I don’t know what happened, but this web site as well as several others I run were all broken the past couple days. Apparently, the hosting provider had some kind of failure. They’re back, except for my podcast site, and seem to be intact.
The podcast page is the worst off, though. Of course, that’s the one that’s really important to me. Somehow, a lot of the files that are part of the WordPress software that runs the blog, are gone. Thankfully, the Gallery seems to be all there. (I’d hate to restore that from my backups.)
The posts should be safe. They are in a database on a different server. If everything works right, I should just be able to reinstall WordPress and it should take off where it was. But in the meanwhile, I pointed the wnypodcast.com domain to the podcast host, Libsyn. The podcasts are accessible, but I can’t work on the main page, because it redirects to the Libsyn page and I can’t see what it is doing!
I’ve created an alternate domain for the podcast, so I can get to it, but it takes a while to set up. It’s going to be a long process, I can see.
