This all started on July 31st 2020 when our former webhost (azcappy.com) went dark along with all our content, we’ve restored some content, but the backups were older than they should have been (I was lax on running manual backups), the most recent backup from January 2020 had the wrong database file saved, so we had to restore the database back to October 2019.
I will be working on recreating the lost pages by hand, though if azcappy ever comes back online I should be able to log in there and grab all of the most current content.
We’re self-hosting this site from a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 4GB, on our 20mbps (upstream) VDSL2 connection, so we are somewhat bandwidth limited now. Our previous webhost had pretty strict CPU and memory (128mb) constraints on our plan, so this Pi is quite a bit faster and much less memory choked. Due to previous hosts resource constraints we had resorted to using a page caching plugin for quick page loads, now the Pi can build/render content dynamically just as fast as the previous hosts page caching did, so page cache has been disabled.
