Backup restore? ( 10:32:56 ThuOct 30 2003 )

It is my understanding that the boards are backed-up weekly. Would it be possible for someone to restore our board from backup from the last weekly backup? I tried to do my own server-side backup but I keep getting an error message.

Board URL: frost.bbboy.net/rhythmsroundtable

I've also had the same problem...

When I try to download the backup that I save to disk, I get an error message.

I will see if we can use the weekly back up for restoring your board ADMINISTRATOR. :smile:

I will do some testing and see if I can restore a test board from a downloaded and reuploaded back up. :smile:

I didn't get any error Chinchilla. Can you tell us what the exact error message you got was? Also what operating system do you use? :smile:

When did you need the restore set back to ADMINISTRATOR? I would like to try doing a server side restore myself for you to see if I get the same error you got because testing just now on a frost server board I was able to use both forms of backup and restoring from them worked as it should. :smile:

Thanks for the help!

I think it is related to the shoutbox you have in the sidebar. I wasn't able to restore from an old backup either as it said it was a invalid backup file. I will have to see if BbBoy can restore it for you-but my guess is that the shoutbox is interfering with the board and even our weekly backup might have been corrupted for the same reason the current serverside ones are not working. :smile:

Okay, I'll try to delete it and see if it works then. I'll let you know.

THat didn't work. I'm a little concerned though, I tried restoring from 9/19 and that didn't work. I'm not saying that you're wrong about the shoutbox but I didn't add it until 9/27. That shouldn't have affected the 9/19 backup.

Is it possible for Bboy to restore it from last week?

The thing is that once it is removed any new backups will probably work, however older ones will still have that code for it in them and will still be corrupted. If there is anything I can do until I hear back from BbBoy about the state of our back end backups let me know. :smile:

Okay, I removed the code. I'll do a back-up and see if that works. Thanks for your time with this. I understand what you're saying but that still doesn't explain why I can't restore back-ups that pre-date the shoutbox.... You have to admit, that IS puzzling. lol

If you still need it restored I will see if BbBoy can access one of our backups for you. If we have a weekly one done before the 27th when the shout box was added you would want it restored to that date right? :smile:

Does this mean that nothing after the 27th will be able to be restored? I would like to try last week's first.
I understand what you are saying about the Shout Box but that still doesn't explain why I can't restore to the other server-side backups that were there before the shout box.
If it can't be restored to last week then I'll just have to keep things the way they are. A user took it upon themselves to not only delete most of his posts but to edit the posts of others. I've removed him from the board but I'd like to put our board {content} back to the way it was before his spree.

As I said before it will need to be looked at by BbBoy-I can't see what the state of the backups are on our end. I will know more when BbBoy has been on and had a moment to look into this for you. When was the mod on the rampage? (It had to have been a mod as only mods can edit other's posts)

I just wanted to let you know ADMINISTRATOR, that another admin has reported trouble with serverside backups and I would say there is a link between the trouble you've had and the trouble the other admin had. :smile:
