Outage Last Night

Post by Iain »

There was an issue with the database on my host last night, which resulted in some data corruption so they had to restore the database with a backup from around 24 hours previously.

I think a message or two from the forum might have been lost (one of which was mine) but that should be it.

Ah, there you have it! The other post was this unique interview with myself, hand typed! And of course we don't have a back-up I suppose!??!

I do backup the forum and site fairly regular now, probably once every couple of weeks, but certainly not multiple times a day.. not quite busy enough for that! ;-)

It seems the hosts must make some backups these days as well, since they had none a few years ago when we got hacked :(

Yeah I remember, that was a bad day, 3500 posts down the drain IIRC? :-(
