The Site and Other Updates

Ok, so the site is back up.  That was incredibly easy.  As far as I can tell, there was 0 downtime.  The only thing that may have looked strange is that I didn’t have the most current database on the dreamhost server.  But, a simply backup and restore fixed that.  Also, aaron spruit (.com) is up and running on the new host also.  I realized that the two databases could really cause headaches if I didn’t do them both now, especially if I added an entry on both sites.  I’ve updated my registrar with the new name servers, but since that takes awhile to propagate, I updated my current names servers to use the new hosted site, instead of the other one.  That way everyone hits the new site right away, instead of some going one place and others going to another place.

In other news, now that I have this running under Apache, I’m going to start playing with the .htaccess file.  What I’m hoping to accomplish is to get rid of all the extraneous crap on the URLs to this site.  Therefore, if you are reading this through RSS, the feed may go down.  Just come visit the site and grab the new URL of it.  It will probably end up being https://www.rebelpeon.com/rss_2.0/ though, instead of https://www.rebelpeon.com/index.php?/rebelpeon/rss_2.0/.  This should also help with search sites too, since they tend to have a hard time with the URL Query Strings.
