To begin, all seems to be fine now, but...

The BB was behaving strangely yesterday, went down completely, then came back up, working, but a bit patchy. I couldn't get access to any of the diagnostics on the database or the BB admin panel. Was a bit concerned that we were going to lose stuff.

I had a final go at running a database check, left it for a few hours and came back to find it completed finally, saying ok. The various ok messages were a bit misformatted, and in the midst of them was something about a server restart. Don't know if it really refered to a full reboot of the server, but since then stuff seems to have fully recovered.

To make sure I've updated us from PhpBB3 3.0.2 to 3.0.4, which of course needs to be done anyway. Update seems to have gone fine, but have a look incase anything is astray. The registration mod is still in place but I'm not sure about others.

Phew.

well done for fixing it Dunc. Without the BB to pass the time yesterday I had to do some actual work which meant dealing with really horrible and ungrateful students, which made me nearly quit my job If i quit my job I would be skint and on the streets with no money and only a bottle of meths to keep me warm, whilst i would be staring at all the evil students walking passed me wearing their pink polo shirts and using their Blackberries to phone up SAAS to ask for more money. Without the BB...well...i could die! Thanks for sorting it out.

Someone should make a backup of the bb content though

Oh I did, that was the first thing. But we should do it regularly (and frequently).
I'd volunteer but I know fine well I'm hopeless at such things.
