By Dsv (Own work) Public domain, via Wikimedia CommonsFor the last few years, my DNS server of choice (when I run my own) is PowerDNS. It is very simple to use, and the ability to run multiple “backends” makes it wonderfully configurable. My choice setup is PowerDNS running the MySQL backend. Of course the question is “How do I manage the MySQL backend?” and that is where PDNSOps comes in.
Serendipity to WordPress – Post import
June 11, 2010
The first thing you need to do in migrating from Serendipity to WordPress, is to move the post content. Luckily for all of us, at some point in time an importer was written (and shared). It has floated around the internet for a while and been updated a number of times. The version I used was verison 1.3, last updated by a German fellow. While his updates were good, I needed a little more out of it. Two pieces that were lacking were the handling of drafts vs published posts (John and I have a number of drafts, as has been previously mentioned) and the most important, matching up post id numbers. Without that one piece, you can’t move between the two platforms and maintain any links.
