Migration to WordPress Complete

Just migrated my blog to wordpress – actually using the ‘WordPress Appliance’ from http://www.turnkeylinux.org/wordpress.  Didn’t come without a hiccup or two, especially when I tried to migrate the database to another server and change the table prefix.

Now I just have to rinse & repeat for the other blogs we host.  Sorry MangoBlog – Just not enough of a theme selection.. and really, that’s the only reason.

Sorry to Ray and everyone that reads http://www.coldfusionbloggers.org/.  It seems a few of my entries got reposted.

On a side-note, here’s my url rewrite rules to act like MangoBlog (just added two).  The Permalink setting is just /%postname%.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^feeds/rss.cfm$ /feed/ [NC,L,R]
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteRule ^post\.cfm$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]


  1. Yeah, WordPress rocks! I gave up on MovableType and the open source Melody, which seems to have stalled (Perl . . . who uses Perl???), and moved over to WordPress for my knitting blog. I was surprised at how easy it was to set up, and all the fabulous plugins that you can get.
