Pls Accept My Apologies

I am so sorryI upgraded from shared hosting to VPS on the 18th of July due to some restrictions with my autoresponder script (it is limited to sending 250 emails per hour). After upgrading I discovered the shared hosting I was using before was even better than the VPS I upgraded to.

I am using an In-house (self-hosted) autoresponder script which is very robust (it has all what aweber has and even more) but shared hosting restricts email sending to 250 per hour while VPS does not, I decided to upgrade to VPS only to discover that VPS does not have all the facilities I needed and my server does not have enough memory to install cPanel, I also later realized that my host don’t provide technical assistance for VPS servers (they tried their best to help me though;)).

After using the VPS for 12 days (I upgraded on the 18th) I decided to downgrade to shared hosting again since VPS is not serving my purpose only to discover that all my data were reverted to the day I upgraded to VPS. It was so unfortunate, I loss over 400 comments, lots of mailing list subscribers, all my posts and changes and just everything. It is not that painful cos my site is fully functional and all I loss could be gained easily (the subscribers, my posts e.t.c.). What pains me most is the loss of your precious comments that can NEVER be regained and I want to tender my apology, I know how it feels but pls bear with me.

You don’t need to comment again, but I am not happy to lose your precious comments ;);)

All is back again and If you subscribed to my mailing list within that period then you might want to subscribe again by filling the form on the sidebar.

Great Things Are Coming Ahead!

    Hi Onibalusi,

    A very sad, tragic and painful story. But what is done, cannot be undone and we should be looking forward now.

    Kindest,
    Nabeel

    PS: Your RSS feed is showing 8 new posts. Thought I should mention this too.

    • Onibalusi Bamidele says:

      Exactly Nabeel,

      That is the funny aspect of it, we just have to keep moving forward.

      The RSS feed showing 8 posts was also as a result of the glitch.

      Thanks so much for your concern, I really appreciate it,

    I tend to back up everything daily, including the files and database, at around 11:30pm I’ll do it, always safe and sound that way.

    • Onibalusi Bamidele says:

      Yeah,

      I do backup before but when the backup is reducing my gmail memory, i decided to stop.

      I will have to create a separate gmail account for this then.

      Thanks so much for your concern, I really appreciate it,

  5. Tinh says:

    How was it now? Are you still with shared hosting or VPS?

    • Onibalusi Bamidele says:

      Hi Tinh,

      All is now okay.

      I am now back to shared hosting.

      Thanks so much for your concern, I really appreciate it,

      • Tinh says:

        I think the popup domination plugin has utilised too much memory?

        • Onibalusi Bamidele says:

          Hi Tinh,

          Actually, there was no problem with popup domination, the only problem was that my autoresponder script is not working and since that was why I upgraded I decided to chnage back to shared hosting.

          Thanks so much for your concern, I really appreciate it,

  7. Mani Viswanathan says:

    Which shared hosting are u currently using..?

    Also you did’nt have the backup of comments ? If not, its always better to even have that and the entire directory backups (Every week or so)

    • Onibalusi Bamidele says:

      Hi Mani,

      Yeah! I use securesignup.

      Concerning the backup, I will now go and set it to every week cos that will save a bit of memory.

      Thanks so much for your concern, I really appreciate it,
