Transcript of Video

I think that the people that are on that are discovering, how to unleash their greatness are people who have the mental resiliency and the courage to face failure, that you will fail your way to greatness.

That most people allow their fear of failure talk.

When you’re willing to fail again and again and again, when you make up your mind to become unstoppable, when you make up your mind to become a no matter what person? Then that will then give birth to a part of yourself that you don’t know right now.

Do you have the courage to act outwardly on what you see in wordly? Or will you guide dreamer?

Will you die on the verge and on the edge and up in the land of cut up water and sugar?

I’m gonna drop some on you.

 # It takes courage to be successful.

 # It is far easier not to be successful.

 # Misery will always have company.

 # Success breeds contempt.

If you don’t want to make waves, be mediocre, be normal and, fit in.

  • It takes courage to be different.
  • It takes courage to be exceptional.
  • It takes courage to be wise.
  • It takes courage to be rich.
  • It takes courage to be educated.
  • It takes courage to be knowledgeable.

Manually Moving a WordPress Site from one Server to Another

Moving a WordPress site from one server to another is a task that requires your hands to get dirty and play around with site software.

Firstly, the task is easier when you are moving a site from one domain to another if both of these domains are hosted on the same server.

It gets a little hairy if the sites are hosted on different hosts. The difficulty arises due to both sites using different server software or software that has different versions.

Most large hosting companies use custom Panels and usually don’t update as often as smaller hosting companies.
Updates tend to introduce errors for existing sites. This is another topic and we’ll just leave it at that.

The steps to follow are easy to follow and need a little bit of technical knowledge.
If you’re new to MySQL, PHP, phpmyadmin, CPanel or you don’t have the prerequisite knowledge for any of these then the task will be a hard one for you. But, it is not impossible since once upon a time I was also a novice and did not know what a hosting was. We all go through that path to learn and educate ourselves.

Talking of education it is almost free to educate yourself in many technical areas. Just Youtube any topic that interests you and you have 100’s of people who have shared their knowledge. Just like this article.

What you will need for this are: CPanel Hosting and WordPress. It is possible to move a WordPress to another Panel type but that is not covered here.

Here’s the steps in general. Details further down.

On the Site you are going to duplicate:

  1. Make a backup of your existing website and put that aside using CPanel Backup Procedure
  2. Compress and download the content directory with Filemanager and any other custom files and directories on the server.
  3. Log into PhpMyAdmin within CPanel and export the database for the site.

On the New Site You are Going To Create the Site

  1. Log into CPanel and Upload the “wp-content” from step (1) directory to the root “public_html” folder.
  2. Rename the original “content” to “wp-content–” and then uncompress the backup content.zip file you’ve just uploaded.
  3. Open phpMyAdmin and import the database from step (3).

Not finished – Hands going to get dirty here

  1. Editing the Options table in the WordPress Database and fixing settings in wp-config.php file.
  2. Refresh new site and you should have the site moved without any problems.

I would like to say that it took me less time to do the above procedure than to write this article so far.

There are many plugins and tools to do this automatically but I find it easier to do this manually allowing me total control of the whole process.

What’s on the video for the partially deaf.

School makes students poor.

PhD stands for Poor, Helpless and Desperate.

The riskiest thing you can do is go to school, learn from a fake future, put your money with financial planner, work hard for fake money, and pay a lot of taxes.

With what the Federal Reserve Bank, our Banks and our School Systems doing, it’s criminal, it’s ripping off my generation up, enough in our generation you know.

This is my book, Fake here risen, it’s fake money, fake teachers, in fake assets. It’s because all has to be fake, you have to have fake teachers. To understand fake money they have to have fake assets to buy those stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Bank assets but without fake teachers fake money and you can’t do it.

One of the best things I had is, I went to military school,  went to the flight school and I had such great teachers you know, all of them could fly. You know, so my flight instructor could fly.

What a novel idea! You know a flight instructor can fly.

