shifted stuff to wordpress

Abandoning Elgg for the following reasons:

1. It’s very clunky.
2. It took me an hour to figure out how to do something that should be trivial.
3. Every time I go looking to find out why something’s broken, I find more bugs.

It still is sluggish, but see

I’ve disabled the explodeping module, we’ll see if this goes any faster now.

mod_auth_cas built

This’ll need (a) configuring, and (b) integrating with Elgg. At the moment, it’s simply available to apache instances.

… at the moment, it’ll claim to be from me. This uses the php.ini in the mod-php/conf directory, which means that it can be done separately from the tomcat/Quercus- hosted instance.

“You’ve forgotten your password” etc. stuff looks like it works.

I’ve opened up the top-level apache instance a bit to let users on the 12 subnet see this (although I’ve not advertised it at all).

It seems to me to be very sluggish. I’ve not turned on any PHP speedups; looks like they’ll be necessary, however.
