Data Recovery

On 2017-04-04 we had a rather major disk malfunction that caused data loss. The data on this site was originally restored from a 2016-11-05 backup, but with wiki pages changes since then recreated from the search index.

Note that files and images uploaded since November are still missing and will need to be re-uploaded and reattached to the pages by hand.

Please let us know if you find anything else missing or broken due to this outage. We thank you for your patience.

How do I repair my database?

Repair Database

Tiki needs a database to work correctly. If you get an error like table crashed (or similar), perhaps you need to fix this and Tiki will work as expected.

example error
Table 'tiki_sessions' is marked as crashed and should be repaired

Please see some instructions

Actual SQL query
REPAIR TABLE `tiki_sessions`;

To avoid the trouble you can also install Tiki with (or convert later) your MySQL tables to InnoDB format (instead of default MyISAM).
