We’ll be staying in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Returning to Melbourne, September 04.

Bye for now. :-)

Boring updates: Database errors on several PRODOS sites

Earlier today, about a dozen PRODOS project sites, including CelebrateCapitalism.com started displaying an error message related to the database.

The THINKER TO THINKER ™ blogs do not seem to be affected.

I’m currently investigating the matter.

This is not related to the new server mentioned earlier, as we’re still on the old server.

Update: Robert Redl of Vienna, Austria (whom I recommend highly as a coder and troubleshooter)has fixed the problem.

I’ve “xxxx”-ed out some of it, but the error message was:

user warning: Can’t create/write to file ‘/tmp/#sql_6528_0.MYD’ (Errcode: 17) query: SELECT DISTINCT(p.perm) FROM role r INNER JOIN permission p ON p.rid = r.rid WHERE r.rid IN (1) in /home/xxxxxxxxxxxx/public_html/includes/database.mysql.inc on line 121.

The solution, as explained by Robert:

MYSQL ERROR MESSAGE

in the /tmp temoprary directory a mysql file was damaged. After removing it and restarting the mysql server the mysql blocking messages are OK now.
