WordPress.com and WordPress.org

Tags

WordPress is a publishing platform that makes it easy for anyone to publish online, and proudly powers millions of websites. It comes in two flavors: the fully hosted WordPress.com, and the self-hosted version available at WordPress.org.

WordPress.com
Focus on your beautiful content, and let us handle the rest.
WordPress.org
Get your hands dirty, and host your website yourself.
Premium hosting, security, and backups are included. You can even upgrade to a custom domain, like YourGroovyDomain.com. You’ll need to find a host, and perform backups and maintenance yourself. We offer VaultPress for security and backups.
Choose from hundreds of beautiful themes. Make it your own with Custom Design. Install custom themes. Build your own with PHP and CSS.
Integrate your site with Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and other social networks. Install a plugin, like Jetpack, to enable sharing functionality on your site.
Popular features like sharing, stats, comments, and polls are included. There’s no need to install plugins. Install plugins to extend your site’s functionality.
Personal support and the WordPress.com forums are always available. Visit the WordPress.org support forums for assistance.
You must register for an account on WordPress.com and abide by our Terms of Service. No registration with WordPress.org is required.

WordPress is a community-driven project that’s developed by and for people like you. Many thousands of people from around the world contribute to the project, and many millions of websites are powered by it. From large company websites to personal blogs, and everything in between, everyone can publish with WordPress.

There are two ways that you can get started with WordPress. You can host a WordPress installation on your own server, or you can host your site here at WordPress.com and let us handle the technical bits.

Hosting your own WordPress site can be fun and rewarding, but it also requires some technical knowledge and places more responsibility on you, the publisher. You can download the WordPress software for free at http://wordpress.org, but it must be installed on a web server before it will work. You will need to research and install your own themes and plugins. Many hosting providers offer a one-click installation of WordPress — here are a few examples. If you’re looking for a web development agency that specializes in building beautiful WordPress sites, check out the CodePoet Directory.

WordPress.com is different. Here at WordPress.com, you don’t have to download software, pay for hosting, or manage a web server. You can instead focus on creating wonderful content, and let us handle the rest!

WordPress.com is a great choice for bloggers, photographers, artists, plumbers, doctors, restaurateurs — almost anyone. However,  techies that prefer to maintain full control over their code, should consider hosting their own WordPress installation. We provide a large number of themes and built-in plugin functionality so you won’t need to upload your own.

Publishing your website is always free here at WordPress.com. And many excellent premium upgrades are available to help you supercharge your site. These upgrades let you use a custom domain (like YourGroovyDomain.com), extensively customize the appearance of your site, upload HD video, and lots more.

WordPress.com is a commercial enterprise owned by Automattic, a company started by the founding developer of WordPress and staffed by full-time developers, designers, and support engineers. Automatticians (employees of Automattic) regularly contribute back to the WordPress software so that the entire community can benefit.

wp_securitykey

WordPress security keys and salts come by default with your wordpress installation and it works cool, but to make it stronger you can add new keys. You can see your wordpress security keys and salts in wp-config.php file that is in your main wordpress directory. Below is the sample for wordpress security keys and salts that you see in your wp-config.php

/**#@+
 * Authentication Unique Keys and Salts.
 *
 * Change these to different unique phrases!
 * You can generate these using the {@link https://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/salt/ WordPress.org secret-key service}
 * You can change these at any point in time to invalidate all existing cookies. This will force all users to have to log in again.
 *
 * @since 2.6.0
 */
define('AUTH_KEY',         '/hHrAb@zT|.-,+5+6d+p/vgvoBo%^_uByCSRF5s}|X$}oKnV.6QeS%Z7 +[&b^Mq');
define('SECURE_AUTH_KEY',  'bD- +{BOSiGR{cazC**g%UZ~evg4Fi;gldyEZwo |$?Sr0mCg|XB]=*wk^95/(k+');
define('LOGGED_IN_KEY',    'urr!,9Md+:tv0LG0unbD{jE{/Wb$xDd2oE$db|F#:}-yhU}_q-~i{$%^B*');
define('AUTH_SALT',        '.uXW!]|5D)WYza(*Bfv@c,WeHuZpi+/*cOQM;anz]Wn@$JR:s}9Y%RW||[)|N1e6');
define('SECURE_AUTH_SALT', 'K=[42 K20RoEiyq*k7$AVL+_S4veav^jd]2u.^#Ku-s)G>6xP+!F[=9;CPpaqIP*)P&LoOkNu#}_>H2mSu]ZO?|fu%kt9QnZWg)D3h$||up77n3(q?w}!-Gb');

