I’m a fanatic about doing backups, so when I realized I’d broken this Website while tweaking the settings and couldn’t fix it, I thought I was covered.
I headed over to the BackupBuddy people to download my latest backup and restore it. And that’s when I got the bad news.
There were no backups available!
It seems I’d set up every site I have with daily backups, and I’d certainly installed Backup Buddy on my WordPress site – but I hadn’t set up any backup schedule.
Operator error! I’ve got nobody to blame but myself…
I fought with trying to import my old WordPress database into the new one for a few hours Tuesday, searching for tech articles on my situation, and kept running into hurdles. Yesterday I was fighting off a monster cold that’s been knocking everyone around me off their feet, so I gave myself a treat and downloaded the newest Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson book and spent the day in bed.
This morning, after another try on the tech research, I decided to go back to the beginning and set up the site from scratch.
[updated 6 Apr 2017 3:30] I’ve got the links to my courses and YouTube videos working, a few other details.
Tomorrow I’ll have to sit down and redo the blog I was about to publish when I broke my WebSite.
Sigh… I’ve been in computers since 1979 and I should know better.
Ah, well. I can always blame it on the cold virus!
