I have an website which is hosted on Dreamhost.
I has a script to convert video from any formats to flv file, which can be played as flash video.
When I look at the error which made is shown as below.
ffmpeg unknown encoder mp3
It looks like mp3 audio is not supported by ffmpeg on Dreamhost. I think it is supported when I first write this script.
I checked the support history under Dreamhost control panel. The log said the account is moved to a new server last month. It may make something different.
OK. I google it and got the answer

I downloaded the trial version of Diskeeper Pro Premier 2010 and installed it on my Desktop.
There are a few features I like.
New! IntelliWrite™ fragmentation prevention technology. IntelliWrite prevents up to 85% of the fragmentation every system suffers from. It intelligently writes contiguous files to the disk so system resources are not wasted creating fragmentation. The results? A whole new level of system speed and efficiency.
InvisiTasking® technology enables management-free defragmentation with zero management overhead and zero system overhead. Now improved for busy systems. Having to schedule defrag runs is now a thing of the past.
I-FAAST® technology (Intelligent File Access Acceleration Sequencing Technology) automatically boosts access speeds for the most commonly used files.
Free Space Defragmentation Engine has been enhanced to increase file-write performance.
Just noticed that, from September 1, 2010, Shaw Cable increased her price. My Shaw Invoice is changed from $79.46 to $82.82. Actually, because of HST, the total price is changed from $76.60 to $79.46 from July 1, 2010.
So the all difference is $82.82 – $76.60= $6.22. About 8% increase.
It has more increase than the average Canadian inflation rate. If you use tools from Bank of Canada, Inflation Calculator, you can see the inflation rate from 2009 to 2010 is only 1.74%.
Same service, Higher price. I am shame on Shaw.
I will consider to change the services currently with Shaw. Telus is a potential service provider.
I have an VPS at Burst.net. I pick up Centos 5.5 installation. To make MovableType work on it, I have to install Perl module Image::Magick. The image thumbnail feature will be disabled if no Image::Magick installed.
Every time I do it, I always have the problem to install it. Now I recorded here for reference.
Here is the official guide for installation of ImageMagick. I follow the instruction, but it is still not working.
So I use the way suggested on above link.

* Cache-control header support – save even more on transfer costs.
* GZip – yet another way to save on transfer costs.
* Custom http headers support

Last Friday, I put an .htaccess file into one folder of my site. The function of this htaccess is to make it auto redirect to other path.
The problem is it is not working. I do have use this kind of code many times. Why it does not work any more?
It looks the Apache works like there is no this .htaccess file here. I think it must be something wrong in my httpd.conf setting.
After double checking with Apache tutorial, I found the answer.
