Drupal 7 BlogApi

Submitted by bas on Thu, 27/06/2013 - 22:33

I’m back at testing the Drupal BlogApi. The XMLRPC blogapi used to be a core module in Drupal 6. But in Drupal 7 this module has been moved to contrib (ie, it’s no longer part of the Drupal core). But… the contrib module has been in an unstable state for some years now. Enter the Alternative Blogapi contrib module. It sounds daft to have 2 blog api modules in contrib (and it is). But at least this alternative is working (sort of).

Redis + Drupal @ Byte webhosting

For Amsterdam based hosting provider Byte I've written a short dutch tutorial on how to configure Redis cache on a Drupal 7 site on their hosting platform. Below the gist:


Hosting provider Byte heeft sinds kort een cache service in beta draaien. Deze service, Redis, serveert cache direct uit geheugen en is daarom veel sneller dan de Drupal native file cache of database cache methodes. Redis is te vergelijken met andere cache backends zoals memcache of apc.
