What I Learned Yesterday

8 June 2004

Yesterday and last night were spent working with web servers, domain names, MySql databases, user names, passwords and lots and lots of subdirectories. At midnight last night, none of it worked.

Beginning again very early this morning, I got some help. Now it works and I’m too weary to do what I set out to do in the first place. After all the trial-and-error work, I’ve now got to go back and document everything so that the next time I try to get into this, I’m not faced with similar setbacks from the outset. I have no idea what changes ultimately made the stuff work together.

Were I to have to start from scratch right now, I’d probably go through the whole thing again. What did I learn yesterday? Absolutely nothing.
