Over the weekend my hosting provider moved this site to a new server. There haven’t been any major problems, but you may need to restart your RSS reader for it to pick up the new IP. My contact form stopped working for a while, and there was a problem with comments, but everything should be working properly now. If anything seems broken, please let me know.
I did have an additional problem, and I thought I’d write about it in case someone else runs into the same trouble. MT-Blacklist stopped working after the move, which of course is not a good thing since it made me more vulnerable to comment spam.
When I tried running MT-Blacklist, I got this error:
An error occurred: Byte order is not compatible at ../../lib/Storable.pm (autosplit into ../../lib/auto/Storable/thaw.al) line 363, at [path to MT directory]/lib/MT/PluginData.pm line 28
I’m running Movabletype 2.65, with no immediate plans to upgrade – I don’t have time for the inevitable breakage that will be caused by upgrading. I’m using the latest version (1.6.5) of MT-Blacklist available for MT 2.65, and Perl is version 5.8.5.
I was going to ask if anyone knew what to do about it, but I found the answer myself: MT-Blacklist Error : Byte order is not compatible. You need to delete all records in the
mt_plugindata table. Just in case it happens to someone else.
Oh and by the way: my hosting provider is Coolhost. Check them out if you need an excellent host, especially if you’re in Sweden.
Update: Seems like there still is a problem related to comments. I don’t get email notifications of all new comments, only some. Weird.
There are both full text and summaries feeds to choose from now. Sorry for messing around with the feeds.
