Reconsider Columbus Day

OK enough is enough. Reconsider Columbus Day is another campaign to right the wrongs of history. Currently Columbus Day to most folks is really just another day to go to the mall and shop. Here in the US we need to ban all holidays or Holy Days as a matter of separating church and state. If we all can just learn to live for the future and escape our past we will all be happy living in a world free of resentment and pent up anger over history. Why not have everyday be a celebration for humanity? Why not stop creating the wrong history today and start creating the right future now?

Wormley Image Archive is finally back online

I have moved my image archive from the hosted site on Site Ground to my own server.  The Wormley Archive is an experiment on for me learning about web technologies.  I was testing the hosed services on Site Ground to see if it was worth the extra expense of running my own servers.  It took about two years for me to reach the limit of what Site Ground offers.  I knew that I would find the limit to hosted services and I did.  site ground offered unlimited storage so I copied all my 22 GB of images to their servers.  I found out that the unlimited storage did not include muitimedia files and Site Ground consideres JPG files multi media.  I also reached the PHP memory limit on their shared hosted server/  They wanted me to use a private hosted server for more money.  I decided to move my site to my own server.

An Apache problem that threw me for a loop

I have been installing Apache on servers for a long time, ever since version 1.3 back in 1990.  I have installed Drupal a number of times.  I have never been stumped by not getting a index.php file to work.  I will cut to the chase and tell you that I found the solution here.  The error that I was getting was:



(13)Permission denied: access to /index.php denied



I could get phpinfo.php to work and index.html to work but not index.php.



This is the command that worked.



chcon -R -h -t httpd_sys_content_t /var/www/html/



I got the Drupal set up wizard to start.  It took me off and on about three days to find a solution.
