  • Amazing what a 1KB file can do if it disappears. The index.php file on my expat forum went walkabout and it took me four hours to realise why the site had literally disappeared.
    Am I glad I had a backup?

    Two things, you figured it out AND you had made backups to fall back on. Well done! Next question of course, did you get hacked or was this a software glitch/bug/failure of some sort?

    I'm pretty sure it was a software glitch. On Monday I carried out a major forum software upgrade which went through fine. The following day I was clearing out some sub-domains and WordPress installation clones that I no longer use because they were experimental and taking up space and resources on the Godaddy server. Pretty sure that's when the file went missing.

    I use their deluxe shared hosting plan with unlimited domains, fyi.
    Who would have thought?
