PROBLEM WITH SERVER
« on: October 27, 2018, 11:56:41 AM »

There was a problem with the server and the backup did not restore the last couple of months of posts  :'(
I'm trying to solve this.

Ahh that’s a bummer. I was just looking today for that spinning ballerina post in the unrelated section. And PMs are gone as well. :(

Bad news. The backup was not working well. It seems the last good one is from August 31st. I'm still hoping that I can recover them, but we may have lost those posts  :'( :'( :'(

It looks bad. The server is set for automatic daily and weekly backups. But the backup service was not working well and it gave no alarms. The timing between the fail of the backup and the fail of the server during a normal reboot was very bad luck. I cannot believe this happened.
At this point, most likely we lost the data. I'm very sorry.

I have my pm's until early September of this year. You should have only lost pm's from the last month.

That's too bad. It's fortunate that the loss of information was limited to a relatively short period of time.
