in reply to Site back up again

The recovery took about 48 hours (and a felt eternity), as MySQLd took its time rebuilding various ISAM indices.
48 hours? What conclusion should be drawn from this? MySQL is a toy database? Or to avoid ISAM tables like the plaque? Or did Pair do something that a restore took that long?

    It wasn't a restore, it was a recovery. It probably took a long time because of how PM was designed. We're mostly on a 10+ year old architecture -- I'm sure there are plenty of new features in MySQL that we are missing out on. I mean, it's impressive the heavily modified Everything2 engine runs as well as it does now, but I can't say I'm surprised recovering from a critical database issue takes a long time for it. Also, they probably didn't know it would take 48 hours when the recovery process was started.
