Annoyances, webhosts and shopping

Site update, I said I'd install WP-MU but my webhost doesn't support the software, it'll run WP but MU needs more resources--I'd need to open a support request with them and even then it's not guaranteed they'll make the necessary changes, it involves more than a few redirects :-( So back to plan A, indivdual installs per person, bloody annoying, was hoping for a universal login, but, well, it'll do.

Instead, tomorrow I might, if I can get the impetus together, go to the CARNAVAL DEL PUEBLO in Southwark. Or drag myself up north for the Innocent fete. Anyone else made a firm decision either way, and/or interested in either?

Today, apart from playing with webhosting stuff, updating all the old Blogger stuff I was using and moving it, I've also been shopping. I mentioned I was looking at mice, well, on a whim I went into Maplin, and ended up with a wireless mouse & keyboard combo, so I can type from anywhere in the room now, which is nice. I also, just might, have bought 6 books in Waterstones (and no, 'm not going to look at how cheap they would've been on Amazon)-I went in for the Fforde, and bought a whole lot more, bloody 3-for-2 offers. Oh, I might have bought about 6 months supply of Lush stuff, and encountered my first example of a bad shop assistant in there.

And I ate a whole Lyle's Golden Syrup cake. For breakfast. Healthy eating plan? Yeah, right...

Hurrah!

:D

I would love to come to the Carnaval with you, but sadly I don't think I'll be able to make it :( But have a good time anyway.

I was such a geek last night. On a saturday night, when I could have been out doing all manner of things, I installed bblog on my webserver. I was so chuffed when it worked!

I'm now going to try to install WP - just to see if I can!

It all started because I noticed that my hosting people were offering MySql for no extra cost...

I just wish they would upgrade SharePoint to 2007...

my word. WordPress is very very easy to install.
I used to be in awe of people who hosted their own blogs! Now I'm one of them haha.
Admittedly, I don't know how to check if this is MU or not..

nope - that'll be the standard one...

i just need to work out how on earth to remove the mu version from my webserver now, as i've got cgi-bin errors.

i take it's just a case of removing the database and removing the wpmu folder?

*is now regretting her earlier bravado*

tbh I think I installed it wrongly - the bit about subdomains confused me

Heck, download the LJ packages and install _that_!

You have to own the entire server in order to do that. No hosting company is running that version of Apache for its shared hosting plans, that I'm aware of.
