If you have multiple domains installed in a virtual host configuration with one IP address in Apache, the IP address may not resolve to the domain you prefer. Let me explain.
For example, you have the following domains running on an Ubuntu Server with one IP address.
All the domains are resolving as expected on the browser.
However, if you type the IP address on the browser, it only defaults to the first domain found in the /etc/apache2/sites-available directory, which is most likely abc.com.
If you want the IP address to default to another domain, such as klm.com for example, you will need to edit the /etc/apache2/httpd.conf file and add the following entries.
Those are the only entries you’ll need. Typing the IP address on the browser will now default to the contents of klm.com. All the other domains are still accessible via domain names on the browser.
There is a conflict between the Twenty Twelve WordPress and the All in One SEO Pack plugin. When the plugin is installed and you happen to be using the Twenty Twelve theme, the result is, there will be no space between your site title and blog title. You’ll notice this if you look at the title bar of your browser. After a couple of searches, I found a fix online. It involves editing the Twenty Twelve functions.php file and commenting out line 185 which contains the code below.
You will need to change:
add_filter( 'wp_title', 'twentytwelve_wp_title', 10, 2 );
and comment out:
// add_filter( 'wp_title', 'twentytwelve_wp_title', 10, 2 );
Also, you need to clear your browser cache to see results.
Since Google decided to shutdown Reader the other day, I decided to migrate over to Feedly. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one. Feedly announced today that there over 500,000 users that have migrated over from Reader. Not a bad pickup for a week.
The main reason I went with Feedly was the interface looks modern and clean. I also like the section “You Might Also Like.” It give users access to feeds similar in content. As long as Feedly keeps their end of the bargain by making the pages snappy, I think most Google Reader users will be happy.

When you download a file from a website, they usually come with a 128 bit hash the called MD5 hash. The 32 digit hash is used to check for the integrity of the file to make sure the file hasn’t been altered in any way. So, how do you check MD5 hash on the Mac OS? Open up your Terminal and type the following:
The MD5 command will spit out a 12b bit hash that you can compare it with on a website’s download page. If the hash match, then the file’s integrity is intact. If it doesn’t match, then the file has been altered and compromised. Get rid of it. You never know what’s in it.
