What is a financial asset?

Your biggest financial assets is not your wealth or what you own that is worth a certain amount of money. 

Real assets are your investments that generate a residual income for you. May it be stocks, income generating property, royalties, patents or a business that is managed for you. They are in contrast to your liabilities. 

Your income is not an asset and neither is your job. A car is not an asset and neither are most of the luxury items that we buy to enrich our lives. In most cases a house is not an asset either unless it generates an income, pays its own taxes and also appreciates in value. 

So start investing in assets that generate income with little or no work at all. Or at least initial work so that you can move forward to acquire more assets that generate more ongoing income for you. 

The rich become richer because they invest in assets that generate income exceeding their expenses giving them leverage. 

cPanel: Copy someone on all incoming/outgoing emails

Send all incoming/outgoing emails to someone as a copy using cPanel.

The department manager or boss of the business may want to be included on all emails that employees/staff receive on their email accounts as a copy. Most preferably a BCC so that it is hidden/unseen.

You can achieve this with cPanel and Exim filters.

Amazon CloudFront Wildcard Cache Delete

The Amazon CloudFront wildcard cache invalidation is supported at last.

For a long time this was not available and was a much requested feature, even forcing users to head over to different content delivery network providers. At least for me.

This is great news and will certainly make CDN management via Amazon CloudFront so much easier.

Install WHMCS in CakePHP (Invalid Token)

Installing WHMCS into CakePHP may give you an “Invalid Token” error as you try to perform tasks in the admin dashboard.

You may search online and find several discussions regarding PHP sessions which is true but not entirely. Some suggest changing the session’s name with PHP session_name('WHMCS'); in the configuration.php file. The real problem is with the rewrite base caused by CakePHP’s parent .htaccess file in the root.

WordPress Check If Is Dashboard

There is no specific function in WordPress to check if the current screen is the Dashboard screen. So best is to use

To check if it is currently the admin panel, the Dashboard as a whole, you can use the is_admin() function which returns a boolean true | false. Please note that wp_ajax_ requests will also return true on is_admin() though.

cPanel: The SSL certificate will expire in less than 30 days

If you have a WHM installation, you may receive several emails (one for each service) from your WHM installation regarding expiring SSL certificates.

The subject of the email may state:

The SSL certificate for cpanel on xxx will expire in less than 30 days

And the message may state something like:

Your server’s SSL certificate for cpanel will expire in less than 30 days. You need to install a new certificate as soon as possible. You can install a new certificate using WHM’s “Manage Service SSL Certificates” interface: https://xxx:2087/scripts2/manageservicecrts (Main >> Service Configuration >> Manage Service SSL Certificates).

The services that use valid SSL or even self-signed certificates include the FTP server, IMAP server (Dovecot by default), SMTP server (Exim by default) and then the cPanel/WHM/Webmail interfaces themselves. So 4 emails in total.

If you are using an actual, valid SSL certificate, you will have to renew it through your SSL certificate provider in order to take care of this.

In most cases though, the SSL certificates are self-signed through cPanel/WHM themselves so you can go to WHM > Service Configuration > Manage SSL certificates and click “Reset Certificate” for each of the 4 services and cPanel will automatically generate a new, self-signed certificate for you.

All set and done!

The Word is Your Justice

You may be rejected and disappointed in life but you are always accepted in Christ. 

The Word is your justice, law and guidance. 

The Scripture says, No man who believes in Him [who adheres to, relies on, and trusts in Him] will [ever] be put to shame or be disappointed. [Ps. 34:22; Isa. 28:16; 49:23; Jer. 17:7.] (‭Romans‬ ‭10‬:‭11‬ AMP)

The righteous will follow the Word into fulfilment of life and of our types. God has created us distinctively different and unique with one Law and one purpose.

For Christ is the end of the Law [the limit at which it ceases to be, for the Law leads up to Him Who is the fulfillment of its types, and in Him the purpose which it was designed to accomplish is fulfilled. That is, the purpose of the Law is fulfilled in Him] as the means of righteousness (right relationship to God) for everyone who trusts in and adheres to and relies on Him. (‭Romans‬ ‭10‬:‭4‬ AMP)

We cannot follow our own law and take the parts of the Word that we feel we apply to, we have to fully commit to the Word and it’s demands.
