I try to avoid this as much as possible because it’s a pain in the butt to fix, but sometime’s its unavoidable if the server crashes.
If the VM instance is stopped for any reason and restarted, values in the mysql database pertaining to the site url are automatically reset to defaults. Is there something in the bitnami Start services or boot up that is causing this?
domain value on site 1 (blog_id = 1) is reset to google default external url, something like 34.XXX.XX.xo.com
siteurl and home both reset to same default external address
Domain value reset to default external address
I should note that this is a multisite and sites 2 and 3 are not affected in any way as far as I can tell.
I wondered if it was a wordpress issue, but because this only happens at the stop/start of the VM it suggests that it’s deployment specific. I don’t see how wordpress would be able to find and populate the default google external address into it’s tables.
It’s almost like restarting the instance is performing some part of the deployment process when it first initialized.
