My server died and has been resurrected

I got a nice phone call yesterday morning. “Hello sir, your server is experiencing hardware failure…you need to backup everything ASAP!” Mid backup they proceeded to create a new server for me and copy over my previous data into a backup folder.

BCMuslims.com…DOWN

Nikahfied.org…DOWN

AberrantDevelopment.com…DOWN

IslamicSpeakers.ca…DOWN

SOTNE.com…DOWN

Email…DOWN

DNS…DOWN

and I’m left there to re-install the server applications myself…UGH!!!!

Alhumdulilah, after a day and a half, everything is back up and running. Just when I think there couldn’t possibly be more added to my load…Allah lets me know otherwise. Now if I started charging everyone for all the work I do on this stuff I could hire someone to handle this painful work but that would defeat the purpose.

It got me thinking about how reliant I am on the internet…I’m not a system admin guy I can muddle my way through but google and I need to be on good terms. How did anyone do this type of stuff before?!?!?!
