Its a self hosted blog, rather than using Github Pages because its not really a programming blog, so it felt a bit cheeky to use it. Plus its always “fun” to setup stuff, learning about using a post-receive hook to build the site after making a change to the blog’s git repo.
Why the changes? Well my dedicated server at Online.net died a number of months ago, and I never got around to properly restoring it to how it was. This is me finally doing that, and making some other changes at the same time.
I know that no-one really reads my blog, I post so infrequently and its not exactly riviting content, but getting the site up and running again, plus getting my wiki back up was bugging me :)
As an aside I lost a little data, basically my wiki which had a lot of server config stuff, because the default install of Dokuwiki puts the data off in /var/lib/dokuwiki/data and when I was backing up the main dokuwiki directory I apparently didn’t have the setting to follow symlinks on.
