am trying out some modules to speed up our drupal site. i’ve streamlined it as much as possible to remove anything even remotely not necessary and using core as much as possible. now trying out xautoload and next week possibly db_maintenance to see if there are any performance gains.
just when i thought i would never have to do another migration and i got the server set up all nice, wouldn’t you know it — the university is making me move the site! sigh… after some trials, it looks ok though… whew!
just enabled http2 on our work site… not sure if it’s really going to be faster with drupal but i’m hopeful. at least switching from mpm prefork to worker will be a benefit.
got stuck with a yucky job at work but a side benefit was working with some xml that had a really interesting structure and some cool data… it was fun circling down through all of the branches
and to watching panda-cam
finished the theme redesign, hurray! i couldn’t wait to stop messing around with stylesheets, which was totally giving me cts — and get back to what really matters, sleeping and playing some bigfishgames! i mean, if you’re doing to wreck your health by over-doing it on the computer, you should at least enjoy it
was messing around today with the drupal shib_auth module, trying to see what it might take to port it to drupal 8 (although i think i’ll just wait or use simplesamlphp instead) but i had no idea until i started how different drupal 8 is… i’ve just glanced at it in the past and there are things like the system table information in now stored in sites/default/files/php, which kind of threw me. i know it’s just a matter of getting used to it but…
i’ve always said i hate stylesheets… and i do, definitely!
so because of a serious lack of server space at work, i’ve been testing out how to set up a multi-site on a drupal and i can’t believe how easy it is!
took a little bit to get used to the idea (felt like i was in a house of mirrors) but it should save so much time… will have to see how it pans out when in production but so far, so good!
