I'm afraid that yesterday morning's backup was the last one before the server died and all was lost.

Still working on it now, but that's the best we can expect, and is a load better than the situation at lunchtime, which was posts from 29/9 and attachments from 21/9.

Been a bad day.

But am so happy to have data from yesterday morning - full story a bit later.

Jazz - think that was just while Pottsy was fixing things - should be ok now?


Pottsy - , but a HUGE (and bigger thank you!) for getting back what you did :applause:

What is it with me and hosts? This one:

Has mega trillioflop multi processor servers with a terraglob of RAM and RAID 10 infernodisks, does daily backups (er, to another partition on the same machine) and has 100.0% uptime since April. I come along, and the hardware I'm on terminally lunches itself, managing to destroy everything on all partitions. After some begging and self-prostitution, the owner of the host found a corrupt backup of our site, but managed to pull the database and the attachments. I added the rest (or at least, my ftp is still grinding away) and we have a restored site! My last backup was on the 29th, so I'm quite relieved.

I was "that" close to sending you a PM on that - but didn't want to depress you even more...

I'm just glad you were able to get things going again. Now, does anyone remember if anything valuable or at least interesting was posted yesterday?

Been suffering from withdrawl symptoms - missed my daily fix.
Glad to see you back up and running (well jogging) - shame about the missing posts.

Thinking positively - the site seems to be running nicely... Nothing like a clean install of the OS.

On that note, time for a coffee. Back later
