I really wasn't part of this... it was more of a "Hey Larry, could you do me a favor..." sort of thing. Shovenose and Topcat were the ones who deserve credit.

Good job! And to the admins and moderators that have to deal with this. I know what it's like my Synonlogy diskstation crashed couple weeks back and I had replace everything backed up from external hard drives. Since it's a mess SHR raid system I feel your pain. It took 2 weeks to restore 10tb of crap. Well done!

Can't access User CP. Site hangs on and on and on and on and on and on and on... you get the point. It's really annoying. I accessed it ONCE this morning, and I haven't been able to access it since. >

Funny... it seems you are the only one with this issue. I'm able to access it OK. Can a few other people check for me, please?

Looks like the same thing here!

*-Wonders if the new hosting provider is an asshole and has hardware issues...

*-And wonders if the database error earlier is someone at the hosting provider F-ing up the permissions intentionally...

Still not working. Takes forever to process only to get a 500 server error.

Edit- seconded on the CP not working... seems to be the same issue.

Whatever is causing the forever-loading and then 500 error'ing User CPs and Private Message pages is crashing the MySQL service after enough people try to load it. The problem is I'm unable to replicate it from my end - weird. Well, still working on it...

Alright, I believe i found the problem... tuned some things in MySQL - could anybody who was having the problem with user CP/private messages before, check again, and report back if its OK?

Thanks...

They'll be back in a couple days. The Private messages table in the database was the only one that was damaged during the transfer so until I have time to try to copy it again from the old server and repair it simply truncating the pm table and disabling PM feature was the fastest way to get the forum running again.

Just asking, but when you knew it will be a nightmare, why have you not just downloaded everything to a hard drive and sent it via UPS or whatever? My estimate is it would be like 5times faster…no? Using cable is not always the best option…

Is it virtualized over some redundant HW now? You implied last time about that being standard by some other providers. Srsly, no offense man, but I don't care what standard is there in that "advanced" US of A. Here in CZ (and we are usualy considered east europe by big ass managers) no hosting provider (maybe besides some garage amateurs) would dare to offer ANY service which is NOT virtualized over SEVERAL INDEPENDENT SERVERS in 2016. Exactly for that reason that one may die any second every day (even brand new one) and the service MUST be running I am just asking…
