When the site goes down/bills are not paid, let's all meet at a second forum so I can get my fix. Any suggestions (I'm down for the Sailor Moon site but it's bloody hard to get registration approved).

I'm addicted to this site, don't ask me why.

The other option is that I exchange phone numbers with Todd and call him until the site is fixed and his wife gets mad.

I suggest you pick up a secondary bad habit.

Like cocaine.

Or a gaming addiction. Thats what i did.

I have been thinking about this as well. I will try to put up a backup site somewhere. I am hoping Phrost gives me a server control panel account so I can reboot / troubleshoot mysql when it has issues and get it back up faster.

You know you can email me at any time. I sent you my work address at some point. I am addicted to checking my work email. And this site. Phone is fine too, although I don't have time to talk very often.

I didn't mean that you had to fix the problem. Yes, still have your email and will shoot you a line, just know how busy you are. I'm getting all choked up now, can't post.

You could put up a monitoring server to detect when the site is down and notify various folks via email/cell/whatever.

Hell, how about a script on the server that restarts MySQL if it has been unresponsive for more than a minute. Not that hard to do. Most of the time when the site is down it is a db error.

You could do that, but you should consider what happens when rebooting doesn't fix the problem, and how to escalate when it does.

The question is, why does that MySQL instance keep dying?

Is it shared with other apps ?

That's why having access to server logs would be nice.

How is it that you have no such access?

I only have access to the vb control panel and the limited functionality that has.

There might be a CGI shell interface. Ask Phrost.

Cool. 4 people who can whine to each other when sociocide is down.

I think the controls are fairly self explanatory, but ping me if something isn't.

Anyways this runs on AWS cloud (which I have always wanted to try) so it should have great uptime.
