I’ve finished setting up this beginning…

As I indicated in my personal blog, this blog is one of two on the FKE Internet VPS account that use the same code base.  I’ve already found one difficulty – this configuration doesn’t support separate .htaccess files for each blog/domain – but for the moment, it doesn’t seem to be a major issue.  My biggest concern was that I wanted separate databases for each project, and to use different themes and options – and that all works pretty well “out of the box” – so I don’t have any major issues.

Now I’ve got to move on to the next immediate task – setting up a Drupal-based Web site…

    I did experiment with Drupal-based sites, but then I discovered that doing an upgrade (which needs to happen frequently because of security issues, database changes, and other Drupalisms) is a horror show: The entire system has to be shut down, the databases archived and reset during the update, the data restored – and then the site can come back up. That sounds like a totally infeasible operating plan for a site that has more than a couple of users – so I removed Drupal from the server to close the security holes it had opened.
