Website Problems. Oh dear!

On Sunday during a routine maintenance the SewHappy.Me website crashed!

Website Crash

In the process of trying to restore it, it became clear that some of the data had been lost, in particular my recent posts and tutorials. Since then my data hosting company have been working hard to restore my backups, but have encountered a technical problem. It has proved very tricky and has taken longer than expected but they are still working on it to try and resolve the problem ASAP. They are optimistic that it can be restored. Phew!

This has never happened before and I have been very anxious as I have contemplated all the extra work it would involve to try and re-write all my lost files. In particular I was very conscious that we were in the middle of a fantastic Fabric Giveaway hosted by Secret Garden Quilting. But please bear with me and as soon as the website is back up and running again smoothly I will be updating the website with the Fabric Giveaway news.

My apologies if you have been concerned. Until now I have even been unable to get back into the admin pages to let you know. Fingers crossed.

Fingers crossed

Hopefully all will be back to normal very, very soon.

    Good luck Lesley – I know you can do it!!

  2. Oh I can just imagine how stressful this must be. I know how much work goes into writing tutorials and blog posts in general so I will send good thoughts that your web host is able to full restore everything. And sending warm calming thoughts to you as well.

  3. Mirror site on free blog host, such as LiveJournal, just in case? Hope all is well soon!

  4. Good luck Lesley. I can appreciate how frustrating this is. ^^
