It’s June 2014 since I last decided to rebuild my RadioDJ SQL database from scratch.
In all the years I’ve been doing Internet Radio this is the longest I’ve gone without having to rebuild a SQL database.
Some of the credit for the stability also needs to go to MariaDB we’ve found it’s a lot more stable and easier to setup than Oracle MySQL.
When I used other automation software I was having to rebuild the database from scratch every other week as it was just so unstable and badly written…
Plus that piece of software didn’t have a backup tool so when the database went wrong you lost all your data which sucked!
The RadioDJ database setup tool takes a daily backup of your MySQL data and is easily restored if the worst should happen.
“The only issue we’ve had with the database in the last 18 months was after a power cut which caused some of the tables to crash and was easily solved using HeidiSQL to quickly repair them.”
Thankfully power cuts don’t happen that often where we live.
Other than that one issue with a power cut the RadioDJ database has been amazingly rock solid & reliable.
