Developing WordPress Total Child Theme in Docker

First significant challenge is that archive pages aren’t working. Am I missing a setting somewhere? Figured I would install the Base-Lite demo, but server kept timing out. Need to increase limits in the container: Add this uploads.ini file in top level of WP in host computer. file_uploads = On memory_limit = 64M upload_max_filesize = 64M … Continued

Installing 12 year old php script on Ubuntu

This is a temporary measure. Old server went away and we needed at least a virtual private server. Installing MySQL and Apache were a couple of apt-get commands. This codebase only runs on php5.x, which isn’t supported anymore. So needed to add this new apt repository which supports legacy php versions. Found this install solution: … Continued

Installing Python 3.7 on Linode Server

This has been fun. I installed a “bleeding edge” version of Python (3.7) on the server we’re running Glitch on and it’s been ah… fun? Forget what exactly I did, but one of the mistakes with “symlinking” the new python version. It was a mess. Ended up restoring a backup and starting over. It’s been … Continued

Porting from Echonest with Amen

While poking around in Vamp Plugins, I decided to make another quick internet search and found a new replacement for EchoNest Remix! It’s called Amen, after the ubiquitous Amen Break. Back to holes in our codebase left by Echonest. File “fore/”, line 41, in render_track track2 = audio.LocalAudioFile(‘instrumentals/’+file2) Start the server again: sudo python -m … Continued
