Site back up


Pleased to report that DragonDrop.org is again fully operational after its server completely died. It’s now been moved to a new server and restored from backups. Thanks to my ace cousin who stayed up most of a whole night to get it sorted. I’ve still not got all my email back but that’s on its way.

It was quite scary. It was something like loosing a beloved pet. Thank goodness for server side backups. I’ve since set about a double back up system by employing a neat wordpress plug-in that automatically backs everything up, including the database, to a dropbox folder. Hopefully, I’ll not need it ever again.
