The justhost people had put the backup in your root directory. After five or six attempts to import to justhost's mysql server, I gave up and just uploaded to my own, and changed the beehive configuration file

ahh... that explains why the site is working, but the justhost db is still hosed.

I just got an email from justhost support saying that the db dump was too big for a shared server. how big is it?

Roughly 320 megabytes. Did they do something to the original database then? I've never seen a database just completely disappear before.

yeah, it appears that when they "suspended" the original database, they dropped the whole thing.

It brings a new meaning to using "suspenders".

JustHost - JustDropIt

Whoosh!

Nike can bite it.

What a bunch of cocksuckers. They should have suspended it, and then let your download an up to date dump before deleting it.

Yeah, I guess I'm going to have to start looking at alternatives. It's too bad, i guess, that I already paid up for 3 years of hosting. :-(

I'm not sure how we can have a server load of 38+ with only this simple forum on my share.

Well, it does say "Anytime Money Back Guarantee" on the front of their site. You might still be able to get it back.

I'm still trying to work with the support guy to figure out what's going on. If you can contine to host the db for a bit, I'd appreciate it.

OKay, justhost is about to move my account to a different server where they should be able to restore the db. So, service may be interrupted again, but briefly (hopefully).
