The virtual server Titan had some issues in which core libraries became corrupted. This required me to rebuild the system, which is where the name server, mail server, database, and webserver is on. Of course, my old stage4 virtual server images for Gentoo were too old, which required me to rebuild from scratch, verify and restore the database/webserver files, and install all the system processes again.
As you can see, MySQL and apache are back up. Postfix/courier is more of a bitch to setup and will be available soon, so the forums won't send out emails just yet.
No data was lost, as I was able to safely shutdown the virtual machine and all the data matched up well with the nightly backup from the previous night.
On a personal note, I really should move my mail server to Google Applications, as I have for some of the other domains on here, as that is the crappiest part of managing on a server, and Google does a very nice job.
