Server Problems - Wiki offline

Post by joefremont » Tue Jul 31, 2012 5:59 pm

Over the last couple days we have had some problems with our server going down. At first we tracked this down to the database filling up the disk that it was being stored on. Further investigation found that the database for the wiki has just exploded in size.

To explain the problem, we run both online and offline backups on the system, every day we run a script that exports each the databases on the server, compresses it and saves it online. On January 21 of this year, the main database backup was 500MB and the wiki backup was 3.7MB. In May the main database was 620MB and the wiki was 3.4GB, and yesterday the main database backup was 650MB and the wiki backup was 26GB.

Until we can find a solution to this we can't let the wiki bring down the whole server so for now its offline.
