The only thing that comes back lately about this is a failed kernel on the server machine.
Here is a quote from rbl. You can contact him further on the exact nature of his issue but this is the only thing I can recall with that error.
Sorry for the delay on this one but it was a very nasty bug to solve. |
After a few tries, we have isolated this to a kernel problem. Took a lot of time because the logs were clean: no clues, no traces... nothing.
The problem was constant lost connections to the mysql server. These caused the mysql_num_rows errors in every file that used them. I've kept my changes for the times mysql_num_rows was used to count rows. The COUNT(*) function is better.
As soon as I know anything else about this particular kernel issue, I'll post here. Maybe it would be helpfull for someone.
Anyway, my apologies and thanks to everyone that lost time with this issue but unfortunately this was beyhond my control =(
PS: almost forgot! PP is running on php 4.3.7 with no problem whatsoever =)
You state you have tried running a database repair. HMM how is your space on the account? Have you tried a server restart?
