    The forum was down today because I was feeling frisky and updated the Linux install. Unfortunately, the (quite sophisticated) update process didn't notice all the php addons that we use to make this site run, and so it didn't install any of them. After about 2 hours of panic, I finally got the right bits in the right places.

    I hope. If you see anything that looks wonky, please let me know.

    Yeah, no. I really expect their upgrade scripts to be a bit more robust than that. It's not all that unusual that people would have installed add-ons, especially for typical code like apache and python (which was also broken). I'll be a bit more wary the next time I think about updating.
