So, search when I thought “Lets move to stage two, migrate the site to a WordPress CMS”, I figured it would be fairly simple.
LOL, NO! Nothing is ever that simple. The host would not update PHP/MySQL because the ability to run WordPress was a “paid extra”. OK, fine.
I mean seriously. Bitch, please. You tell me, a fucking hacker, that I cannot run WordPress on my own account because you want me to PAY for updates?
“So, how long did it take to make WordPress run?”
2 minutes. I basically patched wp-content/version.php to accept MY versions of PHP/MySQL instead of the hard coded minimums. It then worked.
Then came the challenge of lrn2wordpress. Themes, etc. Or rather, remembering why the fuck I installed it in the first place…
Anyways, gotta migrate content…
