I haven’t set this up yet, but I’m due for a new PC very soon, so I know that I’ll be needing to do this sooner rather than later, so I wanted to share some of the resources that I’ve found on how to get it working. Continue reading Using WAMP in Windows 8
I recently had to sort out a database for a client. It was a mess….
The database was for people to contact, sort of like a telemarketing system (their choice, not mine…). The problem that they were having was that the database contained a lot of entries that had people with different names at the same address with the same phone number. As you can imagine, calling the same people over and over again just because their phone number has come up again was not the best way to make friends.

I am hearing this more and more these days. Partly on the WordPress forums, and also form clients that come to me and say “why does my site have these pharmacy adds on it?”
Now I know that I’m probably going to get told off for this, and maybe even have some “official notices”, but I’m going to tell it like I see it.
In the past month I’ve got two things going on. I’ve been planning a wedding, and I’ve been discussing money matters with various parties. All in all, a very standard thing to do. Most of this has taken place through my default email account, that just happens to be GMail.
So, why do I think that that’s lead to me being SPAM’ed by Google? Very easy…
It seems to be that there’s a whole lot of people that are getting this error message when they are trying to install or move their WordPress site. Even though this problem is common and there’s a very simple solution, people seem to always have more trouble with it then it’s worth. Continue reading WordPress problems: Cannot Connect To Database
