At about 1am this morning, somehow our security was breached and our database was deleted :Eeek: We have someone looking at the security logs right now. I have managed to install a working backup, other backups will be installed today so posts made today may or may not be lost. If you have joined Motorhomefun in the last few days we will not have your details so you will have to "join" again.

Sorry about this, and any knock on issues, we are doing our best to resolve the issues and there may well be some times today that you cannot gain access.


And to think I do this for fun:shout::shout::shout::roflmto:::bigsmile:
regards

Jim

Hi Jim

Sorry to hear of that. I checked my emails this morning and there was one from fun saying that I was being missed et etc and that I had not logged on for ages - thought whats all that about?

Presumably its an automatic thing the software does in this sort of event and is very impressive. I had to reset my passwords etc to access the site

And listen - a simple MOT failure is not worth switching the site off for :Smile:

Shame about these so and so's who have nothing better to do than to vandalise good things, and Motorhomefun is a good thing! We all see it in so many aspects of life today, whether its graffiti, making town centres no-go areas, or whatever.:cry:

Don't let the b*****ds get you down, Jim, we all appreciate all that you do!:thumb::thumb::thumb:

Well it looks OK, but we have some incremental back ups to install that are giving us problems. Presently it looks like we have 17 days of posts missing:Eeek: Hopefully we will be able to sort this out. I will have Bryans help soon he is much better at this stuff than i am:thumb:

Many thanks for all your very hard work Jim - really love this site its sooooooooooooooo much better than any other motorhome forum

I came here quite annoyed and about to complain about the 'spam' I'd received telling me I hadn't been joining in, but now I see the reason I quite understand. I'm not a violent person, but some of the lowlife on the internet who do this sort of thing make my blood boil.

Hope the site is fully recovered soon.

Well done Jim and Bryan for getting everything back so quickly. I too had an e mail but it made me smile I have cut and pasted a piece from it See highligh in pink this is the bit that made me smile and immediately log in.

Our membership is still growing fast, the forums, reviews, classified and the Photo Gallery are as busy as ever and we have a calender full of get-togethers. Why pop back in and see us?

Keep up the good work:thumb:

I also got the "missing you" e-mail.
Like a clot I sent an e-mail apologising for my lack of postings and promised to take a more active part in the proceedings.
I never contribute a lot but I do find all the posts very interesting and gain quite a bit of knowledge from reading them. I have only toured in England once so far and that was the Lake District, but once I've saved up enough to buy the right amount of diesel I'll try and join you guys and gals for a "meet".
Cheersthenoo!

Hi Jim

Not sure if this is connected, but when I logged on today, the main page said I last visited sometime in May, which is not correct, as I was on line yesterday???

Hi Russell. Yes there are loads of little quirks we are still ironing out, we are getting there though:thumb: The worst thing is that some members that have joined in the last week or so have to join again. We have already had some Deja vu introductions::bigsmile:

Explains why I had the email

I also had an email saying from the site saying not used for a while but it came after I had used the site - funny I thought, must be a problem with one of their scripts not checking dates correctly or something. Reading this thread I now realise it was the 'or something' rather than your code. http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/images/smilies/rofl1.gif
:ROFLMAO:

I wish you well on the incremental restore, always a pain, especially if you do incremental incremental backups.

Good luck in locking down the system and preventing others from causing more grief.
