Re: Linux as a target? But is this really the case?

A Linux server with (apparently unpatched) wordpress interface. OK it's WORDPRESS and not Linux, if you think about it...

(this is why I like using rsync with SSH key login on a mirror directory for web stuff, which you could test locally and maintain using source control and only update with official 'merge' builds if you have at least some discipline in your team)

I think the rent-a-server I have for the company domain has wordpress capability, but you have to enable it. Guess what I will not be enabling...
