Still Being Puzzled by My Web Site Admin Issues!

By Tim

This is really, really frustrating and the web host has been of little to no help. But once I go into my admin panel in WordPress after a few edits or posting a new post, I am unable to connect to the site!

Worse yet I can’t connect to any of my sites once the connection is broken, which all reside on the same IP!

So if anyone has a clue as to why this maybe happening, I would certainly appreciate the help!

You can leave a comment here, but DO NOT leave a URL otherwise it will get auto-deleted…sorry. Leave comments in the YOUTube post below.

The sound, as usual, isn’t perfect, but you can see the issue easily. This is not just a VPN issue, it happens when connected via cable or phone hot spot directly!

That is all for now,

Tim

A surge of sites and apps are exhausting your CPU to mine cryptocurrency

By Dan Goodin

The Internet is awash with covert crypto currency miners that bog down computers and even smartphones with computationally intensive math problems called by hacked or ethically questionable sites.

The latest examples came on Monday with the revelation from antivirus provider Trend Micro that at least two Android apps with as many as 50,000 downloads from Google Play were recently caught putting crypto miners inside a hidden browser window. The miners caused phones running the apps to run JavaScript hosted on Coinhive.com, a site that harnesses the CPUs of millions of PCs to mine the Monero crypto currency. In turn, Coinhive gives participating sites a tiny cut of the relatively small proceeds. Google has since removed the apps, which were known as Recitiamo Santo Rosario Free and SafetyNet Wireless App.

Last week, researchers from security firm Sucuri warned that at least 500 websites running the WordPress content management system alone had been hacked to run the Coinhive mining scripts. Sucuri said other Web platforms—including Magento, Joomla, and Drupal—are also being hacked in large numbers to run the Coinhive programming interface.

Do You Think Your Site Is Secure? The Odds Are You Are Wrong

The Internet is still the Wild West!

Sure you have lots of firewalls, IP-Blocks and all sorts of other good security measures on your web server.

I have the same stuff and nothing here even worth hacking, but if you click the image a the top of this article you will see an average day here…

Yep, this is a short post, but if you have a WordPress powered web site, install some security! I am using the Shield plugin, plus a few others.

That is all,

Tim

So to properly test out the Dragon Touch X10 I installed a server app and WordPress. It works!

So in my never ending quest to find out something that my Dragon Touch X10 tablet can’t do, I decided to throw a web server app on it today.

I can happily report that the KSWeb app and WordPress work just dandy on this tablet (which I am writing this post on using it in LogiTab configuration). The screenshot at the top of this article is the site I set up, strictly for loca testing, of course….

Below you wil find a short video that I screen captured (a very nice built in feauture on the Dragon Touch slate).

Got WordPress? Having cron (scheduling issues)? Running Linux?

webmin1If you are like me you wouldn’t ever dream of running a web server on the holy swiss cheese of security known as Windows, not to mention the ridiculous pricing and lousy support.

So if you do have a WordPress site running at home or maybe elsewhere you might run into issues where your wp_cron.php file just ain’t hacking the program. Take this little server here for instance, since I switched over to a Linux LAMP stack from Turnkey Linux I have had to manually update my feeds via the RSS Multi Importer plugin. Even my little Asus Tablet running android and KSWeb did the automated tasks in WordPress better than this super, duper, VM with twice the ram and 100 times the disk space.

So I read, and I Googled and I learned and in just under 5 hrs last night I solved my cron issues. This virtual host now imports feeds every 15 minutes or so and the others I have running on this machine do them every 30 mins to an hour.

How you do that? You might be asking… well I took some advice from what I learned on the web, then had to insert a bunch of common sense/logic to replace the lack of decent help from the pure Linux geeks who assume we all know what is going on in their heads….no offense geeks, you put out the info, but left out many details.

I also used a super easy piece of software to edit my Linux cron scheduler, it’s called Webmin and probably makes the true Linux gurus squeamish, but it works just dandy.

The only command you need is the one below:

wget http://mywebsite.com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron=1 > /dev/null 2>&1

Note: If you don’t happen to have access to cron on your web host I will suggest you try out a site such as EasyCron.com. Keep in mind the setup/command is still the same with the exception of not needing the ‘wget’ command.
