UUBahai.com Restored After Unexplained Shutdown
For three days last week, this blog was inaccessible and the address UUBahai.com was redirected by our web hosting company to a different website owned by one of our editors. A significant amount of data was lost by the hosting company, and yesterday we manually restored it to the blog’s database. Permalinks and the RSS feed were unavailable all week.
We were told by our hosting company that the shutdown and data loss were due to problems on the hard drive of the server that hosts UUBahai.com. However, no explanation was given for what actually caused these things to occur or why the company failed to back up the data as is normally done. We suspect it may have been a case of hacking, because some people with staunch religious beliefs would have a motive to see this blog disappear from the internet — but we don’t know and probably never will know whether or not that is what happened.
Please excuse the temporary unavailability of the Unitarian Universalist Bahai Blog and any confusion that resulted. All content has now been restored. However, if you registered as a user of the blog you will need to re-register, because all registration information was permanently lost. We apologize for the inconvenience.
