Which is to say, here goes quite a bit.
I’m about to try to update my WordPress 2.5 to 2.7. I just did that over on colonelpod.com with the click of a button, because I had that boy on SimpleScripts. And that’s nice. But I haven’t converted this one, yet. The one thing SimpleScripts doesn’t do is convert an existing installation. So,… I’m going to have to fiddle around with lots of things, and let’s hope not too much breaks. Backing up things now.
What I should do:
- manually upgrade to 2.7 (many steps in itself)
- backup the database
- move the installation out of the way
- reinstall a 2.7 with simple scripts
- restore the database
- copy in the local files that have been added from the old copy
The new backend of WordPress is worth the pain I’m about to suffer.
I upgraded to the WordPress 2.5 – and got the stats package. After installing, it told me where to check on the stats, only to give me some friendly gibing…
I think I’ll have a sarsaparilla.
Day 23 of the new blog and the spammers have found me.Â 13 spam comments showed up this evening.Â It seems I didn’t have Askimet installed, yet.Â It always does a fabulous front-line on WordPress spam comments.
Try http://bshirley.livejournal.com until I get this set up.
Everything below this is being pumped over from LJ from 2003 onward.
BELOW BE OLD STUFF, YARRRRR
it should be interesting to see where this experiment goes. right now, i’m just trying to populate the emptiness of the page so that i can see what various styles look like.
i expect this to be an opinions page.Â Bill’s Ed/Op if you will, or perhaps my digest of the news of various sorts.Â but i also expect to put some personal items on here: things of particular note, where i’m traveling to, or what the dog’s doing right now,
