Twinsunica down...

I don't know what the situtation is, but I sent this to [email address]...
Quote:
Dear free.fr,

I'm the webmaster of http://wacko.free.fr/ and since about 30 hours ago, it seems all the data on it is missing. Accessing any directory gives me a 403 error. I'm also no longer able to log into FTP, and when going to the SQL manager all the data is missing.

Could you please tell me what's going on here? One of the sites stored on there has been worked on by many people for hundreds of hours in total; it would be an outrage if this site turned out to be deleted. You could have at least warned me, and given me a few days to move this website.

I would be really happy to hear if this is just temporary (moving data to other servers?) or if you would at least provide me with recent backups.

Thank you very much in advance for looking into this problem.

Awaiting your kind response,

~Bauke Karel
I haven't made backups in months, so practically all data would be lost if they can't help...

Yes, luckily... I used some of them when accidentally deleting some values...


However, the editings of the articles were saved nowhere but in the Twinsunica....




Anyway, I suggest an immediate back-up as soon as we get back online... If we do, that is.....

Truly disheartening. I never thought that the Twinsunica could be lost for good. All that hard work. Even if we use the thread, it'll still take a while to get everything back to the way it was, and it probably won't even be at 100%.

my ftps, WTF !!!

ARGH, too risky not to make backups, if it's a hdd crash or something like that it may hurt >_<. But all my ftps are dead as well, so it must be a bigger problem, something around connections or software, and they must still have the datas or backups of them somewhere.

Hum Bu's temple is dead as well (did you notice the phpmyadmin/mysql system still worked ?), but I'm a backup maniac so I've got about 7 recent versions of it.

Yes, but the data is missing..

I checked three free.fr sites that are down, but they're all on different servers.. so it can't be that just one server died, or something. Unless they're all linked to a central server for data storage.

Looks like the site is down again now...


edit:
Well, probably just some temp problem, as we are back online now . Well, I won't be surprised if we see some more problems like these in the coming days...


edit 2:
Well, the Twinsunica does work now, but extremely slowly...

Free.fr seems to have problems now because they have too many users for their installations, hope it'll change from now on.

Actually ONLY my site was down, I've even thought that free.fr had detected how much I overused their webspace providing and deleted my account......but it's ok it seems, low bandwidth but no data loss

PS : I immediately backup Twinsunica, it's not that I dont trust people but...

Yatta!
I made a backup just now.
Only 1.12 MB, but very delicate .

I'm glad it's "fixed".

1.12 Mo ? The mysql database, that's all.....you may have some more things to know concerning the art of backups
If you one day need the 98 left Mo of your site, just pm me

Yeah, the files were backed up ofcourse, it's even a mirror straight from my hdd. It's the database contents I was concerned about.

Well, the stats page (http://bauke.free.fr/stats/lba.html) are also working again and updated daily as before. Everything should be up and running again.
I'm really glad the data for the Twinsunica and ofcourse the RMP weren't missing after all

Yeah...

I'm much less worried than before though, because I know there is a back up .
