LNMP0.5RB released!

by Ruchira on November 3, 2010

Nginx is claimed to me fastest web server software in the world. Most of people still use apache because ease of use and most of popular server control panels like cpanel is supporting apache. Apache is great web server if configured properly but its unstable,little bit memory and cpu hungry than nginx.

Unfortunately control panels for nginx like cpanel for apache is not available yet. So people needs to configure it by issuing SSH commands. Like working on DOS without windows 7.

A Chinese web developer called “Licess” wrote a nice script which installs and configure nginx for non tech savvy users. its official web page is www.lnmp.org and its free.

One disadvantage of that script is it doesnt install latest version of nginx (for now latest is 0.8.53) it installs legacy stable version. Actually its not major disadvantage but people kept asking for latest version. So I decided to modify his great script little bit to use the latest and greatest version of nginx. I call my modified script as LNMP0.5RB and original version is LNMP0.5 .

Whole credits goes for licess as original developer. And you can find the details about my modified installer script here- http://www.ruchirablog.com/nginx-autoinstaller/


500 Comments Passed! :)

by Ruchira on November 1, 2010


Today I have passed 500 approved (Not spam) comments mark since my first post. Its being a long journey and also lots of spam comments :D Akismet brave enough to catch up spams respectively. So Next post is little bit special its for celebrating 500 comments. So stay in touch.


Hmmm, Adsense publishers from around the world had very bad year! Can you remember the days that you got $2 per click every time? World Economic crisis *was hit adsense market on the past year very badly. :( People including me got $0.01 clicks. That made the whole day bad! I didn’t targeted adsense very much but you can estimate the pain when we see $0.05 for 5 ad clicks because it used to be more than $5 a year or months ago.

But now the economic is growing and phase is good. Companies begun to earn profits again. And adsense looks recovering too. I can see adsense is coming to normal state since last few weeks. And it should be nice news for web masters but its not like it used to be in 2007 but nice changes.

I would love to hear your experience also in comments about this! So are you doing good these days?

Take a look at that comments list! They are commented on my all the time top performer post http://www.ruchirablog.com/unlocking-huawei-hspa-modem-for-free/ “Unlocking Huawei modem for free”

I receive vast amount of traffic daily to that post! And I have written the whole procedure to unlock huawei HSDPA modems on that post. If you read it you will see it. And a part of it is calculating the unlock code for the specific huawei modem and the whole procedure is there.

But people keeps asking me how to calculate the unlock code and I recieve at least 2 comments daily asking the unlock code Finally I made the calculating part highlighted !

Why cant they calculate code themselves by reading the steps its briefly explained there?

Yes that’s my question. Answer it if you can!

My Favourite Whois checker tool

by Ruchira on October 22, 2010

Ok This might be not new thing to you. There are many whois checkers on internet to check the identity information and registration information of domain names. Most of them only provides domain registrant info and registration time period.
Other few provides some other information such as server information that the domain hosted etc. But the problem is most of those advanced whois checkers require to fill captcha form or filling some kind of identity form to check a domain. This is little bit boring and hard if you want to check many domains a day.

There is a handy tool to check all the domain registration information and hosted server information its whois.domaintools.com

Whois.domaintools.com provides great information about domain names. You can register there for free and then you can query unlimited amount of domains without filling Captcha puzzles or boring steps.

Only you have to do is add the domain name that you want to check after whois.domaintools.com/

Such as if you want to check www.ruchirablog.com whois info and server info you need to add ruchirablog.com after /

ex- whois.domaintools.com/ruchirablog.com and it will display all the data that external source can obtain.

Next time you spam be creative like this

by Ruchira on October 18, 2010

As a typical blogger I receive some reasonable amount of spam on my comments queue. This blog is fairly small but so its not a huge problem for me.

But for a blogger who owns a blog getting thousands of visitors a day they will be facing problems of managing the spam and comments. I receive about 10 spam comments a day most of them are rubbish and I dont know why spammers use 100s of words for their spam like this-

lol spam

Such kind of spams very easy to caught and about all of them gets caught as a spam on wordpress. If you are using wordpress you might be probably using akismet to filter spams on your comments queue. Akismet does nice job catching spams. But few creative spams ends on my blog uncaught.
