WordPress (en)

This Blog hosted at 1&1 uses WordPress. Please find here some remarks on usage and experiences.

The Software

This blog is running since 2008 starting with WordPress’s German version 2.6.0 and using a modified TerraFirma theme (see below). In August 2009 it was updated to 2.8.4 „by hand“.

In January 2013 it was switched over to a (new) MySQL5.0 as the old 4.0 one (in contract 1&1 business 5) was no more connectable by php. Experiments to migrate the whole thing (incuding users, passwords, permalinks, design and all) to another (1&1 virtual) server and WordPress 3.5 run technically OK but in the end un-satisfctory — put mildly … weiter lesen »
