Watch out Fantastico Script Installer here comes BitNami

I haven’t tried this yet, but if this is true and works very well, this could definitely alleviate some of the problems that are caused by the Fantastico script installer. I’m excited to try this out since I’ve been meaning to play around Joomla in the near future.

Here’s the full report via MakeUseOf:

BitNami makes it easier to download and install Open Source software packages (i.e. WordPress, SugarCRM, Drupal, phpBB…) by bundling each package into preconfigured 1-click setup file. No need to deal with configuration settings or dependencies. Just download a package you need, run installation wizard, and that’s it. Once done, you will have a fully-functional and configured copy on your system.

“The BitNami Project was created to help spread the adoption of freely available, high quality Open Source web applications.”

New and Updated WordPress Plugins and Great WordPress Posts

wordpress Well, finally the WordPress 2.3 craze has died down. It’s been awhile since I’ve read about anyone upgrading or complaining about errors for WordPress 2.3. I guess that means anyone who upgraded… either it worked and they didn’t complain or it didn’t work, they complained and downgraded. It’s been about a week since my last WordPress post, so there’s a lot to take in. 30 New WordPress plugins

New and Updated WordPress Plugins and More on WordPress 2.3

wordpress So, I officially upgraded several of my blogs, not this one, to WordPress 2.3. All I did was deactivate the plugins, upload the files and hit the upgrade.php link. All went smoothly, surprisingly. However, the other blogs were relatively low key and low weight, so I’m still hesitating on the upgrade here.

Also, let’s give a hearty congratulations to Lester Chan (GamerZ) for updating all of his plugins to WordPress 2.3 Compatibility.

Here’s a Long list of New and Updated plugins, as always, don’t forget to check against any of your plugins against the WordPress community 2.3 Plugin Compatibility List before upgrading.. The plugins below “should” all be compatible, but check the community list for a double check.

2 Updates for my Blog – WordPress Category and Full Text Feed

wordpress First, I’ve created a WordPress Category in hopes that it would make my readers lives a little easier to find all that is WordPress that I have written about.

I have also installed the Full Text Feed Plugin (WordPress 2.3 Compatible), I figured, in the ever continuing battle of full versus read more feeds, money is not my main goal, blogging is, so why would I make you go through the hassle of going to my web page every time you like a post… If you don’t like the full text feeds, feel free to comment here…

WordPress 2.3 is Here – Posts and Plugins

wordpress WordPress 2.3

WordPress 2.3 is here. As I said previously, I’m going to wait on the WordPress 2.3 Upgrade. Now that it’s out there are a few confirmed failed upgrades out there. There was little time in between the RC1 and the Final release. The release itself appeared to have come later in the evening on the release date. Thankfully, there have been some massive movements to get everything up to speed. Also, I’m thankful to the GetK2 bunch for updating the K2 Theme to RC1 and WordPress 2.3 ready.

Below are posts, plugins and more all relating to 2.3…
