I’ve activated SSL here and for the gallery 🙂
Finished restoring The Vampire Diaries site which means all sites restored Yay! 😀
Now I’m going to take a break for at least one week, or maybe even two, and not even think about sites and updates until I feel like I want to again! Pray that nothing breaks again any time soon and certainly not before I’ve recovered from this disaster!
As the subject says, Star Trek and Xena sites have been restored!
Now starting on The Vampire Diaries site…
Several sites have been showing up with a 502 gateway error since sometime yesterday:
I’ve notified my host.
I’m also personally experiencing internet connection problems at home – my cable modem refuses to connect since day before yesterday, and I haven’t been able to get through to the ISP yet on the phone. I’m currently using my smart phone’s connection which is by a different provider, but it’s upstream is much slower so re-uploading a single zip takes like 4 hours instead of 20 minutes :/
All these problems are frustrating me :/
The following sites have been restored completely:
– http://www.spaceaboveandbeyond.org (except for the https – I have to ask my host about that)
I’m working on the rest…
I have finally gained access to my WHM/cPanels and can start restoring and fixing sites from my personal backups. Looks like I lost updates and uploads from about 3,5 months 🙁 A bunch of sites are still missing from my WHM, and my host is seeing about those. They’re either big, or created/were moved to host in last three months.
Databases are easy and fast to restore but uploading 3 months worth of actual files such as all the screencaps will take time. I’m going to work on the sites in the order, from fastest/easiest first and ones required a lot of file uploads, those will be last (such as gallery.crystalfires.net).
Updates I posted to my Dreamwidth when the sites were down starting a week ago:
Update 2 (February 18th): They’re still restoring everything. I don’t have access to my sites yet so need to keep waiting. Some sites are working but with updates made since after October lost, while other sites don’t load at all and yet more sites having database errors.
Update 1 [February 16th): Ricardo posted about what happened here: https://fan-village.net/2018/02/16/what-
I’m currently waiting for all the restores to complete to see what I have to do.
Something is going on with my host http://www.fan-host.org All my sites are either down or have that just installed server page. I’ve no idea what’s going on as I write this, but I do think it might have something to do with the DDOS attacks fan-host.org and their other services have been suffering lately.
