Site reinstalled from backup ...

Darn ! this site got compromised/hacked ... I was too late (much too late) to update Drupal and some guy took advantage of it. 

Anyway, got the backup up and running again, didn't lose too much data. Ahum, actually only one post was lost in the process. I haven't been posting as much as I would have liked to.

But maybe it's time for a change: I minimized my Facebook activity (even deleted the app on my phone). 

Site updated from Drupal 6 to 7

Finally ! after almost a year since the last update from 5 to 6.

Difficulties were the conversion of the old image nodes to the new nodes + image field flavour. Not everything works yet, enough for me to do !

Time flies ! I just noticed that this site is already running on Drupal for 10 years. My user-id on drupal.org is 4945 ... I'm not so active anymore on the Drupal site, but I guess I'm one of the oldie goldies.

I had to delete a lot of content: all the weblinks (most of them pointed to nowhere anyway), photo's of old friends and some other stuff. 

Koorneef.net transferred to shared host

The ageing hardware of my trusty FreeBSD server might collapse any day now. So after some market research I found a shared hosting service to run koorneef.net on. Site5 is situated in the USA, but still is quite responsive in Europe. Site5 uses Linux together with Apache, Mysql and PHP. Not too many changes needed for the switch.

I upgraded Drupal to 4.7.2 (latest release). It went pretty smooth ! I haven't installed all the modules of the previous install yet. The captcha module made it possible to switch on anonymous comment posting and the contact forms again. Visitors will have to type in a few letters from an image to post their comment.
