If you read my post earlier about the WP Optimize plug in and what it did to my blog last night, then you must know that I wasn’t a happy camper! But that didn’t last long very long, thanks to the HostGator Technical Support Team.
They were able to fix my problem which actually seemed to be the same as last time, my SQL table crashed. All my pictures have been restored and everything is now good!
While I highly recommend that you go with HostGator for your hosting company, I DO NOT recommend the WP Optimize plug in whatsoever. If my site runs slow, so be it. I will never try to optimize again! And most importantly, I will make sure to have a backup of my blog every couple days!
Thank you for for being patient while they worked on my site and we are now again up and running!
If you have visited my site today, you might be wondering how come none of my pictures are showing up! And why my menu bar isn’t working? That would be because I tried to optimize my site with the help of the WP Optimize plug in. All I wanted to do was save some space and make my page load faster. Instead, I broke it! Of course, I don’t have a recent backup! Stupid on my part!
All my images are gone, all my featured images are gone, all the pictures in my posts are just showing up as image numbers, all my SEO work is gone and my links in my menu bar don’t work! You know how they say your server backs up your site once a week? Apparently, not if your site is too large, in which in my case, it is. It hasn’t been backed up since October!
Recently, I had the opportunity to spend a couple days at Emerald Grande at HarborWalk Village in Destin, Fl. I live in Central Florida but I would love to live on the Gulf Coast. But unfortunately, visiting it is about as close as I will get to it. We love to travel and Destin, Fl was on the list of my Summer Travel Plans this year. I traveled to Destin with 23 other bloggers as part of Brandcation, and part of the trip was paid for by sponsors, but some of it was not.
I don’t know about you, but when we travel, once we arrive at our destination, we don’t want to have to drive to go other places. At Emerald Grande at HarborWalk Village, once you arrive, you can park the car and forget about it until it’s time to leave. I arrived on Thursday and didn’t get back in my car until Sunday when it was time for me to leave.
