Sometimes I am not the brightest bulb on the tree.
WordPress has a new update that I was considering installing. Before I did so, I backed up the entries on my blog. Cause I’m smart like that.
I thought it would also be a good idea to back up the database for the blog as well. Unfortunately, I selected something I shouldn’t have selected, clicked on whatever it was that would have made the back up happen and…
I wiped out my database.
Luckily it didn’t take much to reinstall WordPress 2.6 and import my previous blog entries. I may have fallen from the Stupid Tree, but I was close enough to the ground that I didn’t hit too many branches on the way down.
Now the only thing I really have to do rebuild my sidebars, which is a pain in the ass, but not as much of one as losing all the entries I’ve written since I started the new URL would have been. A plus? I get my categories back after an ill-fated attempt to do something fancy a few months back, which turned them all into tags, which I found I liked a lot less than the categories.
I guess I’m not the dimmest bulb on the tree either. *phew*
