Sad SERVER ISSUE: FORUM LOST ONE DAY's POSTS... please read.
~ ANNOUNCEMENT ~


We lost about a day's worth of posts due to a stupid error that I made.

This was due to an accidental deletion of our forum's web hosting files (my fault). Our hosting provider has restored the forums using a backup that was made on July 4th at about 4:16 pm central time.

Unfortunately all posts made between 4:16 pm July 4th through 6:00 pm July 5th (U.S. Central Time) were lost.

Note to new members who registered between July 4th at 4:16 PM and July 5th at 6 PM: Try to log in using your username and password... if this does not work, you may have to re-register.

This only affected the forums, not the main website or the Apnea Board Wiki.

I apologize for this stupid mess-up. I wish we could recover the lost posts for this one-day period, but it's impossible.

At least we only lost one day's worth of posts. Apology-2

Looks like a handful of threads were lost from previous days also... I did a file check and some threads are still missing, even ones from week ago... not sure why this happened... but it only affected 7 threads in the Off-topic forum and 2 in the Main Forum that were made roughly in the same time period. I'll work on restoring those threads if I can find them from a backup I made two days ago.


If anyone has any issues with the forum software, please let me know.

Thanks.

Yeah, I read some of them... good stuff.

So sorry about this. Amazing the trouble caused by mistakenly clicking on one button... I've got to see if there's some sort of server software that won't permanently delete files like this... sort of a trash bin or recycle bin for the server files, where I can quickly restore deleted files if need be.

Again, my sincerest apologies for this rotten ordeal.

No bigs. Yeah, some stuff were lost but it's a drop in the bucket compared to all the good this forum does.

You do good work, SS. I admire you for that. Consider this event to be your Persian flaw.

Just to give a bit of background on what started this mess...

Our old hosting provider was just plain lousy- both at server administration and customer service and support. Their company name started with "Direct" and ended with "NIC".

What started this is that I got an email from the old server hosting people, telling me that my storage space was over the limit and that I needed to delete my files, otherwise face an extra charge for more storage space. At first I didn't understand this, since we were never that close to the limit when we left, but I figured, okay, no big deal, I'll delete the old server files to make more space just to make them happy.

So, I FTP'd into (what I thought) was the old server. I deleted the entire forums folder and all the files within it to make more space. Thing is, after all this was done, I couldn't access the forum website.... uh oh... Blink

I then figured out that the FTP software I was using had the new server log-in info in it, not the old server info. (I was using another file manager program lately and hadn't remembered that I changed the login info already to the new server). SO, I really had deleted all our forum files on the new server. ARGH!!! Perturbed

It was then that I found out that there is no way to restore deleted files easily within my cPanel program for our current hosting provider. (no simple recycle bin type thing for the server files).

So, I had to restore from a complete backup that was done yesterday afternoon by our hosting provider. Thank God they were on the ball and got the restoration done within 2 hours.

Then today, I got a note from our old hosting provider stating that the entire hard drive crashed on our old server and they would have to restore a backup. (thank goodness we got off that hosting service - they were lousy... and I saw this kind of hardware crash coming a mile away (back in May when we switched hosting providers). That old company had lousy everything, including hardware apparently.

Well, all said, losing one day's worth of data is a bad thing indeed... but it could have been much worse.

Thanks for listening. Coffee
