Webkeeping

It’s a lazy Saturday on Literary Lane, so I’m going to spend it troubleshooting

(art by KC Green)

. Time for stream of consciousness post!

Things that are causing problems – and these are all on the backend:

  • HTTP errors when uploading photos that are under 2MB – AGAIN
  • >> it’s not the php.ini file OR the captcha that LunarPages installed.

  • A WordPress error file that’s going batshit crazy
  • SERIOUSLY crazy. This is written every time I access the site:

    [04-Feb-2017 09:40:09 America/Los_Angeles] PHP Warning: Module ‘suhosin’ already loaded in Unknown on line 0
    [04-Feb-2017 09:40:09 America/Los_Angeles] PHP Warning: Module ‘PDO’ already loaded in Unknown on line 0
    [04-Feb-2017 09:40:09 America/Los_Angeles] PHP Warning: Module ‘pdo_sqlite’ already loaded in Unknown on line 0
    [04-Feb-2017 09:40:09 America/Los_Angeles] PHP Warning: Module ‘imagick’ already loaded in Unknown on line 0
    [04-Feb-2017 09:40:09 America/Los_Angeles] PHP Warning: Module ‘pdo_mysql’ already loaded in Unknown on line

    Even with all plugins deactivated. Sweet merciful crap. PHP always just …worked.

  • WordPress post.php hangs. The posts do post, but I never move back to the Dashboard unless I refresh the page.
  • > It’s not the theme.
    >>It COULD be a plugin OR THE gigantic error file.
    >>Reverted back to Canvas theme. Error file is up to 65KB in just an hour. Troubleshooting the PHP issue might fix this.

    And I’m sure I’ll find countless other things. To start debugging, I’ve turned off the addons that post to Facebook and Twitter, and switched to a default WordPress theme.

    At worst, I may just obliterate this directory and do a fresh install of WordPress. I should just START with that. 🙂

    Apologies to RSS peeps. Here we go!

    Five years!

    Five years!

    Today is my FIVE YEAR anniversary at TNP, which really isn’t The New Place at all anymore. Not so shabby for someone who thought she’d be fired before her first year was done.

    It’s a good place to work, and has allowed me to travel to new places and learn new things. I’m doing great things with Excel, and I’m even doing a bit of SQL work on our database!

    (I also received $300 in gift cards, which will be put aside for future travel.)

    In unrelated news, I’m 23 days through the Yoga with Adriene 31-day #yogarevolution and with the exception of the angry, angry muscle in my upper back that I tweaked, I’m doing really well!

    Facepalming

    I didn’t vote for Donald Trump. It wasn’t just a party thing — I usually hop all over the place with voting* or a woman thing, although that would have been fantastic to see. I voted for the more experienced candidate, the one with the better resume.

    (obvs this is posed)

    Current mood: despondent.


    AAAND she lost. I should have known when I laughed at Trump verbally slaughtering the Republican candidates one by one that he would have been a bigger threat. But I wrote him off as a joke. And although he received fewer popular votes, he won the system as we have had it set up for hundreds of years.

    I see many, many people claiming that he’s not their president. And although I have facepalmed so much these last few weeks that I feel the topography of my face flattening I have to say this: he is my president.

    I take a train each morning to work. And on most days, the operator is the same guy. But if someone else happens to be chosen to operate that train, I can’t say, “Nope. Not my train operator.” Because I am literally on that train and that guy is literally operating it. And most important: I want him to be responsible for properly driving the train with me on it.

    I feel as if when we say Trump’s not our president, we are washing our hands of him. Instead, we need to hold his feet to the fire. Listen, mister…you are MY president, and here’s a list of things you need to do.

    I will continue to facepalm for the rest of today. But starting tomorrow, I intend on figuring out what comes next.

    * Clinton, Clinton, Bush, Kerry, McCain, Obama, Clinton. I’m also still a registered Libertarian. I’m a hot mess.
