CMS Report - Keyword: website administration

  • Slow to post...

    Unfortunately, I'm a little under the weather with some type of cold bug. So if you're wondering why I've been slow to post "featured stories", now you know. I also found being sick and installing a CMS don't mix. I tried installing the latest development version of Drupal at drupal6.cmsreport.com...only to find out I installed it here at cmsreport.com. Luckily, I was able to quickly restore the site. Either way, this sucks...

  • CMSReport.com: Text editor, Advertisement

    I'm in the middle of switching the text editor on CMS Report from FCKeditor to TinyMCE. Both are fine WYSIWYG editors, but I have seen some problems lately so this is a good time to try something different. The text editor is available to those who have open a free account here at CMS Report. The CSS in the Drupal theme I'm using isn't quite compatible with the TinyMCE editor so I'll be doing some tweaking in the next week or so. During the past few months, I've been getting inquiries…

    My apologies, we're having problem with comments not fully being saved.  I'll work on it when time allows, but I have higher priorities today.  Like going with my family to the downtown art fair.

  • cPanel 11: Newest version of the control panel coming soon

    When I originally started hosting my own sites on a server (VPS/VDS), I opted for the easy way to manage those sites by using an online control panel. I originally started with Plesk but eventually moved to cPanel. cPanel at the time seemed to be the control panel everyone was talking about. However, I quickly found that although I liked cPanel it seemed to be dated by the fact that its primary web server support was for Apache 1.x. Support for Apache 2.x was promised in the next version of…

  • A Drupal book for the Drupal Developer Wannabe

    What seems like a very long time since I first heard about and ordered the new Drupal book, Pro Drupal Development, it finally arrived at my doorstep. So far, I have only read Chapter 1, "How Drupal Works", and glanced at the remaining pages of the book but I'm very impressed. The book is written in a very easy, well organized, and informative writing style. This book is perfect for people like me and most of you, the Drupal Developer Wannabe. I'm no dummy and have written Web pages since…

    As we mentioned earlier, phpBB.com was down due to drive failures on their RAID system.  Late Sunday evening, phpBB.com not only brought their site back online, but also redesigned their site.  An announcement was posted in phpBB's forum explaining the details.

  • 2bits: Drupal core caching and contributed content caching modules

    2bits is spending a lot of time lately discussing how best to manage a high traffic Drupal site.  This particular article on Drupal's built-in caching caught my attention.As a site grows, the overhead of executing so many queries per page against the database starts to add up. This is where caching can benefit a high traffic site. Drupal core caching Caching stores "elements" in a cache table in the database, so the data can be retrieved by a single query, rather that constructing the page from…

  • Bèr Kessels: HOWTO turn Drupal into an authenticate-only site with users from an LDAP directory.

    Authentication for a content management system through  LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is a big thing at the enterprise level.  LDAP is especially a big thing for larger organizations where they have lots of people and lots of accounts to manage over lots of locations.  Since my own workplace is just now branching out to using LDAP for something else besides e-mail, this post from Drupal's Bèr Kessels is very timely.  Even non-Drupal users interested in CMS and LDAP services…
