Forum back online after a big crash

So we went offline for 1 week !!!!!!

What happened, or what they wrote that has happened:
someone did disconnect manually an array of hard disk from the wrong server in Iceland.
then they re-connected them
they saw a corrupted filesystem.
they restored a backup
the backup was corrupted
they went back date with other backups, all corrupted until one that was 8 weeks ago.

luckily I do every few days a manual backup, so I was having a backup dated 29 of September.

but we lost some topics.

what I ask people for, since everyone does receive emails if he is subscribed to a topic/forum, the most important one to recover is a couple of post in the pharaonic connection, this one http://loohanforum.orgoneitalia.it/viewtopic.php?id=484

if you have in your emails these missing post, please copy and paste here or in the thread...

then... the technician has to re-enable encryption and few minor details. So we are unencrypted now...  when they will re-enable this encryption we will change passwords again....


So, in the end they give me 6 months of service for free.... but 1 week of offline was a lot.... I miss you all guys, now back to work! ;-)

Re: Forum back online after a big crash

Jakub for the SSL we have, unfortunately, to still wait.
I think they still have some web account to fix, then they will go back to check other stuff such as Let's encrypt.

by the way, even with the correct daily backup, such SSL will had to wait 7 days+....

seems easy but a server has usually a lot of custom fixes that is not very easy to retrieve after such a crash.

they haven't got a good image btw, 7 days to completely restore everything.

off course, after enabling it again, I would suggest everyone to change psw again...
btw I look at logs. doesn't seems too much people reading but for sure they sniff data....everywhere...

Re: Forum back online after a big crash

ok SSL is active again
I would suggest to change passwords... at least for people that have logged yesterday when SSL was inactive
