It sounds alittle crazy but it’s actually true. But wait how is it I have several neighbors who have Time Warner Cable? How did they get their Cable TV and Internet?
So I now post this via my new AT&T DSL connection that only took 3 days and 1 phone call to activate.
Welcome to the rebuild. If you notice something missing it is my Database.
After launching another WordPress powered site on the Godaddy hosting account I have, I ran into some major problems. Godaddy has a MySQL dashboard that can automatically delete a database with little or actually no manual intervention. So upon install of WordPress on a separate domain, the database for this domain was deleated.
But, you would think there is a back up, right? Yeah, me too. I had actually set their hosting dashboard to automatically back up the Database but it seems as if Godaddy’s MySQL automated back up system in their dashboard does not work either. When I called Godaddy up this Sunday to point out the issue and ask if they have anyway to recover the data they say “Yes! they can recover the data” – but they want $150.00. Even after I showed them this was all caused by their system and they agreed – they still said I would have to pay. So as opposed to paying the $150.00 fee to have them retrieve the data I will just rebuild the site. Lucky for me I could go to Google’s cache of the site and pull most of the front end code and content I needed.
Lesson learned – back up manually, Or at least set up my own back up and test it several times. Also, I might suggest to others don’t rely on Godaddy, I for one should know better then to use a discount domain company to provide working software and services for hosting. Let’s all learn from my mistake.
I am eating steak. After much debate I’ve decided that 2 months in Brazil was the perfect way to spend the rest of the summer. In order to make things more interesting I am back on the steak train! Realizing that it may be difficult to continue on my Veggie/Fish diet in a country know for Churrasco, Steak and even some Bacon are now on the daily menu.
I am also launching BrazilianPousada.com. BrazilianPousada.com along with a few other additional travel sites yet to be named will act as your typical independent Travel resource but specifically focusing on high end, luxury Pousada’s of Brazil.
The sites are still a work in progress, using modified WordPress templates and a handful of plugins I hope to get the most out of each site. Comments and suggestions would be great.
