Stupid mistake – fix in 9 hours time

In: Personal

27 Aug 2004

I made a stupid mistake while backing up my files on the old server and uploading them to the new one. That’s the problem when you have 2 similar SFTP windows (1 for uploading, 1 for downloading) and taking part in multiple chat sessions. You tend to not notice that you’re uploading to the server you’re supposed to be downloading from.

So this is the default WordPress template you’re seeing right now. I remember making another backup copy at work so in 9 hours time, fingers crossed, things will be back to normal.

Oooooooooh :-(

I hope you find another backup as I really loved your design and I guess it was quite “a bit” of work…

Fingers crossed!

Aww… I like it… it’s sooo minimalist. (I think we’ve all had a too many windows incident; I shut down the wrong mail server at werk before.)

Phew it’s back. When I went to office the aforementioned “backup copy” didn’t exist.

Lucky I have (somewhat dated) local copies of index.php and wp-comments.php and after a little tweaking, all seems to be well. Not after some messing around with the WordPress source because some changes have been done to the 2004-08-26 nightly since the last nightly build that I’ve used. The danger of living on the bleeding edge.

So you switched to Linode? Is it any good? Satisfied with their services?

I’m considering switching hosts as well, and I want some form of VPS/Root access as well.
