Man that was rough!

I applied the (unreleased) Xaraya 0.901beta to the site and poof! The site dissapeared!

And of course only after this happens, did I look at the messages gathering in my inbox that said quite clearly that there are still some issues with the unreleased package on sourceforge… ah well, you know what they say: to every cloud there’s a silver lining!

I deleted everything, dropped the database, and installed the very latest “pull” direct from the repository, restored only the categories and articles tables, tinckered some more with the settings etc, and now finally we’re back online….

I promise (once again!) that I’ll try the updates on a test site first, and then apply them to live sites only when I’m sure… I promise (once again!) that I’ll try the updates on a test site first, and then apply them to live sites only when I’m sure… I promise (once again!) that I’ll try the updates on a test site first, and then apply them to live sites only when I’m sure… I promise (once again!) that I’ll try the updates on a test site first, and then apply them to live sites only when I’m sure… I promise (once again!) that I’ll try the updates on a test site first, and then apply them to live sites only when I’m sure… I promise (once again!) that I’ll try the updates on a test site first, and then apply them to live sites only when I’m sure…

but then, where the hell fun in that?

hehehe 😀

Outgrown *nuke? Come to the next era!

this is a comment I entered at http://www.dinerminor.com and I thought I would reproduce it here. I hope John doesn’t mind!

I’m sure a lot of people join me in congratulating Team Xaraya on the release of the first public beta of Xaraya, but why should they?

Is it just a new toy to play with? Another piece of code to complain about? Another piece of software that forces you to become a software developer, engineer, visionary just to publish the articles that you want to publish the way you want them published? In short, I see Xaraya as the natural next step in content management platforms. Unlike its predecessors, it is deep, intuitive, and full featured.

No longer does the publisher (rather than the webmaster) has to be completely familar with several technologies. With simple configuration options available in Xaraya, one finally could remove oneself from worrying about technicalities and concentrate on publishing content… which incedentally what we all got into this game for in the first place.

Just set up Xaraya how you want it once, and then just worry about your content, content, content and never worry about if a permission is actually going to work consistantly, or if a module is going to be incompatible with the core!

Thank you Team Xaraya for this release, and we look forward to 1. I think if we just stop here, at 0.9 this is a major milestone as it answers most if not all of the needs of those frustrated *nuke webmasters!
