Well, I’m writing a quick blog post this evening because I’m in the midst of yet another crisis over on my other site, UpbeatRhythms.com, which I thought would be my easiest effort but has turned out instead to be far and away the most troublesome and time consuming of my three sites thus far.
I mentioned the possibility of Drupalizing the place, that sort of petered out when I realized I’d need a college education in computer science to make it work. So I decided to try and max it out wordpress-wise as much as I could. Thinking I’d be all smart about it, I changed my settings around to allow multi-user, multi-blogging, though I have neither multiple users nor the need for multiple blogs. It was just the easiest way, I thought, to allow myself the flexibility to change around the page themes throughout the site.
Hasn’t worked out as planned. I’m getting error messages and it seems unable to accept files or “write” whatever it needs to. Tried to head it off at the pass by directly FTPing my files (any bloggers reading this can understand and sympathize with my plight, I’m sure), and it seems as though my folders are claiming that I’m storing hundreds of gigabites of crap when I know full well all I have is a couple dozen low resolution images in there.
I guess my next step will be to contact the host, again, although I’m not really in the mood and I’m starting to feel like a real moron for not being able to work this stuff out for myself. I guess I got spoiled with Apple products, there just doesn’t seem to be any of these kinds of issues but going to the server and the host and all that is bringing up all kinds of windows nightmares form my former life as a PC user. I am SO glad I gave that all up, now they just have to invent internet hosting the Apple way, somehow.
Or else maybe I’m just a complete idiot. Sure feels that way.
Back to the drawing board. Again.
