The index is rebuilding itself now. You can use the search again, but results may be incomplete.

The search system will now return all matching posts, as the index has finished its rebuild.

Excellent work, Paul. Feels pretty good to have "View Your Posts" back.

I've just been made aware that the server clock is running fast by around 4 minutes. I'll log a support ticket to get it fixed.

Yeah, I just noticed that and came here to mention it. It kinda freaked me out for a couple seconds!
If you've got nothing to do, don't do it here.

Getting a few SQL errors, today, which weren't happening yesterday...

General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

Table 'phpbb3_sessions' is marked as crashed and should be repaired [1194]

An SQL error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact the Board Administrator if this problem persists.


Looks like that may need re-indexing or similar...

Same here with the SQL error messages.

There were some power problems at the hosting facility earlier which affected this server and one other new one, causing them to be restarted. It looks like it smashed the temporary sessions table during the outage, which I've now repaired.

These issues are now supposedly fixed.

It's a pure pleasure to use the board again, with "normal" speed!
thanks for all your work to get it right!
