As I had more and more issues on the old, dated 3.3.1 WordPress installation on my housing box in some German DC, this weekend I finally took the time and upgraded. Both to 3.7.1 and into the clouds …
This will serve as the first test post on the new aws.blogdoch.net instance in AWS’ free usage tier. I eventually plan to move back to my good old bare metal server, but for now, and since I’ve to deal with clouds full time during office hours anyway, I intend to keep this thing running in “the cloud”.
While being at it, I removed a lot of plugins that weren’t properly working anyway, as time permits – and updated plugins exists – I’ll intend to bring back some functionality lost, so stay tuned ;)
If things do work out as expected, i. e. blogdoch.net is back in a state that I actually can post there again, I most likely will post more frequently.
