Easier SSH connections from Ubuntu Linux


If you’re a Linux user and you often log in to remote machines or servers, then this tutorial may save you some time. It’s a tip that user Oshunluvr from kubuntuforums.net showed me a few months ago. I’ve been using it ever since.

It will allow you to log into machines with SSH servers on custom ports, with a specified username, by typing:

ssh domain.com

Instead of:

ssh user@domain.com -p 1234

How to Install WordPress on a Raspberry Pi

WordPress on Raspberry Pi

This tutorial will show you how to take a vanilla Raspbian image and turn it into a HTTP server hosting one or more WordPress website.

I’ve previously written a few bits and pieces about WordPress, but I’ve never actually covered how to install it on a Raspberry Pi until now.

This was one of the first things I did with my Pi, so I’m going to assume you know very little and try to be as detailed as possible.

The actual WordPress bit is very quick and easy once the ground work is done: wordpress.org has a 5 minute installation guide, but it doesn’t tell you how to do the difficult bits! This tutorial will cover everything you need, from the ground up.
