Can't post new topic, error 29 from storage engine
« on: June 10, 2015, 02:53:11 am »
Cannot start any new thread here - database error. Also, getting "Got error 29 from storage engine" randomly when reading existing threads. DB broken!

Do NOT PM for help!

It seems that only some forums are affected.  I've been trying to post in the WebGUI forum for the past 4 hours without success.

I can't post a thread about RingCentral sucking

We just switched from them 2 weeks ago and I couldn't be happier.  We're with FluentStream now.  Much better quality and service.  RingCentral followed the usual Peter Principle As Applied to Corporations, ie they grew to the point of incompetence.  Our issues were tons of phantom calls every day, poor voice quality and laughable customer service.  When you call with a problem they ask for logs and never get back to you.  When you press them, they simply ask for more logs and never get back to you.  Rinse, lather, repeat.  All their agents are morons when it comes to networking.  They blame the problems you have on "hackers" that they claim have penetrated your network.  Pings to their access points are horrendous.  I've never seen a smokeping graph with so much purple and red.

Run as fast as you can away from them.

Yeah, we are looking at this now.
It's been thwarting my moderating efforts for a while.  ;)

Something weird happened here and onward: https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=95009

Topics greater than that don't currently work and new topics don't either. We may have to go into maintenance mode soon.

This looks to be fixed. SMF got itself all confused somehow and hosed part of the database. Some db repair seemed to clean things up, and I upgraded SMF 2.0.9->2.0.10 since it included some bug fixes, though nothing that appeared to matter for us, maybe something there.

A small number of posts that came through today ended up getting deleted. That Russian thread Jared linked became the home of all new threads somehow for a period of time, and they ended up duplicated multiple times. I split out most of what ended up in there into their own threads. That thread had gotten up to 15+ pages of mostly duplicated posts so I'm sure I missed something. That thread itself also was deleted as it was otherwise weird.

All forum totals and counts were re-calculated after cleaning that up, as something to do with the weird thread messed up some people's counts.

Everything checks out fine now in SMF's db checks, and none of the errors that were flooding its error log have recurred since coming out of maintenance mode, so pretty sure this is all fine now.
