Lol if anyone is subscribed to my blog, then you may of recently received about 144 new emails from this blog.
That’s because when I imported all my posts in to my blog, I forgot to disable the Subscribe2 plugin!
Of course why!?
I have moved hosting, I am now no longer hosting my website and blog on Lycos webhosting, I have moved to Hostgator!
I was with Lycos for about six years, and three of them was using Tripod, Lycos free hosting!
I have been meaning to move hosts for a while now.
I have had no trouble with the service provided by Lycos, and the times I have had to contact their support I got quick answers!
But, there was some limitations with the way the server and PHP were setup.
For example, to get my blog working correctly I had to have two additional plugins. One of them changed the default compact WordPress rewrite rules to the verbose type.
And the second was to disable canonical redirects. The server was setting an incorrect $_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’] value, which sometimes caused some pages to time out with constant redirects.
I contacted their support staff and they said that they were unable to support a 3rd party product.
I installed their One Click Site install of WordPress, but it was version 2.3.2, which doesn’t suffer from the same problem. They told me that they had no plans to upgrade their version of WordPress.
I can’t remember where I heard about Hostgator, but so far its been good!
The control panel is a little confusing, but that’s only because I’m not used to it yet.
They allow you to have multiple databases, so I have separate databases for my blog, website, and linux-links.
I went with their baby package, which still works out cheaper than Lycos.
And the best bit!?
I have been able to ditch the two plugin’s, and all parts of my blog still work!
But I am still using Lycos to serve my domain’s from.
For some strange reason the past month has been a bit of a slowdown time for me, I don’t know what it is, but I just cant seem to be able to get into anything, or do anything!
Take this blog as an example, the last time I posted was the 4th of February, two weeks since the post before.
In those three weeks I have done practically nothing, even though I have added a couple to plugins to my blog, but that’s just about it.
Linux Links is at a stand still.
The only things I do do regularly is feel tired, and work!
And its valentines this week, and I haven’t got my girlfriend anything
I’ve got this week off work, so its a good time to recharge my batteries, and build my computer!
Hopefully I’ll be back to my ways next week
Till next time, if I don’t fall asleep!
I woke up Friday
morning afternoon at about 12:30, and I had a slight headache!
I made myself some eggy–bread for
I then went back to sleep for another half an hour and woke up still with my headache.
I went out shopping with my girlfriend to asda and then the mall, and I just couldn’t stop shaking
I had an early night that night, honest, well nearly midnight is early! Lol!
I woke up this morning with a slight headache, but i wasn’t as bad as last nights, and I’ve had this headache all day now!
I’ve been on my computer all day, but I haven’t managed to make any of my planned updates to my website!
But I have added the SRG Clean Archives plugin to my blog.
I’m just going to post this entry and make sure that the changes I made to the plugin work before I let it loose!
Till next time
Edit: It works!
