I have released version one of my WordPress Auto Install Script for cPanel.
This script can be run from /scripts/postwwwacct to automatically download, install WordPress and create the required database and database username.
No 3rd party licenses, scripts, FTP sessions. No outdated versions, always grabs the latest version from WordPress.org
I recently started a project for a customer, if it’s CubeCart, WordPress or BackPress based, its a fairly good bet I’ll be using ADOdb – but not any more! I though I’d try PEAR’s MDB2. Its just another database abstraction library, but takes a slightly different approach to live. I quite like it.
Sometimes, yum freaks out. You might get your installation interrupted or some crazy happening which your installed package database goes crazy with duplicate packages or broken dependencies. There is one tool which helps a lot in tracing the problem and its called package-cleanup. This tool is provided by the yum-utils package, so to acquire it,
yum install yum-utils
Several common commands I usually use:
package-cleanup –dupes # list out duplicates package-cleanup –cleandupes # clean up duplicates package-cleanup –problems # list out packages with broken dependencies
Patrick Altoft has updated the Crawl Rate Tracker Plugin for WordPress 2.5. A previous post of mine documents the plugin has major issues creating its database table on WordPress 2.5, unfortunately, it would report success causing many sites to throw some major, undetectable errors.
WordPress Suicide is a fun, yet really useful plugin. I had a requirement to clean out a WP 2.5 blog because a client had really screwed up with the taxonomy directly in the database. I didn’t want to erase the entire blog because that’d be too easy. I stumbled over WordPress Suicide and had great fun using it. It makes clearing a blog of all it’s life quite enjoyable!
