Official Data Loss 29 May 2020


That's Numberwang!

Hi Members,

This evening we attempted an upgrade to the latest patch of the XenForo software that we run here at Forumer. In the process, the site crashed and we lost some data -- about 5 posts.

Unfortunately - this is a situation that can happen from time to time.

Here at Forumer, we take hourly backups. It turns out that sometimes, hourly backups aren't enough to stop data loss.

We do apologize for this.

Edit: As a result of this event, we have bumped our backups to half-hourly.

It’s unfortunate that this has occurred but like you say, it does do sometimes.
Moving to a half-hour backup schedule should better protect us going forwards though :)
