Killed one of my databases today. Tried to migrate it to my home computer. Crashed the sucker. Boom, site gone, over 100,000 entries.
I had backups from over a week ago. But just to check, I went to the Dreamhost MySql control panel and found a choice of database backups I could restore. One was from 14 hours ago. Good enough. 5 minutes later and my site is back.
And you can get up to $80 off of any hosting plan by entering HALFOFFNOWPLEASE in the promo code field. That means you can get a year of hosting, unlimited domains for less than $60 at Dreamhost.
