phpmyadmin 404 error Digital ocean ubuntu setup

Wanted to document a problem that is so trivial that I think would be a very common problem that most people would have due to a terrible sin of UX. So to help people who faced the same problem I did hope this would help when searching for a fix for this problem. Here I was trying to install phpmyadmin in Digitalocean on a droplet I had wordpress install as a oneclick option during the creation of the droplet. Therefore the settings are pretty standard. Installation process pretty standard as well. This was the guide i used https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-secure-phpmyadmin-on-ubuntu-16-04 btw the guide’s restart command didn’t work for me , the restart command that work was : /etc/init.d/apache2 restart 1 /etc/init.d/apache2 restart Now then I face a 404 error page when i tried to log in to my domainname/phpmyadmin. After an hour of research and on the verge of giving up I found the solution here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/306094/phpmyadmin-throws-a-404-on-opening All because i forgot to press spacebar to select apache2 and pressed “enter” which proceeded without selecting it ….. UX SIN. Anyway the fix is easy fully uninstall phpmyadmin and go through the process again . The article above suggests a reconfiguration which i tried but ran into some problems. So a fresh reinstall is a better option. sudo apt-get purge phpmyadmin 1 sudo apt-get purge phpmyadmin Once i was done I wanted to disable it. Also checkout here on a more secure way to use phpmyadmin and other options https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3795993/how-can-i-disable-the-phpmyadmin-login-page You can disable phpMyAdmin by disabling the module configuration. <span class="pln">sudo a2disconf phpmyadmin</span><span class="pun">.</span><span class="pln">conf sudo </span><span class="pun">/</span><span class="pln">etc</span><span class="pun">/</span><span class="pln">init</span><span class="pun">.</span><span class="pln">d</span><span...

Free Landing page plugins review for WordPress

Wanted a pretty landing page for wordpress that is separate from the templates. So that I can have the landing page up and edit the rest of the site while keeping the landing page separate. Having measureable metrics for the landing page would be great too. So I found 3 that I liked and started using them. Here is the comparison result/summary. You can read the details below.

Creating a custom template page for theEventsCalendar display

So I needed to integrate the way theEventsCalendar plugin was display the events with my template. Because the plugin works independently, meaning the plugin has its own way of displaying data or in this case events I could not leverage on the template’s inbuilt page builder. Instead I have to manually build the page. So First step was to create a separate template for this purpose. Again I could not leverage on the single purpose page method because it is not a typical page it is the plugins own page. So I just duplicated the default page.php template and gave it a unique name [SOURCE] [SOURCE2] I named it theEventsCalendar custom 001  and file name is  theEventsCalendar_custom_001.php Looked at the output that I wanted from other normal pages that was built by the template builder. Copy the generated HTML and paste it in the correct location. For me it is where the title was so i disabled the title and paste my html codes.    ...
