1. many years of playing about with MySql Databses meant that I roughly understood how to rehash a saved dump file to relaod a new database and then rehash the config files and reupload missing data.
2. I did a mega save only last week, so there wasn’t that much lost – Phew!
I think you’ll find everything is back in working order on shoo-tube.com now.
I thought I would do a bit on online housekeeping this morning and oops! I’ve deleted my Drawing School Database! Not a brilliant idea. Luckily I have quite a recent backup, but it was for the whole database including the schema. The database doesn’t like that, so I’ve had to go into text edit, strip out the schema data and all the other bits that aren’t needed. It’s taking forever to reimport. I hope it works, otherwise that’s a year’s work down the drain!
Phew! I’m shattered! I found I had a day and half free in my schedule as I’d not been sent artwork layouts for the weekend, so I’ve really gone for the new website change over in a big way. This blog will now become more of a drawing blog and my homepage, www.shoorayner.com, will become my main blog, so I suppose I’ll have to change my feed to Facebook etc.
I reckon that a blog is the way to go for a home page. I’ve hummed and ha-ed about it for years, but I’ve finally made the decision. I’ve been developing it on a local server for weeks. Transferring to a web server is a bit of a nightmare, I’ve been going through the database hand-coding bits that got missed and I think it’s all working now.
Have a look and why not sign up for my newsletter? You’ll be in the monthly draw to win a signed copy of one of my books. While you’re at it, why not subscribe to my youtube drawing school for another chance?
