Hand Crafted Bits

The site took a dive yesterday; completely fubar’d.

So today I sftp’d my backup of the old wp-content directory into a totally new GoDaddy server instance, which then required hand-jamming the mysql backup into a parallel reality complete with new host locations, logins, and passwords for everything.

It took about three hours, and I’m pretty sure it’s all back up and running now.

It’s interesting that I’ve been around long enough that on the fly analysis of database architecture and rattling off strings of SQL to do in-place key changes and whatnot is no big deal, but I’ve also been around long enough that I’m definitely getting too old for this stuff. 🙂
