The phone

So if you didn’t here this weeks Damashe and Michael, Just talking tech (DM Series) podcast episode you should listen to it.
"Listen as Damashe shares his excitement, he hasn’t been this excited since well, um, DM11…
We talked about what to backup, why to back the things up, and tools you can use.
Listen to Backing Up Your Digital Life – DM22 and before the Network ID your going to learn about why i had to re record my part for this episode.

The website crashed?

What? Really?
Ok so not really, but it kinda was like a crash.
If you follow me on twitter you know that every hour, to be exact, every 1.2 hours, I send out an old blog post using a plug-in called“Revive old posts”.
This plug-in is amazing, except I noticed last weekend that it wasn’t posting anything.

Strangely, I logged into my WordPress admin panel.

At least… I thought that was what I was doing…

And was presented with:

"Not Acceptable!

An appropriate representation of the requested resource could not be found on this server. This error was generated by Mod_Security.“”

After some trouble support tickets and some back-and-forth with the hosting team that I was using, I learned that without me being made aware of it they had moved my website to a different server.

The wordpress security plugin i use on Damashe’s recommendation saw that there was something different about where my site was hosted and thought this to be suspicious.

I couldn’t access my website for a couple of days well the Internet updated to provide this plug-in correct information, and now I know how to skip this if it happens in the future.

Lesson learned, I should stop putting off migrating to a Linode.

DM17s “what is shared hosting vs cloud hosting” explains the difference.

that’s why this week’s w-cast was delayed two.

and the computer?

Ironically enough, Wednesday morning when I opened my computer, I noticed that the start up disk wasn’t set properly.

And unfortunately, I couldn’t access any of my files.

But I had a backup of everything that I needed…

Hopefully you do too!

So I reformatted the computer and I have been restoring from that backup, and making a clean backup as well.

I love that tool that Damashe recommended in this weeks episode to back my files up to onedrive. Especially since I’m paying for it
but not using it.

Well, I’m using it now…

backups

So, if you’re not, make a backup of your important digital life today, because you never know what might happen.

  1. What’s up everyone, it’s my first visit at this
    web site, and post is really fruitful designed
    for me, keep up posting such content.

  2. First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick
    question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your mind prior to writing. I have had
    a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Appreciate it!
