Site recovery

Busy sysadmin week. The main FOAF site is back, now hosted on Amazon EC2. Thanks to¬†Stephane Corlosquet for all the time he spent fixing up the Drupal installation, after the recent server compromise. I’ve also moved over danbri.org (well, DNS is propagating), and migrated my blog into a completely fresh WordPress installation. The FOAF namespace site and Subversion server are safe, and not yet migrated to new hosting. Various documents from danbri.org are still offline while I scrub all the HTML, .js, .php etc for mischief. The old rdfweb.org site is also offline. I’d rather move slowly and carefully than mess up this process. This is a test post from the new WordPress to see if it works. Note that I’ve stripped all plugins and addons and will be much more conservative with trying extensions in the future. In particular, OpenID-based commenting isn’t working right now, but it’s on the todo list. One of the most disconcerting things about being hacked is when the site is also your OpenID. I’m wondering how to better partition things in the future; perhaps using id.danbri.org might give some more options?
