wget replacement in MAC OS X Server

By BXTra | Mon, 05/02/2011 - 10:27

I have a MAC OS X Server and would like to be able to use "wget" command to download some file using Terminal. However, wget doesn't come with it. So, I checked on Google and found an article about using Curl as a replacement for wget. What you have to do is run command below in Terminal :

echo 'alias wget="curl -O"' >> ~/.bash_profile

Then, log out and login again. Now, you can use "wget" command to download file as you normally do. For example, I ran

wget http://pecl.php.net/get/APC-3.1.7.tgz

It will looks like this :

Drupal 6 + Ubercart 2.4 : Display all orders in Order History

By BXTra | Sun, 04/24/2011 - 23:29

Our online store doesn't have real time stock online due to integrated software with POS doesn't finish yet. So, we allow customer to place an order, then, contact them back if we really have those items in stock. We also keep those items waiting for them to pay. The problem is that, many times, customer that placed an order with us just don't want to pay at that time. They ignore it until we cancel that order. Then, they place another order a week later or so. That would be ok if it happens a couple times.

Replace Drupal Search Box with Google Adsense Custom Search Module in Drupal 6 + Zen Theme

By BXTra | Fri, 02/18/2011 - 19:56

Drupal search doesn't work well with International language and after a couple years of using it, I decided to try Google Adsense Custom Search Engine. Well, at first, I would like to try just Google Custom Search Engine (CSE) but after reading from a few webpages, they said that both of them are the same. Google CSE will generate regular advertising while Google Adsense CSE will generate advertising that will share some revenue with the website owner. So, why use Google CSE if Google Adsense CSE can do the same while you may get some revenue. (Even it's just a little)

[HOW-TO] Prevent Hotlink in Drupal 6 + Apache

By BXTra | Tue, 02/15/2011 - 00:37

As far as I can remember, to prevent hotlink in Drupal is not that easy. If you search website to look for prevent hotlink, you will find a lot of them to use with .htaccess file. But those are not for Drupal. You can't just use it in Drupal .htaccess file, that won't work. However, I have a set of code that work great. Actually, I have this code long time ago but I can't remember where I got it from. Thanks for the guy that provide it. Too bad that I didn't save link at that time.

So, now, here is what we have to do :

[HOW-TO] Config Nginx to work with Drupal 6

By BXTra | Mon, 02/14/2011 - 18:41
Yesterday, I've tried to setup Nginx as a Reverse Proxy for Apache - Worker MPM base webserver. I found that it doesn't help my server performance as I expected. So, I decided to try to set up Nginx to be a Webserver to see if Nginx can give me a better performance or not. I found a sample set up for Drupal website on Nginx web and it looks like it's pretty easy to set it up. So, I tried it. Just copy the code below into your configuration.
