I'm super sad to announce that in cause of bad server configuration, entire production database of prismo.news has been accidentally wiped out. Without option to restore it.
You can't imagine how angry i am right now but i assure you i'm gonna write an extended post about that incident with description of everything that happened and lessons learned.
I'm super sorry for your loss, i hope fediverse will forgive me one day.
Stuff likes this will make you more cautious in the future :) We learn from mistakes and without mistakes - how could we ever improve?
@prismo Many posts live on in the Fediverse, for instance here on mastodon.social... Maybe you can use them to do a partial restore?
@prismo it sucks but we will recover and restart 😉
It is the price we pay for doing things ourselves, and not by professional DevOps.
@prismo: Sorry to hear that! I wouldn't worry too much about it, though. When I first started my Mastodon experience, I joined mastodon.rocks. Unfortunately, the server was wiped by accident, meaning that I had to start anew. Hence, that's when I started to get an inkling for just how powerful and wonderful the decentralized fediverse is. :)
@prismo we are humans, we screw up from time to time, sometimes in a spectacular way and that's ok.
I'm sure the community will support you in this moment.
Looking forward to the extended post.
