I am very pleased to announce that installation and initial setup of my new blog based on theÂ excellent WordPress engine is successfully complete today Sat 25 Nov 2006. I am still working on trying to port the old bblog database over as lots of great stuff still reside there. It will remain accessible at the old blog address if you need to check out any of the archives.
Several IT Forum 2006 delegates and attendees at my lightning demo asked me for recommendations on blog software. As you can see, I have tested and settled down on WordPress as it is very flexible, easy to use, powerful, extensible with plug-ins, up-to-date, open-source (free) and comes with lots of nice templates. It runs on various flavours of Unix as well as Windows, which is the case for my hosted ISP as long as PHP version 4.1 or higher and MySQL version 3.23.23 or higher are supported. Apache or LiteSpeed web servers are recommended but IIS works without problems. You do need some means, by remote console or GUI, to modify and execute some of the PHP scripts and configure MySQL to get it running though.
As always, you are welcome to submit comments online to let me know what you think about this new site. Pardon for any mess while renovation continues. Thank you for your continual support and feedback!
