    Kovich is out of the industry.

    My hosting company was responsible for managing my server and keeping everything in-tact and running smoothly. They promised that backups were made and everything was safe and secure. At some point, they decided to try and upgrade something, which broke Plesk - which then resulted in all of my data being corrupted. When they tried to reinstall with the backed up data, they ended up erasing everything. They have no answers for me, no solutions, nothing. My sites have been down for over 48 hours now.

    This means that everything that I have spent years working on is now gone.

    At this point, I'm too shocked to even begin to think about doing anything. Consider this my resignation from the online business industry. I don't think I can muster the strength to try again, or even restore my sites from very old backups that I made myself, because I just don't see the point now. It just wasn't meant to be, I suppose.

    I've posted the same thing, but something else happened. It sucks ass what happened mate, which hosting company was it? They should have a backup, which is older and which shouldn't be erased AFAIK.

    Mate, stay in the business -- I did the same, and I'm happy I did It's hard to restart, but if that's the only option... start new, start clean

    He won't stand a chance, hosting companies have all those little contract lines where they clearly state they can't be help responsible for data losses or corruptions.

    Check the Google cache for content/articles and save out a text files.

    Tough luck dude, I lost one of my sites today as well, luckily I backed it up a few days ago so I only lost a few days posts that I'm now having to rewrite.

    I echo what everyone else is saying, start again, do it better, I'm sure you'll make more money, after all you've still got the traffic, the domains, and if your stats tell you which pages people are going to I'm sure you can still monetize. Keep at it.

    I don't suppose anyone knows of a way to download a full backup from Virtuozzo? I have one - and it has everything on it. That's the only backup that exists. However, when I try and restore the container using the backup: nothing. I don't know of any way to pull that onto my local machine. Anybody know?
