One of WHT's self-confessed non technical members was surprised to receive a "cannot establish database connection" message from one of his sites. He contacted his host who told him that the database got deleted. He's hosted this particular site with the same host for around 10 years and has never deleted the database. He hasen't even logged into the site in a while. So he asked his host if there was any record of someone logging in, and when and where, and they told him that there is no record of any of this happening. So what's happened to his database? Is this something you've experienced as an end-user or host? Share your thoughts in the thread.

A member asks if anyone has faced a similar situation like he just has when a dedicated server is suddenly completely down. After talking to support he discovered that his entire RAID array was inaccessable and no partition existed. Eventually support advised him that the disks were pulled due to child porn being discovered. He had no prior warning, no information, and then suddenly his host acts in this way. When he asks for more details, like which IP and domain name was hosting the offending material, they decline to provide any further information. Not having experienced this before, he's having thoughts about something mysterious having occured, like the server accidentally being removed by their system. For those that have never experienced this type of sudden take-down before, can you share your experience, either as a provider or customer?
