Some Forum Messages Lost
Trust me, rm -rf is a very dangerous command... *sigh*
I was cleaning out some old files on the cfd-online.com server when I accidently wiped out the entire directory for the cfd-online.com site. This happened half an hour ago.
Fortunately we had a backup which was just 6 hours old, which I have now restored. Messages posted to the forums in the last 6 hours have been lost though.
I apologize for the incident. Those whose message are gone are of course very welcome to re-post them now. I promise I won't do rm -rf again
Also, if anyone notice anything missing or something not working as usual please email me asap. I hope that everything aside from the few lost forum messages is restored now, but it isn't easy to check all parts of the site.
Cleaning backup files with rm -rf at midnight after having had a few beers is not a good idea *ugh* Running automated backups with rsync in a cron job can save your ass though. It sure did this time.
