there were some permissions issues with the database, and some more permissions stuff that i need to fix later, but the server is back up and the website is fully functional again.
tonight i’m going to upgrade to feisty and then the real work begins.
i still need to fix:
chmod permissions for www stuff
set up ftp and users
finally get the mailserver running
finally get ssh running
finally get mpd/icecast running
if anyone’s interested in seeing the post-mortem blog, you can find those notes here.
