Missing logs

Post by bothap » Sun Dec 08, 2013 4:11 pm

Hi,

It appears that several users(including myself) posted their Questions on Friday 7 December 2013 under the PM group and when returning later, found their entries no longer exist.

Are any backups made/kept?

Do you keep change logs?

What has happened?

Hi bothap,

We noticed the problem - it is on all forums - but there's no log of what happened.
Seems to be mostly Thursday that's gone (western Europe time zone).
We'll have to wait for the administrator to have a look to find out.

The reason for these missing posts was a major server crash.
What can be has been recovered and moved to another server, but I guess those posts are lost.
