Detect if a Domain is using WordPress

Wordpress Detector

Today I wrote a small web application which detects whether the entered url is using wordpress as it’s back-end or not.  I as actually doing this code for doing a penetration testing against one server with many hosts, so I thought to create a UI and publish it on my labs. You guys can check it out here and try it against different urls. It is pretty accurate.

upgrading to php 5.6 in vesta cp

Yesterday I was told to set up a new php server in company for some small project. I did not really want to set everything up manually as the person who will be using this server is not geeky. So by looking around I came to find Vesta Control Panel aka VestaCP. it sounds lightweight and promising considering its a free tool. well of course it is so simple and it can never be compared to things like cPanel, but for this kind of setup it seems to be good.

The only con about this panel is the file manager. basically there is no file manager and if you want to have it you got to pay. but who cares. we can always use FTP.

One issue is that the current version of vestacp installs php 5.4 by default which is too out dated for our current apps. most of the new CMSes and Frameworks such as Laravel require php  >= 5.5. So what I had to do was to upgrade the PHP version to 5.6 from 5.4.

In this particular case I’m running CentOS 7.

By default php 5.6 is not in the repository of cent os and you need to be adding some repo like epel or remi. Vesta will bring remi repository for you.

to upgrade all installed php tools on your server from 5.4 to 5.6 run following command:

If you found that you do not have remi repo on your machine you can get it from links below depending on the cent os version you are using:

Remi For CentOs 5 / Remi For CentOs 6 / Remi For CentOs 7

You can find other links to remi at here.

Hope this helps.

Just got Android Wear 1.4 on my Moto 360 2nd Gen

Today morning I woke up by taking off my moto 360 from the charging dock after playing a while with my phone on the bed, and it was when I saw the message on the screen saying software update is available and swipe to upgrade. Well I was too excited. I knew it is not going to be some minor update version. I knew it is going to be 1.4. I followed the upgrade instruction right away, the phone gone restarted and I was really excited to check out the new features.

moto360 AndroidWear 1.4

it is not a long time that I have this watch and it is great but in some points I could feel performance issues and lag in the menus. That was kinda disappointing but I can confirm this update has fade all those lag issues away. The UI is extremely responsive and nice.

There is not much of difference in the UI. the icon to set the watch in do not disturb mode is kinda bigger now. the one that you see by swiping from top of the screen to bottom. Yeah what we call it quick settings. and the Google now Icon now is the Mic icon same with the phone instead of the Red G. that is all that I can say about changes in the UI. the rest is mostly similar to past.

There is a new cool feature in settings app to control permissions that app can have over your watch sensors and data. Just like what has been introduced in Android marshmallow now you can restrict applications to access certain data on your watch such as the storage or the sensors.

There are 5 New gestures introduced with this update. to scroll up, down, get into a card and  closing them and also closing everything on the screen and showing the home screen with a hand gesture. this is a cool change and I’m happy about it.

Well that’s all that I found out myself after doing the upgrade. I’ll be checking out doze and other features and will write up about them if I found something cool.

a Week with Arrow Launcher

It’s been a week that I received my new Moto X Pure edition. One of the first things that I was planning to do when I got the phone was trying out Arrow launcher. The Android launcher from Microsoft. Before anything I really admire how Microsoft does dedicate time to develop softwares for other platforms like iOS and Android, and is not following the dirty game that Google is Playing.

I really hate the fact that Google is denying all Windows Phone users and not developing any official app for Gmail, Youtube or … for em.

Anyway, Lets get to where I started. one of the first things that I wanted to try on this Phone was Arrow Launcher. I have tried to install it on my previous phone (Moto G 1st Gen) but to be honest the experience was not that Good.

I can blame it on the low hardware specifications of my old phone but yet it could be better, just like how other launchers like Nova or CM were lightweight and Optimized enough to run well on it. again lets not go there, I’m going to review this launcher in a proper environment where there is no hardware limitation that cause sluggishness on its experience.

Memory usage

The launcher itself uses around 60-80MB of ram most of the time. the memory stats on the phone shows in highest memory usage it was consuming around 180MB on my phone.

User interface

Categorizing the home screens is handy. at first I felt like limited. but I realized I do not need any more than 1 screen with my icons laying on them. The fact that the launcher keep tracks on the most used applications and sort them on the applications home screen is nice.

Arrow Launcher

But yet there are some things that could be done much better in my opinion.

  • The sorting of the apps is too fast. I know a single run can change in arrow’s stats about which app has been used more compared to others, but believe me you do not want to see your icon escape when you are pressing it because the arrow is reorganizing it on the screen. This happens quite number of times to me. when I tried to open an app and the icon just moved away. I think it would be better if they do all these organizing tasks in the background.
  • The home screen titles cannot be removed. I really like that I have a home screen for each purpose, lets say apps, widgets, reminders or people. But I really wish I could hide the title of my Widget home screen. Right now my main home screen is the widget one which I placed a clock the top-center of it. but the fact that I have to see the word “widgets” on top of my clock is kind of sucky, anyway I decided to bear with it. that is just some wish I have in me.

other than this working with Arrow is very simple and straight forward. It does everything you need in a simple form. The Bing daily wallpaper is also a good thing to help with your old and boring wallpapers.

Overall in term of design and effects arrow is nice, at least to me. it is something that I always need in a single package.

Bottom line, Good job Microsoft.
