Database server blues...

As I'm sure some of you may have noticed MMORPG.com was down for a few hours today.  For the 5th time in just over a year since we've been running it our quad processor database server crashed and lost the site data.  This means we had to restore from backups created at 3am early this morning forcing us to lose about 10 hours of data.  We lost a few blog posts, lots of forums posts and user signups not to mention game ratings and game hypes and other miscellaneous data entered here by users.

 

Well 5 times is 5 times too many and we've decided to look for some new hardware to run MMORPG.com's database on.  For now the database is running on a temporary server until we get the new hardware installed and running.  So there might be some site slowness over the next week while we get it sorted out.

 

We apologize for the inconvenience caused to our users and especially the ones that take the time to express themselves in the forums and here in the blogs.  We're dedicated to fixing this issue for good and preventing these losses of data from occurring again.
