) and "repair"ed the table and it seems to be working so far. Let me know if you have any more issues. Unfortunately any posts made after the backup script ran are lost for good.

My email is psidefect AT gmail DOT com.

Save it. It's almost always the best way to get in touch with me. I don't want to post my cell number here, but if you PM me, I'll gladly give you that info too.

Quote
A saint (from the Latin sanctus) in Christianity is a human being who has been called to holiness. The term is used differently by various denominations, with some, such as the Anglicans, distinguishing between Saints and saints. In high-church contexts, such as Roman Catholicism or Anglo-Catholicism, a Saint is generally one to whom has been attributed (and who has generally demonstrated) a high level of holiness and sanctity.

Umm... I don't think so  :lol:

How about a pagan god?

Post by: Psidefect on March 22, 2009, 01:04:25 PM
Aw, shucks.  :shy:  :smooch:

Anyway, the brief outage today was apparently from a bunch of hung processes in the db server.

I don't think anything was lost, but let me know if you notice anything missing or not working properly.

The latest backup is good, so if something is missing, we should be able to get it back (as long as it was posted before 4am EDT today).

Yeah, I'm not sure why, but it seems easier for me to jump in to tumblr and twitter when I have time than it is around here.

It's not intentional and there's no reason other than flow, so please don't think I'm any less committed to BC. It's just extremely easy to communicate over there for some reason.

Anyway, the outage was pretty much the same thing as last time. Everything should be up and running as normal. Let me know if you have any issues.

And for any of you that haven't found me over there and want to:

btw, don't go by that MSRP. I don't know where the hell they get that number, but it doesn't reflect reality in any way and now I feel kind of like a douche for linking to it.

So tacky.

Hey Gang,

I repaired all of the db tables and cleared out some of the larger logs hoping that takes care of the issue.

I'm really sorry I couldn't get to it sooner. I'll try to check in more often. Things are busy right now, but I'm hoping summer won't be. Anyway, email me if the problem doesn't go away or if any other problems come up. psidefect at gmail dot com

PS - Thanks for the heads up, Dali.

Title: Re: Wha' Happen?
Post by: Psidefect on November 09, 2009, 09:26:13 AM
Hey Gang,

There seems to be some problem with the database server. It's creating too many connections or something. It's not a data issue (so it's not losing data, it's just bogged down).

The host is working on it and I keep bugging them to restart it when I notice it's down.

Anyway, that's what those connection problems are that you may be seeing on and off. Hopefully not for too long. No need to panic.

Don't know, but I'm going to go ahead and guess just them.

Is that the mysql config file?

The weird thing is we're having exactly the same issue (at least I'm pretty sure) with one of our sites here at work.

That makes me think it's some sort of attack on shared hosting services or something, but who knows.

Anyway, I bitched enough that they kicked us up to the next level of "support". So there's that. :eyeroll:

Yeah.  It'd be in /etc or /var/db/mysql or /usr/local/etc.

The default mysql settings don't scale well.

Thurston's rich, the only one who always gets laid (they have separate hammocks, I know, but still), and all three women on the island act like they love him.

And both of the younger women hang all over Gilligan when they're in the mood.

Jonas is the unfortunate player in that little drama.  His repetoire of sexual expression consists only of repressed symbolic acts, of which there are basically two:  Taking off his hat . . . and hitting Gilligan with it. 
Title: Re: Wha' Happen?
Post by: Hedaira on December 28, 2009, 02:41:32 AM
The Captain totally spoots all over Gilligan while he's sleeping. It's a hazard of having the lower hammock and it's why he doesn't hear so well. Gunk in the ears.
Title: Re: Wha' Happen?
Post by: Hedaira on December 28, 2009, 02:43:26 AM
And yeah, I was only looking to use spoot in a sentence. Still, there's no denying that Gilligan is a product of some very, very wrong abuse.

If anyone runs into any issues durring the day, feel free to email me at my username @gmail.com or my real firstname.lastname@gmail.com, both will get to me before most other forms of communication. I'll take a closer look into WTF happened when I get home.

