This blog down earlier

I don’t know why this was down earlier. When I woke up at 7am PST, it was down. I first emailed my host, then tried restoring a previous database backup, but that didn’t work. I also tried overwriting the files on the server (in case they got changed somehow), but that wasn’t it either. I have a cron job setup to check my blogroll link to see if any has been updated, and I deleted that in case that was the problem. All seems to be fine again, but I don’t know if my host had anything to do with it. It’s all weird because I’m webhosting two friends for their classes (they’re both elementary school teachers), and those were fine. The forums were fine, too, so that ruled out a MySQL error. So…I don’t know. I’m going to school, and I hope things stay fine – at least until I get back in about 5 hours. (Not before I do a backup!) 😉
