Trellis, round 2

Decided to try again, but with a Debian/Ubuntu-based system. Found a VM of an essentially clean install of Mint 18 Xfce on my main PC, decided to go with that. Made sure it was updated and created a Snapshot. Installed the prereqs via apt. Ended up with versions: Ansible 2.1.1.0 (req >= 2.2) Virtualbox 5.0.32 (req […]

Trellis

I’ve been using EasyEngine to set up WordPress for a while. I found it after struggling to get a MultiUser WordPress site installed the way I wanted.

Remove internal AHCI/SATA from the Safely Remove on Windows 10

Hello 2015!

Ok, figured it out: Made a WordPress multisite now, with subdirs under blogs.gundersons.us using EE. Had some issues at first, trying to run EE after I had already gotten a single WordPress blog up & running, so I took a Snapshot (free right now since they are apparently in beta) and blew it away, started […]

Hello Vultr!

I spun up a VPS on Vultr over the Holiday Closure (where legally permissible). I was previously using Digital Ocean but Vultr has a Seattle datacenter, which is decidedly closer than the Bay Area. I imported old blog posts to the new WordPress install, but I’m not really sure how I’m gonna split stuff up […]

Use the same profile for multiple Portable Firefox versions

A few weeks ago, the latest version of Firefox was released and it [yet again] killed one of the extensions I rely on. So I uninstalled that one and went to the latest ESR (v24) on my main PC and all was well. I did, however, have to tell some kids to pull their pants […]
