MySQL issues on High Sierra

story posted Monday, May 28th, 2018 11:16 pm GMT -5

Just a short post to document an issue I needed to troubleshoot the past few weeks on my web server in Vegas (Go Knights Go!). I’ve been running Homebrew versions of MySQL for some time now with no issues, but recently was receiving quite a few “Can’t connect to MySQL server” errors on all of my virtually hosted WordPress sites. It was particularly difficult to troubleshoot at first because it wasn’t an all or nothing situation – some database calls would go through, while others would not. All I knew was that the old “brew services restart mysql” command would clear things up for a few hours before the flakiness would return.

When I first started looking at the web server logs, I found a lot of error messages like this:

WordPress database error Table 'wp_termmeta' doesn't exist

There were a ton of these – guessing this was relating to the earlier database corruption issues I had related to InnoDB. Turns out that table really didn’t exist and I found this post that had the required SQL to properly recreate it. I wasn’t really sure if any of the themes or plugins that were looking for this table would actually re-populate the table with data (it doesn’t appear so), but the error messages in the logs have gone away (and everything seems a little faster now). Unfortunately, this did not have any impact on the MySQL connection issue.

David Byrne at Orpheum

story posted Sunday, May 20th, 2018 08:25 pm GMT -5

Now that we’ve lost Prince, Bowie and Petty, David Byrne is one of the last living links to my favorite music growing up. Never got to see Talking Heads perform together, but I’ve seen Tom Tom Club once and Byrne solo a few times (does Jerry only produce now?). Looking back in the archive, I saw him at the State doing Brian Eno songs and at the Fitzgerald, along with the talk he gave at the History Theater when How Music Works came out. Last Friday I added another show at the Orpheum, where he did two nights with his new critically acclaimed production (see Bream, Current and City Pages reviews).

Must admit I had a few strikes against this show before it began. First, I had already seen most of it during the Cochella live feeds last month. Second, I had read a review somewhere (that I can’t find now) that said this production blew away Stop Making Sense. Those are fighting words to me – Demme and Bernie Worrell (RIP), Chris, Tina and Jerry, the big suit – nothing will ever top that in my mind. Lastly, I walked in to the theater early and an usher directed me to the wrong section. Instead of a great center seat in row seven, I was in the farthest seat over to the side and couldn’t see all of the stage. On top of all that, my co-worker had seen the Thursday show and said the opening act was the worst thing he’d ever seen. With all that in mind, let’s get this show started, shall we?
