Monday, October 14th, 2013

GUI confuses me sometimes, so I prefer to make configurations in text files. For DD-WRT, OpenVPN server is available in OpenVPN, OpenVPN Small, Big, Mega, and Giga builds: K2.6 Build Features.

WordPress Update: Upgrade package not available (3.5)

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

I used to upgrade WordPress manually using FTP. I would update a local copy of the website, make sure everything works on my laptop and then upload it to the server.

Redirecting WordPress Permalinks in Nginx

Saturday, January 19th, 2013

I know, it’s been really a long time since I last wrote an article in this blog. But trust me, I’ve done a lot of improvements at the back end. The blog is now in a new server, with new backup infrastructure, and most importantly served by Nginx. I was just casually looking at 404 […]
