Cyburbia Forums outage on Thursday


Dear Leader
Staff member
The Cyburbia Forums crashed yesterday at about 10:00 Am CDT, and remained down for about seven hours. At first, certain sub-forums couldn't be accessed; about twenty minutes later, the entire board went down.

The Forums went down because the database was corrupted in the process of the Web hosting service upgrade to a new version of MySQL. If you're technically inclined, you can read more about it at http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?threadid=69171 .

The database was repaired on Friday at 5:30 CDT, using a utility from vBulletin. Sorry for the inconvenience.
