site's back.


Only took an hour and a half to copy the whole DB and start things back up. I feel much better having a backup again, though ;)

Also, since I never posted about it the other day... We had an extended downtime a few days ago (as I'm sure everyone noticed.) which went from 7:30am EST to about 3pm EST.

Three things failed that morning, and the master database server had to run checks on all of its tables. That took five hours. The rest of it wasn't as simple. I won't go into details since it's not really worth it.
All in all, I upgraded the software and changed some settings. Things have been happy since.
