Been with DreamHost since 2005. They have somehow just lost or deleted 19 active, paid up and running websites from my account and aren’t replying to any support tickets.
For past several of those years I’ve hosted about 22 domains under 2 separate vps servers and one vps MySQL server
Ps1 = more than 13 users and about 15 domains
Ps2 = one domain and one user (high traffic)
Shared = old low traffic sites x 5
PsMysql = housed ALL databases
Recently discussed with support my interest in upgrading to a 8gb dedicated server and was informed it would be seamless and handled for me with very little or no downtime.
Ps2 was moved in about 20 min. I was astonished. Wow!! Way to go guys. The nest day I sent an email to support asking to go ahead and move ALL of my users and domains over and email me when it was done.
The next morning (today) I had an email saying "congrats! All your users have been migrated and your vps servers have been removed from your dashboard. Good luck and enjoy your new powerful server.
checked online 8 hours ago and only ps2 and shared appear on dedicated server. All sites from ps1 are down and all users from ps1 are gone and now show hosting status on dashboard as "DNS only"******
I’ve submitted 8 support requests as 911 status and a phone call request but have heard nothing at all from anyone.
I have numerous confirmations from support that say "congrats all users have been moved - not automatic, human.
How could they not notice that I’m missing 14-15 users and over 10gb of website domain folders?? Of course I have backups and databases are still intact but all users and sites are gone. If vps hadn’t been deleted I could go back and copy files but it’s gone. My account status currently shows only 3 total uses and 2 active domains.
Nobody is responding in support. what would you do? I don’t want to start rebuilding websites and users in case they can be brought back from the dead but this seems like an ENORMOUS mistake/oversight that is bringing my website clients much stres And my own stress is immeasurable. If someone would just call and say that it’s being worked on it would be so much better than total radio silence.
I am mostly upset that my old vps was deleted before I even had a chance to inspect and verify data integrity.
To top it off, my office phone system was running on one of their openvbx one click installs (which is awesome when it works) but all of that is also gone. So, none of my worried clients can reach my office and this is tearing me and my sanity up.
