What's happened? Does hsqldb store data in memory and that is why
the data has got lost when the power went? I thought it stored the
data in xwiki_db.script? Anyone?
It depends how you configured HSQLDB. AFAIK xwiki configures it by
default to store to files and not in memory... Now it probably has a
cache for performance reasons but several weeks of data loss looks
like another issue. I'd recommend talking to the HSQLDB guys on their
forums/mailing list. They're the best to know how to fix this I think.
We also recommend making regular backups of your database same as you
would backup any of your personal files. For HSQLDB it's especially
easy since you just have to save a directory. I know, it's too late
now for you but if that can help others...
