First Contrib Hour Of 2012

Firstly, Happy New Year to all our friends on the Gregorian calendar like us. We're guessing that's most of you, but perhaps not all.

Contrib Hour Report

Contrib Hour time again! (Well, actually it was yesterday, but we have a bit of a mad rush up to Christmas, so I'll keep it brief.) Alasdair

Piping A File In To MySQL

Our use case here is if you have a lot of data you want to insert in the MySQL - data that you might usually use the Drupal UI for, but there's so much of it you'd rather not if you can help it!

Contrib Hour Report

The roundup of what the Code Enigma team did in their weekly hour of maintaining their contributed Drupal modules.

That time again! Apologies for the dry title, but since this is a weekly event, doesn't seem much point in trying to dream up a snappy headline week in, week out. I guess I'll never be a columnist! So, without further ado, here's what the team did today:

Deployment Tools In Toulouse

Supporting information for the talk we gave at Drupalcamp Toulouse

A big thank you to everyone who joined the DrupalCamp Toulouse English track for my opening session, and I hope it was useful. Also, special thanks to Miguel Jacq for his input, both to the talk and to our systems in general.

Node references and relationships

Using Views to manipulate connections between content.

This is the first of a set of blogs that could be called quick (and sometimes dirty) solutions to everyday problems.  The plan is to provide examples and code snippets from actual projects as they come up.  In this first one, I'll look at a couple of examples of how to use views to manipulate nod

How Code Enigma does hosting

A look behind the scenes at our specially developed hosting system.

We'd been talking since we started trading (almost exactly a year ago, as it happens) about setting up something that would smooth our deployment process and allow us to offer solid, professional hosting to our clients.

When To Use Drupal

Just because we've chosen to specialise in the Drupal CMS as our main tool - that doesn't mean we recommend hitting every nail with it.

I'd like to start by quoting Jeff Goldblum's character from the 1993 blockbuster Jurassic Park, Dr. Ian Malcolm, when he says to Richard Attenborough's park owner character, John Hammond:

More for your money

As technology advances, what you can get for your money takes great leaps forward.

I've just been tidying up the website for one of my previous employers and it got me thinking about how the price of stuff has changed in the last fifteen years.

Look, Drupal 7!

This is now my first Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrade. Not without hitches, but all in all not too painful. Hope you like the new look.

Updating From Fedora 12 To Fedora 13

Step by step guide on how I went about updating Fedora 12 to 13

Fedora 12 "end of life" just came around, so I decided to update to Fedora 13 while things were quiet over Christmas. Fedora ships with a preupgrade app which manages the update process, so in theory this should do it: su -c "preupgrade"

Security Releases Don't Work

Wow, long lapse in posts there. Sorry folks. On with the show: Here's the problem. The Drupal security team do a fine job, following up on reports, auditing contributed modules with a point release to check for security weaknesses, working on core. It's all good, except for one thing:
