In fact, we probably have technical difficulties more often since we tend to *boldly go where no man has gone before*.
This week has been a week of just such difficulties. Some were self-induced (and therefore I have no one to blame, throw sticks at or give the evil eye), and some were brought on by outside influences. (Dare I say *hacker*?)
So, my apologies.. on the eve (so to speak) of a major launch, my site is in the toilet. If you visited and got a perfectly white page and nothing else, don’t worry, it’s not you. You have stepped off into the Twilight Zone called *Blogging Cenay style*.
I appear to be back up and running, though some stat’s are gone and one or two plugins are no longer is present. And strangest of all, my completely upgraded 2.7 WordPress installation reverted to 2.6.3. Go figure.
Couple of hints if your blog goes wonky:
- Try accessing pages individually…are they still there?
- Try to connect to your blog’s database using a tool like MySQL Query browser
- If you recently installed a plugin, try deleting it with your FTP client
- If all else fails, contact some type of Tech-Support
You are backing up your blog’s database, right? In the event things go terribly wrong, having your database backed up each night and sent to your email account, is a great safety net.
