24 hours in China

24 hours in China

I spent one whole day in China!

As to get to Europe from New Zealand was a bit tricky, I had some hours between flights in Guangzhou, I though If life takes me there anyways, then I could have a bit more time and spend some time in the city, instead of spending some useless hours at the airport. So, I’ve booked the second flight to the next day.

WordPress /wp-admin Redirects To 404 Error Page

You can’t login to your own site… That might feel scary, but first of all, don’t panic!

I recently experienced that issue with my own site, and I wanted to find out what was the root of the problem. There are several reasons, what might affect your login page, but let’s not forget the issue might be caused by your newly installed plugins or themes.

Even if your login page doesn’t work at the moment, you can still reach your site from your server. You might have cPanel, FTP, or access by the terminal.

My problem was caused by a security plugin, called WP Cerber, which by the way does the job, and protects my site from brutal force attacks, and logins from not authorized parties.

It turned out that my IP got blocked after 2 attempts of the wrong password (It happens sometimes).

In case you have the same issue, there are some ways to fix the problem. My fastest bet would be to use a VPN service. Betternet actually offers that for free. I use their Chrome extension and their app for my iPhone, it comes handy when you’re in China and would like to reach your Gmail, and other blocked sites, or apps. After login into your WordPress site, check the plugin’s settings and remove the block from your IP address. Tip: add your IP to the whitelist, then it’ll never be blocked again in the future.

The other way to fixing the issue is by manually logging into (SSH) the server and MySQL database, then find and delete the row that has your IP address in it. An easy way to find out your IP, check out this website!

Keep your site always secure, Happy New Year!

 

 

 

Why Use WordPress?

Why Use WordPress?

Sometimes I need to convince my clients to use WordPress. They either have a lack of knowledge about this CMS (Content Management System) or had a bad experience with it.

With a campervan in New Zealand

I always wanted to try this form of traveling. Living in a camper van. Finally, we did it!

Is it a real thing, that people ride campervans around New Zealand?

Hell yeah! You would be surprised how commonly is. Now it’s quite a low season, but still, tons of vans are on the road. I can’t even imagine what’s the situation when it’s actually warm, and high season.

When you’re traveling for a year

When you’re traveling for a year

Last year on 13th April we headed to the San Francisco airport to catch our flight to Bangkok at 1 am. For Grant, it was the first time to leave the USA, since then we traveled to 17 countries together.

One year of traveling on the map, 17 countries

I collected some questions that you were interested in, based on the messages I received.

It seems like a miracle when you actually live this life?

Absolutely! For me, this is not natural, or easy. Every single time we go to a new place, new country and when we are there, every day it comes to my mind, how lucky I am to experience all these beauties.
