One character mistake.

A grim situation.How could a missed 'spacebar' key take down a web server? I'm sure there are lots of ways, but here is one that we found:

mv db /* ./
instead of:
mv db/* ./
When issued as root, things get nasty.

EV1 is in the process of restoring the BuddyGopher server after this catastrophic accident. Our production server is a sweet little HP P4 2.0Ghz running Redhat Enterprise on two 80GB HDs and 1.5GB of RAM. BuddyGopher should be back on-line later this weekend.
