Site Outage (No, Not This One, Obviously)
Holy crap. I can only assume that, thanks to all the long overdue love and attention I’ve been spending on this website lately, my other website, Don’t Read the Latin, must have gotten jealous. Because I tried to log on to that site this morning, to look back at the tags on our podcast episode for the Best Horror of 2015 (because I’m doing a similar panel at Crypticon tonight), only to be faced with a page that was completely blank other than this error message:
Warning: require_once(/home/montoure/dontreadthelatin/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/_inc/lib/tracks/client.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /dontreadthelatin/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/class.jetpack-tracks.php on line 6
Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required ‘/home/montoure/dontreadthelatin/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/_inc/lib/tracks/client.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/lib/php:/usr/local/php5/lib/pear’) in /dontreadthelatin/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/class.jetpack-tracks.php on line 6
Fun stuff, huh? And great timing! Since I want to be promoting Don’t Read the Latin at the convention this weekend. But, you know, fuck me, right?
Fortunately, I am an uber leet haxor and am diving straight into the code right now to try and fix this, since I can’t even get to the site’s WordPress admin panel right now.
How’s your morning been?
Update: Crisis averted! Man, I must be slipping — that took me almost ten minutes. Blowing away the malfunctioning plugin took no time at all — I’ll re-install a newer version and figure out what went wrong, but later, not today — but once I had the site back up, it had now developed a major layout problem. Somehow. The right hand column, namely, all the actual site content, was showing up under the left hand column. Not ideal. Took me a few minutes of fussing with the CSS to get things back to looking normal.
In conclusion — DRtL, daddy still loves you, baby, and I promise we’ll spend some quality time together after this weekend, but for right now, please behave, okay?
