Excuse the Appearance – Missing Photos

Last week I upgraded the version of WordPress running this site. WordPress is the software application that this site is running. I did a backup of the system on the server, but took for granted everything was saved.

I then found some problems with the new version, so I deleted everything on the server and copied my backup from my local computer back to the server. At first I noticed the theme was missing and rebuilt that area.

Last night I noticed all the photos were missing. I looked and found the directory where the photos are kept was empty too.

I am going through each article and uploading the missing photos. So please bear with me. I hope to have them back today.

I have also learned to keep all photos used on the site in its own directory locally to be able to upload them all at one time if this happens again.

I am always learning about having a site and realize never relax, once you do the Internet Gods will bite you in the butt.

Once I am done, if there are any photos you see still missing, please let me know.

    I’m happy to know that I am not the only one with a bad backup when upgrading WP, Ha, ha….
    Let this be a lesson for every backup you make.

    Two very helpfull plugins are:
    WordPress Database Backup and System information

    with those two you can easily restore the backup in case something went wrong.

      Looks like all is fixed now. Let me know by email if you find any problems. I am sorry, when I restored all the photos lost, I could not find the ones from Basti’s Brew when we first met.
