Apologies for the Blog Fart

I lost the blog to a corrupted table in the MySQL database that drives this blog yesterday around noon. I swear I didn’t do my usual shoot-self-in-foot move that has hosed this in the past. It was one of those random blog farts that required the good host at Cape.com to sweep in and run the REPAIR TABLE command. The sysadmin just called with the good news that all was restored.

  1. If you or your host are not doing reglar backups, you can accomplish this by typing the following on the commandline:

    mysqldump -p –all-databases > all.sql

    You will be prompted for your mysql password.
