Never one to pass up an opportunity to play around with something free, I examined RedHat’s OpenShift and the terrifying git cloning business. My, isn’t that difficult to work.
Eventually, making use of their “Instant App,” I created a “WordPress 3.x” install, and, without thinking about possible the consequences of that, uploaded the database from this blog into it.
This morning, I noticed that this had completed successfully, but within minutes, it went from “503 Service Unavailable” to “Host not Found”. Some searching for “There are not enough free gears available to create a new application. You will either need to scale down or delete existing applications to free up resources.” brought this link: https://www.openshift.com/forums/openshift/applications-disappeared so I duly fired off an email with my username and what happened. But it was crossed in the mail with a missive from them:
|Hello!On Mar 18, 2014 at 07:49:23 AM the OpenShift operations team flagged your application.

Meh. So basically, a blog post about a shell script, actually quoting that script, is not possible, because of their over-zealous anti-virus?
So, some more emailing. And: Ouch! Not even a salutation, now…
|We have given you back the ability to create gears.
Please make sure that you do not post that content again.
The gear and it’s content were deleted and will not be restored.
