    Database Disappearance

    *checks it out* Very interesting, still no idea what could've happened to result in my databases vanishing.

    Glad I could help! *forgot the extra punches and pinch, so gives him them now*

    Database Disappearance

    I doubt it, I make sure my system is quite secure, and never download anything that can't be trusted, as for the antispyware/adware/virus programs, I never had any problems with UniServer before, I just don't know what might've happened. Anyways, if anyone elses sees this happen, please post, maybe we can figure out what is similar. ^^ ... ... ... Almost forgot, happy birthday. *punches him 20 times*

    Well, I have, but never like this. Until I can figure out what actuall happened, all I can do is back-up my data, my main purpose here was to see if anyone has had such an issue, and if so, if they knew how and why it happened, or. preferrably, how to stop it. Anyways, I'm running back-ups on all my databases hourly...*real paranoid now*...because I've found that for most of my sites, I have no choice but to rely on the databases, so, the least I can do is ensure they can remain as up-to-date as possible.

    I suppose my explainations are kinda repetative and hard to understand...It comes from my life being sports and then computers... Alright, I'll try to be alittle more clear. The server is Uniform Server 3.3, and none of the server files have been touched directly by me. All the configurations are the same as they were when the server was first loaded onto the computer. As for upgrading the server and the databases possibly being saved elsewhere, I have made no upgrades, no plugins, and no modifications. Having said that, I have checked the folder where the database data is kept, aside from the recreated data and new data, there is no sign of any other databases. Lastly, I perform back-ups daily, but I didn't exactly expect this kind of thing to happen while I was working. Most of the data I was most concerned about when I first posted this was data I had just done from scratch. At the time, I was working on a new web site, and the database was probably the most important part of it. Since it occured, though, I have decided that although controlling the pages via a database provides an easy method of creating, modifying, and deleting pages, it is not a method I will use for future web sites, at least not at first. ^^' Thank you AlleyKat for the suggestions, and I will consider automating the back-up system, but I've always believed that doing something yourself will result in it being done properly. ^^

    Yes, I am aware of changing the password and backing up the databases, but as I stated, I hadn't been able to do so. As for changing the password, as the server is a dummy server and has never been online, I see no reason to do so, especially since I already removed the original users ability to access the databases, root, of course. Each database I make has its own seperate and unique user, each with a different, unique password. So, even if the server were put online and someone got it, they wouldn't be able to do anything without the password and username for the database they wish to alter. Lastly, I have been well aware of how to ensure data is backed-up and restorable, but when the server is offline and the data has just been inserted, it isn't exactly something you back-up when you intend to input more data or modify the current data. Even it is were, the disappearance of the databases is what I wish to prevent from happening again, not ensuring I'd be able to back them up. Not to mention that back-ups of the databases may also have been lost with the loss of the actual databases. After having some time to review the files that remained on the server, I found that several of the server files had been corrupted, and as it is an offline server with the original configuration, it is highly unlikely that they were merely tampered with. I am grateful for your interest in helping me to ensure the data can be restored if such an incident occurs again, but I'd much rather ensure that it doesn't occur again. ^^

    Hey, long time no bugging. Anyways, more serious note, I lost every single one of my custom databases today. I was in the middle of working on my newest website, I had just started the other day, and got very far, but I hadn't had a chance to back-up the database yet. Anyways, I can go back to that later, but, in the middle of working on my website, I received my custom error message (message I programmed into the website to say the database wasn't connecting). At first it only happened every so often, so I didn't think much of it, but just a few minutes ago, the databases, all of them, just disappeared from my server! Not a trace could be found! Anyways, I am using a fresh install of 3.3, meaning I've made no modifications to the configuration and I use no add-ons, basicly it is just a dummy server to test my code before I publish it. Anyways, I had been working on a rather extensive website, I had already completed a news script, complete with comments, ratings, etc., custom page script to add pages easily, links script for easy organization of favorite links, a search script, and I had the basic functions of a forum script done! I still have the code, that is no problem, but recreating the database require for all that is very hard! In other words, I'd much rather avoid such an issue from happening again to me or anyone else. So, if anyone knows of this issue and how to resolve it, please inform me ASAP, I can't risk losing my data again. I put too much work into the first one, and now my time is cut in half to redoing the database, which is the hard thing for me! Coding is easy, but databases required organization, which I sadly lack. ^^' Anyways, in addition to preventing it from happening again, if anyone knows how I can recover the data, that'll be a HUGE help (Yes, I already scanned my PC and checked the Recycle Bin, which has been empty since last week when I deleted my older brothers files...). Thanks in advance. ^^ Edit: Almost forgot...how do I add a custom user to the MySQL database?
  8. But! Meanie! I love this thread, I think it might just be the longest one on this forum! BTW, like my verson the the UniServer advertisment graphic?
  9. I get this issue everywhere on my other computers. Try restarting your PC, and try it again. That always works for me.
  10. Okay, I think we have spammed this thread enough... Now, although I'd love to be able to use Uniform Server as my primary server, until I am able to make the domains work out, I won't be able to. I will however use it as a test server for new sites, or versons of them, before I launch them on my normal servers. As for the solutions provided during the IRC conversation, I have attempted using frames, and it caused my scripts to error with logins. I can't figure out why, but, it errors. I tried iframes, etc., and they all errored with complex scripts like the logins I use, which are tied into many other functions of the scripts, so, I can't exactly change them. I am however working on less intertied scripts, so that the various functions do not fully rely on primary functions, such as the logins. I hope that they will permit the frames to work, but, I can't be sure they will. I am grateful for the help I have recieved thus far, and I hope that a solution to this may come up for others to use.
  11. Okay... *walks off slowly...*
  12. Yea, but, not many people come on the forums, so, there isn't too much activity. You might want to try going to the IRC channel, and if you have to, just sit there for a few hours, unlike me, you probably have the time for it.
  13. I know you are! *runs off crying like a little kid*
  14. You're just enjoying all these issues I have with running a server on my computer, arn't you?
