SSH and VIM

Well a little while ago I asked for SSH access to my website and forgot about it.

As anyone can see my website does not get updated often.  I feel it must being hacked as bluehost my host company sent me an email telling me I am taking up too much space on the SQL server.  I don’t think I am using much…

With this issue was a good time to try to learn some SSH.  So I learned puttygen and putty.  I found that my unix command line skills are lacking… however I was able to set up VIM to a reasonable level.  So I can do most of my vim-ish things.  Yes I know it is weird to be a VIM/dos hack not a VIM/unix hack… maybe my mac can switch me.

Lots of things to learn

I do a lot to learn. I was trying very hard to figure out why I can’t goto swardle.com and it doesn’t just redirect me to www.swardle.com/blog.

I tried:

  1. .htaccessto do a redirect.
  2. Create a default.html or index.html so I could at least have a link to my blog.

It turns out .htaccess was correct I just had to flush my web browsers cache.

I have setup lots of toys and spent most of the day on it. Wikis and blogs and joomla oh my.
