Upgrade of server

That was a traumatic few hours – I have just upgraded the little old server that provides all these pages to a nice new shiny Ubuntu LAMP distribution. It was previously running a very old distro of RedHat, with apache 1 and very old MySQL and PHP, and the time had come to move to a new infrastructure – not least because Claire, who is developing the museum database had said that she would not do any more work on it until I upgraded to a version of MySQL that actually supported relational integrity.

Well I’ve done that now, and she has no excuse, and neither do I in the future, as Ubuntu is very easy to keep up to date.

If you do find anything that is not quite working as it should, then please let me know and I’ll try to fix it. It should be fairly transparent to the average user though – but it does leave me in a better position to upgrade WordPress and Gallery at some time in the near(ish) future.
