It’s a R&D site & I needed to do some R&D without fracking up the wordpress install.
For fun – I put one of my favorite Acts from Macbeth 4.1; The 3 witches. It should make the site a little more interesting to the casual observer, but not by much 😉 It’s all behind the scenes R&D server stuff there.

Learned something new about .htaccess: Apache has uses a directory hierarchy is not limited to the “root” web directory. It extends up to the parent user directory… and possibly higher up to help my hosting provider manage multiple domains on my el-cheapo-but-reliable-shared-hosting-plan

The symptom: changes to ~/foass.1001010.com/.htaccess wasn’t working

The cause: I had “backed up” a .htaccess to my user dir “~/.htaccess” months ago and forgot all about it. So when Apache loaded it’s rules, it checked the user dir first.

The solution: get rid of the ~/.htaccess file

Also learned that Dreamhost tech support rocks for knowing about it.  They were awesomely polite & helpful.
But in my embarrassed state of mind; I only heard “You had the parking brake on when you tried to drive, duh”
