Shortly after the release of WordPress 3 I offered a solution to broken page navigation conceivably caused by upgrading from version 2. Recently, in an attempt to fix a long-standing and seemingly unrelated issue, page navigation reared its head once more.(more…)
Whether using XAMPP or MAMP to provide a local server environment I prefer to have the respective Apache and MySQL servers start when I login.
With XAMPP I use a launch daemon and this works perfectly. With MAMP it’s even easier as there’s an option to Start Servers when starting MAMP in MAMP’s preferences. I only need to add MAMP.app to my Login Items and MAMP’s servers will be up and running after logging in.(more…)
Having recently changed my local testing server environment from XAMPP to MAMP v2.0.5 I wanted to change the password for the MySQL root user. By default it’s set to root.
Changing the MySQL password for the root user was straightforward enough, but locating and editing the files to reflect the new password was a different story. Failure to update all the necessary files results in MAMP reporting the following error:
/Applications/MAMP/Library/bin/mysqlcheck: Got error: 1045: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) when trying to connect
Information on MAMP’s own site appeared incomplete and other documentation I found — while helpful — was for versions of MAMP prior to version 2.(more…)
There are occasions when we want to make a computer on a home/local area network (LAN) accessible externally on the Internet. For example, remotely connecting to a LAN computer using SSH or remotely accessing a web site residing on a LAN computer.(more…)
Each computer connected to a local network is assigned a dynamic IP address. On occasion it’s useful, if not essential, to assign a static IP address instead. As an example, port forwarding requires the destination computer on a local network to have a static IP address.
Using OS X Lion 10.7.1, I’ll describe two ways of assigning a static IP address to a computer on a local network.(more…)
A much touted feature of OS X Lion is the ability to use applications in full-screen mode. It’s easy enough to make an already open application full-screen, but I’ve had limited success re-opening applications full-screen using the initial public 10.7.0 release of Lion.(more…)
I never did get to the bottom of the issue I was having with the Jetpack plugin and page navigation in WordPress. So, it seemed I would either have to do without site statistics provided by the Jetpack plugin or this site would have to forego page navigation.
I’ve been using site statistics provided WordPress.com for some time. The popular posts widgets in the sidebar and on single post pages rely on these statistics to display this site’s most viewed posts and pages.(more…)
I’ve currently disabled page navigation on this site as it appears to be broken. While I can’t be 100% certain, the culprit appears to be the Jetpack plugin I use that incorporates WordPress.com Stats.(more…)
Of all the Firefox add-ons I have installed the one I’ve come to rely on is the official Delicious Bookmarks add-on.
This and many other add-ons have been incompatible with Firefox since the release of Firefox 4 back in March. One of the work-a-rounds was to disable add-on compatibility checking in Firefox.(more…)
