[BETA 7452] Some domains cannot load after update from previous build
Problem reported by Sébastien Riccio - 5/27/2020 at 7:27 PM
Resolved
Hello,

I've updated our test server to the latest beta build tonight and after login in as admin around 10 domains (on 5k) where not able to load.

Error loading domain, displayed in the domain list, instead of the domains infos.

Unfortunately I did not take a screenshot of this and attempted a restart of the server.

After the restart of the server, no more errored domains. It looked good to me but in fact all the previously failed domains are completly _gone_ and not listed anymore.

I remember only one of the domain name, and it can't be found anymore. The domain data files though, are still on the disk.

Is there a way to know what happened and which other domains where affected ? I've searched one of the domain name in the log files but found nothing about it.

Note: this is hopefully a beta test server with only activity on a domain for testing purposes, but still I would like to know why this happened and how to fix it as we were planning to update our production server (not sure anymore ...)

Thank you for your help.

Actually I found something in conversion log by manually "grep'ing" the file. Seems they are not available in the troubleshooter page log files.

Real domain names redacted for privacy...

Update to this for people following.  The five domains had some corrupted files, and the reported issue is not related to last night's build.

Yes, it's not related to this particular build. It was on a test server for the beta and the files were probably already corrupted long before the update attempt.

Thank you for looking in to it.
