Installing New Software

by W.F. Price on May 10, 2012

I’m working on installing some membership/forum software to better handle comments, and it’s a bit tricky. Site may have some issues for a while. If there’s trouble accessing content, it can be read at: feeds.feedburner.com/thespearhead

If an installation fails and crashes the site and I can’t figure out why, I’m going to have to upload the backup, and that could take a long time. If I have to upload a database backup it will take even longer — this is a very large site by now.

So don’t worry if the site goes offline for a while. I’ve dealt with all the security issues and there are no problems with the host, so any downtime (hopefully very little if any) will simply be due to installing software or restoring the site if there’s a fatal problem during installation/configuration.
