I am still trembling a bit after yesterdays events.

Still do not know exactly what happened, but my server kind of "exploded"- message from my provider I used virtually all my disk space and this site was in shambles.

Several causes come into question-

1. my own stupidity for not digging into the subject of mail-servers, since that ought to be simple- we all use mailboxes for ages -dont we?
Well- it is not all THAT simple and of course I screwed up the configuration between all mail servers of my different sites and the ones at my provider, causing heaps of error messages.
2. a trojan at a client site that I service.
3. attacks from the east countries on one of my sites with spam.

Anyway- did not sleep very well last night, but my provider restored the server with a back-up. I have all my webs (7 of them) now also on my external hard-drive half a yard away from me and installed and tested a cron-job to repeat that process every week.

My gosh- my nerves- they need a small break. :KO:

:woohoo: You do not know my character hedge- this ultimate victory just inspires. I was waiting for 8 hours yesterday for the restore of my server- I felt powerless- not in control over things- could not do anything, which was a lot more nerve racking than doing something.

Know I know for 90% what the cause was- deleted 8000+ account applications for my webdesign drupal site.
Did not pay attention simply and my mail systems were configured incorrectly, so I didnt see it.

If anybody heard of CMS for websites (Content Management Systems) and want to start their own thing- simply take wordpress- simple and not bad- Joomla is much better, but too much for you if you are clueless. Drupal will kill you- it almost got me- but almost so to speak.

I am still alive . :woohoo:

Fas, Guess the fact that server is down is reason why you have not had a reply from your open letter to Dean.
