This is a warning to all of internet bloggers. Please, please and please backup your database(s) each time you publish new posts to your website. I don’t want what had happen to me maybe someday will happen to you.
Recently, my site has problem with 403 error in all subfolders under cypherhackz.net including subdomains. At first, I thought I did something wrong but I’m sure I didn’t edit any permissions that will give me the 403 Forbidden page. So I asked my hosting provider to check it out. After awhile, they reply my email and said that they have fixed the problem and my site is ready to go.
So I open up my site then I got this page:
My first impression when read this was shock, angry, frust, sad, everything negatives came into my mind. I don’t know what had happen to my database. Why it got disappeared? I don’t want to blame my hostee. I don’t want to blame anyone. Although I have some backup files but my last backup was 21st September. And it quite old. Hmm… Want or not, I have to use the backup file.
So my advice to those who read this is, always backup your databases. Don’t let this happen to you. Thanks you for your time… [tags]backup, tips, secure[/tags]
ps: Is my site load slower than before?
