Server crash!

#1 Post by Stu » Fri Jan 18, 2019 11:31 am

Unfortunately there was a crash on the server last night!

And for some unknown reason my daily backups have failed!

Due to this I have had to roll back the forum to the earliest date of the 14th so 4 days worth of posts and user have been lost!

This was better than the alternative of a handful of users data being lost

I will be looking in to future backups to ensure this doesn't happen again!

I would guess that everyone who has joined the forum since the last valid backup has been deleted. I've just noticed that recent private messages have also gone.. And some that I had deleted are back from the grave.

Could be worse.

Yes that is right.

Everything is back to how it was 4 days ago it should have been at worse 24 hours max but hey ho.

You are right it could have been worse it was either 4 days or accounts and lots of information lost.

Well done on getting as much back in as brief a down-time as you did.

It's Friday - you can have a glass of something suitable tonight to get over the stress.

@Bender operator error :lol:

there is a bug with the mention software in that if you quote a mention and try to mention someone it doesn't always work!

you have to delete the mention in the quote

I had just posted at 12:02 when the server went down. Don’t think I caused it :shock:
I can’t remember the exact wording from then so I’ve got no chance of remembering what I posted over the last 4 day. :lol:

Two days ago I created that post that loads of people on here agreed was "the funniest post in the history of the TMBF forum"

Is there any way that the recognition for this can be reapplied?

ps glad at least something is back @Stu :thumb:
