Is It Safe Out There Yet?

Friday night we had some people over for dinner. Early in the evening, Kathy told us that her database was corrupted with her site. (She’s a Blogomania client.) Before she left, Mike called her into the study to show her how to “repair” the database in cPanel. Only to find that we were under the seige of a DOS attack.

I was up until 5:30 am this morning.

Then the server that my sites are hosted on, including Blogomania itself, had a hard drive failure this afternoon. My site is hosted away from everyone else’s site so that if any of the other servers have an issue, clients can still access my site. Except for today – today, I was down and no one could access my site for awhile this afternoon.


Everything is fixed now, back to normal, status quo, and I’m breathing easier. Hopefully I’ll be able to get some sleep tonight.
