motd.org sites have been migrated to another server, hopefully for better performance. I found this as my DNS client was still pointing to the old one triggering certificate issues in the browser.
Pros: This site does not intend to collect or monetize information about its users. Comments are turned off, content upload is disabled and membership is closed. There should not be any cookies set as that is not necessary for normal browsing. There is no use of any plug-ins or ads that make access information available […]
Motd.org server has been upgraded to PHP 7.4.7 and the admins are setting up more finely tuned access permissions. That means I should be able to post again, but first some testing!
Server keeps crashing on access, a reload usually works. This is basically the same for most (all, https only??) sites hosted on motd.org. On server error, a php.core dump is generated in the root directory of the site.
SSL server certificate has been issued by Let’s Encrypt and automagically set up by motd.org (kudos to the admins). I have adjusted the wordpress settings to transition from http to https.
Added first µEMACS page. WordPress capitalizes top page names when adding them to page menu (µEMACS => MEMACS). Need to investigate wordpress themes and menu settings. Issue fixed by switching theme 20-12 => 20-10.
User creation was quite straightforward, but managing to log as a user was really a challenge. Not sure why the login page keeps being made unavailable. Nevertheless, once logged, posting is easy.
