Nearly three years ago, I broke my website.
The old site was an open source project that was built in CodeIgniter which
I have zero experience with. It made use of the old
mysql extension which was
removed in PHP 7.0. But there were other projects that I wanted/needed to host
on the same server (It's a physical machine in my living room) and I wanted to
use the new hotness!
I knew that I'd need to update, replace or rebuild my site. I elected not to change the old code in any way. I wasn't familiar enough with it (I didn't even know it was CodeIgniter at the time).
I expected it would take me a few weeks to rebuild and migrate the old articles.
but I'm a lazy sack and forgot to care...
3 years later, I've launched the MVP of the new site. It's very basic, but it has enough for me to do what I need it to do while I continue working on it.
Besides, It's far better than the placeholder that I was using.
