I was backing up WordPress, using the backupwordpress plugin. It got hung up on a file name it felt was too long, so I canceled the backup.

Or I thought I did.

This morning, in trying to fix it, I have somehow wiped the contents of this blog, or at least, it’s now in a place I can’t find it.

The blog that goes to this plugin has been inactive for two years, and I can’t find an email address for the plugin maker.

So there you go.

Fucked up beyond all recognition. Nice start to my Saturday.

UPDATE as of last night: Obviously, I’m still here. Linksky, my fabulous host, saved my bacon. It seems that the backupwordpress plugin not only caused me great consternation, but a whole lot of people across the server I share with them. I was told, in no uncertain terms, never ever ever to use that plugin again. Furthermore, that I need to start using the CPanel backup utilities, not the WordPress ones (excluding, I’m going to assume, the export function.) So I’m sharing that advice with you.

    It recovered on its own. After a frantic morning and not knowing WTF happened or how to fix it or even which questions to start asking, I left it alone and went to do some construction-type stuff.

    And now, here it is. Weird.

    Must have been my host, Linksky (they are SOOO awesome). Been with them about six years now and not regretted one minute of it.
