Techjoomla.com back up after database issues
Techjoomla- behind the scenes
Techjoomla was down for almost 36 hours after a database issue caused due to server problems wiping out all our data to the day we were launched ! This happened just when we were in the process of replacing a dead Hard disc on our backup machine, which meant we had no usuable backup whatsoever. 

What followed for the next 24 hours is the most incredible restoration operation we have ever conducted with scrapping data from Google's Cache & order notification emails & what not.. If the more geeky of you are interested in how we managed to be back up in such a short time we will be putting a blog post about this soon at techjoomla.com
