Installing Odoo 8.0 nightly on Ubuntu 14.04 from repository, plus monit

  • Installing Odoo 8.0 nightly on Ubuntu 14.04 from repository, plus monit

    Odoo Installation While I’ve been using Ultimate Client Manager to track leads and handle accounting for LocalPointMedia, I’ve hit the point that I need something with Android integration for not only me, but hopefully other consultants as well. I decided to give Odoo (formerly OpenERP) a try. Because it’s not as simple as uploading PHP files and […]

  • Linode KVM initial impressions #linode #kvm

    Linode recently announced the official release of KVM Linodes, which they claimed a significant speed improvement over Xen. I run a 1 GB RAM Ubuntu 14.04 instance running VestaCP for my websites ($10/month) and normally see 480-490 MB RAM used. I don’t run anything intensive so I don’t see much processor use, but I upgraded […]

  • [Free|Commercial] Child Theme Configurator plugin for WordPress

    Child themes take your "This theme is great, but …" and turns them into "This theme is great!" #wordpress — Steven Brady (@stevendbrady) June 7, 2015 That was my exact sentiment just earlier today. I recently purchased for myself a lifetime subscription to TeslaThemes and have been developing a few sites using these themes (my blog […]

  • Setup monit on Ubuntu 14.04 with VestaCP #ubuntu #vestacp

    One of the things I’ve noticed VestaCP is sorely missing is automatic restarting of stopped services. Moreover, if you install VestaCP on a VPS with 1 GB RAM or less, MySQL will fail. A lot. So I setup monit to monitor and restart services. And, since I made each service its own configuration file, I […]

  • Install apticron for Ubuntu update notifications #vestacp #ubuntu

    One of the few shortcomings of VestaCP is the lack of notification and control of system updates. It’s a very small detail, but one that can become a huge security risk if you take a hands-off approach to your server. Who wants to or even remembers to check their VPS regularly for updates? Fortunately there’s […]

  • Setup monit on Ubuntu 12.04 with VestaCP #ubuntu #vestacp

    One of the things I’ve noticed VestaCP is sorely missing is automatic restarting of stopped services. Moreover, if you install VestaCP on a VPS with 1 GB RAM or less, MySQL will fail. A lot. So I setup monit to monitor and restart services. And, since I made each service its own configuration file, I […]

  • Stream WMC to Roku

    So I bought Ashlyne a Roku last year, and the one thing that discouraged me from buying more of them was the inability to stream live and recorded TV from my Windows Media Center to it. Every couple months I search for solutions, don’t find anything worthwhile, and shelf the idea. Last week I finally […]

  • Chaos in Carroll County 2

    The family and I went on Saturday night to an independent wrestling show, held by ACW and BTW, called Chaos in Carroll County 2. It’s probably the first live event I’ve been to in a decade, and oh how I missed it. We went primarily to get pictures with Jake “the Snake” Roberts, but we […]

  • Killing a stalled FTP job in Windows

    We’ve been having a scheduled FTP job hang up, and it’s holding up tons of other processes randomly over the last few weeks. Frustrated by how much work it sometimes takes to fix the errors it causes, I made a simple script change to start the job, wait 30 seconds (since it generally takes less […]
