Not So Good News for MyQuilt Blog

I finally got a response from the webhosting company this afternoon. They said that the attack on the server that hosts had rendered the backup files unusable. The only way to restore the website was to reinstall the software that runs I knew that I had saved a backup of MQB back in April, so I thought I could at least restore it to that point. After reinstalling the software, the database was blogs, users, etc. I tried restoring the April backup several times and each time got an error.

The next step is to contact the software developers to see if they can offer any help in restoring April backup. I'll let you know what happens when I find out what can be done about the backup.

So, the Good News is that exists again, but the bad news is that it is the blogs are not back in place yet. Keep your fingers crossed that I can get the April backup to work!

No News on

To all the members, I'm posting just a quick note to let you know that our site still has not been restored after Thursday's "attack". (Our site was not targeted affected hundreds of websites on several servers and our webhosting company has assured me that they are working diligently to restore each site one by one to the condition it was in before the "attack".

Hold tight and be patient. (I'm saying that more to myself than anyone else because I am definitely not known for my patience with computer issues, lol!)

I'll keep you updated here on this blog, so check back in. :)

Server Move to

Good Morning!

You may have noticed that when you type in, you are sent to This is my backup site for Block Central in case anything goes wrong on the other server. Thank goodness that I took this extra step to ensure that would always be available, because something went wrong with the other server!

It happened on Thursday, June 4, 2009 and by Saturday, June 7th, the problem still had not been resolved. I changed a few settings so that would resolve to and all of the content is now available for you to enjoy.

If you have any questions, let me know.

Thank you for your patience and understanding over the last few days.
