BerkeleyLUG site/WordPress migrated!

The BerkeleyLUG site:
has been migrated from WordPress.com hosting, to
being hosted on the BALUG host (virtual machine).
Things should mostly be as they were - differences should mostly be
cosmetic (and speed/availability - not a high availability host nor
hosting, nor high bandwidth).

The old site content may temporarily be accessible at:
but looks like that's presently still redirecting - so
can't (yet) see there to compare, etc.

If you have an account on the site, you should be able to use
the "lost password" functionality:
to get an emailed link to reset your password (passwords were not

Shorter term we'll probably leave it relatively locked down,
most notably only those with accounts can comment or post or more.
We'll probably start loosening that up more (within reason)
after things are a bit more settled in and tested out (and we
activate some anti-spam bits).

And, ... what did the migration process look like?
There's a pretty good outline of it here:

So, ... not quite done yet 8-O ... I was theoretically to be
done/completed by 2019-08-27T09:53:17Z[1]
But getting fairly close :-)
In "worst case" scenario, I could always migrate/"promote"
what I've got so far.
One may "preview" it here (not the permanent URL, and that (sub-)domain
will get removed in the relatively near future):
Some of the more notably various remaining issues:
The import causes everything to be attributed to (authored by) one user,
... well, at least pages, looks like comments may have their proper
original attributions.  Theoretically on import, one should be able
to (re)map users from import to users on site being imported too,
but I don't seem to have gotten that to work or work fully.
Comments aren't displaying who posted the comment.
Missing the tux logo being displayed on page headers.
I need to properly configure email sends (it semi-works
at present, but may very legitimately get rejected by mail
servers that are persnickety about spam and proper sending best

"per earlier communcations, intending to migrate of the WordPress.com
hosted by 2019-08-27T09:53:17Z (that would be 6 months after
Michael Paoli was notified of having been granted admin access for the
BerkeleyLUG site on its WordPress.com hosting)."
