This morning I noticed that some comments from my blog had disappeared. Checking the DB table, they’re gone for good (my host currently has no automated DB backup facility for my kind of account). I only have a precious few to start with, so I made the effort to dig them up (thank you Google for your ‘cache:’ operator) and re-create them. I wish I knew what happened, I suspect akismet since I think it happened after a round of spam moderation. Anyway, that’s one more reason to look into an alternative hosting solution. DB backup through phpMyAdmin is no fun.
(Edit : turns out that my host does make automated, daily DB backups, lucky for me I came across them when looking for my website logs – so I was finally able to properly restore de comments table)
