“500 (Internal Server) Error
…that Go Daddy is furiously working to correct.”
It’s been a long time coming, but Go Daddy finally forced my hand by upgrading my dasBlog install to death.
(FYI: Go Daddy no longer has web or email support – chat or phone only. Because people don’t want options.)
The phone rep at least got me to a useful error and told me they finally moved off IIS6 (Windows 2003?!). When I figured out dasBlog can’t run on IIS7 (why not 8??) without a rebuild, it was obviously time.
SO, here I am rebuilding into WordPress. Content is in, but no skin and many links are broken. Sorry for the mess :T But onward!
Other than some rough design edges, I’m done! Thanks to Reeves Little‘s tremendous how-to Migrating from Dasblog to WordPress, and Bob Craven‘s illustrated supplement Hello WordPress, Good Bye dasBlog, it was quite straightforward.
And to be fair, the Wordpress world has great addins for absolutely everything I’d’ve otherwise Macguyvered together: importing, HTTP redirection, link checking, contact forms (and those are just migration-related). I’ve built a lot of WordPress sites for other folks, but now the cobbler’s child finally has shoes too!
