I really am glad to see the project back up and running! Failed drives are never a fun thing, especially when there is data loss!

Possibly related to the crash and recovery, I noticed that the server does not appear to be exporting stats. All of the common stats sites I checked still show zero activity for all users on the project even though there has actually been quite a bit of work returned since you brought the server back online.

Confirmed. The stats directory shows that the last modified date is 2021-01-10 07:25

We still have a few glitches in the system. I believe email notifications are now working (they are for me).

Regarding stats export:
The update_stats cronjob is running as expected with no errors in the cron logs. Running it manually, it completes with no error messages, but does not produce an output. So this will take some more time to figure out.

So it's the db_dump script that's responsible for generating the export files. I think I fixed the problem. I ran it manually and it generated a new set of stats. It should now run automatically every 24 hours.

Let me know if you notice anything else out of the ordinary.

Yes, I see the new datestamps on the export files - that should do it.

But my credit now (131,860,347) is still below the last export before the crash (132,015,902). So the first movement will be downwards. Nothing we can do about that.
