  I wanted to move a WordPress Multisite from Digital Ocean to a Raspberry Pi running on my LAN. The total size of the sites was just over 1 GB. After checking Google, it seems the Migrate Guru plugin could do the job. After several failed attempts, it finally worked and here are my tips, […]

I was following the excellent instructions on how to Build a LAMP Web Server with WordPress on my Pi running on my LAN. Everything worked fine with the internal LAN IP address. I wanted to have the web server accessible from the Internet and I thought all I had to do was setup port forwarding […]

If you run your own DNS server like pihole, you can see in the logs that Netgear routers wants to contact a couple of Netgear servers hundreds of times a day. Netgear has been silent on why they need to do this in public forums. Pihole has a pretty simple way to block this request […]

It is not as simple as just ordering a new plan. While the NBN supplied termination device (NTD) has four data ports, UNI-D 1-4, and theoretically can have four separate ISPs providing simultaneous services, this doesn’t work if one of the services is at gigabit speed, such as a 1000/50 plan. NBN won’t allow you […]

There’s no clear instruction on how to allow this via the Unifi Controller. On my UDM running the solution is to Accept ICMPv6 and IPv6-ICMP protocols on the WAN-Local interface of the Firewall. This allows you to get 10/10 from the test site http://test-ipv6.com. If you’re using this test https://ipv6-test.com the results are different on Safari, Chrome […]

Many ISPs have a two-tier quota system. My ISP gives me a separate data allowance for off peak which is between 2am and 8am. I thought this would be a perfect for uploading images to my client’s FTP server. But, how do I kick off a transfer in the middle of the night? I’ve been […]

I was putting together a Twitter List of photo agencies and came across this useful link: Agencies and Collectives « P H O T O J O U R N A L I S M L I N K S. You can also subscribe to my Twitter list here: https://twitter.com/#!/list/sydlow/photo-agencies which follows a few agencies […]

I finally migrated my web site, blog and image archive into a single platform. Previously I had Slideshowpro Director serve the images on my main site, wordpress.com to host my blog and Photoshelter for the image archive. The migration is now a free Graph Paper Press wordpress theme (Widescreen) that’s covering the main site https://syd-low.com, […]

Don’t know how this happened, but my web site is #1 if you look for sports photography (in Australia anyway)! Pretty cool eh.

So I got excited by TB3’s new search feature which is similar to the once great Zoe idea. However, after importing my Mail.app local files and letting it index overnight TB3’s not a replacement for Mail.app and Spotlight. TB3’s search feature presents the results in a more contextually useful way allowing the results to be […]

Open-Mesh.com looks interesting. I’ve been using Meraki for a few years but this appears to have simpler payment options.
