How to upgrade roundcubemail! From 1.1.1 to 1.3.3

This day we make update update to new version roundcubemail-1.3.3

    1. First step  make backup of actual version.
cp -R -p webmail_old/ /root/work/webmail_old-20171221
mysqldump -uroot -p yourpassword --routines --single-transaction your_roundcube_db > /etc/sqldump/your_roundcube_db.dump.sql

2. Second step download new version.


3. Unarhive and test if you have all you need to run

tar -zxvf roundcubemail-1.3.3-complete.tar.gz -C /path/to/folder/
( ex: tar -zxvf roundcubemail-1.3.3-complete.tar.gz -C /var/www/html/ )
read file roundcubemail-1.3.3/UPGRADING for REQUIREMENTS and roundcubemail-1.3.3/INSTALL

4. Final step, upgrade roundcubemail.

roundcubemail-1.3.3/bin/ webmail_old/
Upgrading from 1.1.1. Do you want to continue? (y/N)

Tips after update:
a. Check .htaccess settings (some php settings could become required)
b. If you’re using build-in addressbook, run indexing script /bin/
c. When upgrading from version older than 0.6-beta you should make sure
your folder settings contain namespace prefix. For example Courier users
should add INBOX. prefix to folder names in main configuration file.
d. Change layout in file  roundcubemail-1.3.3/config/

// Interface layout. Default: 'widescreen'.
//  'widescreen' - three columns
//  'desktop'    - two columns, preview on bottom
//  'list'       - two columns, no preview
$config['layout'] = 'widescreen';

default come with ‘widescreen’ but I like ‘desktop’.
and ‘show_images‘ change to 1.

// display remote inline images
// 0 - Never, always ask
// 1 - Ask if sender is not in address book
// 2 - Always show inline images
$config['show_images'] = 0;

Enjoy !

SteemIT tips

A few tips for exponential growth

The content you publish stays in the new feed only for a few seconds – no matter if you are old on the platform or not. You need to get more active followers. To do that, begin writing by having in mind some of the below advices:

1. Write an introduction post about yourself. Use for it the tags #introduceyourself and #steemit to gain more visibility.
2. The title, the first photo and first phrase will make the followers to read your post or not. Pay attention to them.
3. Emotions. Keep in mind that people react to emotions. Choose wisely your words – you might be surprised. This is a social media platform, so originality, creativity and emotions are key factors for your success.
4. Do not copy-paste content – it doesn’t bring a lot of followers and you might also get flagged for plagiarism unless you mention the source.
5. Tags. Select correctly the tags and use all 5 options allowed – you need to become visible. Use the main category that fits your article (e.g. use animals instead of dogs – if you’re article is about a dog, nature instead of landscapes etc).
6. Follow people who share similar interests with you. Do not ask people to follow you. Most probably, they won’t do it and even if they will press follow, they won’t upvote/promote your posts if they have different views/passions/writing style. You can also get flagged for this kind of behavior.
7. Write about things you really like rather than articles about stuffs that are trendy. You will put a lot more passion in it and people will notice that fact.
You need to build relationships. The more you get involved, the easier will be to get on top. Upvote, comment, resteem and follow others.
Join some challenges on the platform – there are quite a few interesting ones at the moment.
8. Last, but not least – enjoy being here. It’s a great community with a huge potential. Good things will come for those who are tenacious.

This post it is just for myself to remember rule !

Introducere plata anuala la domeniul .ro

Începand cu 1 iulie 2017 se introduce plata anuala la domeniile .ro, eu zic ca este un lucru foarte bun si îl asteptam de mult.

Pentru început cei care au un domeniu .ro sau mai multe cu o vechime mai mare de 5 ani pana acum vor trebui sa achite noua taxa anuala în perioada 1 iulie 2017 – 30 septembrie 2017 daca nu domeniul va fi liber pentru fi luat de altcineva.

Daca ai cumparat un domeniu .ro în urma cu 3 ani trebuie sa mai astepti înca 2 ani pana cand începe perioada de plata anuala pentru domeniu, deci practic ai o valabilitate de 5 ani apoi începi sa achiti anual domeniul.

Nu este precizat pretul care trebuie platit dar banuiesc ca va fi în jur de 40 ~ 50 lei pe an. Informatia despre pret este doar o banuiala si nu poate fi luata în considerare.
