The Worst Day Ever at Boiled Over

On March 4th I received an email from my mother-in-law stating that Boiled Over was a blank white page. I thought to my self what could be wrong I was just on there a couple days ago.

I entered the site to see….a blank page! I again though to myself, what could be wrong, maybe I should have upgraded WordPress as my host suggested…

Nope! After a little investigating I realized that Boiled Over had been deleted in it’s entirety. That right…everything was gone except for my design folder and all the images I uploaded over the past 4 years.

After crying the day away and thinking how could a project I have no monetary value in and only did as a tribute to my son be gone…entirely gone, four years worth of work that has earned us a great place with Google.

A few emails to BlueHost and I still had no answers.

“Wordpress was deleted from your account on February 24th for the domain”

Are you kidding me…The site was deleted from my account, I would never do that! The only conclusion I can come to is that we were HACKED! Someone out there in the great World Wide Web does not like us…BUT we don’t care!

After hours and hours of scraping Google for cache pages (thank goodness they had them) and a site backup from 2009 (yes, I should have a more recent one) we were back up and running.

I WILL NEVER LET THIS SITE DIE! It is a tribute to the one thing we lost that we loved so very much, Our Son Dustin! I created this site as a place for people to vent, a place that people could complain about anything that bothered them without reaping the repercussions that come with everyday life.

With all that’s going on in today’s world, we all need a place like Boiled Over…a place to vent and move on with our lives. Whether you’re pissed about work, politics or the people you are around every day…have your say on Boiled Over!

    Wow this would make me extremely upset as well, I can’t even begin to think what I would if my site went down. Great work on getting it back up! I usually back up my data weekly, some hosts offer free back up as well.

    Thanks for the thought Alex. I’m always lax about backing up this site but I really learned my lesson this time. Now I have automatic backups set up!

    would this be by new user regestration is not allowed? i tried to register and it says something like “new user regestration is not currently allowed?” once this is fixed would it be possable for someone to email me so I can sign up, I’ve been reading the posts on the site and I find this very helpful.
