Site Data Loss

So, I experienced quite a bit of data loss and was forced to restore the site from a quite dated backup. I won’t be re-writing the posts that were lost for now, but I will be setting up a more resilient backup solution, most likely off-site.

Sucks.

About My Server

For those interested, here is some specs on what’s running the site:

Hardware:

MSI Wind

1.6GHz Dual Core Atom Processor

2GB of RAM

1TB Harddrive

Internal Wireless Card, 10/100 Ethernet

Operating System:

XBMC Live (Ubuntu-based, boots in ~30s)

Software:

XMBC, Mumble, Minecraft Server (more on this below), Deluge, Apache, MySQL

Minecraft Server:

The Minecraft server runs Craftbukkit with the following plugins:

AdminCmd, ChatterCraft, MagicCarpet, MapMarkers, Nanobot, Runecraft, WorldEdit

The Minecraft world is backed up every 30 minutes.  Overviewer is installed at tylerphawkins.com/minecraftmap/ and it updates nightly.

Other Thoughts:

There’s other stuff running on the server and special configurations for different things, but most of it was made only for me.

 

[Update 12/3/11]

I now run the site on an EC2 instance.  This machine now is media-center only.
