A Call for Aid: Forums Down after running out of disk space
About 5 months ago, my server ran out of disk space, and I lost access to our forums. It turned out that the data file disappeared. I recreated it (I believe correctly, but it's possible there's an error in it) and put it in the correct place with correct permissions, but this did not resolve the matter. I then re-installed as root (a mistake), and after being advised by gossamer support, re-installed through the web. The forums came up for a moment (only the entrance page) but after I clicked on a forum they went down and stayed down. The admin page is working, however when I use it, I can add a user, but not delete one.

An examination of our mysql database gives the impression that all the data is intact. Our user lists, forum lists, etc in the admin pages all appear accurate and up-to date. It is possible there is some problem with mysql but I tend to think this is not the issue.

I am not particularly linux-savvy, but the administrator of my box is, and he has taken a close look at the situation without being able to resolve it.

Our forums are very important to our small group, and I would greatly appreciate any advice or assistance in resolving this matter. I am happy to provide any troubleshooting information I can, run tests in the shell, examine logs (please tell me where I am likely to locate them) and report anything that might help anyone who can assist us.

I greatly appreciate any advice or assistance in this matter.

Sincerely,

D. De Stefano Founder, Organelle http://www.organelle.org
