Challenges and Sorry State for www.Marikenya.com

This site has experienced a lot of downtime these days. My depression regarding the site’s sorry state was totally down. It was difficult for me to address easily the site’s problem for two reasons: first, I don’t have a back-up of my site; and second, it happened during the time I was extremely loaded with work.

The first downtime happened because I was tricked, scammed, and desolated by a fake web hosting service named eznet-hosting.com (you may check the site’s former content by google and yahoo cache page for this site). I would be divulging more information about this scammer in my next posts. Although I was too shocked about the catastrophe that befell my blog, I was able to act after a day of wishful thinking (it was just a nightmare). My friend hosted the site, put on the backup he kept before I transferred (almost four months outdated), and I put on the finishing touches (redesigning it and putting everything back) plus writing new posts. Before I left Manila, I was happier and forward looking that I have done much for the site.

That’s what I thought. When I checked the site after coming back Sunday evening, I immediately panicked when the site won’t show up and would return errors. The worpdress prompted me to upgrade or update the wp version. I asked my host to do this for me and when he signaled me it’s done, I excitedly went to my site and was more shocked that it reverted to its old state (March, 2009) – my plugins are gone, my widgets, my articles, and everything else — except the header design, were all gone. This second event was too much for me so I ended up crying hard.
