If you are seeing this it means I have finally succeeded in upgrading chriscurnow.com!
It started with a new iMac G5 to replace the ageing Titanium Powerbook which I was beginning to become concerned about. A couple of times it didn’t start up neatly and I just had that feeling that one day it just wouldn’t start up at all.
The next part of the plan was to upgrade to MT 3.x. I wasn’t even going to bother installing MT 2.x on the new machine. So, as you can see, that is running.
Before that thought there was some under the bonnet stuff. I had decided I was going to run the Mk II on mysql rather than the standard Berkely db that comes with MT. It was a couple of days work to get mySql working properly with MT. Installing mySQL was a breeze, but then there are the Perl drivers. That took a bit longer and didn’t work straight off.
In fact, I’ve had problems at every step of the way. I’m sure it was mostly because I was upgrading through a non-conventional upgrade path.
I just went to import the old entries from chriscurnow.com and MT told me it couldn’t find the import script?? Oh well, back to the FAQ and the support forums.
I’m sure all your favourite posts will be back within a couple of days.
Also, have no fear, all your favourite links and sub-blogs will be back as well. Hey, just give me some time.
