Due to me being a muppet...

Postby willy_1977 » 01 Sep 2011 16:16

For those in the know: there's this rather useful feature on the delete ftp user that allows you to delete the content of that users ftp directory as you delete the user - a perfectly useful feature unless that user happens to be pointing at your public_html folder... as I said a cluster of gargantuan proportions - but I will learn from my cock up and be doing slightly more regular backups than I have.

I have some piecing together to do tonight when I can get at a backup of the site which is currently at home.

The bad news is - this means that I have lost uploaded pictures and peoples avatars if they've changed / been created after the backup - sorry peeps.

Once again sorry and I will learn from my cock up and from now on will be doing regular backups.

Also I have to update us at some point to ensure we have the security updates but I'm going to piece it back together for now make sure that's bedded in again properly and then move forward after taking a backup :D

I await :ninja: :ninja: :ninja: :ninja:

FFS willey :roll:



Just kidding, seems like an appropriate time to thank you for all your largely unrecognised good work.

I ll buy you a beer, protein shake, i meant protein shake, at the vit. :P

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Fecking brilliant! Surely, it was only a matter of time before we - the club which specialises in fecking things up and clusters - managed to implode its own forum? I'm amazed its taken 2 years for this to happen, including an entire forum swap over.

Fantastic!

I have no fecking idea what you're going on about willy. All I know is the forum went a funny colour yesterday for a wee while which was kind of nice.

Good effort.

Ok - so the initial problem appears to be related to the fact that our web site hosting company has disabled the mail() php function - I could understand doing this for php4 where a security issue was found - but I thought that loop hole was sorted in 5? Jack? anyone in the know?

EDIT: Ok, so it's because it's on a shared server - I'm looking at forcing mails out through our SMTP server but our hosting seems a little clunky around that area...
