My Site has been off the net for about 7 days. It is because I encountered problems with my database. And since I am new to WordPress It took sometime to figure it out. I will share you the experience that I have encountered during reviving this site.

I would like to thank Jeff from Snoobhosting.net my Hosting provider for helping me revive my site.

I lost all my database from October 10,2007 to date. So if you have any links to my site, I will gonna repost it via the back p up that I have thru Windows Live Writer. So it will take time.

I don’t want this thing to happen to all of you guys so, I will share my experience to you later.

    @ Jaypee

    Thanks for the suggestion of WP-DBManager.. I will check it all out.

    Thanks guys for all your suggestion

  • Hi Dex, sorry to hear about what happened. It really sucks when something like this happens and you don’t have backups. I’ve experienced this several times before and I know how it is. Oh well, atleast your blog is back.

    Btw, you might want to install a plugin to backup your database. Try WP-DBManager, it’s what I use and it works for me. Aside from manual backups, you can schedule a backup and have it emailed to you.

    Happy New Year! 🙂

  • Welcome back Dex…
    I think you should install skippy wordpress database plug-in so you won’t lose your precious comment just in case something bad happens..
