[M] Dedicated Mysql server burns through 500W PSU
Our site was offline due to the power supply failing on our dedicated mysql server; Priorweb, our hosting company, was on the case before I even mailed them; the last hours they have been troubleshooting the dedicated server (new PSU will be ordered) and restored the last backup of our database to the webserver. <br><br>

The site may be less responsive as we're running on our single CPU system, but we're online! Thanks go to Jimmy, Cedric and Sander from Priorweb for their quick intervention!

How did you find such a great support team?:) I was wondering the cause of downtime.

Bizar, any reason why the dually burnt down ? rest of HW intact ? Or no Idea yet ?

I know we could have done a whole lot worse "webhosting" wise, Priorweb has been/is extremely good to us.

The cooling of the PSU failed, which caused it to overheat and initiate a forced shutdown to prevent damage; Cedric (of Priorweb) has already looked at the server to take down notes on the specs of the PSU, and I've asked them to order a new one ASAP.

talking about service :ws: .

jmke 26th April 2007 13:58 (who build our original server which are running on now) is looking for a new PSU, with a bit of luck we'll have the server up and running either just before, or just after the weekend.

we swapped out the PSU... turns out it's not the PSU :) the motherboard was apparently the culprit! New mobo fixed the server.
