Sorry for the downtime tonight

I messed up the web server for about 3 hours tonight. The problem was related to me working with IIS and Apache on the same machine.

If you notice anything amiss with your blog, let me know by posting a comment on the thread. While things should be back to normal now, when I was reinstalling the web server I may have missed something small.

The good news is that these changes are all related to getting a very nice WordPress setup created. Right now everything is in place (including automated FTP account creation.) The next step is to figure out how to make the preexisting MT stuff coexist with the new WP stuff.

My apologies for the down time,

  2. Hi Cinderella, is your blog working now?

    If this is it, then I think it is fixed now. I posted a test entry and it succeeded…

    If it is not fixed, please post here with your email address, or email me at jd_hodges_ii AT