But, when I was in high school, most of my teachers were terrified, they’re all cowards you know job security. Don’t make mistakes, just memorize the right answer and you’ll be safe in school. They compensate for a risk by telling you to memorize the right answer.

So in other words these kids leave school thinking, oh, if I know the right answers then there’s no risk. And it drives old guys like me crazy because everybody’s talking about Millennials.

What’s wrong with them? You know Millennials are the most highly educated generation in history. They know all the answers but they’re afraid of doing anything.

You know the biggest complaint about my generation? These Millennials know all the answers. They can’t do anything. The reason they can’t do anything is because they think that they might hurt somebody’s feelings. Might make a mistake. You know, this jsut keeps these you guys trapped in this little box.

Education is more important than before. But, you got to be careful!

I wrote the book “Fake Money, Fake Teachers and Fake Assets“. don’t listen to fake teachers. Yeah I have a friend, he teaches entrepreneurship at UC Santa Barbara. And I call him up and I say how in the world can you teach entrepreneurship? He says, well I have a master’s degree. I ask question again. What gives you the right to teach your entrepreneurship? He says, I have a master’s degree in entrepreneurship. When I say hey Doug, you and I have been friends for a long time, you’ve never started a business! You’re a fake teacher! He says, but I have all the answers.  I said yeah, but you don’t know how to start a business!

Some of the biggest faith issues all those financial planners Italian to him you know to save money why would you save money on the government’s printing money then they tell you to invest for a long term of the stock market and you guys know the stock market this ultra short term there’s high-frequency trading today long term is a split second but they’re telling you guys like my generation to keep your money in the stock market for 40 years and you have nothing left at the end of it and you look at all the pensions of the school teachers firefighters and all the guys with 401ks they’re all bankrupt because Wall Street stole their money from them you know and the Federal Reserve Bank they’re run by phd’s like my port head and PhD stands were poor helpless and desperate the Fed has not been right in years thereby worships the Federal Reserve Bank there’s a guy stealing from our pension systems listen it’s horrible what’s going on because we have all these PhDs poor helpless and desperate people who are risk averse my rich dad always said never say I can’t afford it and was my rich dad and many of my teachers subsequent to that this had lazy people always say I can’t afford it I don’t have the money that’s why they’re poor they have a poor mindset so instead of figuring out how to raise money it’s just really easy to be a loser and I call the losers if this is enough because we all have the power if we wanted to to not be poor if we learn how to raise money my poor dad might port my PhD father you always said to me says you know I’d be a rich man if I didn’t have you kids and I said well you know dad not my fault he had kids you know I mean you know I just can’t afford it because I have kids and the more he said that the angrier I got so and I went my rich at age nine did I used as well that’s why your old man’s poor because he’s lazy he thinks his PhD is gonna carry him he says everybody can say I don’t have money I can’t afford it he says that’s why he’s poor he’s lazy over my lifetime most of the projects I have started I’ve never had any man I like not having money because it forces me to think I get creative I have to educate myself I have to talk to rich guys how did you do this how did you do that how you do that and what has happened to me I mean I just turned 72 I’ve never needed money because if I need money I figure out how to raise it it’s easy to say I can’t afford it all the poor people say I can’t afford all the poor people say was taxed are rich all the poor people are saying we’ll give me a free education free food free schooling free manicures pedicures there’s laziness my opinion only the lazy people use their own money and that’s what really pissed off a lot of people up there cuz you’re calling me lazy I said yes I am because you’re the sent up a person will say I can’t afford it I can’t do that that’s the problem it’s up here most of my family said well you I can’t afford it my father Tom to say that my mother taught to say that my richest eyes would never say that the number one way to ray-ray is income as sales but they teach you sales in school but if you work for a network marketing company you learn sales so that’s why I presidential I not people hate Trump that made me to the president trumpet I the only people that recommend network marketing because in network marketing you have to go through your fear and you have to learn how to sell the reason I’m an entrepreneur is I know how to make money I know how to acquire assets I know how to use debt talk wire assets that’s real financial education not the garbage you’re teaching at school let me say one more time if you’re going to be employee or a doctor or lawyer than traditional education is really important it’s going to be an entrepreneur you don’t need to you

WordPress error: Unable to create directory uploads. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

The dreaded error:

Unable to create directory uploads. Is its parent directory writable by the server?

