Wordpress Showing Insecure Icon in Address Bar When Using https

Wordpress Site Shows Insecure Icon in Browser Address Bar When Using https Here's a common scenario: you build a new wordpress site, and then decide to turn on https after it's fully built, as a result some of your image assets are still referenced with http vs https.  Chrome and Firefox will show "insecure" when they are loaded.  This is how to change that broken lock symbol to a closed lock symbol. How to Fix There are add-ons that will try to fix this or you can use URL re-writing, or you could edit the SQL database records and change all http to https.  My preferred method is to dump the WP_POSTMETA and WP_POSTS tables from the Wordpress SQL database, then edit the dump files with vim, then load them back in. Dump The Tables Dump the Tables The dump Files Using VIM to edit Use this VIM command Import them now using source command in mysql Summary SSH into your server, then dump the tables, then use vim to search and replace

Shoretel Director - Locked Out Until Full License Compliance Has Been Restored. Get Back In!

Suddenly Without Warning You Are Locked Out of Shoretel Director You or your phone system administrator has made a change that violated your licensing, such as added softphones or granted some user Workgroup Supervisor roles. And 45 days went by and nobody noticed the red warning banner. Now you are locked out for good.  That's real cute , thanks guys. You need to call Shoretel TAC to unlock it. You may even need to call your "partner" Grrrr....  Unfortunately, the only fix is to add more licences to come into compliance again.  Furthermore, you may have to pay for another compliance token.  Fortunately, there IS another way to weasel your way back into Shoretel Director so you can comply with the licencing.  Our method of weaseling back in is to edit the MainFrame.asp front end director landing page.  First step is to use RDP to logon to the console of your HQ server.  In this excercise, we will show you how to do this with Shoretel 14.2 (build 19.82)  This method

Wordpress wp-members customization - login failure message

How to Change the Message Displayed to Users When They Logon to WP-MEMBERS pages The default link shown to users when they fail to logon is just URL/wp-profile which is just plain stupid. You can change it to a custom logon page. You will be editing these files: dialogs.php , class-wp-members.php and  api-forms.php full paths: ./wp-content/plugins/wp-members/includes/api/api-forms.php ./wp-content/plugins/wp-members/includes/class-wp-members.php ./wp-content/plugins/wp-members/includes/legacy/dialogs.php Step1: Add a handler in api-forms.php If you have a php file called login.php then it will show this link in the failure message. Add this near the bottom of the file. ...append this function to the end of api-forms.php... 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 function my_login_failed_msg ( $ str ) { // The generated html for the login failed message // is passed to this filter as $str and includes the // formatting tags.

The QuickBooksDBXX service on Local Computer started and then stopped

The QuickBooks Database Service Just Starts and Then Stops A typical small business scenario is to run everything from their Windows Domain Controller, using something like Small Business Server, or just using a single DC in a file server and QB server role. Sometimes the QB Database server will fail to start due to the competition for port 53, that it shares with the DNS server.   The fix is to stop the DNS Server service then start up the QB services first, finally start the DNS Server service.  There is some terrible advice on Intuit's own website. It's just plain wrong.  Do not try to reinstall Quickbooks Server.  The solution is to delay the start of DNS services, and to change the service user of the QB servers to QBDataServiceUserXX
