Site Update

The site’s been off-line for a few days whilst I upgraded the O/S on my Mac Mini, which hosts this site.  This was from Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) to 10.5 (Leopard).  I tried an in place upgrade first but I didn’t really think it would work as I had customised it quite a lot – it didn’t!So I had to wipe the hard disk and do a fresh install.  At the same time the underlying technologies that support the site have received an upgrade. I’ve moved from PHP 4 to PHP 5.2.4, MySQL 4.1. to 5.0 and from Apache 1.3 to Apache 2.2.6.  This has caused some teething issues which I with deal with in due course.I taken the used the  opportunity to retire the Gallery feature.  This has been replaced by my separate photo site at http://www.phototoe.co.uk.  (It’s still there in the background as it host some of the images on the older posts)
