Some of you1 might have gotten a notification recently that I posted a new article. Regrettably yesterday afternoon I was the receiver of a wild hair up my butt which caused me to write a new blog. I say regrettably because in the process of trying to update the site I noticed things weren’t quite working properly. I then made a series of uninformed decisions based on guessing and browsing around via FTP and deleted enough random crap that I broke the configuration. I basically put my hammy filthy casual fingers to work as a sort of novice Civil War surgeon/sysadmin, randomly deleting things that didn’t look important and even changing over the wp-config.php file to the wp-config-sample.php file without modifying the values.

Lessons learned:

  • Always back up your articles in case you have to roll back your configuration by a day or two.
  • Watching 10 minutes of Mr Robot does not mean you are qualified to diddle with your server’s brain.
  • My hosting company is not only awesome, but patient when their customers go full toddler, shit the bed, then light the walls on fire in an attempt to fix their mistake.

A few hours of explaining my lack of a technique was all it took to let the professionals sort out the issues and voila! Here we are… Somehow ahead of being behind right where we started.

Dear Likes-To-Hold-Down-Buttons,

First off, I’d like to thank you for illustrating by text your thoughts as the equivalent of leaning on a bitchy, whiny car-horn with a spelling problem. The 53 question marks1 after your two points really showed me just how confused you are, in spite of the sentence prefacing it being a statement and not a question. Your punctuation proclivities are only further proclaimed with the 52 exclamation points1 accenting “CUNT”, although I don’t know why you choked up on that last exclamation point. Is it an unconscious reflection on your confusion slightly outweighing your anger?
