Subject Re: Recover from startup problems
Date Mon, 22 Aug 2011 15:09:01 GMT
Yes, you can blow away both the data and commitlog directories and
restart, but can you try these first to troubleshoot?

1. make a copy of the commitlog directory
2. downgrade to 0.8 with no other changes, to see if it's something on
the new read path
2a. if 0.8 starts up then we will fix the read code in trunk
2b. if 0.8 doesn't start up either, remove the data directory but NOT
commitlog, and restart.  this will cause commitlog to be replayed --
with luck whatever is causing the problem is still in there, so if it
breaks again, we have a reproducible case

Thanks!
