The web server has been shutting down by itself for the past week. I tried looking at the logs to figure out why I come to my office and I find it turned off. It looks like there’s a hardware problem causing the server to shutdown suddenly.
Luckily, I didn’t get any database corruptions – not until now. I changed the power supply and testing to see the results. In my experience almost 90% of the time it is a power supply problem especially that I’m loading the server with an extra useless PATA hard drive just to make GRUB happy.
