I was just finishing up my latest site, a huge events plugin, 2 months solid work.
I was going through the plugins, deleteing ones used for development, and I deleted a "Hello World" one-- what I didn't notice is that in the confirm delete, it said
"The following will delete 'Hello World' AND 'My-plugin'
I hit delete and it was gone.
I'm literally shaking I'm so upset. I wrote it once, then WordPress 3 RC1 came out, so I redid the entire plugin and there is NO WAY I can afford to write it a third time.
Can someone please, please, please, tell me that when PHP deletes files they go somewhere, and how I can get my baby back..
Please. I will be forever greatful.
(Note to everyone: ALWAYS BACKUP REGULARLY, ONCE A WEEK DOESN'T CUT IT)
