we lost 1 month's worth of data

the very short story because i'm too bummed to even type this crap:

1. uptime vps disappeared, thousands of sites disappeared including this one (so we lost members, posts, journal entries, etc)
2. that should have been fine but the daily backups i was downloading were full of errors for some unexplained reason
3. the only backup i had that was working, was from october 26th

thats it, sorry, pissed, peace.

thanks man, ya it's definitely better than nothing but it still really eats away at me that we lost data.. i try to make sure i back up everything, every night, just so we dont lose anything, and bam, corrupt backup files on that uptime vps host.. still have no clue why they were corrupt.. they were 1 gig files full of "error logs" instead of forum data, made no sense, because ive been backing up the same ways for years and never had a prob.

[7:31pm] adarq: he's just

Don't PM me asking me training questions. I'm here for the lulz. If you want help, post on the forums and get help from all the members, maybe even me.

Ah... bad news.

Maybe you should sift through the error logs and fix it up. Problem solved

uptimevps is gone, cant access the old data, they disappeared instantly a week or so ago (when we first went down).

Glad to see the site back up. what a bummer about the backup files.
As long as the site is back up we can continue where we left of.
For the journal part, they may be gone but our body's are a testimony of that.  :ibsquatting:
As for the articles that were for helping members, the people who read it know, the ones who didn't get to read it, bad luck, hopefully we got more in the future in learning more as more about training is revealed.

Peace

Glad the page is back! :)

It doesn't matter much with the lost posts, as long as the page is back up :)

thanks everyone.. glad yall are back on the site having fun.
 :wowthatwasnutswtf:


btw, not like i care but, here's a campaign to track down the owner of uptimevps etc.. i don't even care much because i should have verified my backups.

This.
Create a forum backup on your HD, then write a script and set it to execute every night. A simple one that just reapplies latest patch on the local HD forum and prints just some basic stuff , e.g date and total posts.
You will only have to check the .txt output in the morning and see if it works.
If you haven't already done that by now!  ;D


BTW its still Adam Lickmyboner's fault , nothing would have happened if we were still on bluehost!  :pissed:
woot

ya, that wouldnt have worked unless i had been verifying the backups, because, i was using the same exact process as ive always used, which has always worked, until we put that site on that uptimevps hosting.. so i didnt think for one second that the backups were wrecked.. whack!
