As many of you probably noticed we had a few hours of downtime earlier today. It wasn’t anything expected and took my host and I a little while to find the issue in order to correct it.
As it turns out there was a “runaway” process on the server that had completely filled the temporary files directory. There was over 523,000 files in that folder. Since it was filled to the brim there was no where that the database could create and write their temporary files…therefore giving us several ugly database errors.
It looks like we have not gotten everything cleared up and it should be smooth sailing from here… I hope. :)
Now I have to go and catch up on all the news!
