Hi guys, its strange i have been using virtualmin for over 8 years now but never experienced this type of crash. My host is timevps.com , the server refused to restart and they informed me the only way is to reinstall the OS (ubuntu) which i did, and then i installed virtualmin ( by the way it gets better and better each time, the install process that is )
So, i have a folder with all my previous files, like all of them called backup, i have no idea where to start, i have no backups of my virtual servers at all, nothing!!! just the original files as they ran on my prior server…
What i can also say is
- the OS , mysql and php are the same as the previous server, also
- the ip address is exactly the same.
This is my first full year running a vps all by myself away from shared hosting ( mom is proud ) so im not really a linux or ubuntu guy. i dont know were to touch. please advise. i have about 8 client websites on the system right now and no backups ( yes i know, dont say it ). i have now added an extra dollar to the hosting cost for freq backups.
