RISE FROM YOUR GRAVE, FREYR
« on: August 17, 2015, 11:08:21 AM »
So freyr.spectere.net (i.e. this server) started vomiting shards of its own pelvis earlier. Not sure how many people noticed it, but it happened. Oh, did it happen.

As I learned today, MySQL doesn't ship with the option to automatically purge binary logs enabled, so the database service kinda ran out of disk space. Oops.

Fortunately, I was smart enough to put the database on a separate disk, so I didn't have to go through the headache of dealing with a full root disk (and considering how poorly systemd handles anything even somewhat out of the ordinary, that likely would have ended very poorly). Unfortunately, that meant that these insanely busy forums went down.

I sincerely apologize to any spambots that were affected by this outage.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

You should use MongoDB instead. It's web scale.
