some parts of the toolserver db appear to be corrupt, or at least not
People are complaing that my Gallery.php tool has started to report many
images as "orphans" even though they are correctly categorized. I
investigated a bit and found that there appear to be a lot of entries
missing from commonswiki_p.categorylinks; Try this query on the
toolserver db, and then on a live db, for comparison:
SELECT cl_to as cat FROM categorylinks where cl_from = 793855;
(categories for http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:ButtonOrange.svg)
that returns five categories on the live server, but nothing on the
toolserver. Not... good...
Any idea what could have cause this, or how to fix it? How to avoid such
stuff in the future, or at least detect it early?
Maybe we could check the size of some tables every so often or something...
usually, each user's MySQL database is backed up nightly to an external
host, in case of disk failure or other loss of data. currently, this
is NOT being done, because of the following MySQL bug:
therefore, you should take your own backups of any important data. i
will inform the list when this bug is resolved.
I have finish the installation of phpMyAdmin at hemlock. It can be find
at . But it is not accessible by the web, only by localhost. You have
to use a ssh-tunnel.
At linux, you can use
ssh -L 8080:127.0.0.1:80 hemlock.knams.wikimedia.org
. Login at hemlock and you can find phpmyadmin at . The windows guys
can use putty in the same way (look for "tunnel" and google a bit).
If there are questions, please mail me :).
Duesentrieb and I solved the problem with the post-parameters. The
problem was a module, which I have had installed today to reject a DOS.
I have disable it now. To solve the DOS-Problem, I plan to use iptables.
For this, a new kernel is needed and I need to make a reboot. So I
prognosticate you a reboot for friday, 14:00 CET (Thats 13:00 UTC). It
should be a couple of minutes (just rebooting).
Sorry for making problems again :(
