All seems ok now.

Sorry about that,

An unexpected database error occurred. Please try again later.

I just thought McCain was starting his jet in Hell. Guess that's why I never worked in IT.

Nice fix though, but pls. don't let it go to your head, I don't wanna sound like a BF.

keefer,

we have been getting crushed from overseas for quite some time now,
constantly probing, etc.

it was not a surprise to me and it is now affecting our backup.

so I need to come up with a fix for the backup without having to buy a ton more storage.

even our host states it is a big db, when they host oodles and oodles of sites

So? You need your own server or a stack of them?

not complete yet,

did a graceful server reboot rather than a hard shutdown, so that takes a bit as it lets stuff go naturally rather than sledge hammer

I should have just done a hard reboot, as then it would have just happened rather than in sequencing,

we aren't out of the woods yet

as stated, it is sequencing, think of it as a piece at a time more or less

rather than a computer that you reboot the whole thing, it is going thru areas at a time,

Same here, as Scorp says, I guess we'll need to wait until things stabilize. Posts are being applied even though we're getting a server error message.

Be patent. I'm blaming Trump!

The outage coincided with the usual morning 'dump'. Can't verify that in this case because I ignore it now, but it seems like a pretty good place to start. I know my computer loading issues vanished after activating that magical 'GONG' feature.

Try that Scorp… Worked for me.

still issues with replies,

if that doesn't work, will proceed with a hard reboot and see if it even comes back

D, that is when our backups occur,
If not allowed to do its thing, we could jeopardize our backup db

Been so happy since I took EO's advise! Wish I had thought of that sooner.
