Fixing my Weblog

Filed under: blogging — jonEbird @ 8:40 pm

Some time ago I lost my harddrive. At that point, I was making infrequent backups to the laptop. Not very admin-like for someone who’s profession is a Systems Administrator. It could have been much worse, but still a pain none the less.

I had to solve various issues with my home setup. First the harddrive vulnerability. For that, I bought two 320GB harddrives and setup a /dev/md0 RAID0 mirror. After that, I installed a fresh copy of Fedora Core 9. I got WordPress back up but honestly my site was still limping along. I left it that way for too long and have finally cleaned things up tonight, culminating the work by upgrading to WordPress 2.6.2.

Now let’s get back to writing more weblog entries.
