Sorry to members who experienced a recent outage. The issue was actually very simple, but took a few hours to resolve.

Hopefully everything will be stable now, and special thanks to Marina and others who raised the alarm.

I realize that there were some additional random corruption problems after the outage. I apologize for the inconvenience. The good news (if I can term it that), is that the corruption resulted from a very mundane technical issue. There was nothing malicious about it and our security is a strong as always.

I carried out a standard database repair and this seems to have solved most issues. That said, there do still seem to be some additional minor issues to address.

If anyone encounters a problem going forward please post it here and I will try to manually fix it.

Hi Apollos,

I tried to post a comment on this thread (about Lazarus). Whether I hit preview or submit the same thing happens. The post disappears and I get this notice:
No route found for "GET /posting.php" (from "posting.php?mode=reply&f=2&t=2401")



Fortunately, after this happened the first time I redid the post and saved it to a text file before I tried it again, but got the same result.

Thanks again for your efforts in dealing with the problems.

Just FYI, Apollos has efforts underway to find and fix the problems with the forum software.
