Premature end of script headers: Drupal Error

After moving servers today one of my accounts stopped working. The other 90 odd websites were fine, but one just threw up a blank white page.

What to do??

First check the error logs to see what the reason is, and this is what the apache error logs told me. Premature end of script headers: index.php. Of course don't forget that there are lots of error logs and sometimes a few sets in a few place - make sure you check the right ones.

Mass Update TTL Settings at Once Easily with WHM/Cpanel

Yesterday I moved servers and had to update the TTL settings on about 100 accounts on my server. There is no method for doing this with WHM/Cpanel but using the command line and ssh you can do this really easily in about 2 minutes... here is how.

Panda, Penguin - Will Pigeon be Next? The future of Google Algorithm Updates.

I have a theory - it could just be a crazy theory and time will probably prove me wrong, however here it goes.

Personally, only 1 of my websites was affected by Panda.

How to Make an iTunes Slider on Your Website - Including Links

The slider in the iTunes software is pretty cool, and our graphic designer at work thought so too. He had us integrate the slider into the website we built for Peace Apostolic Community in Rockhampton.

I found a cool tutorial online at Tuts Plus that was able to give me a great start but the code was incomplete. I've modified the code a little and now you can add links so the slider will take you wherever you want to go.

My House Won't Sell - Try Vendor Finance!!

In late 2009 we realised that we needed to sell one of our homes.  We owned 4 homes, 3 investment homes plus the one we lived in.  We realised that negative gearing combined with a few unforseen circumstances was taking us down.  So we listed a home on the market hoping for a quick sale to relieve the financial pressure.
