You may have noticed that the db4free.net server is currently down.
Reason is that an InnoDB crash has occurred and efforts to recover have failed. However, I was able to create a dump file of the entire server, which I’m currently importing into a fresh server instance.
As things look now, the server will be back up with almost all data intact (except maybe updates from April 19th, 2013). But the data volume is large and it will take time. So please be patient while the new server instance is put in place.
Update 2013-04-21 19:45 UTC: Server is back.
Update 2013-04-28 01:25 UTC: same crash happened again. db4free.net will stay down until further notice.
Update 2013-05-02 22:00 UTC: db4free.net is back. But I can’t guarantee for how long. What happened twice recently can happen again any time.

Thank’s Man, You’re just one awesome guy. DB4FREE has helped a lot with development and testing, sadly i’ve contributed nothing but know my sincerest gratitude goes to you until i have enough bucks to donate a little at least.
Could you please post when the recovery is done?
Great! I’m using your service for database software that my administrators use! Thanks for that free service that allows remote access. 🙂
Hi, first of all thank you for your good job and this great service! I’d like to know how much time will require the restarting. I don’t mean to hurry you up or complain of course! It is just useful to know if it’s going to require a few hours, a few days, a few weeks, …., so I can organize myself with that timing.
Thank you again!
Respected sir. Please tell me that how many time take to recover database. A very urgent database required for me. Which is ‘utkarshiti’ so please recover or send me via mail. Thank you! God bless you
