So, if you don’t remember, I botched my migration previously, because I lost my backup.
Or so I thought!
I booted up a computer that I hadn’t used in months and I found an old backup file from my site during the period that it was hosted on DigitalOcean. I’m quite certain that it includes all the old posts that I had created, or at the very least, almost all of them.
I find it hard to express in a text-only medium just how pleased I am that I found this file and that I have retrieved all those old posts (and all of those drafts!). I feel like I am some sort of movie archeologist that just completed a long adventure. Part of the reason why I feel good about myself is that it turns out that I can remember to do backups, and that I backed up my site to multiple computers.
I currently don’t have a backup service active on any of my computers, but now that I’ve successfully restored my site because of using multiple computers I know I can be successful in that endeavor as well.
The moral of the story of course is to back up your files! When I get around to it, there might be another blog post about.
I hope you have a great day, because I am!
