Suddenly I get emails from members because they received a conversation from me that I did not send, it is an old PM I send in vB and was imported as conversation. I'm not sure but it seems it's being send to multiple members. I don't know what's going on, but the whole system seems to go crazy. People end up being added together in this conversation.
Can you please tell me how to stop this, I did nothing to cause this it just started? I hope someone can give advice on what to do first and find out the cause.
I just did a restore of our database from a backup from yesterday, unfortunately there is a problem. A bunch of posts all show up as empty or can't be find. Is this a known problem? What could be causing this and what can I try to investigate this?
He said they're using r1soft backup software, this sets up a second mysql instance, then restores the files to disk first and then imports the database to the live instances from the second instance. Hope that helps.
We could recover from a complete backup with a bare metal restore. Everything looks fine now. I want to thank Brogan for the fast response and help. Just need to find out what happened that caused the initial problem now...
