So recently I've been exploring the alternative world of Nginx instead of Apache, and PHP-FPM instead of mod_php. There are plenty of tutorials on the net for getting all of this setup, however not that many are up to date anymore for the Super Cache stuff. Hopefully what I ...

A problem that has given lots of people problems, caused me issues yesterday. I have munin using munin-cgi-graph to create the graphs on demand due to me not often viewing the graphs. A few days ago I had a server issue that caused apache to lock up (I think a ...

I think today is Day 13.

So finally I've had a chance to sit down and nut this out. First things first, getting hello world to run on the iPhone. Finally I worked out how to self sign a certificate, and get Xcode to build it, then using a ...

So not much has happened over the weekend due to it being very busy. Today the mini-DVI to HDMI adapter arrived, so I could finally "dock" the Macbook at my desk. After "docking" it with my monitor, keyboard and mouse, it suddenly feels less like a laptop and more like ...

I've decided to blog this journey of learning and challenge. I am developing a mobile app, initially for iOS and eventually for Android. I have given myself an initial 60 days to get it done, 60 days from getting the equipment.

For someone that prides himself on security, it is rather embarrassing to get hacked. I currently don't know how they got in, or exactly what they have done. I have changed my passwords and security questions though.

For the second time in a week, I've heard of a websites user database being leaked. In the first case it was from a site I've never used. The second though was a site I signed up to a few months back.
One of the biggest problems with ...

Drupal upgrades have not been easy, and they should be easy. You look at wordpress, one click and the upgrade is done! Plugins, themes and core can all be upgraded from in the browser.

Drupal upgrades are traditionally backup, move all files out, extract new fresh files, move selected files ...

After finally getting my IPv6 working nicely, it was time to prevent Transmission from using IPv6 asĀ  I don't want lots of torrent traffic going through the tunnel when it's faster through IPv4 (until a time I can get Native IPv6). Apparently this is an "invalid" feature request ...
