Database Errors

Recommended Posts

I run a Global Online Text Game (www.landofknights.com) and have some strange problems occur very rarely. I run the game using PHP and MySQL with MySIAM databases. For some reason however, the database decided to set everyones level to 1 overnight, now I know you may think this is a hack, and here are my reasons for believing it is not:
[list]
[*]It has happened 3 times, randomly, twice the link has been caused by deleteing a user.
[*]Much of the site is secured using the mysql_real_escape_string() funtcion.
[*]I do not believe it the host, it has happened on two host, most recently on my dedicated server (information as follows):

Ram: 1GB of Ram

Processor #1 Vendor: GenuineIntel
Processor #1 Name: Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 2.80GHz
Processor #1 speed: 2801.559 MHz
Processor #1 cache size: 1024 KB

Processor #2 Vendor: GenuineIntel
Processor #2 Name: Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 2.80GHz
Processor #2 speed: 2801.559 MHz
Processor #2 cache size: 1024 KB

Processor #3 Vendor: GenuineIntel
Processor #3 Name: Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 2.80GHz
Processor #3 speed: 2801.559 MHz
Processor #3 cache size: 1024 KB

Processor #4 Vendor: GenuineIntel
Processor #4 Name: Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 2.80GHz
Processor #4 speed: 2801.559 MHz
Processor #4 cache size: 1024 KB

On a Apache and Linux system with PHP 4.4.3 and MySQL 5.0.24.
[*]It has done it on a lower version of MySQL and is the reason I upgraded.
[/list]
Is it possible that it is because I don't use InnoDB?

Impossible to tell... you can turn on the binary logger, and make sure that there's no update statement being run that you don't know about.

It's somewhere in the my.cnf file, I don't recall.
