  • Goodbye Ibuildings, hello Egeniq

  • Easy subdomains with mod_rewrite

    Because I like to play with a lot of projects and code, I create subdomains for almost every day. Instead of going through the hassle of creating a CNAME or A record for every subdomain, creating an Apache vhost file and enabling it and creating the necessary directory structure, I figured there’s an easier […]

  • Setting up phpUnderControl

    On a regular basis, I get contacted by people who want to install phpUnderControl but don’t really know how to set up their projects and use the features provided by phpUnderControl completely. So, aside from providing a quick-and-easy setup guide for cruisecontrol and phpUnderControl, I’ll share the setup scripts I have here and hope it’s […]

  • Dutch PHP Conference 2009 dates!

    As ever, I’m excited for a new year, and with that comes a new year of PHP conferences. Last year, the Dutch PHP Conference really amazed me with their speakers, talks, organization and location.
