Well, Godaddy got a hold of me. They want $150 to send me a backup sql file to fix my site. Which is a ripoff. They charge $150 to do a full site restore, recover lost files, fix problems, fix database, etc. I don’t need them to do anything like that, I just needed a copy of an old sql file, which they have. But they said it’s still going to be $150. So I said forget it. Luckily for quite some time now, WordPress has had an autosave feature. So most of my posts had multiple revisions. I was able to go into each post individually and roll it back one revision. That worked until about mid 2008 where post revisions were no longer available. So I lost my first 100 posts. I may try to rebuild them one by one over the next few months. I have the posts, they are just missing the letters r a t i n g s, which makes it a bit hard. Somehow all my posts with music in them were spared, so I have all the Mix of the Moment posts, just nothing else.
The Site is as Fixed as it’s Going to Get, For Now
