    The site seems to be back to normal, but everything from over the weekend has vanished. Any way to get this stuff back?

    I'm hoping so ... but I would imagine the site was restored to the most recent backup that was run before whatever caused the issue happened.

    Yea if they resorted to a backup I don't think anything is coming back.

    Or I have no fucking clue what I'm talking about, and I'm just a pessimist.

    If they do Incremental or Differential backups, we may have the last Full backup restored now and a more recent Incremental or Differential backup restored later.

    I feel like an entire chapter in the Big D saga is now forever gone to the void. I feel empty. Hold me, D.

    I assume the database was corrupted. Otherwise I can't imagine that a server rollback would have also required a database rollback, otherwise.

    I'm sure the future holds the arrival of things worthy of honorable mention

    The way things are progressing and given past trends, that future seems to be slipping farther and farther towards infinity...

    Site restored to 3/10/17. This was a super odd one. Server maxed out on memory and some file permissions (the CSS ones) got changed.

    Reviewing logs right now. Might have been a DOS attack. VM went from a measly 283mb to max. Probably time to upgrade server plans to better absorb this stuff.

    When I was a graphic designer. Sometimes the idea in your head never comes back. It's not elementary. Then what do you do if you lose the work? Sorry this has happened to such a nice group.

    It's only two days. Content has been light recently.

    This company has sold a couple of times. They used to run the internet backbone. Anyway, they still are the shit. Aplus.net.

    Never once let me down with close to 100 websites with e-commerce too.

    It's probably HFM expressing their angst.

    I actually was thinking that this was perfect timing for losing a few days. Maybe I'm not in the twilight zone anymore.

    Having VM websites is a joke. A standard IP address one is really the go.
