cPanel/WHM: Change mail server IP address

I love emails, it fascinates me! I am still frequently surprised and intrigued by the various algorithms and procedures that mail servers follow to look up, identify, read and process emails. Working with emails and making sure that headers, identification, content, etc. are all appropriate can get tricky. At least we can reduce the stress caused by blacklisted IP addresses!

Let’s get started!

git svn Item is out of date

From my experience, git svn is troublesome but sometimes you have no choice.

Using only svn or only git is fine. I used to love svn and switched over to git primarily due to it’s user-friendly structure and interfaces. Unfortunately using git and svn together with a git repository pushing to a subversion trunk branch or some similar setup can get tricky.

I’m not an expert with git svn but I do have some experience with it mainly due to hosting plugins on the WordPress plugins directory and repository.

WordPress 4.3 WP_Widget PHP Notice

WordPress 4.3 “Billie” was just released.

Some plugins that use WordPress widgets may try to access the WP_Widget class method directly in it’s own class method like this:

$this -> WP_Widget()

As a result, WordPress gives the following PHP notice:

Notice: The called constructor method for WP_Widget is deprecated since version 4.3.0! Use __construct() instead

The solution is to change…

$this -> WP_Widget()

to…

parent::__construct()

Mac OS X: Install Command Line Tools without Xcode

Command line tools on Mac OS X is included with Xcode but you may not want to install the entire Xcode to get git, svn and other packages.

So simply open the terminal and run this command:

xcode-select –install

A dialog will then open asking if you want to “Get Xcode”, “Not Now” or “Install” so you’ll click the “Install” button.

A download will start and the size is about 130Mb. Once it’s done downloading and installing, you can use any of the packages included in command lines.

This works on OS X Mavericks, Yosemite and I’ve tested it on El Capitan as well, no problems at all.

What can you do for me?

No longer will we have a pathetic and empathetic attitude towards candidates coming into the office to fill in a questionnaire or for an interview. We are not here to serve them. Those days are over!

Whomever is interested in working with us need to convince me why I should hire them by telling me what they can do for me. How can they make my workload lighter, how can they contribute towards the growth of the business and how can they evolve themselves in the process. Growth and evolution in an employee is expected and it should be implemented into the company again in return. 

I’ve seen lazy people and I’ve seen stagnating people but once I’ve seen a disloyal person and lost all my trust. I will make sure that doesn’t happen again. Good riddance and good luck!

My wife made a joke when i said that the new employer of that person never phoned me as a reference. She said that if they did i should’ve told them that I don’t want to tell them how bad he is because then I may not be able to get rid of him. That is how you call a spade a spade!

I’m minding my own business to do my business. I’m not here to entertain you, make sure you can sustain your lifestyle or to watch you wash your dirty laundry. I expect you to do your work and do it with passion and willingness. If you can’t do that we are going to have a problem. 

Responsibility Towards Money

Money isn’t evil, money is just money and fortunately but unfortunately we cannot live without it. As much as we may want to deny and fight it, we need it! More importantly, we also really, really want more of it.

So we don’t have to fear money, we simply have to get our heads around it and take control of it in our lives. We can eliminate financial stress and also reduce the impact that money makes in our lives by just being in control of it.

cPanel: Run backup manually

Run cPanel backups manually via command line.

For the legacy system, use this command:

/scripts/cpbackup

For the new backup system, use this command:

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup

The latter is most likely what you’re looking for and you can append it with a --force parameter to force the backup to start running.

And then you can tail the log that it outputs if you want to watch it as it runs.

How can I force a backup to run on the new 11.38 system in command line? Best Answer: Yes, you can use: /usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup –force Thank you.
