Blog Technical Difficulties

Filed under Blogging

Over the past few months I started getting some error messages when I would build my blog. Here is the exact error message:

Error title:
Error 400! - Windows Internet Explorer

Error message:
An internal server error has occurred!
Please try again later.

Most of the pages would build, but some did not. Several category pages and monthly archive pages would not build.

I searched around the internet for help to no avail. I talked with the people hosting my web site (1&1) and they could not help me.

So I tried upgrading my blog software from Movable Type 3.2 to 3.34. The upgrade went smoothly, but the problem persisted.

This morning I decided to create a new MySQL database (which stores all the content of this blog) and then import my old blog entries from the old database.

That worked!

I lost a lot of customization, but gained some new features from the upgrade to 3.34. Over the next few days I'll reapply my customizations so I should be back where I was with a fully functional blog.
