My hosting company isn’t all that bad. I’m the idiot that didn’t read the manual that accompanies Movable Type. My hosting company upgraded the Berkley Databases (or so it seems) and I didn’t read the manual’s “troubleshooting” section on that.
I’m an idiot. IntuitiveISP, my host, actually helped me a lot with their latest upgrade of servers (a lot more than they had to help including troubleshooting all of my other client’s sites and telling me how to make them work better… something I think most hosts wouldn’t do) This new box that my site is on is faster, more secure, and actually has a lot more new ‘features’. I’m quite please now with the upgrade, but wasn’t on Wednesday when I posted my note about inluminent being fuxored.
All that being said, Ben Trott is the guy that deserves the credit for inluminent/weblog’s new life. You see, there’s a little section in the MT user manual on what to do when you can’t login to your MT interface. The problem is fixed with a simple command line prompt.
Ben was nice enough to point it out to me, instead of simply saying “RTFM” which I might have been inclined to say to a user considering the stress I’ve been under this week. Thanks for the feedback Ben. And thanks to IntuitiveISP for all of the help with my other client’s sites… couldn’t have done it without you.
The pic’s for you Intuitive guys, you know who you are…
