Wordpress Auto Upgrade and SFTP

June 30, 2009, 5:40 a.m. security , subversion , Wordpress

Wordpress added a nice feature a while back - the ability to upgrade your installation while logged into the admin console. If you make use of this feature you no longer need to mess around with downloading zip file, deleting the old stuff, loading the upgrade.php script etc etc. The same system can ...

Updating this, Updating that

June 23, 2009, 7:20 a.m. subversion , Wordpress

During the last few weeks, moving from Fedora 10 to 11 took up rather too much of my time, energy and space on this blog. But that's not the only thing that I have been updating. This blog is powered by wordpress and recently they released version 2.8 and naturally it has to be updated too. They hav ...

Graphical Subversion

June 2, 2009, 7:08 a.m. Collaboration , netbeans , Python , subversion

Trying out different graphical subversion clients the first one that I tested was rapidsvn. Seems like a pretty decent tool but it had one shortcoming - it will not allow me to enter an unversioned directory. If you are like me, when you go off on a tangent you probably create a few things in a dire ...

Hard Drive Failure.

Sept. 17, 2008, 9:25 a.m. subversion , toast

On monday, returned home to find my computer wasn't responding, straight away I reckoned that something bad had happened. I was right - a hard drive had managed to get itself toaster. It was actuallly the partition table that had been lost. I am no stranger to partition table losses, it had happened ...

Netbeans 6

Oct. 24, 2007, 2:24 a.m. subversion

Been using Netbeans 6 for a couple of days and I am beginning to like it quite a lot. When moving from Netbeans 5 to 5.5, the projects had to be upgraded but you don't need to do that when moving from 5.5 to 6. It will use the existing project as it is.The most exciting feature about the new version ...

Subversion FAQ

April 15, 2005, 12:19 a.m. subversion

As the subversion documentation says, a good FAQ is a list of questions people might actually ask and not a list of questions some none geek marketeer dreamt up. These are some questions and answers based on my own experience. Oops, I entered the wrong text when commiting my changes how do I chang ...

svn: malformed file

Feb. 10, 2005, 7:42 p.m. subversion , CVS

Subversion is tricksy. It waits until you have been lulled into a false sense of security to spring a surpise on you. When that suprise is sprung, google does not have any answers.Having used subversion for a while and made 400 commits, I decided the time was right to figure out if the subversion re ...

Subversion tricks

Dec. 29, 2004, 12:51 a.m. subversion

Subversion continues to dig up new tricks from dark recesses up it's sleeve to befuddle the unwary. I ran into another one of these after refactoring some java code.Some classes that had been placed in a package named com.raditha.colors were moved to com.raditha.ui since the old name was inappropria ...

Subversion

Oct. 25, 2004, 9:13 a.m. cvs , rcs , subversion

Many moons ago, I downloaded subversion because I had messed up the CVS installation on my computer (not that I was making much use of it anyway) and wanted to try something different. Finally I had a chance to install it.One of my worst habits is downloading a software and leaving it to rot in some ...

Getting Started With Subversion

May 21, 2004, 11:29 p.m. rcs , subversion

In the process of working with the Info Dancer maildir implementation, I contacted it's author Mathew Hunter and discussed making a contribution (code not financial).I came to learn the he is using subverson for source control instead of CVS. It just so happens I had totally corrupted some of my cvs ...
