Edited on 28 Jan 2018: Fixed! Old entries back up.
The previous blog used the Ghost CMS. While trying to upgrade it, I couldn’t restart the node and decided to switch CMS for the time being. Ghost is a fairly new CMS when compared to WordPress. I’m admittedly way more familiar with WordPress, so this fresh install onto the server was super fuss free!
There is a backup of the previous posts in a .JSON file. However a stable plugin that allows a .JSON import of posts has yet to surface, so let’s take this afresh for now.
