If you need to move your wordpress site, like we just did, follow this link from WordPress Codex to find out how: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress
We ended up making 2 moves, one to a new subdomain on an different hosting provider and 2nd one to a subfolder within the new host and officially off of the root. In both cases, the directions given here worked!
Just place this code anywhere inside your <input> tag:
onFocus="if (this.value=='Search') this.value='';" onblur="if (this.value=='') this.value='Search';"
Notice I highlighted the word “Search” – this is the only part of the code that you need to edit. Change “Search” to match the default value of your text field.
What do these statements mean?
In the end, your input code will look something like this:
<input name="s" type="text" id="s" value="Search" onFocus="if (this.value=='Search') this.value='';" onblur="if (this.value=='') this.value='Search';" />
Want to try it out? Just check out our search field at the top of the sidebar.
So you have subversion (SVN for short), and the built-in dreamweaver support for SVN sucks, now what? TortoiseSVN of course, the best open source SVN client available. But Mike, “I don’t want to have to go to a separate program to check in and out my files!”…. That’s where Subweaver comes into play. It brings the Tortoise SVN menu commands directly into Dreamweaver through an extension. Here’s the installation instructions along with links originally found here:
That’s pretty much it. Also, if you’re in a windows environment and you’re looking for a super simple installation of Subversion, take a look here at the VisualSVN Server. The standard version is free, but even the added features of the enterprise one only costs $500. It’s a very simple installation and gets you up and running with Subversion within 10 minutes.

Sometimes you run into issues and within 10 minutes the internet comes thorough by giving you a solution with no reasoning as to why your having the issue, but you’re just happy to have it and will chalk that one up to the good guys! Just ran into this one while working on our IIS server and certificate authority: 0×80094801 – the request contains no certificate template information
“The solution is to import the Certificate Request in command line with CertReq tool. Use the following command to import your Certificate Request file.
certreq -submit -attrib “CertificateTemplate:WebServer” <Cert Request.req>
If the template is different, find the correct template name in “Certificate Authority” console. If you don’t find it, you may have to add the template before you try importing the request file.”
No name, no person to give credit to, but thanks!!!
Found a need for a reverse proxy. What is that you ask??? A regular proxy server or “forward proxy” can be used to forward HTTP traffic from a network’s clients to external web servers on the Internet. The proxy can also cache popular sites to save on bandwidth also, so all CNN.com’s images would be loaded once and everyone who visits the page afterwards can use images off the local proxy server instead of downloading off the internet.
A reverse proxy would allow you to have 1 IP address and multiple webservers behind it. According to Wikipedia :”A reverse proxy is a proxy server that is installed in a server network. Typically, reverse proxies are used in front of Web servers. All connections coming from the Internet addressed to one of the Web servers are routed through the proxy server, which may either deal with the request itself or pass the request wholly or partially to the main web servers.”
At LW, with our virtual environment, we’re able to setup multiple test boxes for all our different client environments, but right now we still have 1 IP address, thus the need for a reverse proxy. Searching the internet for something that works properly and is inexpensive, I found that IIS has a module called Application Request Routing (ARR) and URL rewriting which when combined give you the reverse proxy functionality. To download the modules, you can find them here: ARR, URL rewriter
here’s the basic steps in IIS 7 to setup which were found here:
“For a very simple reverse proxy, all you have to do is:
1. Select the server node on inetmgr.
2. Double click on Application Request Routing icon.
3. Select/check “Enable proxy”.
4. Select/check “Use URL Rewrite to inspect incoming requests.
5. Enter the server of where you want to route the request to in “Reverse proxy” – ie. (myserver.contoso.com).
In above example, all requests that are received by ARR will be routed to myserver.contoso.com.”
There’s also a great video walkthrough by Ruslan Yakushev(his accent is pretty thick) that really shows you how to use the modules properly, it’s located here
