MySQL people...

I've got a small paying job if you're up for it. When editing an entry, I'm getting things like this:

Database error [966]: Duplicate entry '1-13' for key 2
Database error [966]: Duplicate entry '2-6' for key 2

The edit goes fine, but it's nevertheless spitting back an error. The range after "Duplicate entry" varies every time, but I believe key 2 stays the same.

If you think you can fix this, email me at and we'll work something out. Please don't request to work on it if you're not FLUENT in MySQL and know how to approach the problem. Thanks!

Goathack: I'm A Dufus

I really think I broke something on my goathack. I'm a dufus and shouldn't be let within SSHing distance of any server.

Anyway, my goathack (8013) is a bit broken. I was looking at the styles (global.look etc) and I have no idea what I've done, but I've broke it.

I tried uploading from CVS and setting CHMOD on the files for 777 but nothing is happening. The "page" element is defined, I can see it both in the global.look and the generic.look

Um, help?

Side: Do we think it might be a good idea to have goathack as some kind of discussion forum for us newbie fools who go around breaking our goathack server, so as not to bother lj_dev?

500 error when accessing goathack

any idea why i'm getting a 500 error from the server on my goathack account right now? i just did a 'cvs update' and ' -c -s' to update to the most current version of everything... and i'm getting the page that says "sorry, we're currently working on something. the site will be back up shortly."

what gives?
