My contribution was frontend/backend development (using a symfony-based CMS with multi-language and multi-site capability).
Received an email from google today claiming there may be some suspicious content on the subdomain feeds.chipwreck.de – which is just a DNS redirect to Feedburner (a dying RSS service which was bought by Google some time ago). The warning only occurred for this single subdomain, not for this website.
I had a look with several tools, looked into the database and the filesystem but didn’t find anything irregular. Either this was a false positive or the suspicious content is somehow related to Feedburner. Nevertheless I switched off the subdomain and removed the Feedburner service (which was a good idea anyway, the service has been rumored to shutdown). So if you can’t access the RSS feed anymore point your reader tohttp://www.chipwreck.de/blog/feed/.
Some other parts of the website are also a bit out of date, like “Bookmark this on Technorati!”, Flattr links to my inactive account etc. And the end of the year is a good time to clean up the website.
An update to my post Owncloud setup – replace Dropbox and Google Calendar: After several months with problems syncing files between OSX and owncloud I added this
experience to the article.
This article is work in progress and will be updated along the way. Last update: Sep 6th 2015 – problems, problems.
For some time (before dropdropbox) I thought about replacing dropbox as my primary cloud storage. Instead of choosing another provider like Google Drive or Wuala I decided to try owncloud.Continue reading “Owncloud setup – replace Dropbox and Google Calendar”
I’m moving my website to a new server (to have php 5.4) – therefore the website will be down for a few hours.
Everything should be up and running in a few hours and I’ll use this (semi-interesting) blog post to mention how content I’m with my provider:
Today I asked if it was possible to move my account to another server with php5.3/php5.4-support because the current server offers php5.3, but only via CGI. This usually is not a big thing, but there are certain drawbacks: For example it’s not possible to use “flush()/ob_flush()”. (Well you can use it, but the page is being sent in one piece anyway). Of course php via CGI was the last thing I thought of .. Before that I tried lots of different esoteric stack overflow hints (“Always send a Carriage Return!”, “Send at least 200 characters before each flush()” and so on..) until I finally realized it might have something to do with the server.
Well, long story short, a few minutes (sic!) later I received an e-mail that this is no problem and my webspace can be moved to another server if desired.
By the way: It seems the Akismet Anti-Spam plugin has some major problems the last weeks – because 95% of all posts I receive for review are spam. Not a very big deal, because I’m talking about 10 to 30 posts per week and according to the stats last month about 19.000 posts were directly marked as spam… – but if you sent a useful comment and it’s not released yet, well that might be the problem, sorry..
This isn’t meant to be stupid advertising or to promote the partner-link below (you’re of course welcome to use it, but I think it’s only interesting for German users) – it’s rather a recommendation.
So, honestly recommended as provider: all-inkl.com.
My contribution was setting up and customizing the Magento online shop as well as integrating WordPress.
