I finally did it. After how many false and less-than-true starts, I’m publishing content related to me! A number of these previous iterations had been either standalone HTML/CSS/JS creations or a handful of Drupal 7/8 installs that stalled out. Turns out that good old WordPress seemed to be the fastest way to get posting. Customizations, Material Design revamps, groovy plugins are somewhere down the road, but first things first, content.
These are little notes to myself, filed under “TILT” (Things I Learned Today). I intend to keep ’em coming.
The following links were invaluable in prepping the deployment environment and getting this site up and running in very short order:
The Composer and phpMyAdmin links aren’t as germane to this particular deployment, but they’re great references for other applications, namely Mautic.
Addendum: in order for pretty paths to work, not only does the .htaccess file have the proper permissions to be written by the server, the Apache .config has to specify AllowOverride All (n00b error of not having the correct path resulted in /headdesk for a goodly while).
