Google Cache Saves The Day

Filed under: Main — Ryan Jones @ 1:04 pm

buy modafinil canada online I made an amateur web designer mistake today, but luckily Google’s cache was there to bail me out. Somebody alerted me to a spelling error on one of my smaller sites, so I opened it up in my editor to fix it. Some of you know where this is going.

When I opened it up, I opened it live… on the server. When I clicked save, the editor crashed. Bye bye went the page of my website. It just so happens that this was the homepage.

Luckily, I designed the site so that actual content was all in include files – separate from the PHP logic. Heading over to Google I managed to do a search for “cache:www.example.com” and view source to get all my content back.

If it weren’t for Google, I’d have had to wait a few hours until I could get my hands on a backup version of the website’s code.

Thanks Google.

  1. I guess I should mention that I was doing this update from my laptop… where I didn’t have any backups stored. Had I done this from the office, it wouldn’t have been an issue.
