I don't know what happened this morning.
I did my usual check to see if this site was running and it wasn't.
All I got was a blank white screen. Fuck!
I tried to nip into the engine room, but that wasn't there either. Fuck-fuck!
Now I hadn't done anything to the site, and I don't allow it to do anything to itself because it might break itself. So neither of us had done anything yet my poor site and all the hard work had vanished in a puff of white page.
I tried everything. I tried setting the site back to yesterday when I knew it worked. That was no good. I tried removing stuff box by box. That didn't work. In the end I deleted the whole damned site and reverted it to the latest version that I knew worked [i.e. yesterday]. That didn't work.
I was getting a little pissed off at this stage and realised there was just one tiny file I hadn't mucked with and that was the little file that tells the site where everything is and where its information is stored. Naturally the site won't work without it. I deleted everything in that file except for the barest essentials. The site worked!
I started replacing bits into that file until eventually the site went up in white smoke again. At last I had found the culprit. It was one teensy little line of code I had added about six weeks ago and hadn't changed it since. But now for some fucking reason it was screwing the brains out of the whole shebang.
If you can read this, then the site is reasonably back to normal, if you can call this site normal. If you can't see it and are only getting a blank page then something must still be wrong.
I know my favourite trolls, Supershadow and the CIA are all going to claim credit for smashing my site but I know for a fact it wasn't any of them.
Personally I blame Brexit.
