• What’s that thing that happens “After It Rains” ?? No – not “It Pours” .. Not that – AFTER That

    UPDATE #2: October 1, 2006 >> I apparently missed these sites – and they are down right now:

    1) http://CatLvr.com >> There is no database
    2) http://FishLvr.com >> Site destroyed
    3) http://DogLvr.com >> Site Destroyed
    4) http://HorseLvr.com >> Site Destroyed

    I will try to get these up and double check all my sites before the weekend is over. // Sorry for inconvenience

    Update: October 1, 2006 5:00PM CST
    >> All sites are now working and restored. There was a database with CatLvr, however on one of the restoration files was damaged – and it was a plugin called Adhesive file that made it look like everything was missing. File was deleted and everything came back. The other 3 sites had to be restored from the backups and are now working O.K.

    UPDATE: September 30, 2006 >> All sites have now been recovered or restored .. // HART


    There’s been some issues with my entire reseller account .. Here’s the latest ticket I just received ..


    This is our full report of the mishap that occurred last night.

    Yesterday evening (09/28/06) the server your website is hosted on suddenly went offline. Usually such an issue is quite easily resolved and causes only a minor inconvenience of a few minutes downtime and nothing more. Unfortunately, this particular case resulted in a partial drive crash. Due to the failures and data inconsistencies on the drive, a ‘fsck’ was required (FileSystem Check).

    After ‘fsck’ had completed on the drives it was apparent that virtually all data on the /home and /backup partitions of the server were at least corrupted to some extent from the crash. We had continued working on the issue and reviewed what data was available to us. Fortunately, we were able to restore the majority of the accounts on the server to at least some capacity. Many accounts were fully restored, others were missing only a few files which had been corrupted, and unfortunaetly others were completely lost in the drive crash. Please accept our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience this undoubtedly will be presenting to you.

    At this time our backups located on our /backup partition (Which was also affected) do not seem to be in a usable state due to the corruption. We have already investigated the drives to the fullest extent and recovered all usable data possible.

    Unfortunately if your site is still empty or is still missing some files then these files were not recoverable and were lost in the crash.

    Please note that the only site content affected was /home data — MySQL databases are fully intact and unaffected. If you have any databases on the server that need to be reattached to a script install, please let us know. We’ll be more than happy to assist.

    Again, please accept our apologies. At this time you can reupload any site content that you may have backed up. If you have any backups on your local computer that you would like assistance in restoring to your account, or simply have any other inquiries or issues, please let us know.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.

    Well. There are at least 5 major sites destroyed and lost ..

    * Battling-Addiction.com
    * Battling-MS.com
    * 62-151.com
    * Medieval-Site.com
    * www.planetearthresearchfoundation.com/

    Plus at least this phpBB forum and all it’s content

    * Battling-Forums.com

    Honestly .. while there may be hope in the knowledge that the mysql database might be intact .. I don’t know if I have the latest files and template structures xcopied to my hard drive. Especially on the last three sites that most of my time this past week has been working on ..

    What a bummer. Ouch to me.

    * NOTE: THere are some irregularities and some error messages with both the “Battling-Series” sites that I’ve restored .. although, I believe it might have something to do with my Ultimate Warrior Tag and 2 more plugins .. I will first try to recover the others before fine-tuning these little messages .. // Sorry for inconveniences.
