Recent Loss of Data on Site

Post by Rob » 16 Jul 2019 14:04

Hi Everyone,

as you've probably noticed, we've had some issues with the site after an upgrade introduced some problems. We lost some users, posts, and images.

Today we have restored the database from a backup, and the missing users and posts appear to have returned. However, we haven't yet been able to restore the images. We are working on it.

Also, any posts made after the 2nd July have disappeared - this being because our database backup was from the 2nd July, so has restored the site to that date.

If you experience any other issues while using the site, please let me know.

Wow this is amazing!

Thank you so much for repairing the site and being able to bring back my account and a few others. I'm so relieved to know that all of my posts have saved.

Kudos to the whole Oracle team!

I'm glad to be back!

Oh thank the stars
I really need to do a written backup (man I'm lazy)
But we all thank you so so much for being wonderfully prepared and made backups for the site
We all thank you

Time is ticking,like a clock.The world is this clock and the rust wants to tarnish its beauty and destroy this time.
So it can create its own.
