Finally this blog is running on WordPress on a new host.
For the past one month, the ritual was to get up, finish the morning ablutions and mail my previous host – AN Hosting – to start the mySQL database which ran varnam. They would promptly do magic and the server would be up; but they needed reminders.
After realizing that there are better things to do in life, varnam was moved to a new host over the weekend and in the process migrated to WP. Lot of fixes still have to be done; for example, few of the old links don’t work, a blogroll has to be added and we have to go plugin crazy. All in due time.
Here are some resources for moving from MT to WP.
