Do not attribute to malice what can more accurately be explained as the obvious ramifications of having so eagerly invited an antisocial teenage hacker to reboot our very concept of friendship.

Had my host switch my primary domain from an old goofy fandom domain to kimberlyhirsh.com, all in anticipation of moving to Reclaim Hosting. Now kimberlyhirsh.com isn't resolving but my registrar & host are 2 diff companies, so I'm hoping it's just a resolution thing that will be fixed in 24 - 48 hrs.

[jgmac1106]
did you change the cname where you registered the domains to point to Reclaim's servers....nvm you didn't move yet but still same thing go to your register and edit the cname to point to your host server
#
[kimberlyhirsh]
cname or a?
#
[kimberlyhirsh]
Registrar is pointing to host's nameservers.
#
[kimberlyhirsh]
Nameservers don't appear to be resolving.
#
[kimberlyhirsh]
Registrar points to host nameservers, host zone file is pointing domain to IP address.
#
[kimberlyhirsh]
The error I'm getting is ERR_NAME_RESOLUTION_FAILED
#
[kimberlyhirsh]
This old host has been pretty garbage for a while though, and part of me wants to just give up on it, start the new Reclaim account, and start over...
#
[snarfed]
oof. unrelated, but [kimberlyhirsh] just fyi reclaim is blocking many indieweb services, including bridgy and webmention.io, in case that matters to your migration choice. details in #indieweb-dev
#
[kimberlyhirsh]
Okay, thanks.
#
[kimberlyhirsh]
Might want to find a different host then. Current one doesn't let me do micropub.
#
[snarfed]
really? that's surprising. micropub is just HTTP POSTs
#
[kimberlyhirsh]
Yeah, I can't remember the details anymore but I hassled them about getting some rewrite rules whitelisted and in the end even though they claimed to have whitelisted all the ones that were problems, it still wasn't working.
#
[kimberlyhirsh]
In any case, I think I have everything I need to do a manual WordPress migration if this all doesn't work out but what a hassle.

[jgmac1106]
Yeah I am looking into switching now too...just don't know if I can afford another host...

micropub is "just HTTP POSTs" but also usually requires Authorization HTTP header, which some hosts block.
#
[snarfed]
very true. GWG has spent lots of time debugging that
#
[schmarty]
that's dev chat tho

I assume that's good 🙂

#

I did but I was more interested in the article itself.

Okay, after playing with Zone Editor for a bit, looks like kimberlyhirsh.com is back online. Thanks for the help, [jgmac1106]
#
[kimberlyhirsh]
Getting some server errors though, more troubleshooting to do
#
[kimberlyhirsh]
I suspect it's related to wp-config

Question for Vouch implementers: How many of you have your websites trust https://hash-for-vouch.herokuapp.com/ as a vouch source?
#
jacky
I haven't seen this before
[grantcodes], wolftune and [schmarty] joined the channel
#
[schmarty]
"vouch implementers" is a very small number of people.

#
[schmarty]
i don't think any trust that hash-for-vouch site.
