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”

I let this page go idle for way too long. So long that an old (unpatched) install of a web app let some junk in & started auto-posting spam everywhere 🙁
So I’m starting over with a fresh WordPress install in a new user directory 🙂 Sure, I’ll start over – but that’s OK. I’m a horrible writer and the world is better off for not having to read all of my musings. That’s what Facebook and Google+ are for.
This time I’ll lean on Dreamhost’s commitment to automaticaly keep all my One-Click installs up to date.
Sorry about the theme. I’m a programmer, just be glad it’s not RGB(255,0,255) and RGB(0,0,255) with Comic Sans. 😉
