The Monkey's House was down for 3 weeks.

Hosting

Our former service provider deleted all our files and data in that hosting without any notification before, because of, they said, our 'violation' to the T.O.S. ,which has not been found by our staffs by now.

The WWW service via HTTP was failed in June 16, and our site monitor alarmed this severe problem.

The Monkey was around the final exam so that he did not have time to handle that very soon.

Fortunately, there is a fresh backup.

Domain

Meanwhile, the original domain 'shk3.pp.ru' was being expired, due to the new regulation.

In July 6, the domain was not delegated while the user were transferred to a Russian page of the NIC.

There was still a big problem that the Monkey 's profile in the RU-Center, the new NIC of Russian domains, was incorrect. The Monkey tried to write a letter with his passport to change the profile into correct one.

The RU-Center and the Old Monkey eventually helped the Monkey in the domain renewal, thus the domain 'shk3.pp.ru' was re-delegated yesterday.

The Monkey and his old friend PrinceWZZ now host a server together, which is called 'Princeton Monkey' by the Monkey. This server enables the Monkey more powers and provides him a bigger stage to perform his web ability.

Database

Blips came again. The backup of database was made by 'mysqldump', which had a bug making double encoding to the data, according to Bug #28969.

So the restored database was filled with messy data. Still luckily, the Monkey found the solution by restoring-mysqldumping-restoring.

The Monkey also found a very cool technology website StakOverFlow, in which people encouraged the Monkey:

I'm sure you've also learned a best practice here. Always check your backups against a "burn system" so you know they are good before you need them for disaster recovery. Don't feel bad we've all been there. 😀 – Erik Nedwidek

Thanks to RU-Center, Old Monkey, stackoverflow and PrinceWZZ as well as all our readers.

猴子的小窝宕机3个星期了。

我们上一个空间提供商在没有通知我们的情况下,删除了我们所有的文件和数据。因此我们的万维网HTTP服务在6月16日中断。

猴哥由于临近期末考试,无法很快的解决这个问题。幸运的是我们有一个近期的备份。

事情总是两面的,域名shk3.pp.ru因为新的域名规定,马上就要到期了。7月6日,域名被中止并转向到一个俄国域名信息中心的俄文页面。

在域名管理机关RU-Center,猴哥的个人信息还有一个严重的问题,他为此把护照的复印件发送给了管理机关以重新获得域名的管理权。

猴哥的老朋友PrinceWZZ现在与猴哥合租一个猴哥称作Princeton Monkey的服务器,这个服务器使猴哥有更大的余地展示。

问题又来了,数据库的备份由于生成软件的漏洞(Bug #28969)而把数据重复编码,导致恢复后的数据库充斥着混乱的数据。有一次幸运的是,猴哥找到了一个通过恢复-备份-恢复的解决方案。

猴哥还找到了一个非常棒的技术网站“堆栈溢出”(mysqldump),那里的网友鼓励猴哥:

我确信你在这里学到了最重要的东西——经常在一个“滚烫的系统”上更新备份,因此你在需要灾难恢复前知道他们的重要性。不要感到悲伤,我们都在这儿呢! 😀 – Erik Nedwidek
