How to install SVK on Dreamhost posted

Posted in , Fri, 11 Aug 2006 01:50:00 GMT

I just posted my Installing SVK on Dreamhost notes on the wiki. I wasn't able to find any information on installing SVK, or Subversion with its Perl bindings for that matter, on Dreamhost so I took the time to work through it and document it (mostly because I believe SVK is essential to running a modded Typo). The end result looks pretty straight-forward but it was a reasonably time consuming process to backtrack all the errors, nail them down and find out if they are worth worrying about. In the end, the test failures weren't important but I wasn't willing to trust the SVK/SVN install without knowing for sure.

I was eager to get SVK up and running because it seems to be the popular way to keep one's private changes up to sync with a public repo. This is especially important for my Typo install as I have numerous Typo mods that I want automatically merged with new versions of Typo. Just recently we've had Typo 4.0.0, 4.0.1 and 4.0.2. I've been reluctant to make so many changes due to the manual merging I do now. Edge Typo and SVK, here I come!

Apparently Site5 doesn't come with SVK either so you can try to use this there. TextDrive, however, does come with SVK pre-installed. to install SVK on Dreamhost posted digg:How to install SVK on Dreamhost posted reddit:How to install SVK on Dreamhost posted spurl:How to install SVK on Dreamhost posted wists:How to install SVK on Dreamhost posted simpy:How to install SVK on Dreamhost posted newsvine:How to install SVK on Dreamhost posted blinklist:How to install SVK on Dreamhost posted furl:How to install SVK on Dreamhost posted fark:How to install SVK on Dreamhost posted blogmarks:How to install SVK on Dreamhost posted Y!:How to install SVK on Dreamhost posted smarking:How to install SVK on Dreamhost posted magnolia:How to install SVK on Dreamhost posted segnalo:How to install SVK on Dreamhost posted

Dreamhost and DNS hosting

Posted in Tue, 01 Aug 2006 08:56:00 GMT

If you are hosting at Dreamhost, you are better off letting Dreamhost host the DNS for your domain as well. This is because Dreamhost can change the IP of your server without notifying you. They will update their own DNS servers when this happens but this won't help if you if your DNS is being hosted elsewhere. Use their nameservers and you should be all set.

Sometimes when the DNS is pointing to the incorrect IP, you'll see the following error:

Site Temporarily Unavailable

We apologize for the inconvenience. Please contact the webmaster/ tech support immediately to have them rectify this.

Planet Engines: Plagger and Planet

Posted in , , Mon, 31 Jul 2006 04:16:00 GMT

Planet engines are applications that aggregate RSS/Atom feeds and generate composite feeds as well as a website. The generated feeds typically include RSS, Atom, FOAF and OPML. Two popular open source planet engines are Planet and Plagger. I've used both to create planet-style websites and here are my observations:
