View Full Version : It's called not having a backup...
I accidentally blew away my pixelpost db... One of those deleting something else (a test install of oscommerce) - and slipping down a bit on the mouse and answering yes to that lovely 'are you sure' message...
Thankfully - I'd only been adding photos for a month and only lost data on about 30 shots.
Oh well... :)

Yup, I have been in the same shoes.

check with your host, some do backups every so often and can restore data with the last few days.
one time there was a serious issue that went wrong with pixelposts forum, i wasnt able to upload my backup on a slow connections, e2 had everything from 2 days before...we lost some posts and user data...but shit happens and it was a grave relief not to lose three weeks of posts and stuff
In all honesty - I wanted to change a few things anyway. Sad to see them go, but not too sad if you know what I mean. If there was anything I was too upset about losing, I'd definitely ask my webhost to look for a backup. Knowing how well they run things - I'm sure they have it.
I've worked with data/databases for a living for well over a decade - definitely a wow I'm an idiot - I know better type of thing. But nothing catastrophic. :)
