WordPress Geo Redirection using Cloudflare

WordPress Geo Location Redirection fast SEO friendly So the problem for us started out as this. We have a WordPress website that has content that is location specific. This content has been setup in WordPress using Elementor with essentially a duplication of the core site pages like contact-us, about-us, homepage, services, etc that had specific content if someone was in Europe vs Australia. So for example, the home page has images related to either Australia or UK . How this was created Kind of a different story than the context of this post, but within Elementor Header we have created 4 headings. These headings use the flags with set links in them to allow someone to redirect to a URL that will show UK content or not. Each of the 4 headers have one of two menus, either a UK menu with links to all the UK content specific pages,… Read More »WordPress Geo Redirection using Cloudflare

cPanel AutoSSL certificate expiry on Date – Cloudflare Enabled domain

CPanel AutoSSL Did Not Renew on a Domain with Cloudflare configured You may receive some warning in an email from your cPanel with error that look something like this after you have enabled and and moved your DNS servers over to Cloudflare. This occurs after enabling the option in Cloudflare to always use HTTPS. Errors in this case in cPanel reported:  DNS DCV: No local authority: “domain.com.au”; HTTP DCV: “cPanel (powered by Sectigo)” forbids DCV HTTP redirections. The Fix It is likely that you have enabled the feature in Cloudflare to “Always Use HTTPS” (which you would think is safe) but in this case it will cause this error. It needs to be disabled for a simple fix.

Reduce Exchange 2016 Mailbox Database White Space

Reduce Exchange 2016 Mailbox Database size using Eseutil. In this post I will walk through the steps of reducing the Exchange Mailbox Database size, However the method of reducing the Mailbox Database size varies from different administrators. If you can afford to have downtime on a Mailbox Database then these steps would work for you. Some Exchange Administrators  and in most cases myself ,will simply just create another new Mailbox Database and Move Mailboxes from one Database to another and then delete the old one. For the purpose of this post , I will be using a build in tool from Microsoft called Eseutil.   Eseutil is a command line utility that works with Extensible Storage Engine (ESE), database (.edb) files, streaming (.stm) files, and log (.log) files associated with an Information Store, in a given Storage Group. The tool can be run on one database at a time from… Read More »Reduce Exchange 2016 Mailbox Database White Space

It could well be that it also prompts with non apple devices, we did not bother to test. The issue likely arises from the situation where office 365 services were… Read More »iPhone Add Email Account Exchange asks to sign in to Office 365
