Back from the garbage


Lessons learned:

  • Digitalocean or another cloud hosting service is the way to go, unless you don’t want to learn how servers work, in which case you’ll get ripped off.
  • Following from the above, you can’t know for sure you’re safe enough from hacking, unless you have backend control.  If you don’t, again, you’ll get ripped off.
  • A proper backup procedure is necessary.  Restoring from an SQL dump was painful.

Not expecting everything to work and i need to remember what all my plugins were, but it’s serviceable now.
