Crashes and Late Newsletter
Last week, we had a web consultant company tie up a few loose ends. One of the consultants accidentally clicked a button that sent the website reeling.
A very quick explanation – the website is set up as
- cutcompcosts.com/year/month/article name
The consultant changed all 2,000 web pages and 1,800 articles to
- cutcompcosts.com/article name
All the internal and external links were set up on the first example. If you accessed the website it was slow or gave you the dreaded 404 error or the even more dreaded 500 Server Outage (Ouch!)
We rebuilt all the databases. As you may know, it takes time for everything to straighten back out to normal.
We try to send the newsletter out on Thursdays at 1 PM. We are holding it until tomorrow morning Friday, December 11th to make sure we did not miss any leftover bugs, gremlins, or grinches.
One button clicked and BOOM! Yes, we had backups, but by the time we figured out the problems, we could not turn back the dial a week.
Thanks for your understanding. Whew! What a week!
