Hi everybody,

we are evaluating and using Alfresco in our 3 guys startup company and were quite happy with it. Cool stuff !

Since yesterday night happiness is gone. During a post to a discussion area I got a message telling me something like "database might be deleted" and it was over since then …

Tomcat is running, but Alfresco not …
Version : alfresco-community-tomcat-1.4.0 on a Suse 9.3 server

I had now a look in catalina.log and found this (excerpt) :

I didn't touch the configuration files. So this strange thing just happened without any for me visible reasons … I'm quite desperate at the time …

Does anybody have an idea why that has happened and help us to get back on the feet with Alfresco again ?

Thank you for any hint !!!

Tony
