I broke my website….
As you can tell, I host my website on WordPress. While many of you cringe at the very name, I like WordPress. WordPress may have only recently dropped from the security chatter, mostly due to shouts of “YAHOO” raising the noise floor, and WordPress can be very clunky, but I like it. So, as a bit of a personal challenge, I wanted to host my site myself.
I really only have a few, and I mean a few, regular readers, all of whom I interact with regularly, so I took the site down at my lease-lapse to save a little coin while I built. Exported the config, saved to my daily PC, Dropbox, and my home Samba server. Safe and sound.
Now it’s time to bring it SteveInIT back up.
But, as you can see, there are
not 20 posts behind this one. I broke (fixed) it. Well, I lost it. The hard drive in my PC crashed, so the local copy is gone. I can’t find it in my Dropbox at all, which is weird because I don’t ever delete anything from Dropbox. But I still have the Samba server, right? Wrong! Well, maybe wrong. I can’t find it there either. What I can find is the notepad I took to log where I put the exported config copies.I have the filename of the config in my log, so I can search for it, but no luck yet. My Dropbox is even installed in the Samba server, so I should be able to search the whole array and find 2 copies of the config. Again, haven’t yet, but I’ll upload it when I find it.
I have a few things to talk about, so I’m doing that first.
*Edited, since I fixed it.
