Mass sleeping. Headache. drips. Time for some Travist.
As I hang out drinking orange juice I fired up MediaWiki @ badubadu.com, www.badubadu.com/wiki which will save some time. Updated the home page to list this blog and the wiki... that and sshfs from google and publishing is easy.
The "old systems" at hurricane electric are using older versions of PHP and MySQL, as you may expect. MediaWiki 1.6.10 did the trick. I patched the deployment with http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Page_access_restriction which, after some confusion on my part seems to be working well.
The SSL configuration on these older machines is a bit awkward; there is one SSL cert for the entire machine, and so you have to use a machine specific URL.
some email from the office, and then back to bed.
