Page #1 For “Qatar Photographer” With New VPS

When Juliette Sawyer, a professional photographer based in Doha, Qatar approached me earlier this year, she was looking to improve two specific issues: firstly, her web hosting at GoDaddy was under-performing to the point that when visitors from Qatar loaded her homepage, they couldn’t even view her online photographs at times; secondly, despite her growing […]

How (And Why) To Disable WordPress XML-RPC

In my opinion, the XML-RPC function in WordPress is a nightmare. Back in the day, core WordPress contributors thought it would be a cool idea to allow remote connections to WordPress websites, for the purpose of such things like a desktop blogging client (or more recently, for the WordPress mobile apps that allow blog management […]

Owners, Groups, & Permissions Reset Script

Oh, file permissions! Perhaps one of the most annoying things for both web hosts and webmasters across the globe are those pesky file permissions that get in the way of software updates, media uploads, and other maintenance tasks. For better or worse, it tends to be a knee-jerk scapegoat for many developers: “hmm, could it […]

How I Ranked #1 For “Upwork Sucks” In 3 Weeks

The fact that I’m sharing this story may shock some of my beloved readers — after all, a large number of current LittleBizzy clients first found me via Upwork.com, the freelance marketplace that this post will in part criticize.

As the 21st century marches onward and things like “smart devices” and “drones” and “3D printers” become the latest buzz, one truth remains in the digital age: Google has retained its steadfast grip (read: complete monopoly) on all things search. Despite initial scares from Facebook’s widely announced Open Graph technology, and Microsoft’s desperate attempts at […]

MySQL 5.6 Configuration (WordPress Optimized)

Optimizing MySQL configurations is without question the most difficult and debated of any typical server configuration process. While other software such as Ubuntu, Nginx, or PHP are generally quite similar over the course of several releases, MySQL (and other SQL derivatives) can change drastically between version releases. And, unlike some other server applications, changing a […]

POLL: Are You Interested In MailPoet Premium?

Here at LittleBizzy our goal is simple: to eliminate as many bills, accounts, logins, and clutter from the WordPress experience as possible while simultaneously improving the loading speed and security of our clients’ websites. Interestingly, these two goals are often extremely complementary to each other and are usually inter-dependent. I owe some of you an […]

UptimeRobot: New FREE Service For Our Clients

LittleBizzy is excited to announce a new partnership with UptimeRobot to monitor the uptime of all our client websites. Some of you are aware that we’ve been in talks with Pingdom over the past several months, but due to limitations in both their billing and alert systems, we began looking for an alternative monitoring service.

Install A Free Self-Signed SSL Certificate On Nginx

SSL. It’s the word of the year, it would seem, ever since Google’s late 2014 announcement that installing an SSL certificate on your website would effect rankings in their search engine algorithm. And all for the better, as I’ve written about before: traditional SEO is dead and things are finally starting to get exciting again […]
