To never update a blog from SVN in the middle of a traffic surge.
For some reason after executing "svn up" in the shell, *everything* in the wp-content folder that was not on the SVN was deleted!! I don't understand it, and no other folder was touched, but it's quite obvious, seeing as all plug-ins and themes have vanished. Please bear with us while we do something with the theme; then wp-cache the site…
Thank god for SSH.. Some quick wgets and tars and unzips got rid of most of the damage. I've gone as far as to get rid of the WP svn completely, sorry, but I cannot afford to have that happen again. If you notice any quirks thus far, please leave a comment..
