Gmail With Multiple POP Clients

I got a complain from email user that they did not receive email from some of their contact. I guessed it must be caused by spam filter in the mail server. I hosted company’s email at ISP. ISP’s webmail also did not have a Bulk folder, so email suspected as spam will be permanently deleted. Therefore I move all emails to GMail and use their Google Application service.

The problem came when I need to access email from several mail clients. They did not receive all messages, only a part of it. The solution can be achieved from help center. For a short, you just need to set POP username from: [email protected] to recent:[email protected] and set leave all messages in the server. “Recent:” prefix is to fetches the last 30 days of mail, regardless of whether it’s been sent to another POP client already.

To change new server’s hostname from intranet2… Read Article →

Can’t Connet To MySQL Server

Installation run well and I could browse MySQL database from phpMyAdmin. I added user who can connect remotely (anyhost) but I didn’t test it. The next day he complained me because he can not connect to MySQL due to an error (Error code: 2003).

How To Fix WordPress 2.6 Missing Categories

A friend of mine got a problem with his newly upgrade Wordpress (2.6.2) that is missing categories. The problem occured randomly. If the categories showed correctly and then he clicked it, there was no post assosiated (404 Not Found).

Thanks to Google. There are so many people faced the same problem and they have solutions also. Funponsel.com gave a quick solution to fix the problem.

You just need to run this query:

UPDATE wp_term_taxonomy,wp_terms SET wp_term_taxonomy.description = wp_terms.name WHERE wp_term_taxonomy.term_id = wp_terms.term_id
