|Our server's harddrive had developed lots of damaged blocks, this caused the server to crash and corrupt lots of data, luckily most of these corrupted files were system files and not website or database files, the site had only lost some avatar images.|
It took our server provider Server4you.com 34 hours to replace the broken harddrive, we could have been online with in 4 to 5 hours had support been quicker to respond, I am now looking for some sort of compensation from them for the downtime.
A big thank you to Sibbi for his help in backing up and restoring the files and services.
(Not all sub sites, email accounts etc are up yet. And there's some server tweaking that needs to be done. So bear with us while we get things sorted)
