I started this website back in 2009 and based on WordPress. By using WordPress, I hoped that I could focus on the content and didn’t have to spend a lot of time on the technology. Boy, was I wrong…. Time for a major overhaul.Read full article
I must admin; I have neglected my website for many years now and it is starting to fall apart. So it is time to revive it. Replace the maps plugin in order to show the GPS tracks again and if time permits: replace the old photo gallery with something new.
Earlier this year I moved my website to another hosting provider. Over the last few months I’ve noticed that the site displayed more and more error messages. It took some time to discover what was going on, but a few weeks back I found the cause: the websites that I run use more memory than allowed :-(
So, how to solve this? Well, the provider had a nice option: upgrade to a Virtual Private Server… Nice… but that’s far more expensive. After some feedback from a friend (thanks Simon!), I found another provider that delivers a good VPS option that even I can afford.
So, here we are. Up and running again on another server; moved from the US to Germany. I hope this runs fine for a while, since I don’t want to make moving websites around my next hobby ;-)
It seems that I am hitting some limitations of my hosting account and as a result my website is not displaying correctly anymore.
For now I have disabled the Google maps which solves some of the issues. However, you will find that the photos of my Australia trip may or may not show.
I’m working on it, but this will take a few weeks… :-(
I have started to integrate my website with my facebook account. The idea here is that anything I post on my blog should also appear on my facebook wall. When somebody leaves a comment on my website, it should appear on facebook; the same thing the other way around. Not sure if this is going to work, since there are a million options I can set in the plugin.
