    Hey...

    The importance of backup..
    An hour ago everything was OK.

    I have a very active blog running, so I'm on it most day.
    Suddenly I get the famous error: Error establishing a database connection (Which I thought I'd never see).

    Login to Cpnel - All my Databases are gone..
    I have a backup of-course, but this is bad.. I am going to host with hostgator tomorrow.


    REMEMBER TO BACKUP!

    It wasn't me and no one hacked the Cpanel account since the last IP address is exactly mine..

    But hosting companies make mistakes sometimes.

    Doesn't the hosting company make weekly backups themselves? Hostgator does it.

    Sucks to lose websites like that though :(

    It's a small company that I signed up with when I just started..
    Today I am independent, but when I started it was just a side thing along with my main work.. so I picked some cheap hosting company I found.

    I don't wanna state their name bcz it may damage them.
    For a few years, they had been good to me, I did basically everything I wanted on their servers & their support was well..

    99.99% no one here host with them or never will so forgive me guys, I rather skip the name.
