In this post I’m going to be writing briefly about how to configure your virtual hosts in XAMPP. However, because this is only brief, I’m going to make a couple of assumptions as to how your environment is setup:
- Your local server runs on port 80
- You can confidently modify system files
- Your primary operating system is Windows
One of my aspirations, if you will, is to be able to record, produce and upload YouTube video’s and have a semi-popular channel. Now don’t get me wrong, every one wants to be famous at one point or another – but I don’t want the glory of being a popular figure for people. I literally just want to upload content that people can enjoy.
Recently, I’ve ran into an issue in which I’ve needed any posts published on a WordPress website to automatically be pushed to another WordPress website. It’s not amazingly difficult to fathom, but it’s a very useful piece of code. This post is only covering the raw basics of how to remotely publish by interfacing with a remote website’s XML-RPC API, but it’s a good snippet to have.
Well, I’ve finally setup a blog. To be 100% honest, WordPress probably isn’t something that I’m going to stay with for an extended period of time – I just needed something online for the time being until I’ve gotten around to developing something I like. Don’t get me wrong, WordPress is a fantastic platform and I’m happy to be one of the many developers that use it… but it can become boring when you work with it in your day-to-day life. Hence why this site, when I have the time, will receive a complete overhaul to present me with more of a challenge than WordPress does.
Regardless, I’ll keep posting my opinions, views and [possibly] code snippets whether anyone reads them or not!
