  • Way Off-Topic Angry admin destroys everything (including half town)

    Hi,


    One of my admins got angry today: he deleted all the files on the server. Not only did he deleted them, but he overwrote the files with porn, then deleted the porn files also. Therefore recovery is unlikely. After this, he got an axe and smashed the server with it. Apparently this wasn't enough: he went to a local gas station, bought a gallon of gas then poured the gas on the server. Soon after this, he set the server on fire. Still suspecting that the management may somehow recover the files, he decided to put the whole building on fire.

    BUT ... bad news always come in pairs: as it turns out, the admin had some contacts in the military. He asked the military to come and bomb the neighborhood, which they promptly did. Now, there is not one single building still standing near the place where the server was located.

    Now, why did I told you this sad story ? Despite the fact that I have no backup ... can you help me to put the site back online ? If VB support is as great as they say, then they should solve this one quickly.


    Regards,
    Razvan

      They are, but this is Chit Chat forum and you should ask to have this move to support forums. You also need to give more information into what you need done, but you also need to know if you have a copy of a working database backup and or access to download vBulletin zip / tar files.

      Posting in support forum should be your first move.

        Jose:

        I don't think you actually read his post carefully. It is apparently a "spoof" of the post he referenced, embellishing his farce to make it completely absurd.

          Indeed, you need to place a support ticket, this is not the place to ask for support.

            Did not bother seening this PS, as I do not like acronyms if not used properly 'P.S.'... should read after the p.s. Oh well, tough beans for not learning to be an admin. If you do not know how to generate site backups, then hire someone or learn it. I do not get it why so many are neglectful in learning this, as it is the most important thing you need to do daily/weekly.

            Learn curve for most site owners and if you decide to give full access, then that is a problem most learn in the end. It is easy to attach someone you can not see, as most do not sue another for this type of destruction.

                Oh! pardon me, but should you not be working on that spider list. I would see something else then a spider list. Why not go further with that and have the ability to banned certain spiders from entering certain areas. I know some spiders love to read deny area and just go a read that page. Using deny is a joke, but only works for good spiders. What was I talking about.. Oh I already mentioned at the top.

                Do not worry, as this is typing and you can not here what I mean when you read this. It is quite different when you type then actually here it spoken.

                Not meant to hurt you in any way. <-- see smilie face

                          Am I wrong, or "English" should be written with capital "E" ?
