Server move

Yesterday the provider that hosted my blog let someone loose on the MySQL database causing my website to be unavailable. It was that very moment I decided I had enough of shared hosting.

I’ve moved the website to a Rackspace CloudServer, which basically is a VPS of which I have full control. It’s a lot faster than the previous host, although not as fast as I had hoped. But that could very well be the fault of WordPress.

I’ll let it run like this for a month. If costs do rise above $20 a month then I’ll move to a proper VPS from Linode. Why? More ram, more traffic and more space for the same amount of money.

I’m currently running nginx. First time I’m using this so am still having some problems. So don’t expect everything to work 100%.

Update: I’m now using lighttpd instead of nginx, but performance seems worse. The strange bugs got fixed though.

Update 2: Now it is…  curl wasn’t installed 🙂

rackspacecloudfiles.mod now supports metadata

The latest update of rackspacecloudfiles.mod, version 1.06, comes with metadata support for objects. You can now retrieve metadata and set it. Setting metadata can be done when uploading a file or you can change it on existing objects.

htbaapub.mod updated to 1.03

htbaapub.mod got updated to version 1.03 today.

This version contains an updated fsm.mod, rest.mod and rackspacecloudfiles.mod. If you use any of these modules I recommend updating.

Download htbaapub.mod 1.03 (contains source code of all modules)
