Noktah Hitam is revamping his blog theme. I am thinking to do the same too, but I have lousy IT skills so forget about it muahahahaha! Sticking too long to one theme is kinda boring. I love this Black and White theme very much. Simple and neat and customizable really, just me not so good in doing it without messing the whole layout . I am thinking to put up a banner for this blog, see if I know my way around the codes
I edited my old banner* using Paint.
I was shocked yesterday when I cannot access my blog in the evening. At first, I thought the server was down again (damn it! ) so I check Cibol’s and Melbie’s blog because they are using the same hosting provider as mine. Their blogs were accessible!
Then I tried to log in the WordPress admin page and was greeted with a message – ‘The database is outdated. Please update bla bla bla’. Cheebuy! I just upgraded my WordPress to the latest version last week, damn I must did something wrong during the installation?
So I googled here and there, pm-ed few friends.. went to the Cpanel to check the codings (I tak paham sangat pun..) and I messaged Noktah Hitam on Gmail. He was not around to reply at that time, so I continue to do what shits I also had no idea at that time.
Then maybe because of divine intervention, I could access the main page again! Hurray!! Finally!! Wait… I couldn’t access any of the blog entries. I could see only the main page, but when I clicked on the entries, I received another stupid message ‘Page not found bla bla bla’. I keep on trying and clicking like a mad man. Imagine the frustration.. it is like a boxer trying to scratch his itchy balls but he cannot.
End of the story, when I was about to give up (I was thinking, fark it! Just start from scratch again lah! I still have the backup for some entries. ) suddenly all went back to normal. Relieved!! Noktah Hitam replied me in Google Chat then asking what was wrong but I said nothing wrong, everything is good now.
1. I still have no idea what happened.
2. I still have no idea what I did or did not to solve it.
Moral of the story :
1. Do backup of your blog.
2. Do backup of your blog.
3. Do not panic. Wait for few hours, go watch movie, oogle at chicks, grab a coffee what ever then come back and check again. Most of the time this thing happens due to crappyshittysmellyrottenfuckup server problems.
ps: sorry, emoticons overdosed, couldn’t resist.
