Ok I’ve just painstakingly restored all the posts I could find since September 10th until now from Google Cache, I’ve lost some of the content of the posts (just a couple) because I was using the more tag…so they weren’t cached on the front page and the individual posts weren’t cached at all
Everything should be back up and working now! All posts are restored.
Anyhow things should all be restored now – and it was incredibly boring…so it shows the power of taking regular backups. I’m incredibly thankful I took my own backup on September 10th…I can’t imagine what it would be like if I hadn’t backed up or it was 2-3 months out of date.
I made a few upgrades as well seen as though I was re-installing the whole site..I’ve upgraded to the latest branch of Wordress – 2.3 and I’ve internalized the tags so they no longer point to Technorati. I’ve also upgraded all plugins and mods so we should be stable and secure now.
You can now click the tags on the index or inside posts and they will take you to the tag archive page for that tag.
The sites feels a bit faster and more responsive to me after I’ve upgraded to 2.3, but that might just be me.
Do let me know what the performance is like from your side, especially now I’m using a Malaysian host it should be much more responsive for local browsers.
Now I gotta set-up some proper back-ups!
If you spot anything funky or something going wrong/error/weird behaviour/files missing just drop me a comment or use the contact form and let me know.
There’s just a couple of image files I’ve found which are missing and the CSS file needs a bit of tweak to get the comments looking nice again – but I think that’s about it.
Upgraded, recovered and back on track.
Regular posting will resume in the next 1-2 days after I get some sleep. I’ve still got 6 million other things to do! Argh!
Thanks for the kind words, e-mails and comments – I appreciate it!
