"because I try to set-up things to not break in the first place"

And if you do and they break then something serious is wrong. If it's running in a state you didn't intend it's not doing what you intended nor running in a way you anticipated and may well be corrupting stuff. Maybe the safest thing for the corporate website would actually be to be offline until morning. The alternative might be to be offline for a good while longer whilst you sort out the mess and restore from backup. I've always believed that a strong sense of paranoia is the first requirement for a good DBA.
