I’ve spend the last two and a half days trying to work out why my new blog and website aren’t working. In a nutshell, the server they were on got corrupted. Eventually things were sorted out onto a new server, and in theory I should have been able to carry on as normal.
(warning, techie moanie stuff approaching)
Except I couldn’t. For one thing, I could find out what was wrong, but not how to fix it. I couldn’t get access to the place where I sort out the posts and the look of the blog in order to fix it through WordPress. And then when I worked out I’d have to reinstall the WordPress software, I found the tool to do that was missing from the server management software. It just seemed like every step of the way I was finding another problem, and I’d get a not-very-helpful answer from tech support to the problem I’d just worked out, just after I’d sent in a new query and update.
(techie stuff done)
So rather than wait and wait, I thought I’d better come back here and at least do my bit for the people that are expecting their blog tours to be done.
I apologise for the delay, and apologise even more that I can’t access what I’d written on the other blog, so have to make it all up again.
But thanks for being here :D
