Thanks in advance,Ive never had to deal with this situation and im at a loss on recovering these files.An admin accidently ran rm -rf /* instead of rm -rf /home/userdir/*so ... [by jsox79]
Is there any sense in running fsck -N first or should we just use -y right away and get it all over and done with fast?
When we run fsck or e2fsck with the -y option and there are some serious file system problems, it silently unlinks any orphaned files to the lost+found.
That's all fine and dandy when there's no big problems, normally no files need to be unlinked and fsck just runs and fixes t
I installed Ubuntu server 10.04lts. It worked great for many months, until today i decided to run fsck on the system partition and although it warned me, I kept pressing yes and now it will only boot into grub prompt.
Unfortunately file system corruption on agila has forced us to bring the server offline and proceed with a FSCK of /home immediately in order to prevent possible data loss. We will keep this thread updated with our progress.
I've created a new non-root user, dev, that so far does not belong to any groups, and I've been following this guide to help me setup Apache for hosting sites under this user's public_html directory (this is a development machine).
