Couple of days back I had written a post on my brother's website getting hacked and the importance of regularly backing up your websites. Well, guess what? The database of this forum crashed and when I tried to restore the database, the database was 2 months old! I am using a third-party shell script to automate the backups of my database. Although I was downloading the backups to my PC, I was not verifying it. It was my negligence and I have to pay dearly for it. Almost 2 month's data lost. Another big mistake I did was not to create a backup of the database before trying to restore it. It was only later I found from the support that some errors can be fixed by attempting a repair on the database. My sincere apologies to all members for erasing 2 month's worth of posts in one shot I'm changing hosts too. From the day I changed my hosting plan, something or the other is going wrong. And the support staff aren't helpful either.
