For the websites which the ATA hosts there is a website hosting control panel...this lets you set up how much disk space a website has (among other settings like CGI access, how many email addresses they can have and things like that)
The one that gets me is the Disk quota management.
For years now (literally YEARS) if a site needed more disk space you could edit the Disk quota for just that site directly. Up until sometime this week.
Each website is set up with a "Package" which was basically the defaults for all settings.
I originally set up Freetarot and Freereading with 300 megs of disk space...thought it would be plenty...and for Freereading it was.
Freetarot on the other hand at it's peak needed 495 meg of disk space...I had gradualy upped it's space using the quota edit feature over the years.....last week that individually edited quota was 500 meg.
This week it dropped back to the default...300. Which meant that freetarot was using 495 out of 300.
Critical files dropped to 0 bytes the second the were modified because there wasn't any disk space. (How do I know they were critical? I wrote the software for one thing and for another thing the site quit working a needed)
I had backups of the most critical file but it of course did not have the most recent changes...(if it had it would have been 0 bytes as well)
So I reset the quota to what I want and then restore from backup and go on my merry way.
Only to find out that sometime today the quota reset to the default again and I lost two critical files AGAIN.
I have now changed the defaults for that package...way more than Freereading needs but best I can do.
