I do 4-hourly backups so should anything ever happen to the server, we'll be back up and running soon enough with minimal data-loss πŸ‘

server update: 's weird issues should be resolved. I had a dodgy rsync backup command in place which I've now corrected, and did a wipe of old cached media for safe measures.
