Troubleshooting the Blog and Overdue Maintenance

Filed under: Cool Stuff,Personal — AJ @ 8:46 pm

Well, doing some troubleshooting of the Android WordPress client seems to point towards the fact I was using MySQL 4 and PHP4 as the main culprits.  I’d been on those ancient versions still because of the Wiicafe.com site which is co-located with this one having some legacy issues that I’d have to deal with, but this finally gave me the motivation to try tackling them.  I have not done the PHP update yet, but I was able to (apparently) successfully upgrade to the latest MySQL with minimal problems actually (about 2 hours of work for about 18 DBs) and was able to eliminate a lot of spam polluted DBs that were bogging the server down.  If the PHP update goes as smoothly I’ll be quite happy.
