Note to self, don’t neglect a server for that long!
My decision to perform a years worth of updates didn’t really work out very well when mixed with the decision to update PHP. The result was a lot of undesirable behaviour.
Annoyingly after doing so, I was using a project to check that everything was still running whilst completely forgetting that said project was hosted elsewhere… (Awkward).
Anyway, after a few hours and a little patience, everything’s now running on a shiny new instance and performing pleasantly. Let’s keep it that way!