I’ve got my hands wrapped around my head and telling myself “how to fix this, how to fix this, how to fix this…”. After a few moments of self talk, some disillusionment and finally over to Google search landed me on a couple of sites that had given supposedly clear solutions. But, you know what even Google has lost it’s touch and provides search results that are so old it’s just not funny anymore.

Anyway, after more thought and thinking and people writing about changing directory permissions to 771 and then some even went far as 777.

Although it’s not the devils number it sure is close enough for any would be sinister hacker to come right through and help themselves.

Improper File Paths

The problem with this type of “directory uploads” has got to do with having proper paths in the settings.

It Silently Happened While Moving WordPress Sites

This week I’ve been working on moving 50 sites from one server to another. It was all done manually and without having access to SSH. I moved some websites across into the same cpanel account and thus the original uploads directory contained a path that was now totally irrelevant to the new uploads directory.

Because of the way I move WordPress sites across to another server – I fully restored the database directly into MySQL using MysqlAdmin application in Cpanel without altering any settings. Hence, the old server settings got transferred to the new server and keeping old server paths which begot this error come alive.

I did not realise it at the time that the error was there waiting to show itself at the right moment (a few moments ago). I should have thought of this while I was recreating the database and the wordpress on the new server. However, WordPress continued to work without a problem until I tried to add a new theme to the site. It then gave me this error. The error also comes up if you try to upload a media file etc. If you have a plugin that does downloads to the site then that also will not work correctly and until you remove the problem.

How to fix the “Unable to create directory uploads. Is its parent directory writable by the server?” error.

To come to the point after that rant here is the simple solution to fixing this error:

Log into your wordpress dashboard and head over to your Settings –> Media page.

On this page you will find an entry for the uploads directory “if it is set”. Otherwise it will not appear if everything is working fine.

It’s a weird problem and I’ve come across this a few times in the past.

If there is a setting for the uploads directory or path then simple erase it and save the settings.

Let us know below in the comments section if this fixed your problem.

That’s all, cheers!

How to exclude a sub-folder from WordPress control?

How to exclude a sub-folder from WordPress control?

Here is a quick fix for those who have come across this problem and looking for a solution to stop WordPress from redirecting.

If you have WordPress website with a sub folder that needs to be outside the control of WordPress then this little fix will get rid of your headache.

This requires editing the .htaccess file either from your ftp account/cpanel or via the WordPress dashboard with admin login. If you don’t know how to edit your .htaccess file from within your WordPress then search for plugins that allow you to edit this file.

It is a simple change and most websites have already a default .htaccess file.
Within the htaccess file locate the following code:

# BEGIN WordPress

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# END WordPress

Change the following line from this

RewriteRule . /index.php [L]


RewriteRule ./ /index.php [L]

and that is pretty much all you need to do. It was a life saver for me.
I wanted to use this so that I can password protect a private use folder.
I use this particular folder to store personal documents that I can view from any place or computer and I need to provide valid user login details.
If you’re using CPANEL you can set this up in the “Directory Privacy” icon.

Have a great day!

Regreening Earth with Nature

How to turn Earth back into the green

Watch the this video to learn how we can return the green back into our lands.
Deserts don’t have to be deserts. We can do it with the help of nature.
Smart researchers with conscience have a big hand in bringing forward the greener earth paradigm.
Watch it, you will enjoy this chaps vocal chords and his calm and great message to humanity.

“Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert,” begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And terrifyingly, it’s happening to about two-thirds of the world’s grasslands, accelerating climate change and causing traditional grazing societies to descend into social chaos. Savory has devoted his life to stopping it. He now believes — and his work so far shows — that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert.
