As many of you will know, Weevily World, once again fell victim to its popularity and we were hacked again yesterday. I’m not going give the hacker any further publicity, but I suppose it is nice to know, that Weevily World is so good, that some lame-brained, Billy-no-mates, thinks hacking Weevily World will make him famous and popular. (It’s not working btw.)
Fortunately, I know that a successful blog, will always attract losers, like yesterday’s culprit and I regularly download the Weevily World XML, to make sure I am always prepared, for exactly this scenario!
The only problem is, that Weevily World has become so huge, that the XML can no longer be downloaded in one file! I’ve had to create separate, time-stamped files, for both posts and pages and I’ve got these files, spread over three separate computers! (one of which I don’t have with me at the moment.)
I’ve done the best, with what I have and restored the pages and, as we were only a very few posts missing, I’ve left it at that – as uploading the posts file most likely cause a lot of duplicate posts to appear!
Hopefully Weevily World content, now makes sense again. It took a while to put things back in order and there are bound to be mistakes. If you find any please let us know!
Finally, I’d like to remind everyone that any restore process is subject to failure. So if you have created something you are proud of, it is a very good idea,to keep a back-up copy, somewhere other than your main blog.
