If you have nothing good to say…

As kids we have all been told, “If you have nothing good to say, say nothing at all.” I have so much to complain about since Saturday that I am almost at loss for good things to say. But, I will breathe deep and try.

If you read my posts or subscribe to my feeds, my apologies for the garbage posts. I periodically check my hosting provider to see what is offered. I upgraded my web space with better features and services for a substantially reduced cost yesterday. This is great for me and everyone. Apparently my hosting provider made an error and updated the DNS settings to the new site before I had actually built and configured the new location. If you see this post I have corrected the issues and you are looking at the new site. It was not the smooth transition I have executed many times before.

This was all really kicked off when I upgraded my site to use BlogEngine My hosting provider has some odd configuration settings on some of their platforms. BlogEngine has an ‘Admin’ folder for blog management (I hate the term blog, and use “Journal” where I can). To implement BlogEngine on my site I had to rename the Admin folder to a ‘safe’ folder name. I chose ‘journal_admin’ and updated all the source code to use that folder structure. Not a difficult task, but annoying when I want to apply an updated.

By changing my host platform I no longer need to make this change to the ‘admin’ folder in the BlogEngine source. The new platform allows me to have folder names of my choice, which is as it should be. The garbage on my ‘new’ site was test code to make sure I could fully implement BlogEngine source without any change. No one was supposed to see that, however. Such is life.
