I like to do things myself. It’s just the way I am. But I also like a quick way to see ‘what stupid things do I need to update?’ Thus I currently use Fantastico for 99% of my installations on this server. I just migrated the blog from my hand-hewn install to Fantastico, and it was relatively painless. I moved the /blog folder to /blog2, did a fresh install on /blog, and then copied the SQL db over. It was really easy and simple. I haven’t reinstated my old theme because I’m just not sure how much I like it.
Ipstenu (Mika Epstein)
I'm Mika (aka Ipstenu) and I'm complicated. I've been on the net since the days of dedicated terminals and Novation CAT modems and solved Missionaries and Cannibals (or Goats and Cabbages) before I was six, and blog about WordPress and technical/computer things at Half Elf on Tech.
