I love WordPress. It’s a great blogging platform that does a ton of other shit too. Too bad it sucks so much. Continue reading “WordPress Sucks.”
So, it has just now come to my attention that the IPv6 for this website (and every other site hosted on derpyhooves.xyz) has been down for the past month. This is the result of a high amount of stupidity on my part because I forgot to add two very simple lines to the Nginx config that would let it listen on IPv6. As a direct result, Nginx was listening on IPv4 ports, but not on IPv6. Smooth. Anyway, the IPv6 access should be fixed now. Let’s try not to be so derpy in the future.
The goal of trying Ghost was to potentially reduce RAM load. It has done the opposite. Ghost is using an insane amount of RAM on an instance that isn’t even carrying a large load. That’s insane. Ghost is kill.
So, there’s a new blogging system called Ghost. I thought I should try it because it seems interesting, so here goes. If you want to see my test install of Ghost, just head over to ghost.coltondrg.com.
So, over the last week I have been unable to upload images to the website because my CDN was still at the old server, but the website was over here. Luckily all the old images would still load just fine. The good news is that I have initiated the move of the CDN to this host. The bad news is that all images over here will be broken until the DNS starts resolving correctly. This could take a while, so don’t hold your breath. Luckily, as soon as the DNS does start resolving to the new host, everything will be back to normal again. 😀
That happened sooner than expected. The site is now running on the derpyhooves.xyz server with no apparent issues! Even better news, this server is running Nginx instead of Apache, which definitely gives the whole site a little extra peppiness and makes everything faster. Yay for Nginx.
Some time in the near-ish future, I’ll be moving this website to a different server. That’s right; I’m moving the server for a second time within one year. It’s insane. The new server is located at derpyhooves.xyz. The move will occur some time between now and February. Yes, that is very vague and leaves a five month time frame. No, I don’t care.
Lately, I have been forgetting to tag my posts, which is bad.
- It absolutely kills SEO.
- It makes the sorting system totally useless.
I’m sorry, and I’ll do my best to be better about it in the future, as well as correcting any old untagged posts.
I take it all back. Somehow, Twenty Fifteen has grown on me, so we’ll be using it for a while. I’m not sure how long, but whatever. Enjoy.
