Hey Garvin, What would it take to get rid of those warnings? I know to look over warnings, but to the average person that would be enough to stop them in their tracks. Maybe once the book is done we can take a bit of time to clean up any non-friendly errors. The one thing I like about wordpress is t...

on my home system (OS X) I just did the following to get it working ./configure make sudo make install sudo /usr/local/nginx/sbin/nginx done. My system has a TON of devel stuff on it, so most dependencies are probably met there. I am now seeing a page that says "Welcome to nginx!" and its ...

Oh, I understand what you want. You will need to do a 302 (or 301) redirect in the old servers htaccess. I am probably one of the least qualified people to help with this, so I am going to let someone else answer that.

Regex scares me. :?

Steps: use phpmyadmin to export the current database Download the files from your current site via FTP import the database onto the new server using phpmyadmin Upload the files from your old server to new ...

Telling apache the directory index was just screwing it up; it happens. By commenting it out apache is still using that index.php file by default and should have no implication on the security of your server.

Have you tried commenting out DirectoryIndex in the htaccess? All you need to do is put a # in front of that line.

Hrm, interesting... Does the index.php file work anywhere else on the server? By this I mean in the root directory domain.com does index.php work by default? Is the server running apache? If not htaccess will not work. Mind sending me a link to the site so I can take a further look at it? A PM would...

At the top of .htaccess put in

Code: Select all

DirectoryIndex index.php


This should automatically bring up index.php when you load the domain.

Give me about 12 hours and I will give it a go on my laptop. I don't see any reasons for it not to install on OS X as it is *NIX based. There might be some dependency issues, but darwin ports should resolve that.

I've got a new server that is going to be provisioned within in 30min (according to the host). I am going to give nginx a try because everything I've read about it sounds amazing.

I'd hazard a guess if Chickens looked into his logs and studied how his users are navigating his blog he might find a similar trend. I could be wrong but...

I use both. I've used categories forever and just started using tags. I like the tags better because of the related posts option. I feel that the tags are less formal than categories. For example on my site I will do the following: A post about Vista I will put in microsoft, vista, and some other ta...

Found it!

If you change the format of your permalinks the karma visitor tracking dies. I changed mine to %year%/%month%/%day%/%title%/ and the tracking pukes out.

It only took me installing every single plugin on a test site and having it still work to figure out the actual root of the issue. :lol:

It looks like the karma plugin is not active; the log does not exist. To verify it was not something I did in my template I've set the theme to Serendipity 3.

I should get time later today to test to see what exactly might be causing the problem.
