Something horrible just happened. I had a functional,
accepting-tickets-from-emails RT going, and went to add a virtual host
for another department’s intranet site.
I wasn’t doing anything with RT. I was busy mucking up the apache
config, when I noticed during a restart
Warning: DocumentRoot [/opt/rt3/share/html] does not exist
And thought, what the hell? Went to look, and somehow everything in
/opt/rt3 except etc/ and local/ was blown away. Gone.
The files in etc/ and local/ were the defaults, as from a fresh install.
The directories themselves have a timestamp of about an hour ago.
I immediately went very, very carefully through my bash_history. I see
nothing like the nuke-all rm -rf you’d expect to find in a case like
this. The entire rt3/ dir being blown away I could understand as a bad,
bad typo: the two new versions of etc/ and local/ with all others being
gone completely mystifies me.
Before I go putting this all back, I’d like to identify what happened if
possible. I’m not sure where to even start looking.
Our wheels. Your freedom.
