Head over to compo.sr for our new site, and to our migration roadmap. Existing ocPortal member accounts have been mirrored.

No idea what happened...

Everything was working fine today, then all of a sudden it went to heck.  Started tossing cookie errors and my downloads table became corrupted again.

When I look at the "guest" front page, I see attached.



Any ideas?

I also have my daily digest report (255 pages...) that just got created right after I noticed all this.

Don't want to post on here, but Chris, I can email or send it through your secure email system.

Sounds like maybe your server lost power or was set, mid-doing-stuff. It can happen sometimes unfortunately.

MySQL repair is quite straight forward in phpMyAdmin (select all tables and choose to repair them).

You can empty ocPortal's caches from the upgrader, which is pretty good even when the main site is broken, /upgrader.php.

Did a few more checks this morning, when I was awake and not slowly falling asleep at my desk.

Looks like, for whatever reason, it is placing the main content on the right side panel.

I use Temp Code to determine what is shown on the main page as well if to show the right side bar or not.

Most likely a non-closed div in the right panel (or a template called from one of its blocks).

Ya, that was it.  A rouge DIV tag got added to the side bar and wasn't closed.
