Certbot and Cloudflare DNS Plugin

I learnt today that I can run Certbot to create and renew Let’s Encrypt SSL/TLS for domains/web sites not hosted on the same machine – a fact I didn’t know before today.

Also, because Certbot can be used to manage Let’s Encrypt certificates for domain names hosted elsewhere, there is no requirement for the system running Certbot to have a web server like Apache/httpd running (for domain verification purposes).

Compress your PHP-FPM pages

Since the recent upgrade to gidblog.com, this web site is currently being hosted by various Docker containers. One of the Docker containers used is, of course, one derived from a Docker image like php:7-fpm-alpine.

I must confess that this is my first endeavour using PHP-FPM with Apache. All these years I have only been using the Apache module: mod_php to handle all my PHP web pages.

WordPress Plugin for Google AdSense Auto Ads

I will show you how I inserted Google AdSense Auto Ads JavaScript ad code to this web site today.

The Google AdSense Auto Ads ad code is only a single line long, so it was unnecessary to get overly complicated with the plugin or PHP code.

WordPress Plugin for Google Analytics

I will show you how I inserted Google Analytics tracking code to this web site today.

I chose to write a WordPress plugin to accomplish this task but since I only manage 2 WordPress sites, I didn’t develop it with a lot of bells and whistles.
