Update on the Bunker

Post by Mr I on Thu Apr 25, 2013 1:15 am

Basically we were attacked by a virus mob attempting an SQL injection. The hosting company (1and1) locked the account and somehow managed to corrupt the container.

Right then, what to do now? lock the site into repair mode (Hows your Linux shell commands?) download the database via SSH, reimage, reinstall and away we go. Ermm no. The database exceeds the file transfer limits set by the hosting company. So now we try and download everything individually, table by table. Great except it crashed and crashed and crashed again. This is all because of tight rules imposed by the host because of the initial attack.

Then I ran out of talent. Jimbo, a mate from work then started to assist last night. He managed to grab all the files and we are moving the hosting. We are also updating the board to a new version. The board will be up and running hopefully this evening in old style look and we'll update the software over the next week.

The good news is that it will now be hosted on our own server, no more will we have to rely on 1and1 for x,y & z.

It's been a fucking nightmare!!!

No wonder it'll be up and running again soon.

Well there's a virtual pint on the way from me when you get it sorted.
I was really quite shocked that Maggie's funeral managed to fuck all the Web Servers up.

Didn't understand a word of that but it sounds like you've had to do a lot of work to do. Best of luck with the rest of it. Might cheer you up to know that I knacked my knee while dancing on Maggie's grave and now need an op on my medial meniscus affraid .

Sounds like a flippin' nightmare!

Give us a shout if I can help you at all. Company I work for might be able to do us a good hosting deal too.

Cheers

Cheers Stu.

As for Maggie's funeral; theres a few tales to tell on that! I walked into the church with a couple of other guys; myself, a Welsh Guardsman and Rob Horsfall. (He's got a few war stories - google Robin Horsfall).

Anyway we sat down in the pew and a familiar looking woman turned round and smiled. It took me a little while to realise it was Joan Collins. Afterwards I found myself having a piss with John Redwood on one side and Douglas Hurd on the other. Tory public schoolboys are not people you want to be in close toilet proximity with!! Anyway, more to come on all that.

Couldn't you just get people to join another forum and stage a hostile takeover?

Netmums would be good cos they're a bit slutty but if your lass asks you can be checking childcare or other metrosexual stuff instead of sending messages to desperate women just like your lass but who are somehow happier to put out without being spoiled.
