Well, great news…

The server was running nice and fast for about, err, 10 hours or so. And then crashed when it tried to do the nightly update!! Its done that once before, where the whole scripts just consumed all the database connections and left none for the web… Thats what happened this morning too… The backup worked normally, the update-system will need to be run manually.

I *think*, but can’t be sure, that the backup interefered with the update system script and caused some kind of deadlock between the two, since the backup took an extraordinary length of time to run this morning. I have moved the time the backup happens to later in the day and so we’ll see what happens from there…

Sorry for that! I went to bed all happy last night that everything was running nice and fast and this morning it was in a heap… DOH!
