From my CounterStrike Global Offence setup, I realized that hosting the HLStats server online also was hosting my phpmyadmin directory as well. As exposing the database to the outside world is very undesirable, a simple change the the Apache sites-enabled directory on Ubuntu 14.04 corrected the issue.
I currently have a certificate that provides the HTTPS functionality for this website as well as my web mail access. As there is the capability to add Subject Alternate Names (SAN) to the certificate, it was ideal to enable the existing godaddy.com certificate for the Cisco Expressway Edge server. The requirements with Cisco’s Expressway server is that a private key decryption password is not allowed, and my private key requires a password.
Drafting some new posts that included images from a DLSR camera. The uploaded images resulted in the default WordPress upload size be maxed out. Not hard to do, the default was set at 2MB.
Initially this blog was setup with https using a self signed certificate. I did always intend on updating the certificate with a “real” certificate to avoid web browsing errors. This certificate would also need to handle other sites/services at destephen.com. This is my first effort at installing certificates that needed to be recognized on everyones browsers.
