I found out a few months ago that the first site I ever built was encountering an error somewhere in the database. Not very conveniently, I was told about this error while interviewing with Amazon for a software engineering internship. Not the best way to start off an interview!
It took me forever to get around to fixing the site. But that’s often how it goes with old coding projects. This website was literally the first project I ever took on, and finished. There’s no comments, and some ludicrously stupid logic, but hey it works!
It underwent one major redesign on the front end, but I’ve pretty much left it how it how it was back in high school. Maybe if I feel like writing some PHP one day when I’m bored I’ll revisit this project. We’ll see.
But anyway, the error wasn’t actually my fault and was simply caused by a phpMyAdmin migration on the server which reset my database password. It has been fixed and the site is back up and fully functional again.
