had a short outage this morning here at RagingRev.com…i was pretending like i knew what in the hell i was doing with all this PHP stuff, and deleted the posts.php file in my directory because i was having trouble getting it to show up in 2.7 or wordpress. here’s a hint: bad idea. I ended up having to completely reinstall wordpress…wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, and I didnt lose anything—thanks to wordpress.org for being geniuses and making it so easy to fix.

so don’t go round deleting files on your server unless you are far smarter than I.

    I haven’t upgraded to WP 2.7 yet, but I usually work on my files through my server control panel. The only thing I have to watch out for is my php and code illiteracy. I haven’t had to reinstall WordPress, but have managed to cause database errors on occasion. That’s always a lot of fun.

    Have a great weekend!

      good point Vishnu…very good point

  • 2.7 is actually a very decent installation from what I’ve played with so far. The control panel takes a bit of getting used to since the previous version, though, but it’s nice and clean. A few tweaks may be needed for some user friendliness, though.

    Although, I am still fairly-much at war with every theme that I try out — even the ones that I write myself.
