Server Data Loss

The server we currently host on lost 48 hours worth of database information as of this evening around 10:00p EST. A member of the server administration team accidentally made a huge error and deleted important configuration files that collapsed the database server and caused a wipe of the data.

Our backups were two days old. They should have been a lot younger, however, the server didn”t seem to make a backup last night or tonight correctly, so 48 hours is the best we can do.

We will be moving servers to one that is not run by one of our hosts, since it has proved that we can not rely on the technical guarantee that this server will remain online for more than a couple days before something goes wrong.
