Recent downtime......

Post by babybmwadmin » Wed Feb 27, 2013 8:30 pm

Apologies for the recent downtime.

I'm sure you all enjoyed meeting your partners and families for the first time as you weren't on here :wink:

Not 100% sure what actually happened, but involved backing up lots of data, sending numerous emails to my host and waiting numerous hours for replies that were more than enjoyable to read given the lack of grammar and spelling :oops:

Anyway, no data appears to be lost since the site played up yesterday afternoon.

What I will say is that in the event that this happens again, I'll need to do further digging and possibly an even bigger restore from scratch :shock: which would result in longer downtime.

I originally thought it may have been something to do with Tapatalk, so I uninstalled it, and then reinstalled it.

If it does happen, please let myself and the mods know via the facebook page.

Fingers crossed.......

thanks

There is some missing data from the looks. I had posted in Graeme's thread 13 days till, but they aren't there, but that's no biggie.

Any update on the Tapatalk side of things?

Thank god it's back up. I was fearing having I interact with my missus when she's moaning at me. Instead I can be on here browsing pretending I'm working.

Good work btw

Glad you fixed it, Ive only been here five minutes and felt lost! My family are miles away so had to waste time on pistonheads with a romantic microwave horse meat meal for one last night! I would have cooked for myself if it wasnt for the depression of pistonheads, please dont let it happen again! :lol:

Nice work in getting it back up
please take time to just ask someone how they are. Kindness costs nothing, but means everything.
