Big loss of data on Identi.ca
We've had a big loss of data on identi.ca. All data created between about 18:00 UTC 22 Oct 2011 and about 17:00 UTC 27 Oct 2011 is missing from our databases. Data
Cause of the data loss isn't clear at this time. I changed our master/slave configuration last weekend, which might explain the problem if data wasn't being written, but it wouldn't explain why it's apparently working again.
I'm investigating the problem and hopefully we'll be able to recover that historical data.
I apologize sincerely for this problem. I appreciate the trust people put in me and in StatusNet to maintain their data, and this isn't the kind of support you expect or deserve.
UPDATE: I found it! The site had been directing traffic to the wrong back-end database server. I think I should be able to recover it. There's going to be some problems with duplicate IDs, but I think I can fix that.
