Dead on arrival

I destroyed my blog posts from June 2005 to the present. Whew. I don’t know what to say. When I get motivated I will describe in detail how I did it as a warning to anyone who wants to use the phpMyAdmin tool. phpMyAdmin is a web based program that allows you to interact with MySQL, a database program. Most blogs use some sort of database to store all of the posts, categories, tags, etc. My blog is powered by WordPress which uses MySQL.

  1. It was accidental. I was trying to make a backup of the database. This is the problem with hosting my blog on my own domain. I am responsible for making backups and installing and customizing. There is a large community of support and documentation for WordPress, but I just mis-read some instructions and clicked the wrong thing. I didn’t really understand what I was doing, just following the steps for backup as best as I could.
