Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Back to reality

Talk Like a Pirate Weekend was fun, but now it’s time to get back to normal again. Mostly.

Saturday, I was updating my test copy of WordPress from CVS, when I accidentally ran the update command from the wrong directory. I ran it from the top level of this web site. Suddenly, I realized that I had broken everything. I had two options: I could restore things back to WP 1.2, or I could just go ahead and upgrade to the current alpha code. I went with the latter choice.

Since I’m now running experimental code, some things could be broken. If you spot anything, let me know. Everything seems to be fine so far, however.

  2. What would you do if the comments were broken and we could not comment, and your email server was down?!

  3. I’d probably get some work done 😉

    Don’t feel bad Dougal, I’ve done this many times myself.

    Well at least you got things back up. One time I accidentally deleted my database and I didn’t have a backup. I had to use Google’s cache to re-create all my posts.
