WTF?

Filed under: News,Site,Software — Erwin @ 9:37 pm

Somehow, at some point, all of my is-here.com content disappeared. Dear Josh tried to point this out to me but he was too subtle (ahem) and I thought he was merely poking fun at the agregator I had put on the site (quite) a while ago. Nope…

Thankfully the WordPress DB was still there but the custom theme and various uploads and other mods (local plugins) are still gone. I’ll have to see if I can drag those out of a backup tonight. 🙁

Update: Most (hopefully all) images restored.

Update: I guess DH purged the content because it got hacked? I don’t remember ever being notified about them doing such a thing, unfortunately, so either they never did, or it got lost in my spam folder. Found a rogue wp-content/plugins/SK2/sk2_plugins/doc.php and several other rogue files. The words this sucks massively don’t come even close to describing how it feels to see this now. I’ve configured the WP installs on DH to be upgraded automatically from now on and will try to figure out if this was a problem with SK2, WP, or something else.

  1. Is this the part where I nudge you about your RSS feed being “unavailable” for the last couple of years? *cough*

    -K.

  2. What’s an RSS feed? 😉

    On a more serious note, I thought http://is-here.com/feed/ worked all along.
