Hey guys, half of yesterday I was getting a screen that was saying JDMST was having database issues. Anyone else get the same?

A whole day being unable to access JDMST properly. How did the 10,000 members survive?! :lol:

HAHA - spot on guys. We have still got to do the move to the new server (already paid for and started months ago now). I've paid a developer to get a good back-up system in place for us too (24hr back-up plan) and yes we still need to upgrade to VB4 as well (once the move is done).

its just the front page. If you still want to use the forum just type

forum.jdmstyletuning.com

always works for me when the front page is down :)

You might have encountered a different problem, Panda. The database issue being described was specific to VBulletin.

Mine still doesn't work..Even today, but other people seem to get on fine?

I'm currently not at home, so on someone elses connection.. I'm assuming it's issues with my carrier ? I'm with TPG.

If not - What can be the problem ? I couldn't log onto JDMST for the past 48 hours and counting.. I tryed to log on about 2 hours ago at home and it didn't work.

The home page works; but as soon as I click on forum, I just get the 403 Forbidden Error.

Just bare with us guys, there's bound to be a few issues here and there but the move is done, that's the main thing! JDMST should load faster now!

Faster is always good...gave the server some more mods? What does it run now? :P

Anyone else unable to change avatars?

If i try through a photobucket link, the error is -

Upload failed due to failure writing temporary file.

If i try through the file on my PC, the error is -

Unable to move/copy file

This is on google chrome, same response through IE

Looking into it guys.

and yes we still need to upgrade to VB4 as well (once the move is done).

The great thing about JDMST is that it loads quicker than any other forum I visit, and the design is clean and minimal. I hope those qualities are kept when the upgrade takes place :)

That it does. I can use it easily on capped internet (except of course for anything in the appearance gallery :lol:)

Justin Fox
04-10-10, 04:09 PM
It'll always be pimp guys don't worry! VB4 let's iPhone users use tapatalk too!

PS: Avatar issues, can someone please try now? Let me know!

OK guys will keep at it, sit tight.

I dunno if it's just me, But when I try get onto JDMST via iPhone, It redirects me straight to wordpress blog =/. I've tried forum.jdmstyletuning.com too and the same thing happens.

Edit, seems to work via forum.jdm now :)

Justin Fox
05-10-10, 08:41 PM
Yup it's a wordpress iPhone plugin. Not sure I'm liking it myself. What do you guys think?

not though it would make a difference, but when trying to upload the avatars all I get is 'unable to move/copy file' or 'Invalid File'.

we're back in the game.

props JF

Justin Fox

Super stressful!!!!! Will sort avatars out tomorrow! I thought we had lost it all today!

markie
06-10-10, 10:39 PM
I feel you man.

What was wrong with it? "server down"

Justin Fox
07-10-10, 06:37 AM
The posts file was corrupt and there was no way I could repair it via VBulletin. Every time I tried to repair it the whole server ran out of ram because JDMST is so huge!

Justin Fox
07-10-10, 06:37 AM
PS: Try avatars now guys.

oh and theres 1 or 2 pages missing from the october photography thread (http://forum.jdmstyletuning.com/showthread.php?t=28627) lol! and i suspect other threads would have suffered the same fate? its like a week of posts have been misplaced or something

Justin Fox
13-10-10, 07:34 AM
Yup we're done the move but sadly it's not gone as smooth as I was hoping it would. We've got some corruption happening and the only way to fix it is to get the help of VBulletin themselves.

:/

I've paid for an upgrade and in doing so I've now got support again from VB. I've got to upgrade this version of the forum software to the latest V3 before I can upgrade to V4 where we will lose all of our styling (JDM TUNING?!) so making the new VB4 forum look like this forum is going to be one massive pain in the butt.

Fun times ahead! So sorry guys!

markie
13-10-10, 07:37 AM
We're up and running once again...

Thanks JF

was about to say that too

Justin Fox

Not really, up and running for a bit, then we've got to take it down again for the upgrades!

Justin Fox
13-10-10, 12:23 PM
OK almost there!

Yeah I kinda realised when the site didn't work. Oh well props still goes to you my friend for giving your time to fix the site :)

Regarding the avatars: Justin, is the folder the avatars upload to set to 777?

Justin Fox
18-10-10, 07:13 AM
I did do that but for some reason it's still not working. It's the least of my worries to be honest. Just avatars. I'm more concerned with the posts table getting corrupt! So far so good. We will move over to VB4 soon and yes I'll install tapatalk too.

Justin Fox
18-10-10, 07:32 AM
OK should be working now (forum was in safe mode!) and also try tapatalk iPhone users.

Suuuuper slow tonight huh? Will speak to dev guy tomorrow.

09-11-10, 10:37 PM
Slow for me too, thought it was because of my downloads but i stopped that and it's still slow.

Awesome work on the move though, one thing i'm not used to yet is the notification location. I scroll down almost immediately and miss it.

Will the issues for the past week be a regular occurance ?

We needed to make a new JDMST channel on facebook and speak there due to JDMST crashing so frequently lol.
