For anyone who’s notices some misbehavior on this site, I’m working on getting Asymptomatic moved to a different host.

The host it’s currently on, unixshell, is fine, except for the fact that they’re inconsistent with their ability to provide new hosting, and they’re not all that keep on backups. I lost a lot of data over the summer that I’m not happy about, but is probably more my fault than theirs. Still, that they don’t offer automated snapshot backups or a separate backup location as an add-on service is a potential problem.

I’ve set up additional hosting on SliceHost. It’s another VPS, so I have to manage my server myself. They don’t offer control panels for the server, like CPanel or Plesk. I’ve recently decided that I can live without them, although I’m going to need to learn the ins and outs of email server maintenance sooner than I might like. I don’t currently host email from either of these servers (I pay someone else to host that for me), so it’s not a big deal, but I may eventually want to set that up.

Anyway, I’m not sure what’s going on with my unixshell box. For some reason, it will run an old version of Habari in a redalt.com subdomain, but will not run a new checkout from anyplace. This has made it difficult to convert Asymptomatic over. I’ve had my Slice for a while and it’s been doing nothing, so I thought I would finally employ it.

Suffice to say, I love Debian Etch. It’s got PDO built-in and everything. I should probably write up some instructions for setting up a slice from scratch to run Habari (based entirely on sucking knowledge out of skippy’s brain). That would be useful.

Look for Aysmptomatic on a new server, soon.
