Finally, my website is online. Or maybe back online would be a better term. For the past week or so, I’ve been spending my spare time getting this domain and my website online, setting up this WordPress installation, designing the theme, and transferring old data on to it from my previous host, which was one of my own computers. Finally having decided to go with a paid, hosted solution, I can say this takes a burden off my back, and with hosting and domain registration being fairly cheap nowadays, it doesn’t really put a dent in my student-sized wallet either. So, without further ado, welcome to unitstep.net, the home of Peter Chng!

The current setup is running WordPress on a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) setup hosted by Site5. I chose WordPress because firstly, it’s a great blogging platform, and secondly, it’s written in PHP, which I’m familiar with, so tinkering with it should be easier for me. Thus, customization, which I love to do, shouldn’t be all that hard, and I should get a good return on any investment in time I spend in tweaking WordPress. Building this site should be a fun learning experience, though I should probably also learn look more into Linux and Apache, which haven already been taken care of for me, but that’s for another day.

The current theme I’m using (and have designed) for WordPress is still undergoing changes as I tweak it to my liking, and as always, comments are appreciated. You may also notice changes as I slowly port relevant posts from my previous setup(s) to this new platform, so you may find a few backposts that pre-date this welcome. Do not be surprised.

Lastly, I hope you find something interesting here to read, and if not, it’s still a great place for me to collect my thoughts.
