Emergency Maintenance Complete on Shared MySQL Database Server MySQL23 - 04/01/2020 @ 8:10PM CST

Wednesday, April 01, 2020 8:10:47 PM CST

Update 8:07PM CST: The database transfer was successful and most databases should now be online. There are a few which had issues moving over and were likely caught up in the initial InnoDB tablespace corruption. We will do our utmost to fix this small handful of remaining databases. If your site is still down due to this database issue, please contact our support team for assistance. Thank you!

Update 3:09PM CST: We have begun the process of importing all databases into a fresh MySQL installation to avert the corrupted InnoDB tablespace as previous efforts to repair have not been successful. Databases on MySQL23 will remain in read-only during this time, but should still be accessible. When the transfer is complete we will update this status. 

The MySQL23 / mysql23.ezhostingserver.com shared database server is currently undergoing emergency maintenence due to tablespace errors with the InnoDB engine. Some downtime for websites with databases on this server is occurring as a result of the problem, however we are working to fix this issue as quickly as possible. 

The server is occasionally being brought-up in read-only mode during troubleshooting. Read-only mode ensures data is retained while we repair the issue, however it prevents changes to any database on the server in the meantime. This is why your website may be up but experiencing unique errors. 

Updates to our progress will be posted here as we have them. Thank you for your patience! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our 24/7 support team by logging into your client control panel and following the prompts.
