Old Website gone. Is it REALLY gone? Now what? [duplicate]

Please excuse my total cluelessness. Based on what I’ve read in response to a previous question, it looks lie my lapsed domain name = All contents of my WordPress website have evaporated. Is that correct? (My site was created in 2014, and I probably let it lapse two years ago).

If I have to start from scratch, can you suggest what’s currently the best CMS for dummies? All I want is to be able to edit text, add/subtract photos and music videos, and do so without having to interact with the formatting and graphic elements. As simple as it can get. Any and all suggestions and tips are welcome. I have a MacBook, btw. Thank you!

[ Other – Society & Culture ] Open Question : Will the coronavirus ever be gone?

We now have 3,000,000 cases Worldwide of COVID-19 or the coronavirus, and we have 211,099 Total Deaths, as well as 988,197 new cases in the US, with now over 50,000 Total Deaths in the US! Will this thing ever have 50,000 new negative cases for days? Will the coronavirus threat ever stop growing? How many more months until the coronavirus cases will go down daily instead of up daily? How many more months until the daily thousands of new cases.will stop?

[ Politics ] Open Question : Has this pointless, useless quarantine gone too far?

Lockdown hasn’t accomplished ANYTHING; deaths have doubled, positive confirmed cases have tripled….quadrupled even. The wretched virus would spread and people would get infected and die nonetheless. This is all just a scheme from our corrupt callous governments to run the economy to hell, make everybody suffer in basically prison, and to keep 100 year olds from dying. It’s not about keeping hospitals “overwhelmed” one bit, since there are plenty of beds and room in hospitals. The real world when it returns, will just be cavemen, no jobs, no schools, no entertainment, no sporting events, and paranoia of a “second or third wave.” And what’s worse, stupid sheep people are “totally cool” with it.

Where’s my GRUB2 menu gone?

I’ve installed 4 different ‘Ubuntu’ flavours on 1 laptop. For demonstration and comparison. (L, K, Mint & X)

I would like to clean up the GRUB menu, put a BG in etc., but I can’t find it! There is, in each of the 4 installations/partitions a directory /etc/default/grub, but there’s nowhere the 10 lines of choice to be seen.

Where is it? And if I can extract it from the MBR, where should I do that? In the first or the last partition ?

git (master) prompt gone after reinstallation of Ubuntu

git remote -v shows the correct origin and upstream url’s but I wish I could just get the (master) prompt back.

I reinstalled Ubuntu and installed Git.
I think the (master) shows up for any new git repos but for ones carried over from the old Ubuntu installation on an external HDD don’t show (master). Is there a quick solution?

Windows section of hard drive gone after installing ubuntu. Only have 114g out of 500g

I attempted to install ubuntu alongside of windows. I installed it on a partition around 114 gig, to leave the rest of my 500gb hard drive to Windows. After installing it, the entire windows partition is missing. I can only boot into Ubuntu, and cannot see the windows partition in any application I’ve tried. Including gparted, and tusks. The entire windows partition is missing even if I only load ubuntu through my USB drive and select “try ubuntu”. How can I get back the missing space on my hard drive?

O365 Drop off library seems gone

strangest thing happened today. In the site contents the dropofflibrary is gone. When I go to the URL sites/SiteCollection/DropOffLibrary it forwards me to a one of my sitepages. When I go to sites/SiteCollection/Forms/AllItems.aspx I see the contents of the dropofflibrary. What happened or better, how can I restore this?

Magento 2 Storview switcher is gone?

In Magento 1.9, when we created multiple storviews and enable all of them, then in the top navigation part of the page on frontend, there will be a dropdown to let customers to switch between different storeviews.

It looks like this feature is gone in Magento 2? or at least it’s not showing in default Luma theme. Can we get this storeview switcher on the frontend?

I’m using Magento 2.3.1

`MySQL server has gone away` during long running cron

I have a series of stock importers, all of which run of mostly the same code, each with a few tweaks, with regards to how they fetch their stock data from different suppliers.

These all run off cron, however I’m running into issues with one of them – it fetches it’s data by API which is rate limited to 1 req/s, because of this the data fetching takes about 15 minute. After this, it attempts to get the size of a previously fetched product collection, for logging purposes. At this point the process crashes out with a 2006 MySQL server has gone away error.

I’ve tried increasing various timeouts and changing some mysql settings to no avail, e.g.

        ini_set('mysql.connect_timeout', 14400);         ini_set('default_socket_timeout', 14400);         ini_set('mysql.allow_persistent', 1); 

I’ve been talking to the server hosting company who insist it’s a code issue, but it still feels like some form of timeout.

What settings should I be looking into? It always crashes out at the same point if data is fully fetched – if I modify the script to test, e.g. by using dummy data instead of taking the time to fetch it from the supplier, no SQL error occurs.
