Plugins Deleted

when i closed the dashboard/browser yesterday all my plugins where still there, and when i got back to the dashboard today they all have been gone. i made extensive changes to some of them and even coded some custom ones, and it seems theyre all gone now (they dont show up on the site anymore either and the plugin folder is gone on the ftp...) does anyone know what happened? if they really got deleted or if they are moved somewhere else? i am the only one with access to the plugin section. so it wassnt someone else.

    Don't know what happened, but it sounds like something you may have done.

    i don't know what kind of ftp client you use, but it sometimes happens with mine that i accidentally move a whole folder into another folder.

    This is a public service announcement kids:

    Always back up your Vanilla folder. If you don't have enough space then leave /uploads out. If you still don't have enough space then buy an iPod shuffle or a wrist watch with a usb port and back up there.

    And don't kick old topics just for the purpose of saying : 'me too', first search (there are at least 2 more recent topics about this issue!)

  • ohh wow....i was basically voicing my concerns that this is a serious situation that users are facing with all there plugins get deleted.

    why cant we all forget about how we write or express our feelings on double posting of frekin topics and

    "Pay attention to the plugin getting deleted."
    No to be rude but this is serious...imagine you send 11 hours and all your work disappears.

    Will i be posting hearts here...

    anyway..please dont reply after me...ignore this whole topic..please

    Your concern is valid.

    There is two sides to this:

    1. The ill-advised feature.
    2. The responsibility of any webmaster, to learn a bit about managing a server. Especially file permission and server rules for that server, security and backup OR hire dedicated management.

    Both side apply. This bad feature highlights poor practices. Whilst this feature should not exploit or encourage poor practices, the fact that the webmaster has already exposed their files in this way as for this even to be possible, means that there isn't enough education.

    grep is your friend.
