I should really backup my blog

This morning, I had a bit of a fright when I found my blog had reverted to a version from Jan 25th 2005! It was the baby pink design with the Warhol-wannabe colour pics of me. Yikes, what a flashback!

Thankfully, it was only a temporary fluke as the webhost’s DNS servers crashed and the wrong records were restored, meaning my domain pointed to the old machine it used to be hosted on.

After a moment of panic (at 7am *yawn*) I dragged Andrew out of bed to call the hosting company and ensure things got fixed.

Let’s just say I’m going to backup my blog more often now, just in case…

    Every Sunday I login to PHPMyAdmin and download the WordPress tables with all my content on.

    I should really get around to mirroring the actual files: images, music samples, etc. though.

    Losing everything is a nasty prospect…
