Matt Farina: Drupal for Churches. There is a series of podcast on how to use Drupal on church websites, and by just looking at the episode list it looks pretty interesting! I am downloading them now :) FOCUS website is still running on an old Drupal 4.7 code-base but I have not had anytime working [...]
Drupal 5.0 released after 8 months of development. When I blogged about WordPress’ maintanence release this morning, I was thinking, since both WP 2.1 and Drupal 5 are in released candicates, I wonder which one will go gold first. I think no more guess is needed now :) There has been massive changes since Drupal [...]
Dries Buytaert compared different web server and PHP set up for a Drupal powered site. It turns out Apache2 + mod_php4 + APC cache is actually the fastest configuration. However, pre-fork with APC cache on each apache process can use quite a lot of memory as well, if the site has been hit hard. Personally [...]
Dries Buytaert, the head mocho of Drupal the PHP-based content management system, talked about software backward compatibility, and how it crosses Drupal’s core value. He left the dilemma for everyone to pounder. But what to do if many of your users slowly force you to change one of your core values? It seems inevitable that [...]
Drupal 4.7.0 has been released by their great development team, and I actually just spotted when I went there trying to find a module for FOCUS church website. FOCUS still runs 4.6 (which was released more than a year ago), but I have also started a new site that has been running 4.7 release candidate [...]
Stephan Esser from Hardened-PHP has reported yet another vulnerability in the XML-RPC library depended by many open source projects, and Drupal, the publishing platform that powers FOCUS church website, released security updates for their 4.6.x and 4.5.x branches.
It has been under my todo list for at least a year, and the development has gone through multiple iterations of trial, error and completely re-work. Yesterday morning I have finally decided to switch our church website, FOCUS-UNSW.org, from my old home-build content management system to the new Drupal based site. Not just switching the [...]
Drupal, an open source PHP-based content management system, has its web site gone down last week, due to shared server getting hacked. It asked the community for $3,000 donation so they can buy a dedicate server, but subsequently has raised $10,000! Moreover, Sun Microsystem has donated a dual-Opteron Sun Fire. Plus the three Dell Linux [...]
blogs4God, the Christian blogging directory, is going to move from MovableType to Drupal, Mean Dean announced. Drupal is really good for community blogging. Great platform and efficient clean code. The new FOCUS website will be based on Drupal as well. Can’t wait to see the new b4G.
Drupal is releasing their latest and greatest, which is 4.6.0 at the moment. This is great, especially after I’ve spent my afternoon setting up a site using the old 4.5.2 version. D’oh. This always happens.
