The not-very-much-used-by-me Posterous is going offline on April 30th 2013, roughly 12 months after its acquisition by Twitter. I had a few on-and-off posts there, and I guess it would sort of be a shame to loose them, so this is an attempted replacement. The Posterous blog is copied here: http://sjy.yearl.us/sjy/posterous/blog.yearl.us/ … that was a simple
but I thought I’d also try and group these pages into WordPress itself a lá http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/import-from-posterous/
Of course setting up WordPress was a breeze.
- Set up a blank MySQL database with an admin user
- Then on the server with the webserver (in my case Apacehe2)
tar xzf latest.tar.gz
mv * ..
rm -rf wordpress
mv wp-config-sample.php wp-config.php
Setting the login details of the MySQL database. And that is that. Went on into install the Suffusion theme for WordPress (because although I do not intend to style this, my wife’s gluten-free cooking blog uses Suffusion) and the CodeColorer plugin.
