New domains!

Over the next two months or so I plan to move this blog over to a dedicated server, not because is bad, but because just offers a lot in terms of themes and widgets and things to play with (and because I want the server anyway for various programming projects, and it may pull duty hosting On Target and Wallpaper and herself’s book site as well).

Step one in this process was to install on a local LAMP stack on my laptop and that’s done and I’m playing about with it and maybe I’ll write something up on that later, I’m planning on writing about the entire process of switching from to anyway.

Step two was registering domain names. It’s step two because wordpress will allow you to map a domain name to an existing blog, and that eases the handover slightly. So far I’ve only mapped the one domain, but the others will all become active over the coming weeks. So in a few weeks, you can read this blog at all of the following:

Step three : Profit!

Actually, step three is to source the server, but the underpants gnomes are funnier…

    So you will need to keep your laptop on all the time till you get a server? Just wondering because for me it was server – domain name – so I did it in reverse order. I used digiweb and it was fine. But then again I didn’t have an existing wordpress blog.

    I have to tell you though, I had some fun with the CSS. Fun as in grinding one’s incisors…

    No, the laptop is a local development LAMP setup (the benefit of a beefy dual-core laptop with 4Gb of RAM and a 64-bit OS is that you can do stuff like this). Once I have the site the way I’d like it to look, I’ll rsync or hg push to the server and that’ll be that.

    Thanks to J I actually know what LAMP stands for, as opposed to thinking it’s a nice frilly shade which casts light on your screen 🙂
