Now Also on App Engine

If you can see this, then the migration of the site from to App Engine Standard worked. This was more complex than the equivalent migration of due to the subdirectory and static files.

I still need to repoint the DNS. So far I notice one bug. works but doesn’t. Probably need to fix a handler in app.yaml.

I also need to reinstall the various plugins.

Meanwhile I need to check that media uploads work:

And they don’t. OK, one more thing to fix before go-live. One more time:

Wow. That was painful. It took multiple months to figure out how to make that work. The specific problem proved to be a result of bad cookie paths when uploading since this blog is served from a subdirectory instead of the root. I thought it might be that since didn’t have this problem. Still it seemed really strange. The specific fix was adding this line to wp-config.php:

define('COOKIEPATH', '/');

I also needed to log out and back in again before the change was picked up.

Meanwhile all other legacy images broke, perhaps because they’re served over http on what is now an https site?
