ForumsSoftware ← Forum Data Loss Friday 1/18


In the course of regular site development tasks, I made a mistake that nuked forum posts that were created Friday January 18th, 2019.

While working to shuffle some production data to the staging server for testing, I accidentally restored a database backup to the production server. The backup snapshot was created at 6 am today. Unfortunately this means any forum activity today was irretrievably nuked.

Sorry we lost your posts. I hope you can remember the things that you said that were important.

I remember I scanned the posts and someone had two suggestions: one about more or virtual attenuverters, and I can't remember the other...

You know that you're allowed to delete production data bases just once in your career as a developer. ;)
