My website, Twitter and Facebook went nuts today because I forgot to add a STOP event to a chain of commands for automatic cross-posting on all my social media accounts and an exception rule when replying directly to a specific twitter account.
My sincere apologies. The problem should be fixed now.
Happy 2015 everyone. This is just an “status” post to note the new blog theme (twenty fifteen) and to make sure everything clicks when it is supposed to.
My site was down because PHP didn’t like the new WordPress 3.2.1.
Long story short, if you get the dreaded “500 internal server error” after the WordPress 3.2.1 upgrade AND you are using 1&1 hosting, here’s what you need to do…
- Edit the php.ini file (or create a new one) to MEMORY=128MB (or just bump the number that is there up in increments of 64 MB)
- Edit the .htaccess file to force 1&1 to use PHP5 by adding “AddType x-mapp-php5 .php” (thanks TECHNOBLOG)
- Upload the changed files and you’re back.
A slight AAAAAAAAAAAAAA is just what I needed to wake me up this morning!
Oooohhhh yeah. It was one of those months. (Month and a half actually!) Big, bad, fast, relentless, ugly, and lots of sharp teeth.
I did manage to twitter almost daily, so I didn’t totally vanish off the ‘net.
Anyhow, now that things have calmed down I’m going to see if I can get this site moving again.
And with that….
I think the phrase “ahaheeyuhhhggh” can best sum up this last week. Road trip after road trip after road trip (all business based), followed by server crises after server crises. You know things are chankla-riffic when I don’t even have a moment to blog.
Anyhow, posts should resume to somewhat normal tomorrow.
Still working on the blog backend here.
New posts should be up around tomorrow.
Going to make some changes to the backend of the blog. Things should be back (hopefully) soon.
Things have been more bananas than usual, so I’m going to take a much needed break.
Posts should get back to normal around the new year.
Merry Christmas everybody!
The “Monday Morning Music” for today was post #600! Not too bad for a “making it up as I go along” personal blog!
To celebrate the 600th post, I’ve stolen posted some more comic covers that also passed the big “600”! (I have no idea what I’m going to to for the 1k post though!)
