Blimey, yesterday was busy on raceroms. Equiliym, you've taken the top spot in the most popular ROM list by quite a large lead.

It looks like most of the 2471 unique visits came from China but the site is getting linked to from all over the world. I'm just glad the new server stood up to the number of requests it was getting, 10563 hits yesterday alone!

Morning All,

Apologies for the delay in posting this.

I'd like to say that the downtime on raceroms was in tribute to Racerboys' Racer kicking the bucket, but I'd be lying.

My server was hacked on Friday morning. I don't think it was anything to do with any website in particular, just someone seeing an opportunity and taking it. I noticed it first when all my website files were made read-only, then the OS was corrupted.

I take nightly backups to a different location so thought I'd just wipe the server, start again and reload from the backups.

I wiped the server and then found that my backups were corrupted (first mistake, note to self: check backups before wiping server). On top of that, there seemed to be a never ending stream of things which meant that the server never really got back to where it was. For example, I ran an OS update which updated my grub version only to find that there is a little documented bug which meant that my specific grub version clashed with the specific grub version being run by my hosting company, meaning that the server wouldn't start after a re-boot. a few hours later, the server gets wiped again and we start again. This plus caring for the baby and working has made the last few days a bit of a headache

The good news is that I have an old backup of the site (old = about 2 months). I have also been able to repair most of the corrupted backup file so the ROMs are safe. FTP access should be working now but the site itself will be offline until the evening when I get a chance to check the server config one last time before loading the main backup and making the site live. If you find a ROM which should be there but isn't after I say the site is live, Apologies. I am now taking a lot more precautions re backups so should the same thing happen again, the recovery should be much speedier.

I took my time in posting this as I wanted to have at least an estimated time of when the site would be active again.

The website isn't down it doesn't exist any more I believe the site owner decided to quit.

A warning would had been nice so I could archive some of the useful ROMs.

 

I don't suppose anyone has already bagged the whole lot on their hard drive??
