We had an issue with the database.  The only way to retrieve them was for George to do a restore from a backup.  Unfortunately this resulted in losing all posts made since 1am EST this morning till just a few minutes ago.  We apologize for this, but it had to be done.  George is going to change the auto scheduled backups to do it more frequently so if this happens again, there won't be as many posts lost.  He is also working to see if he can retrieve ALL the posts since 1am.

I reworded Daniel's post a little as I don't think it was a hack attempt. Somehow a member's account was flagged as spam which in turn deleted all 4,000+ posts and banned his account. Only way to restore was to restore from a backup. I had it setup where it backs up the database twice a day. Once at 1am and once at 1pm. The account being banned occurred at 11:22am so the know good backup was 1am this morning.

 

In light of things I have since changed the backups to occur every four hours. I apologize for any inconvenience.

I only lost one post, and I am not leaving until we get it back. :bigrofl:

All seriousness, whatever has to be done to keep this place running properly, you will not hear any complaining on my end. Thanks for the hard work and dedication.




I can't spell so I keep finding errors to correct lol.

Hey George,

 

  I see no need to apologize as I don`t think anyone here has any reason to complain about the way you handle things around here. So from my point of view, nothing to apologize for and THANKS to you for a job well done!!!

 

     Don.

Thanks for all your hard work, George.

 

I wondered when Cat would be flagged as spam. Were you able to recover all his posts except for the ones where he tried to beat me up?

 

The plan to get rid of cat did not work!!!!

 

Bummer.  But we are not deterred, are we, Mr. VP?  We shall try again!  And we shall succeed!
