- Received an account on linux 2 to install my own local installation of devmo wiki for testing.
- Problem: After checking out the wiki source from devmo, I used sancus's devmo configuration file to get this running, but it kept redirecting to his installation for some reason. Browsing the setting files, etc. didn't reveal any solution.
- Solution: sancus and shaver suggested using a hostname instead of a user directory link (ie. /~melz). Strangely, that fixed it. A mystery.

- Checked out devmo's css files (it was in a different path) and moved it so that everything loads up properly.
- Everything looks great so I'm getting my own dump of devmo's wiki contents instead of pointing to sancus's installation
- Problem: Had issues getting 'mysqlimport' to populate my database.
- Solution: Ended up using just 'mysql' and the errors stopped. 'mysqlimport' seems more picky for some reason.
- All set up and ready to go.

- Applied patch for bug #352411. Didn't work first time, no output from the search engine was displayed. Spoke to sancus about it and he managed to debug the issue so it's working now.
- New bugs to look at: 358112, 357682, 347924 or 353210/353208
- Discussed bug #357682 with sancus and got it narrowed down to a server configuration problem rather than on Nutch's side.
- Working on #358112 now...
