Back on the Case

Hey - waddaya know. I've recently been mildly chastised for not updating the blog in some time. (You know who you are, AMBM...) And I plead Not Guilty. Due to circumstances only slightly within my control, I haven't been able to log in to add/change/delete anything in weeks.

You see, the server on which this site is hosted was recently upgraded (wholesale) to a new version of the operating system which brought with it new versions of Apache, PHP & MySQL. Turns out there are changes in Apache that didn't recognize some directives that help this thing chug along. And frankly, after sitting at a screen writing and debugging code with which I'm somewhat familiar all day, the last thing I wanted to do was come home and debug someone else's code which I'd never seen before.

Anyway, I took some time this evening to research the issues and found a magic combination that allows me to login. I don't yet know if it's the "right" way to do it, but it works. I'll discuss it with the owner of the box later today.

So, now the site has been updated. I'll do more later, but it's late and I have to get up early. Not a good combination when brain power is actually supposed to be used at work.

Re: Back on the Case

That'd be the person by whom I was mildly chastised.
