This time last year, I installed, configured and wrote a small PHP application using Zend Server Community Edition. My hope was to limit the enormous overhead in creating a robust PHP project by taking advantage of the Zend Framework. I had the same hopes this year, but once again find myself disappointed in the product.
It is the same issues I ran into last year. Namely, the documentation is often vague and has errors in it that are just misleading enough to throw me off track for hours at a time. I ran into other minor technical issues such as the libmysqlclient.so library not being the correct version and apparently no way to update it short of major technical surgery. The product does generally work as advertised, but I am going to hold off on using it for the time being. Perhaps next year, the team that maintains the community edition will have made the necessary organizational shifts that will enable robust crowd-sourced documentation maintained by a community of developers.
I have updated my start page to use CSSPIE to enable rounded corners in IE. I also uploaded a new screenshot and the zip of the latest files.
Every once in a while my development server loses power and the MongoDB daemon doesn't get the chance to remove the mongod.lock file, so I modified the startup script to remove it prior to any attempt to start mongod. It is easy and may be done by adding one line to the startup script.
If you have your data files stored in a custom location, just change the path to match.
I have updated My Start Page with a updated version of my personal, custom start page with upgrades to modernizr, boilerplate code and some link updates. I have updated the screenshot, the live, online link, and the packaged zip of all the files in case you would like to make it your own.
I have changed my home (landing) page and moved my resume one page down in the left side menu. I placed my business card, front riser and back riser images until I have a chance to add some other material.
I added my new logo by Chad Hall to my resume. It symbolizes chaos into order.
I updated my photo on my resume page.
