Random: And it’s the end of migration! (once again)

Whew, all done. Goodbye Focushub, hello Poznet.

I had to copy/paste the SQL statement in batches and it (finally) looks like everything is done.

Things to note for migrating WordPress blog to a new webhost with same domain name:

  • Do an SQL dump of each database manually – each database = if you have a lot of WordPress platforms, otherwise it’s one database.
  • FTP the entirety of your files to a local drive on your computer – very important.
  • Create the subdomains on your new webhost as required.
  • FTP all the files to your new webhost.
  • Create the MySQL databases manually on the new webhost, and use the same usernames/passwords as what was specified on the wp-config.php file.
  • Upload the SQL dump back onto your new webhost.

One thing screwed up big time though; for some reason all the Chinese characters were screwed so goodbye all my old Chinese posts! I reckon I can’t be fcuked to restore ’em.

Will be back to update after I take a few days off on this.

Birthdays: keinday 2008

(Exactly two months after the day, I’m finally writing this post heh heh.)

It was a pretty normal day actually, ‘cept for the fact that I had two birthday cakes.

One at the office:

Yum, tiramisu from Breadtop. And that’s the colleagues. Thanks to Davina, Bill, Keith & Benny for the cake and birthday card!

One at home:

The assortment of food that everyone (excluding yours truly) prepared:

List of dishes:

  • baked potatoes by Honda
  • stir-fried veggies by LS
  • oven baked chicken wings by V
  • steamed egg by Nick
  • stir-fried luncheon meat with bean sprouts by LS/ZM
  • IKEA meatballs by LS/ZM

Amazing spread of food, really. Especially when you took into account the fact that we had only seven people at the dinner table.

Thanks to ZM, Honda, Nick, LS, May and V for the dinner!

Video taken by Nick, quality is crap because I compressed it into MP4 (original AVI was approx 250MB = fail).

Incase you haven’t been looking at the updates on my Twitter, you can actually see bigger versions of the pictures by clicking on them.


Long list of thanks to the other great people for their birthday wishes, hopefully I haven’t missed anyone out this year.
