SolidGrind Back Online!
Apr 13, 2007 by broox

Holy cow. That was stressful.

Long story short - my server crashed completely, which killed 10+ of my sites... It was bad hard drive (supposedly). After getting the hard drive shipped to me and much troubleshooting, I got the data off of it... so SolidGrind is back!

* broox makes several backups right NOW.

Also, keep in mind, we are on a new server, so some things might be broken. If you see anything suspicious or missing, let me know.

Thanks, Derek. Great to have SG back online... I'll take a look for dead links/images.

Apr 13, 2007 RamenRadio

YES! It's back!

Apr 13, 2007 RamenRadio

Now if we could JUST get some T-Shirts going lol jk

Apr 13, 2007 sam

Yeah, nice.

Apr 13, 2007 SonicSoaper

Alrighty. I hope evrything doesn't crap out again.

Apr 13, 2007 Surfaced

Those are the bad ones from page 12. Theres bound to be others.

Apr 13, 2007 AnthoFlex

Recent comments on profile views is messed up too

Apr 13, 2007 Surfaced

I could swear there were more comments on the Scam... maybe not though.

Apr 13, 2007 kobansora

I missed you, baby.


Apr 13, 2007 rhinoskater30

Apr 14, 2007 Zhowulf

Woohoo! Awesome!

Apr 14, 2007 matrix8967

Apr 14, 2007 SonicSoaper

Better not let the authorities hear that. -_-;

Apr 14, 2007 Slidey

man I was worried lol
Good job its back up =D

and yeah, back ups lool

Apr 24, 2007 RamenRadio

Solidgrind is acting wacko, and I have no clue. I've never seen ANYTHING like this. Not even when I was in an webpage making course in college (specializing in only html and javascript though). I'm stumped as to what the heck is the problem.....


And, derek still has not replied to me..... I sent him an email about this too...

Apr 24, 2007 RamenRadio

Good god, I'm so confused. It's also moving kinda slow as well as this

Apr 24, 2007 Tasslehoff

haha I had ordered my SOAPs right as SG went offline, I was gonna do some more research, see if I could get some tips, and freaked out when the site wasnt there.lol.

Apr 24, 2007 RamenRadio

I know, its saying stuff like the server had stopped responding. Good god, this is horrible. Solidgrind is suffering, and broox is nowhere to be found.


Apr 24, 2007 broox

calm down dude.

websites reside on servers. sometimes servers have issues. the server was having issues yesterday. your webpage making class won't help with that, ha.

Apr 24, 2007 RamenRadio

lol, okay, I just wanted you to be aware of the situation, I haven't seen you lately on

Apr 24, 2007 RamenRadio

But is everything okay no?

Apr 24, 2007 RamenRadio


Apr 24, 2007 broox

i don't know really. i haven't seen anything weird yet today.

Apr 24, 2007 RamenRadio

Check out someone's profile in recent comments. That thing is still there. And today, it was running a bit slow. It took like 40 seconds to load in my browser.

Apr 24, 2007 RamenRadio

I mean to connect to solidgrind

Apr 24, 2007 Go2Crew

Hi Derek, it seems several of the profiles are skewed after the restore effort. Under the comments part, mine says "Warning: mysql_num_rows(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /mnt/stor15-wc1-ord1/333329/www.solidgrind.com/web/content/includes/db.php on line 43". Indexing whacked-out maybe? --Steve

Apr 24, 2007 RamenRadio

maybe we should change hosting. I know that won't fix the corruption's, but I'm not too sure if I want to trust this server... I'm only recommending it though

Apr 24, 2007 pepsi

yeah, i think the comments parts on all the profiles are like that.

Apr 24, 2007 RamenRadio


another broken image :(

There is also one with the security guard that hates soap shoes that is broken, but I don't have the link. I'd really recommend changing servers though.

Apr 24, 2007 pepsi

yeah, theres multiple photos that dont work for me, exactly like that picture. :/

Apr 24, 2007 broox

profile recent comments fixed.

sorry steve, wasn't an indexing error - the new server has a newer version of mysql, which is a little more strict on some of the sql syntax.

Apr 24, 2007 pepsi

nice work :)

Apr 24, 2007 broox

also, please check for broken photos again - i think i got them all corrected...

Apr 24, 2007 broox

and, the rss feeds are now fixed...

Apr 24, 2007 Surfaced

awesome, i can log in again. For a day or two, whenever I clicked "log in" it simply refreshed the page.

Apr 24, 2007 AnthoFlex

i think perhaps the MOST anoyying thing (is it happens to you too) that noone mentioned is the SLOW as hell comment posting and forum posting...

has anyone else noticed?

Apr 24, 2007 SonicSoaper

Yeah, I've noticed that too.

Apr 24, 2007 AnthoFlex

Seems to be fixed now...

Apr 24, 2007 RamenRadio

I noticed it before too.

Apr 25, 2007 RamenRadio

And comments are disappearing!!!! This is like the 5th time it's happened!

May 9, 2007 RamenRadio

That pic is broken. It's supposed to go to derek doing a backside farf on a cement bench or something, but it goes to something entirely different.

May 9, 2007 mets603412

no its not he doing it on a rail.

May 14, 2007 cherryman696966

so a month later and it crashes again? anyone els ehave an error getting to solid grind baout 4 hours ago?

May 14, 2007 RamenRadio

me and sam did.

May 14, 2007 Surfaced

I did too. I tried accessing Derek's other sites as well, and none worked except www.broox.com.

May 27, 2007 Locke

I'm not sure if this is the same problem other people were having, but it happened to me about the same time... It seems the server's bandwith is all getting eaten up. I daresay you might need a larger server to handle all the traffic, Broox. At least, that's what I'm getting from the error text. =\

May 27, 2007 Locke

Oh, I didn't even look at the date. Nevermind, not the same thing; a few hours ago TODAY, as well as a couple times before.

May 27, 2007 RamenRadio

I don't know exactly what's going on, but it's really pissing me off. I think this has to be some of the worst hosting I've ever seen.

May 27, 2007 RamenRadio

I'm about ready to pull my hair out, everything is falling apart in solidgrind. Comments are flying out of place, lost connections to the server, whatever it may be, this hosting is probably some of the worst hosting I've ever seen.

May 27, 2007 RamenRadio

wtf? Now the latest comments and the threaeds in the forum are flying out of place. Where is the old hosting when you need it?

May 27, 2007 Surfaced

yeah, shit has been fucked-up lately.

May 27, 2007 Mart

Weirdly, I've not experienced any kind of trouble like this since the switchover. I'm sure such problems would be experienced on the other sites that Derek's moved over to the new server, so if the problems are universal in that sense then I reckon he'd be sorting it

May 28, 2007 SonicSoaper

Dude, all of yesturday some freaky stuff went down.

May 28, 2007 RamenRadio

Yeah, and broox has not replied to me yet...
