Last night I set up a test micro instance called cartwheel on EC2 to be sure we run okay in that config. It's the one that Amazon is offering free for one year. Even though I won't get it for free, it's worth having one up and running so I can help people with their installations.
Phil Ulrich reports a problem with installing worldOutline.root on his new server.
Following the howto for setting up the worldOutline server software, the link to the domain-setting page was broken, so I rewrote the paragraph to help you navigate there. That's even better because I can mention some important concepts and get you looking at the prefs system for the OPML Editor. Important if you want to get a feel for running a server.
I defined a CNAME for my editorial work, cartwheel.worldoutline.org.
Also turned off caching. If you see any problems at all in using the worldoutline software, I suggest turning this off. I'm thinking about removing the feature, at least temporarily because the recent reorg probably broke stuff in there.
And that's quite true! It took me to the domain name I defined for editorial access, but I have never logged in using that address. So I don't have the cookie in the browser, and it's good that it didn't allow me access. But, it's bad that it didn't offer me a chance to log in. Now the question is -- why?
I just had the page redirect to the signin page when you don't have the cookie, and the signin page redirects to the roots page when you correctly signin. Excellent.
On the server bring worldOutline.root to the front and choose Update Front Tool from the Tools menu.
