So my server went crash bang boom

I’m not sure if anyone noticed but I’m missing about 2 months of articles here on my blog. Over the weekend I spent most of my time trying to recover data from a USB Enclosure without success for my personal blog here at seomkt.

Overall I’m not too disappointed seeing I haven’t been blogging much anyways so I maybe lost 20 articles at the most. None the less a loss is a loss so I will try to write a few times over this month to get some more new content for everyone to read.

So what have I learned over the last 48 hours?

1. No matter how sure you are create weekly backups
2. Stop being lazy and saying I’ll do it later.
3. Don’t get out of the habit and stop making backup.
4. Back up your data to your PC instead of the server.

Creating weekly backups will help you keep data and content in case of situations like I had arise. Make sure to back up your system as often as possible and download it to your personal PC.

    I’ve installed plugin “WordPress Database Backup”.

    It automatically creates backup everyday and sends them to my email.

    I feel safe with it 🙂

    But I’ve need a real backup only once, because of inaccurate WP update..

    Hi Brian,
    I think you can through this fiasco with flying colors all things considered.

    Do you ever think about making PDF’s of your posts? Do you think that would be worthwhile?

    I’m really happy to see your site back up. Cheers!

    Yes! back things up! back things up! I always used to say I’ll do it, sure just a bit later, and then learned the hard way! Not fun at all…..sounds like you did too. Bet you will never not back up your stuff again! I know I have never forgotten or procrastinated since then. Sorry to hear that though!

  5. Well now at least now I know that I am not the only one who suffered when my personal computer crashed. And precisely, we really must have a back up. If not on a weekly basis at least bi-monthly, that way, not all files will be lost. I lost all my files couple of months ago, and man..it really messed up my life for a week or so. So, to avoid things like this, back it up, always. Thanks for sharing it too.
