Database Corruption

Recommended Posts

Sorry folks, there appears to have been a database corruption late last night/

early this morning ... I've sorted the corruption now though.

 

Thanks

Neil

Looks like a few 'search engines' hit the forum and the sessions table became

corrupted. All repaired now and the forum is back up and running :)

 

Cheers

Umm ... I'm sure you have much more pressing matters on yor mind .. but .. in case you have an idle moment ;) .. can you confirm that the forum is not indexable by searchbots, and is only browseable by registered users?

The forum is not searchable or indexable by webots (web engine indexing tools) as you have to be a member to browse the forums and these webots are not :D

Umm ... OK, just checking ... I am mildly parnoid thats all ;)

 

Some fora restrict access to members, but allow indexing by Googlebot et al, usually based on the "user agent" header supplied in the GET request. Its a common technique used by pr0n sites too, let the googlebot index it or provide different content, and then put up a preview site for normal preverts, err, I mean users.

 

Anyway, i was just checking that we werent beign logged by the googlebot thats all ...

Don't worry Robin, you're safe enough :)

 

It's only the few generic forums at the top that are non-shooting specific

that are openly available.
