Posts Restored & Business (almost) Back to Usual


Ok I’ve just painstakingly restored all the posts I could find since September 10th until now from Google Cache.

I’ve worked out the maximum posts missing would be 1 as I could get the cache back to September 12th and the latest post before that is September 10th, or I might not have posted on September 11th anyway.

Anyhow things should all be restored now – and it was incredibly boring…so it shows the power of taking regular backups. I’m incredibly thankful I took my own backup on September 10th…I can’t imagine what it would be like if I hadn’t backed up or it was 2-3 months out of date.

I made a few upgrades as well seen as though I was re-installing the whole site..I’ve upgraded to the latest branch of Wordress – 2.3 and I’ve internalized the tags so they no longer point to Technorati. I’ve also upgraded all plugins and mods so we should be stable and secure now.

You can now click the tags on the index or inside posts and they will take you to the tag archive page for that tag.

The sites feels a bit faster and more responsive to me after I’ve upgraded to 2.3, but that might just be me.

Do let me know what the performance is like from your side.

I’m most likely going to get a VPS to run Darknet on, so there might be a very minor down-time shortly when I shift over to that, but after that it should be rock steady and fast.

If you spot anything funky or something going wrong/error/weird behaviour/files missing just drop me a comment or use the contact form and let me know.

Regular posting will resume in the next 1-2 days after I get some sleep.

Thanks for the kind words, e-mails and comments – I appreciate it!

    Aw, searching through Google Cache to recover lost posts – sounds familiar to me! Had to do a reinstall a few months ago, lost 100% of my database due to missing backups :( Still had the WP-files though, so I didn’t have to customize my theme to fit my needs again.

    Aw, what a pain! Can’t believe you found them all though, guess that’s testimate to what’s out there; for good and for bad. But for now, backup yr mysql db nightly with something like:

    mysqldump –user=$DB_USER –password=$DB_PASSWD –all-databases | bzip2 > $DB_BACKUP/mysql-date +%Y-%m-%d.bz2

    Then either rotate or have a script whack any files older than 7 days or sumthin. I wouldn’t want you to go through that nightmare again!
