Server Problems

The company that hosts whisstock.com had a serious mysql server problem and data became corrupted – which basically means that we have lost all database entries from 9th July to 29th September 2016.

So any member who registered between these dates is no longer registered. And members who purchased designs in that period will no longer be able to access them.

Ironically, automatic backups are created every 90 days and the next backup was due on the 1st October – so this problem couldn't really have come at a worse moment in respect of lost data.

So if you were a member prior to 9th July 2016, but purchased plans in the period 9th July to 29th September, and can on longer access them, please let me know and I will add them back to your Design Portfolio.

If you became a member between 9th July and 29th September and purchased plans, pleas let me know and i will re-instate your membership and access to the plans you bought. You will need to give me your UserName; I will issue a temporary password.

And if you became a member, but did not purchase plans, also let me know and I will re-instate your membership. You will need to give me your UserName; I will issue a temporary password.

I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. We will be taking steps to make a local backup of our database more frequently than the 90 days which the server does. We had been under the impression that the server backup was a continuous process, rather like Apple's Time Capsule – we were wrong ...
