My Mistake

You might have noticed that the site disappeared for a few hours. I did something really really stupid. It meant that my Linux server was completely messed up and I've had to start again. If you're reading this, I've made a start. Please bear with me.

Lessons learnt:

1. Never take the cheap option when buying server space. Don't opt out of regular backups just to save a pound a month. I'm an idiot.

2. Don't play around with Linux commands that you don't really understand.



  1. Are you running on that virtual server thingymagig....?

  2. Yep and it's been great until yesterday when I realised that Yahoo hates small servers. They'd blocked me and emails weren't getting through. So I realised I needed to install a proper email server, which is where I managed to corrupt my entire installation. Worked till 4am to get things working and I'm only about 25% done.
