Amazon S3 for web server backup

Zen and the Art of Nonprofit Technology

We have a script going which runs by cron daily to do the backups. We started using S3fs as a way to mount an S3 bucket in the filesystem, then just copy the files to S3. One of the scripts we’ve use is here. (We I’ve been getting to know Amazon S3 lately, and there are some great things about it. I think it is one of the long list of unpredicted successes that resulted from the near-ubiquitousness of open source software on the server side.

Fact versus Fiction: A Q & A on WordPress Plugins

Byte Technology

Also, because most plugins make a request to HTTP to load assets such as images, scripts etc., Therefore, if you’re using multiple plugins that are making too many requests to HTTP to load files, your site’s performance as well as the user experience can be greatly affected. To see if any of your plugins are affecting your page load time, it’s important to first check all the files that are being loaded by those plugins.

When you host server can’t find a specific file, by default it will display a page showing the contents of your directory—installed plugins, themes and the like—that’s easily readable by anybody. So check to see if this browsing option is enabled by creating a new folder on your site (a simple text file will do) then visiting your directory via your web browser. If you see a link pointing to the file you’ve created, directory browsing is enabled.

To prevent this from happening, set an email policy to block large emails and notify the sender, providing alternate methods for sending large files.

SplineTech Javascript debugger

Pages that were produced by server scripts - such as php or ASP pages, must be captured by viewing the page source and saved as HTML before debugging. But instead, you need to edit the asp file, launch it, and recapture it as HTML. If you've been working with Javascript in your web applications, you've no doubt spent some time wishing you had a real programmer's tool to work with - some way of setting breakpoints, inspecting variables, and the like.

J is for javascript.

Since XML puts the X in AJAX, and the J is for Javascript, the most obvious approach is getting the data as a textbook XML data file and using Javascript to display the data elements wherever you wish.

programming skills and, most likely, some level of comfort with the PHP scripting language. Most themes consist of one or more style sheets, a number of "tpl" files with PHP/HTML code laying out various page elements, such as blocks, footers and sidebars, and one called page.tpl.php that establishes the overall page layout. If you modify theme files in the main themes folder, and then upgrade to, say, a Drupal security fix, your modifications will be overwritten.
