On Saturday morning, I was backing-up the forum, quite a straightforward task, and then I usually delete the oldest ones, keeping the six most recent back-ups in the forum, just in case.
When deleting the old backups, there are two buttons, side by side, one to delete the selected backup, and one to restore the selected backup, and I hit the wrong button. Worse, there is no prompt - 'Are You Sure' - type message to make sure that's what you want to do. Instinctively, I tried to stop what was happening by closing the browser, which may have made things worse, with hindsight.
Anyway, I posted on the forum of the people who make the forum, and they advised me to simply restore the latest backup, which should fix it. But, and this is where one of the forums weaknesses was revealed, any backups over 2mb in size can cause problems when restoring. My backups are 18mb! A kind guy tried to get me back running, however, it was not to be. Furthermore, I've been advised to use another way to backup the forum, which is quite usual, but I never knew until it's too late.
Listen, nobody is more upset than me, I certainly learned a few lessons this week. I hope the incident won't stop you talking about that big ship!