I think I told you before that all you have to do is nod sagely and raise a brow when that happens.

The host is failing it's attempts to impress me.

There seems to be some other domain on the same box that keeps getting hit with a DDoS (at least this is what they are telling me). This brings the whole box to it's knees and BC starts to shit the bed (this is usually what is happening when you get those "can't connect to the database server" messages).

Getting a better host is on my todo list, but I just haven't/won't have enough time to deal with it right now.

I apologize for the annoyances, but hopefully I can find a solution soon.

Hosting recommendations are always welcome, btw. If you've had/have a good experience with one, let me know.

I've got something sticking on the left control key, which is fine except - I never use the right one, even when I should. No, there couldn't be a correlation in there.

The what's new sometimes misses new posts that the icons show are there. It seems to be a timing issue, in that the posts were being created when I last asked for the list of new items, but the posts haven't actually been filed. Uh... example:

9:00:00 - Psi starts replying to a thread (#777)
9:00:01 - I get list of new posts
9:00:10 - Psi finishes and his reply is put onto the thread
9:15:01 - I come back and list new posts.

at that 9:15, the icon will have changed to show an unread post in a thread, since vBulletin knows that I haven't read post 777 of that thread. But "new posts" doesn't catch it, because I'd already listed post 777 in the earlier search, and it just happened to be null.
Title: Re: Wha' Happen?

I have the exact same problem with my left Ctrl key on my ThinkPad, actually.  For the same reason.  It's not impossible to live with, though.

I have a similar issue with the latest-posts thing, in that it often puts me in the thread that has new posts but starts me exactly one post too low.  Kind of weird, but no big deal since I usually have to scroll up to remember exactly what we were talking about anyway.

And I just generally can't type properly these days.  THAT is annoying, but I'll live.

I will try to address the smiley 'more' button issue. I either didn't know about it or totally forgot. Either way, SEND PMs PEOPLE! I may not see shit mentioned in threads. You're always welcome to email me too (my username here at gmail).

Hacked? The site, or the server?

I believe it was a session exploit in php. Lots of new .htaccess files and arbitrarily numbered php files. All of the numbered php files and many of the standard SMF files had a nasty eval(base64_decode()) blocks. I decoded one of them and it looked like it stored a file down in the themes folder as style.css.php or something like that. At that point, I just deleted all the forum files and reinstalled from a fresh download. I ran mysql's repair function on the error log because mysql was complaining. I thought I grabbed all the avatars as well as the attachments and smilies, but I think I fucked that up, obvs.

Anyway, keep posting any issues you guys may have.

Actually, since it came back it always displays as slightly too wide for my screen, so that I have to use the horizontal scrollbar to see the righthand edge of posts.

Oh, except in the Post Reply form page, which is the right width.

:shrug:  But so minor.
Title: Re: Wha' Happen?
Post by: mo on August 24, 2010, 04:46:49 PM
Huh? When you make the window smaller, the type doesn't reflow?

Like this:

(http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q124/mo_d_/Picture2.png)

What is your display resolution?
Title: Re: Wha' Happen?
Post by: random axe on August 24, 2010, 05:22:05 PM
Display resolution here is 1024x768, but this happens no matter what machine I use, and they don't all have the same display settings.  It's always about 5% too wide, even if I change the window size.

It occurs to me that I haven't tried viewing with other browers or without logging in.  Hang on.

Seems to be an Opera thing, which is still weird because I don't have the same version of Opera on all those machines.  :shrug:
Title: Re: Wha' Happen?
Post by: random axe on August 24, 2010, 05:27:40 PM
On further further evaluation, it doesn't happen unless the page has a wide avatar on it.  I'm not sure of the threshold, but if there are no avatars wider than 100 pixels, fine; 150 pixels is confusing Opera somehow but didn't used to.

Maybe it'll fix itself, too.  Who knows, eh?


