Possible glitchiness later; WordPress update

Today I got the email that Dreamhost is turning off our PHP version one week from today. It is allegedly possible to run a custom PHP version on Dreamhost, so that’s what I’m going to try to do tonight.

When I attempt to switch us to the custom PHP installation, the site may break to a small or large degree, or possibly not at all. If it breaks a lot, I’ll switch it back quickly. If it breaks a little, I may leave it and try to iron out wrinkles. If it breaks not at all, wonderful!

If it breaks a lot and I can’t fix it… it’s going to be a long weekend.

Even if this works perfectly right away, I don’t consider this a tenable long-term solution, so plans to switch to WordPress will continue apace. I am taking the second week of June off work, and I plan to have the WordPress site ready for at least a trial-run meta-dynasty by June 15.
