httpd and El Capitan

OS X, Sever Administration
Updated:

The new OS X fails to disappoint with new quirks and bugs that I trust Apple will iron out in good time. A few people have shared their problems with pfctl and how its port forwarding no longer works with 10.11. I added some more tips to the AMP -> OS X page on this […]

Me and the Cap’n made it happ’n

OS X
Updated:
El Capitan Installed

I, and the rest of the developer world, was rather shocked to receive an invitation to preview the new version of OS X: El Capitan. I was confused by the name, until my good coding colleague made me privy to the mountain in Yosemite Park, so it all makes a lot more sense. Of course, […]

An Up-To-Date Web Server

Sever Administration, Technology
Updated:
Everything a server should have

Take a really close look at this. Notice how the version of phpMyAdmin says “up to date”? See where it says the mysqli functions are being used? Notice how there are no errors about the pma tables and users? See that web server version? Apache 2.4.9. That is the most stable version of Apache and […]

a2enmod for Windows!

It’s been around for a little while, but win-a2enmod is one of the first actually useful pieces of software I’ve made, although it’s all PowerShell and Windows command line, so it could rightly just be called a script, but a fairly involved one. It is for managing modules and sites on Windows Apache, and I […]

Get FedUp

Technology

Just like the guide says, this is the most successful path to upgrading modern Fedora versions: sudo yum update fedup fedora-release sudo fedup –network 20 This upgrades from Fedora 19 to 20. Adding the –reboot option to fedup will automatically restart the system. You should then see a System Upgrade entry in grub’s menu. Selecting […]

Git ‘er done

Technology
Updated:

It would be great if Github would be clearer about this, but be aware that if you are contributing to someone else’s project by way of forking their repository into your account, you’re going to want to keep your pull request’s clean. First of all, you more than likely want the master branch of your […]

In the blink of an update

Technology
Updated:

Firefox users may have noticed that as of Mozilla’s release of version 23 today, they will no longer be supporting the blink tag. Your first feeling may be disbelief. Shock, even. Followed by disappointment. Bargaining. And then finally, acceptance. An article on the MDN points out that all of the major browsers, except for Opera, […]

My first repository

Technology

My first GitHub repository is a PowerShell script that mirrors the functionality of the a2enmod Perl script in Debian. I was hoping to find some parallel to that script in Windows, but the Internet showed me nothing, so I decided to whip up my own. See the man pages of the original commands. First, run […]

It’s been a long time, cousin…

Technology, The Site
Updated:

As you can see, I finally decided to step into the wonderful world of WordPress, and I may never go back. You can now feel free to leave comments as long as you leave your name and email, and are respectful, of course. When I started this site, my intention was to independently manufacture all […]