Yep, in Firefox, those wider avatars don't quite display fully, and there's a horizontal scroll bar under the wide avatars instead.  It's some kind of rendering error, though, because the amount of avatar that doesn't display without scrolling is maybe 5%, too.  Which is to say that the amount of scrolling is proportional to the size of the element the browser decides is too big, not proportional to the size of the display.  I bet if I go home and compare side by side on two different-sized displays with different resolutions, there'll be more gray space, wider horizontal spacing of elements on the wider display.

Weird.  It doesn't need horizontal scroll bars in either case.  Even this display is wide enough for the wider avatars plus plenty of comment text.
Title: Re: Wha' Happen?

I tried Opera at that resolution and I'm not seeing the problem, but this does sound familiar - like something that's happened here before...  :hmm:

I was just looking at the beginning of the "Avatar" thread, where Defect changed the size limits of avatars, and that's when everyone was having problems. He made some kind of adjustment to fix the problem. That was like 3 years ago, so he probably wouldn't even remember what he did.

My avatar is 150 pixels wide and a whopping 274kb, which is the biggest bandwidth hogger I've ever used here.

Is it causing problems for anybody?  I have no qualms about changing it if need be.

Dunno, I didn't read about those.

But yeah, I got the PHP error. With CFML, it means that the server didn't know what to do with the file so it offers it to the user because maybe the humans are more intelligent. Please note that this behavior was designed by a human, not a computer.

No, you made perfect sense.  I was just joking because I got a blank page instead of the dialog box, so I was saying maybe the server thought I was too dumb to bother giving the file to . . . .

It's doing a thing for me where each page loads and then immediately reloads.  Opera treats them as separate pages with the same URL, oddly enough -- it takes two Go Back commands to get to the last actual page back.

Weird.

Seriously. Mentioning something in this thread will not get my attention. I'm not around consistently enough to see this stuff and keep on top of it.

Hmof, what thing with the blank page? When does this happen? Any specific conditions that you've noticed?

Hajen, you just get a blank page when you post? Are the posts getting submitted? Is this every time you post or only in certain circumstances?
Title: Re: Wha' Happen?

Title: Re: Wha' Happen?

This turned out to be a server issue and not an SMF issue (the blank pages).

My host tells me everything is back to normal, and for the most part that seems to be true, but I'm not seeing avatars atm. I'm too tired to deal with it now, but I will look into it more closely later today.

I will be checking in on this thread, but please send me a PM or an email if you are having any issues.

I think the "take me back to X Page after posting" function is what's borked, FWIW. That blank page only happens after posting. If I click Back and Preview Post, I can see my post just fine.

This is what the URL looked like for when this post blanked out.

Title: Re: Wha' Happen?
Post by: Psidefect on August 30, 2010, 05:49:46 PM
Ok, I think I found the issue. Some of this was my fault.

The latest issues (blank page when posting or logging out and attachment wankery) were caused by a debug output I had put in that wasn't allowing redirects to happen after it (basically, it caused problems once the other stuff was fixed). I removed the output and I think it's redirecting normally now.

Is anyone else still (as in since this post) seeing blank pages or having other trouble?

I can't speak for anyone else, but I've been way busy between work and trying to fix my furnace.  It's c-c-c-cold in here at night without, uh, heat.  I need an electric blanket that goes to 11.  Mine gets warm, but even on its warmest setting it's not what you'd call hot.  I used to own one that wouldn't burn you but would certainly get too warm to be comfortable for more than maybe five minutes, at its highest setting.

Of course, if I could just buy a proper blanket around here . . . but you just can't.  I'll have to order something online when I have some extra $$$.

There are extensions/add-ons that can add that functionality, but SMF forums can't by default, no.  We use one over at teh Geekery (OMFGLOL) that flags likely spammer accounts and holds them in a queue pending moderator approval before their accounts are activated.  It works pretty slick.  It sharply curtailed the massive spammer tsunami that had been overwhelming us.

I believe it is called "Stop Spammer". I think it might actually be native to SMF 2.0, which just came out. I plan on installing it soon, but the server probably needs a good 25 to 30 minutes to handle all the database stuff.

I think Stop Spammer was the name of the one I tried to install. I think there was an issue with the db version or something. I'll take a look at SMF 2.0. I thought that was still in beta, but it might be a better option.

