If you are in an environment that makes it difficult to get a normal SSH connection to your server, but allows HTTP (e.g., restrictive network), this could be useful. As long as you are careful about security when you set it up.
The official 10th anniversary of the release of WordPress is May 27, 2013. It has been an amazing 10 years, during which WordPress evolved from a simple blogware to a very full-featured CMS (Content Management System), used to power some of the biggest and most popular web sites on the internet. All over the world, people are planning celebrations. As much as I like a good party, I thought this would also be a good time to celebrate WordPress by actually using WordPress — for blogging.
So much of our content sharing these days tends to be via centralized “social” platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Tumblr, etc., that some of us neglect our blogs. I know I’m guilty of that. But this anniversary is a good excuse for the WordPress community to take a few minutes to consider their time with our favorite website building tool. Here’s what I propose…

Thing I learned today at CoderFaire Atlanta:
If you are using Apache with the worker MPM model (or the experimental event worker) under Linux, you can probably improve your memory usage. By default, there is an 8MB stack size per thread, which turns out to be overkill. If you change the size to 1MB, you can save a ton of memory:
# If this isn’t set, the OS’ default will be used (8 MB)
# which is way more than necessary
This should help my server do less memory thrashing when I get traffic spikes.
