It takes time to configure, and must be re-configured whenever PHP script software is added to a virtual server. The more plu… 13, 1, 4, 0 and 7435.54

WordPress with W3 Total Cache on Nginx with APC (Virtualmin)

Virtualmin now includes support for Nginx web server. I deploy many WordPress sites with W3 Total Cache and APC Alternative PHP Cache, so I was very interested to see how Nginx performance compares to Apache for WordPress, and whether APC and W3TC would play nice with Nginx. I prefer to install WordPress in public_html/wordpress for ease of development, compatibility with other scripts, etc. Accordingly, the suggested configuration is for WordPr… 5, 0, 0, 0 and 3847.76

APC Cache Considerations for Virtual Hosting Environments

…and every individual virtual host has a unique PHP.ini and a unique fcgiwrapper. This is not the case with many virtual hosting environments because the memory and CPU requirements are too great. I suggest using Virtualmin for a shared hosting environment with APC cache, because it does allow to set php.ini and fcgiwrapper for every individual virtual host, and so to set an individual configuration for APC per virtual server. However with 200+ v… 7, 1, 3, 0 and 2170.88

Install phpMyAdmin with SSL on CentOS, Amazon Linux, RedHat (Apache or NginX)

phpMyAdmin database display I recently ran into a problem with the upgraded 3.5.2 phpMyAdmin package provided via the rpmforge.repo.

Auto Mailer Form with Validation and reCAPTCHA

I was recently searching for a form template that uses Twitter’s Bootstrap framework. PFBC, the PHP Form Builder Class, was recently refactored with Bootstrap, and it also supports validation and reCAPTCHA. PFBC does not include a form handler, but it does take the difficult and redundant work out of creating self-validating forms. Adding an auto-mailer to PFBC is very simple, however. You just need a simple PHP if/else and all is well. If… 11, 0, 0, 0 and 571.96
