My Unmaintained Free Software wiki is down since yesterday. I don't know what happened, but I cannot ssh into the VServer where I host the site anymore. The server also hosts Holsham Traders, which is down, too (the SourceForge project page still works, fortunately).
Of course I stupidly neglected regular backups long enough, so that this could turn out to be a major problem...
I asked the hoster of the VServer what the problem is and what I can do to get my sites running again. The answer: "Reinstall the server". Upon reading that, I didn't know whether to laugh, cry, or simply terminate my contract with them immediately.
I mean - come on - that's a fucking Debian box running there, not some not so stable operating system, which needs regular reinstalls.
I basically told them so in another email and asked them to at least send me tarballs of /var/www and other relevant directories plus a dump of the MySQL database. No answer so far.
I'm really curious how this will all end — if one of their disks crashed or their servers burnt down or something, I'm screwed.
