Due to an issue at my hosting provider, my server has been deleted.
So, pxlfd.me is down, sorry.
My last backup is 2 or 3 months old...
As soon as I get my server back, I'll restore what I have and setup an automatic backup...
Now I've learned something, never trust anybody and always do backup
⚠️ pxlfd.me is back online! ⚠
There is more than 5 months deleted, but it looks like it works, so...
Really sorry about all of this
Also, now there is a backup of Pixelfed data everyday stored during 1 month, so normally, I won't get a new lose like that
It's worse than I thought... Last backup is from the 10 february 2019...
Did you change provider or not ?
To be honest, no
I'll do it later, but firstly I want to make a better setup for my instance, the server-side is a bit too messy so to get it back fast, I was obliged to just reinstall it on the same server
Also, I got 3 months free so...
@Whaxion Sorry to hear that, hope everything turns out ok.
@Whaxion "Always back up" is this wonderful lesson everyone has to learn for oneself
@Whaxion set up a CRON job to toss an archive up to Amazon Glacier. I keep a years worth of weekly backups, literally terabytes of storage, for something like $15/mo.
Think of it less as “can I afford backups,” and more like “can I afford not to have backups?”
I'll do with OVH Archive Storage, it cost less and I don't have a lot of data
Yes, I've thought, but my internet connection isn't stable enough and I still live at family house...
Sometimes I got ping of 1s so.. And I only have 7Mb in upload so for a Pixelfed instance, it's not great... Also, we're 3 at home (4 but one doesn't use internet), some when we are all connected, the modem just doesn't work like it should
But thanks for your advice! 😊
