I’ve moved this domain over to my nginx based server. Took a bit of fiddling but everything seems to be in order.
I’ve used nginx as a proxy before but never as frontend. Ditching Apache (well, Litespeed) has been an experience but I’m mostly pleased with the results. Doing without .htaccess files is the only real issue. I did have a major issue with my main site/forum but that was mostly due to the permissions on a folder. php-fpm wasn’t happy with me about that.
So I’ve finally left behind CPanel and Litespeed. I’ve used Linode to create my own server (twice!) and now I just need to move frosti.org and ishallnotcare.org over.
Because of all the excitement with servers I’ve not done much work with phpFan but intend on getting back to it as soon as I can. Getting it to work with nginx should be a snap.
It’s going to be one of the scariest things I’ve done in years, far more than college (which I’m going back to for Spring!) and getting my BA, but I’m going to see if I can do some sort of rehabilitation programs and work. I know that seems really easy but it hasn’t been for me. I need to get out of this house, out of this room, out of this chair. I’ve been stagnant on the job front and pretty much have been since I finished with the pharmacy tech clinicals.
I’ve been mainly working on my main website and there have been a number of changes. I changed my hosting from Wiredtree (excellent host, I do recommend them) to Linode and basically created my own server without CPanel, the usual suspect. It’s been a real learning experience and I’ve worked so much through the command line that I sometimes got sick of it. I’m far from good at it but it’s been fun and it’s been a change.
I’ve also started work on phpFan 4, which has almost all new code aside from the basic functions. There are going to be several new modules and instead of making phpFan and the fanlisting mangagement script separate like I first imagined I’ve been combining them.
On the mental health front I’ve had some setbacks but have always bounced back to a better level of functioning, which to most people would not be saying much but to me it means the world. My sister had a big seizure — not the typical sort, something that I’m only giving that name because I’m not sure of a proper term for it — that lasted two hours. My mom says she was moving so violently she thought her head was going to come off. It’s been an uphill battle towards getting well again for her and she’s had to take leave from school. She’s still not free of the seizure activity. She’s been a real inspiration to me, makes me want to do better with my own health.
