Blog moved to Gentoo Infra

This blog moved from the server hosting www.gentoo-el.org (the website of the Greek Gentoo Community) to the Gentoo Blogs (wordpress multi-user installation). This means that I have one less wordpress installation to maintain yey!! The new URL is http://blogs.gentoo.org/tampakrap/. The old URL (http://blog.tampakrap.gr) and all of its sub-links still work though. This is how I did it:

I exported all my data from the old wp installation, through Tools->Export, in an XML file. In the other side, I created a new blog for my user with the same name. Then, I installed the WP Import plugin, and uploaded that XML. About four or five image URLs were broken, I fixed them manually. Then I installed the WP-Oxygen theme and set up the Akisment/WP-Stats account in the new blog. I had to hardcode the banner URL in the theme as well. If you find anything else broken, please notify me.

In order to have both domains working, I used apache’s mod_proxy without changing anything in bind. Here is the vhost:

<Virtualhost *:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@gentoo-el.org
ServerName blog.tampakrap.gr
ProxyRequests On
ProxyPass / http://blogs.gentoo.org/tampakrap/
</Virtualhost>