/**#@-*/

Don’t copy this key instead generate and grab the whole variables from wordpress secret key generator. Now paste the generated keys in your wp-config.php file accordingly. Now save the file and you don’t need to remember these variables anymore. Generate these keys once again and add it accordingly in your wp-config.php just in case if you recovered your site from a serious hack.

One more thing if your any users were logged in to your wordpress dashboard then they will be asked to login again.

Hope this article helped you with securing your wordpress site using wordpress security keys and salts.

Manual Updating WordPress

Tags

update-wp1

  1. Get the latest WordPress zip (or tar.gz) file
  2. Unpack the zip file that you downloaded.
  3. Deactivate plugins.
  4. Delete the old wp-includes and wp-admin directories on your web host (through your FTP or shell access).
  5. Using FTP or your shell access, upload the new wp-includes and wp-admin directories to your web host, in place of the previously deleted directories.
  6. Upload the individual files from the new wp-content folder to your existing wp-content folder, overwriting existing files. Do NOT delete your existing wp-content folder. Do NOT delete any files or folders in your existing wp-content directory (except for the one being overwritten by new files).
  7. Upload all new loose files from the root directory of the new version to your existing wordpress root directory.

NOTE – you should replace all the old WordPress files with the new ones in the wp-includes and wp-admin directories and sub-directories, and in the root directory (such as index.php, wp-login.php and so on). Don’t worry – your wp-config.php will be safe.

Be careful when you come to copying the wp-content directory. You should make sure that you only copy the files from inside this directory, rather than replacing your entire wp-content directory. This is where your themes and plugins live, so you will want to keep them. If you have customized the default or classic themes without renaming them, make sure not to overwrite those files, otherwise you will lose your changes. (Though you might want to compare them for new features or fixes..)

Lastly you should take a look at the wp-config-sample.php file, to see if any new settings have been introduced that you might want to add to your own wp-config.php.

Increase Chances of Success

IVF-Success-300x198

Did you know that you can increase chances of success by consciously choosing the right words? It’s true! Let’s say you’re motivated, excited even, to create change in your life. You’ve even gone so far as to put your well-formed goals down in writing. From there, you’ve determined your first steps to begin the process of changing your eating habits and exercising more. You’ve got enormous enthusiasm and know exactly what it is you’ re going to do. You choose your goal tomorrow, and then inadvertently cripple your success before you even start. You say, ” I’ll try.”

increase chances of success What does “I’ll try” mean? It means you’ve given yourself an out. Should some obstacle surface, you now have a built-in escape route that gets you off the hook. The word presupposes failure. It lacks intention and confidence. You are sowing doubt in your own mind. It says, “Alright, I’ll give it a go, but I can’t really see it working out.”
Now observe what is feels like to sat “I am”. For example, “I am now committed to feeling good by honoring my decision to walk 20 minutes today.” If it doesn’t feel right, then you’ve selected a goal that is something other than your natural first step. Back up and find the action step you are ready to undertake. It doesn’t matter how small and insignificant it may seem at the time. You’ re better off starting with something teeny- tiny and achieving success, than starting with something you already know you’ re not ready for. The wise Lao-Tzu once started, “A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” Make sure you are able to complete your first step.

Success-principles-education-through-leadership

Perhaps having revised your initial starting point, again notice what it feel like to say, “I am now”. This phrase directs you and says that you have power and intention. It says that you believe in what you are saying and you will find a way to make it happen. You’ve made a commitment to yourself that you’ve chosen to honor. It says that you will find a way to get it done even if things get in the way. It means that even if difficulties pop up, you’ll find some way to stick to your intent.

increase chances of success
Once you find a plan of action that seems doable, forget trying to do it. To try to do something is to not do it. Instead, declare whole-heartedly, “I am now achieving this!”

Make your success inevitable.