Yeah, it looks like it was released on the 11th or so. I thought I had looked when I was trying to install Stop Spammer, but I must have not registered that it was done. I thought it was close, but not ready yet.

Anyway, I'm going to download it and probably try to install it in the wee hours tonight or tomorrow night depending on how involved the install looks.

I did, but I think it changed the server timezone (may or may not be due to daylight savings). I set it to an hour later. I think that will make it correct for everyone without them having to reset their timezone. ...I think.

SMF still limits gender to just male and female in the profiles. And they're still missing a slot for species.

Other than those, I don't see issues. I'm not having Talix' problem at all but I have only tried on one from all my platforms + browsers yet.
Title: Re: Wha' Happen?
Post by: random axe on June 29, 2011, 11:31:38 AM
I was having a problem with the layout, etc, but after reading the stuff here I tried turning JS on, and I got some more options.  I set the theme to "Core", which solved most of the layout issues, whether JS is on or off.  It's fine.

The only hitch is that if I set the smilies thing to the BC set, they don't show up above the write-a-new-post box unless I turn JS on.  That doesn't really matter.

Ok, I reset everyone to the new theme as I'm not sure the core and babylon themes work with the new version.

Hopefully that will at least make everyone's experience consistant. I apologize for the confusion.

Axe, I actually thought of you when I saw the javascript menus. I knew it was going to be an issue (and really, it should degrade more gracefully, but that's another convo). Hopefully it is still usable without js or at least the js behaves nicely. I will look for a non-javascript theme. I'm sure other people will be looking for one.

I will try to be around today to help anyone with any issues their having with the new board.

Title: Re: Wha' Happen?
Post by: Dr. Leonard HmofCoy on June 29, 2011, 02:25:08 PM
Yep, core works fine. I like it better than curve. No problems changing it though. I think the menus and stuff are better in this version?
Title: Re: Wha' Happen?
Post by: random axe on June 29, 2011, 02:52:01 PM
With core, the lines of text are sometimes vertically crowded.  The Babylon one seems a little better.  I seem to have lost the smilies bar altogether (even with JS :shrug:), but I know most of them anyway.
Title: Re: Wha' Happen?
Post by: Dr. Leonard HmofCoy on June 29, 2011, 03:01:59 PM
:hmm:

Go to profile : modify profile : look and layout and look right below the place where you set the theme, there's a little pulldown menu for smilies: pick "bizarreconfessions" - then save, go back, reply to a post. I see the bar of smilies and the "more" popup works.
Title: Re: Wha' Happen?
Post by: random axe on June 29, 2011, 03:54:16 PM
Yeah . . . not for me.  I tried all the options there, I think -- forum default, default, bizarreconfessions. 

Also, I get weird partial information on several parts of the screen -- words are missing.  On the main page:

- At the top, it says "Hey, random axe, 117 __, 0 are new."  The missing word is 'messages'?  Or 'posts'?

- The search bar near the top has a blank space, a colon, the search text box, and then a blank button.

- The Key Stats box in the upper right says "132,077 2,123 67  : motest".  This partial information is repeated below, but with the numbers in a different order.  I think I could guess / remember what the numbers mean.

- Down where it shows who's currently online, it doesn't say 'Currently Online', or anything like that, and there are weird blank spaces.

Etc.  Some bugs in there, but nothing that's actually causing me any trouble at the moment.  Hang on a bit and I'll screenshot what my Post Reply screen looks like.
Title: Re: Wha' Happen?
Post by: random axe on June 29, 2011, 03:56:54 PM
It looks like this.  Spartan!  But functional.

Er, that's with JS and, as it happens, the Babylon theme, but the theme doesn't change the salient points.

Double-er, JS doesn't change those issues, either, for that matter.

I talked to :hoss: on email. The hosting site had a disaster. They ahd to restore everything from backup. In alphabetical order, so they didn't get to "psidefect" until recently.

Anyone notice any problems with the site? Missing posts that happened after the restore point? With the site being relatively quiet I guess we're not at risk for losing a lot.
