Crashed My Blog
oops! I crashed my blog
I’m having to start my blog over again from the beginning!!! I working on my last update to finish my blog set up and the worse thing happened. Yup! You guessed it! My brand new blog crashed. It apparently didn’t like the code I entered in the back end. The moment I clicked save I lost all connection to the back end, dashboard and the front page went completely white. I had no way back in to fix it. It was a dumb move on my part. I hadn’t saved or backed up my site yet. I wanted to get my blog completely set up and saved before I backed it up. That didn’t happen.
It’s been a major struggle to get my blog setup. On the bright side I can put my blog back together without the mistakes I made the first time.
The restore feature on EasyWp from NameCheap.com was simple to use. It only took a few minutes to restore from a backup. I had created a back up the second day I started the blog. So everything was at the beginning.
All of my post from Sept and all of my drafts for October were gone. I was getting ready for November and working on drafts for December. I also lost the majority of my blog setup, my affiliates, email list, photo’s, special codes, I had gotten help with. All Gone! It’s a learning experience. At least it happened now at the start of my blog and not years later.
I’ll try not to make that mistake again. I’m scheduling on my calendar a reminder to back up. I haven’t decided if I want to do it weekly or monthly.
Friendly reminder to always back up your work every now and then.
