just wondering if all pictures were lots again. i have a lot of club members for FSB coming to me and asking what happened. i would like to be able to give them a answer other than "i have no idea"
Well if you consider they host millions of pics for free they will have some problems, if you want a site that does not go down go to picturetrail.com, or imagestation What do you expect for FREE, it sure ain't gunna be perfect. Give Superford a break. Yes, all my pics are gone as of now too, so don't think I am praising a site that has yet to effect me.
Just returned home this afternoon to find that there are database problems (again). The site is currently offline so that user interaction doesn't affect the rebuilding procedure we're doing.
The problem is with a database table that is corrupt. The table that got corrupted is the one that houses all of the pictures, photos, and sounds for the registry.
There is a several step procedure that I will be going through over the next couple hours in an effort to rebuild the table. There are basically 3 components to the database table:
- The data file
- The index file
- The structure file
The data itself is not missing, the part that is affected is the index file which pretty much tells you where the information is. With it being corrupt, it is not reporting that you have any photos in your registry entry even though they are still physically on the server stored in the data file.
This rebuliding process takes a while as the table is enormous. There are multiple levels of the rebuild all depending on the severity of the corruption.
I will report back here when I know more but you can always check the SFO homepage for an ETA update.
