Blog issues. Or GraffitiCMS issues. Or GoDaddy issues.

Apologies to all if you saw a whole bunch of posts appearing and disappearing in the past hour. I’m having – all of a sudden – extreme problems with publishing a blog post from Windows Live Writer to this blog, which is hosted on GoDaddy. This first happened on November 5, but I thought it was a transient issue and ignored it. And then over the weekend I wrote the “adding parentheses” post but it would not publish, no matter what. I finally published it just now with...

Solution for ASP.NET routing on GoDaddy shared hosting

photo © 2009 Caitlin Childs | more info (via: Wylio ) I was doing a bit of research to try and find some nuggets of information on URL rewriting, especially with regard to GoDaddy’s shared hosting (I run this website (and others) on GoDaddy). I found this article in Google’s cache but the original site (codebeater.com) has gone away (I presume the domain wasn’t renewed). The article was by CodeBeater’s admin. I didn’t want it to disappear into the ether as I can certainly see me using it in the future...

IIS and ASP.NET 404 redirects and GoDaddy

So, last night I was working on my URL shortening website (jmbk.nl) and the application that generates the short URLs and that redirects existing ones to the actual URLs. And for some unknown reason, the redirections just weren’t working on the actual website. I’d get server errors (even “404-Not Found” server errors) and my redirection ASPX page just didn’t seem to get called. It was, to be polite, a mess. And, because it was late at night and I was tired I was flailing around trying stupid stuff...

Backing up SQL Server database with GoDaddy

Nearly two weeks ago, I converted this site to use SQL Server as the database engine. Without a doubt, having the database on another server separate from the main web server has helped the speed of this site dramatically, so much so that I've added features like the "top five most popular posts" gadget to the first sidebar and "other similar posts" to each blog post (when they're displayed on their own). The only problem that I've had is that my backups of the site have reduced...

Converting GraffitiCMS from VistaDB to SQL Server on GoDaddy

Is that SEO-specific enough, do you think? Heh. Anyway, here's the situation. I started this blog using GraffitiCMS about a year ago, previously having used static web pages created with CityDesk . All my sites are hosted on GoDaddy : I went with a Deluxe hosting option which means I can host pretty much as many sites as I want to in the same single folder tree. At the time — can't remember why — I decided to stick with the default VistaDB as the database instead of opting to...

Losing Permissions with GoDaddy

I noticed this a couple of weeks ago, but couldn't pin it down to anything. All of a sudden, the Graffiti application used to run this blog suddenly stopped working, throwing up its generic error page. After a little bit of investigation why, I found out that the write permissions on the blog root folder had been cleared. So I set them back, and promptly forgot about it. Well, it happened again yesterday afternoon and the only thing that I had done with regard to my website configuration was to create...
