I have been working on a fairly large site which was almost finished with about 50 Static Pages. All was good yesterday morning, I went back yesterday afternoon to continue work and found the staticpage table corrupt. Since I was working on the site at the time I had not backed up the database. All those wonderful static pages were gone. One small glitch and 50 pages wiped out in an instant.

So folks I think the lesson here is to backup your database often. Might even be nice to automate it.

One good thing to come out of this is even though I still require all those pages I am now generating them dynamically. Once I get these back on line I will look at a new way of doing these pages.

Oooo, I just figured out that 1.3.9srX backups return a file with 0 bites... Guess I need to upgrade asap.
