That Hurt

The move broke stuff. First the whole site, then just the comments.

The new server has, I now learn, PHP compiled separately from Apache. Time to change the .htaccess file.

Plus, I'm now on Apache2, I learn. That has more .htaccess implications involving security settings I think I won't brag about. But I had forgotten why I did them that way, and I had to change them in a hurry.

Please let me know if anything seems more broken than usual.

    Just a test comment.

    Well, comments certainly are not fast….

    The front page always seemed to load pretty quick, and I am quite far away from your server.

    But comments were always pretty iffy…

    New problems have emerged in the module that blocks repeat commercial commentators. We are still under (re)construction….

    I hope this won’t bother regular users.

  5. michael says:

    OK. I may have beat that one into submission too. I hope.

  6. michael says:

    Except it takes about 60 seconds for a comment to post — 30+ seconds extra for the anti-junk filters….

    home page prompted for a login to http://www.iraqbodycount.net. The site says: “Count the Casualties Server”; possibly the javascript isn’t running the way it should?

    What’s broken ??

    My pocket book.
    My budget.
    My bank.

    Welcome to the New America.

    It did that once before on the old server – it’s something on their end. Eventually they fix it; meanwhile I turn it off.
