Backup restored

Post by Princess MeowsePad » 3 months ago

Somehow, my server decided to delete the forum's MySQL database abruptly. I have no idea how or why this happened, but I have put procedures in place to make sure that the database is being backed up automatically every twelve hours. We have lost almost 1000 posts.

I understand how angry you all must be with me, and I am very sorry. I can only promise that such a ridiculous mistake won't happen again. I hope that we can remake the posts in a short period of time.

For the inconvenience, everyone has received 5 Love.

It sucks that we lost 1000 posts, but it’s good that the site is still young, and those posts can be remade pretty quickly.

It’s all chill, thanks for the 5 love!

Thanks! It helps that you guys are being awesome about it. I guess I should feel blessed that the forum received almost 1000 posts in just a couple of days because the backup that I restored was only from June 2nd. I now have the auto database backup enabled making backups every twelve hours. I'm not sure exactly how it was disabled. I will also work with Cassie so that we can remember to take manual backups and store them offline.

Don't sweat it! I was a bit sad that I couldn't post yesterday, but I'm glad the forums are back online!

We gained back all the posts and more in just a few days, so we survived. XD
