Log upload to SOTA database problem: Solved

I’m a bit hesitant to raise a flag on the reflector but …

I’ve been successfully uploading ADIF or CSV files [generated by Fast Log Entry on my Windows 10 PC] of my logs for ages but today I got the following error message from SOTA database when trying to upload ADIF and CSV.

An error occurred while uploading your file. Please check the file for correctness.
Server message: SQLSTATE[HY000] Unable to connect: Adaptive Server is unavailable or does not exist ( (severity 9)

Any ideas?

It’s dead Jim.

However, I’m at work and can’t restart anything till I get home which is another hour or so. Sorry.

Andy, will that be with those big old bellows you keep by the fireplace?

P.S. Don’t jog it, Andy - no hurry here to upload.

Right, I’ve been home, logged in, slapped the container instance, checked it was working and come back to work.

ISTR that leaving it can cause another process to become sup-optimal in performance leading to more server slapping when I should be relaxing. So I did it now.

Mine’s a pint please?


That good slapping’s done the trick - my ADIF uploaded without errors.

LD SOTA WE Saturday night pub get-together?

Thanks, Andy


Just as long as you buy mine first Andy :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
