Tech:Some special pages broken

From Wikitravel Shared
Jump to: navigation, search

What happens[edit]

Several pages in the "Special" namespace return "MySQL Server has gone away". See for example Special:SpecialPages (linked in the "Toolbox" in the left nav). This was not happening yesterday.

When it happens[edit]

Attempt to load (for example) Special:SpecialPages, and "MySQL Server has gone away" is returned. Happens on every language version I've checked.

What should happen[edit]

How to fix it[edit]

Additional comments[edit]

This has been reported & I have verified the error; tech is prepping for a new cacheing system to be deployed Monday but I have asked if they can look at Special over the weekend because I am guessing it will not be a difficult fix -- possibly it went awry after the Patrolled Multiple Edits fix?--IBobi 19:44, 6 July 2012 (EDT)

This seems to be fixed now, thanks! -- Ryan 01:48, 7 July 2012 (EDT)
