Interactive Site problems

Postby Phoenix10 » Mon Apr 03, 2017 10:37 pm

There is a serious problem going on with the interactive site. This is the message I continue to get when trying to access the page:

"We are sorry, but it was not possible to complete the requested task. The error message we got was:
LoadPageList Failed: Table 'thechang_intstory.pages' doesn't exist

Please click the back button on your browser and try again. If you are still having problems, Querying a MySQL Database with PHP please contact our administrator. Thank you."

Does anyone have any idea what is going on or how to fix it?

Thanks -

I've been encountering this problem too since yesterday evening (about 26 hours ago). I tried to report here but because of my inexperience with the forums it took me long to write and when I tried to submit the forums weren't working anymore either, showing a similar message. When I checked this morning (15 hours ago) the forums worked but the Interactives are still off with the same text Phoenix10 wrote. It repeats almost unaltered in the Recent Changes page and every page I've tried to enter singularly.

Well shit, it's just flat out gone.

There was a problem a couple days ago when the site went down that caused a couple problems on the php side, but I was able to get those fixed and everything came back. I don't know if the intstory database was lost then, or if someone found a way to sneak in a SQL injection (i generally tried to prevent that, but I'm no expert at PHP). I'll see if I can find a way to restore it, there might be a backup on the server.

The forum itself is regularly backed up, so it would be okay if something like this happened.

Good news! The hosting service was able to restore the interactive stories database (which I now made sure to back up!) so it should be up and running.

I really need to make a better version of the site, one that allows for accounts and the like.

All in all, you're just now having problems with the site? That's not too bad.

Yeah, it's cool we got this long without a major hardware issue. :)
