Forum database error

    Hi all,

    Today a forum database error occurred and I had to restore a backup. Then I found out there was no backup made since June 2018, so it was my only option to revert to that one.

    I'm truly sorry about the lost threads and posts...

    If you registered after that date, please do so again.

    Again my sincere apologies.

    sorry to hear that it happened out of the blue marvel :(

    guess that means I got a lot of rework to be doing with my guides...

    Yeah I was kinda hoping you had copies at home...

    I'm truly sorry I know a lot of work went into them.

    It's all good. Been able to get back to work on the guides. But it will be time restoring them back to the way they were :P

    I am also backing up the guides now as well so hopefully this problem shouldn't occur in the future again :)

    on another note, Shoora wanted to ask me to ask you guys this: do you guys know why the forums got a database error in the first place? She was curious to know, not that I also asked myself.

    I was removing some old xenforo plugins, that went wrong for some reason and messed up the db. So I wanted to restore a backup, that's when I noticed there weren't any but I already did a mysqladmin drop db :(

    Ah... didn't think that would have caused problems with the forum database. Still it was good that you guys had a back up for the mgftw forums :)

    I've just recently read this thread while confused why I can't log in my previous account (agentsmeagol) anymore. Not sure if this is the cause or I just forgot my password. Out of frustration, I just created a new one. :laugh2:
