Fuzzfinger Gaming

Some of you may have noticed that the Fuzzfinger Gaming website has been in maintenance mode for the last 24 hours or so. Well, that’s because beforehand I was deleting some spam sign up accounts and accidentally included my own admin account when I hit delete! I sank in my chair as I quickly noticed that all the content associated with that account, ie all blog posts and site pages, were gone!

Fortunately, after calming down I realised that everything had been placed into WordPress’ trash folders so my content was not permanently deleted… It was just a case of creating a new admin account in PHPmyAdmin (thanks to a handy web guide since I am not naturally too techie) and restoring the content from the trash. However, none of the images associated with the content were working so I still had to manually sort out all of the links which took a few hours.

Anyway, the lesson I learned is that old homage: back up your blooming data – something I will definitely be doing regularly from now on. It’s hard to believe how one single careless mouse click can be the cause of so much trouble.

So, if you come across any broken links or bugs while browsing I would appreciate it if you would let me know. Since this website is the work of one person (me), it is almost certain that I would have missed something…

Panic over… for now!

    Sorry, to hear that. Actually, I've been there done that. Just to let you know there a lot of plugins that will back the site up automatically for you and even reinstate it if needed.
