My Blog Has Grown Up, Kinda.

Wed Jan 23, 2008 10:13 pm

So I moved my wordpress-hosted beer blog onto my own server with its own domain: http://www.beercraftsite.com.

This has been a hell of an experience. Linux (Ubuntu) is great if you know it, I guess. Slowly, I'm getting the hang of using the command line to move directories, while learning the php necessary to host a blog within the Wordpress framework. Hopefully, I can get the comments working soon, so KROC can trash all my posts.

The network likes to crap out around 2am. So did my wireless router. Powering the router down restored (slow) wireless connectivity, but not my hardwired server connectivity. Restarting network services did nothing. Now I have to figure out why the goddamn thing won't see the network. is this why people pay for hosting?

Sweet, another home-server person.

I'm running a Fedora 6 server - PHP, MySQL, Apache, etc.

I also put ISPConfig (google it) on as a free, open-source hosting control panel, so I can sell space off my server based off size and bandwidth.

For Ontario micros, King Pilsner is a good bet. So's Denison Dunkel. If you want to pick from further afield (don't know for sure what's available to you Canucks), i'd grab any of a hundred pale ales. The style is hoppy enough to stand up to heavy party food and be interesting to beer palates, yet not so over-the-top that Molson guys won't touch it.
