So my did in fact inadvertantly deleted all of the info on one of my servers. I called and asked “why" “well, it had a kernal problem.. it needed a reburn" “have you heard of a boot disk?" I guess not huh… well damnit.. heh i guess everything is OK. i didn’t lose anything special - just 40hrs of fresh php virtual host admin tools, about 30hrs of mysql work, 20hrs of system stuff, and about 10hrs of system configuration… alas.. i guess its nothing…:(
