    MDhosting really screwed the pooch. I imagine someone is getting canned.

    This error page is still redirected from domain: http://www.centextalk.com/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

    Just issue a redirect from: www.centextalk.com >> http://www.centextalk.com/vb/forum.php

    Step 1 - Don't turn on snapshots as the first stage of your "triple backup" strategy, contrary to your advertised features
    Step 2 - Blow up your file system
    Step 3 - Blow up your file system so friggin' bad you can't restore your onsite backup (2nd stage of the triple backup strategy)
    Step 4 - Make sure your off-site backups are on the oldest hardware possible and make it painfully slow to restore from off site.

    Haven't got a clue as to the specific kind of backups
    you are talking about, but that seems to be the standard
    operating procedure in the world today.

    (PS: Anyone here use K's Replicator?)
    I don't mind being called far right.
    I have been right so far.

    The easy fix is to just edit this page:
    http://www.centextalk.com/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi << HERE

    Put this script as the 1st line on the page:

    Then I would write an FTP script that takes the entire /vb directory and sub-directories (files / sql database) and copies it
    to another server outside of MDhosting on an automated schedule around 3:00 AM.

    If MDHosting takes a SH-- on you you again you can simply goto godaddy and redirect
    to that platform and all the DNS will update in a few minutes.

    Your backups will be good through 3AM that day and you dont rely on a webhost to do it.

    All my business clients are hosted on multiple platforms in different clouds where I control DNS and routing.

    Well, I am now not nearly as frustrated as before... I had no idea what a great place to vent CTT was... It was like my fingers were tongue tied for 2 days.

    PS... Solitaire is no acceptable backup.
    We have met the enemy and he is us... POGO
