On May 21st, Muxtape experienced an error that caused every song in the database to be overwritten with the wrong artist & title. I initially reported this as a malicious act, but after taking the site down and investigating further it was clear that it was a fault of the software, for which I am wholly responsible. The last available complete backup of the songs database was three weeks old; so while the site is now repaired and back online, most songs uploaded in the last three weeks have disappeared.
I’m truly sorry for this massive inconvenience. Data integrity is something I take seriously, and to prevent this from happening again we’ve started creating complete backups of the database twice a day. In addition, Muxtape will soon be joined by two more developers (as opposed to one developer who’s constantly distracted by everything else it takes to start and run a business/web site).
Thanks for your patience and understanding through this, and please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
