I'm super sad to announce that in cause of bad server configuration, entire production database of prismo.news has been accidentally wiped out. Without option to restore it.

You can't imagine how angry i am right now but i assure you i'm gonna write an extended post about that incident with description of everything that happened and lessons learned.

I'm super sorry for your loss, i hope fediverse will forgive me one day.

@prismo it sucks but we will recover and restart 😉

It is the price we pay for doing things ourselves, and not by professional DevOps.
