Before backing up your site first take the precaution of backing up your site

AoB Blog was offline this afternoon. The reason was that I tried to install a new back up plugin, in case anything went horrifically wrong with the site. Unfortunately, despite testing, the module was not happy and something went horrifically wrong with the site.

The site has been fixed by deleting WordPress and then re-installing it. I don’t think we’ve lost any comments or scheduled posts, so at least the current back up procedures work.

Please feel free to report any bugs you see, as they’re almost certainly long term bugs that I’ve missed.
