I have been using wordpress for a while and recently installed a new server. Rather than move all my old data to the new server, I created a whole new blog. My base os is CentOS5. I've had some glitches, and with this new server, I'd like to get them ironed out as I have an expectant of 5 years on this new server.
I have two blogs on my server. blog1.domain.ca and blog2.domain.ca. I have been trying to get the autoupdate and plugin features working properly right from the start, but I am having some problems with that.
I'm not sure what permissions I should have for /var/www/blog1 and /var/www/blog2. I have created two users on my server and set their home login folders to /var/www/blog1 and /var/www/blog2. I am getting an error with a particular plugin php-recent-topics whereas it says I do not have permissions to edit the config page for that plugin.
I don't have a problem reinstalling both blogs from scratch, as there is no content there to speak of yet. I'm wondering if I should have performed some particular steps to get this working better.
I also have phpBB3 on both blogs, as I want a little place for forums for certain things as well. I have created two databases, one for each blog, and then added the phpBB3 to each blogs database.
Can anyone offer some recommendations on how I should proceed with this? Should I have two user accounts on the system, one for each blog to make updates and installation of plugins and stuff easier? This is my own personal home server, and I have full access to it.
