If you got an error like: “Host ‘localhost’ is not allowed to connect to this MariaDB server” you can edit the file xampp\mysql\bin\my.ini
Add this line:
skip-grant-tables after [mysqld] group.
[mysqld] skip-grant-tables port=3306 socket=/tmp/mysql.sock
After that, login to phpmyadmin and repair the users table as it mostly is corrupted.
Also try to rename :
xampp\mysql\data\ibdata1 to xampp\mysql\data\ibdata1.bak
After you login, you have to update your plugins, specially JetPack and problem will disappear.
Try the CLI update process:
1) On your terminal go into magento root folder.
2) Set magento 2 under maintenance mode php bin/magento maintenance:enable
3) Search for the correct and latest magento 2 version
composer show magento/product-community-edition 2.3.* --all | grep -m 1 versions
4) Force your composer to use the latest version
composer require magento/product-community-edition=2.3.3 --no-update
5) Update your magento 2 installation
6) After successful update Upgrade magento and compile
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
7) Disable maintenance mode and you are ready to check the correct version
php bin/magento maintenance:disable
Even I think this should be a simple checkbox in Magento Control Panel but the most simple way I found is to put a file in var folder with the name of:
If you want to allow an ip or a group of ips you simply write this list of ips in a file:
Of course if you have access to CLI you can just type:
bin/magento maintenance:enable –ip=22.214.171.124
–ip=126.96.36.199 is the ip that can access the website normally ..
if you use a shared hosting, to run the above command you have to go to the public_html folder first :
cd public_html and then run the command using php php bin/magento maintenance:enable –ip=188.8.131.52
For more information go to :
php artisan clear-compiled
php artisan optimize
composer dump-autoload -o
And these sites can minify your code
And finally, some tools to Lint your code
JSLint JSHint ESLint
If you want to make a concatenate between 2 columns inside of your select in Laravel you can simply use
Here is an example
DB::raw('CONCAT(first_name," ",last_name) as full_name')
If you want to read the content of a file in the public folder using Laravel, you can use this code
$file_name = "test.dat";
$file_url = 'public\subfolder\\'. $file_name;
$content = file_get_contents(base_path($map_url));
base_path is a helper function to generate a fully qualified path to a given file relative to the project root directory
If you want to host your website with one company and your emails in another you have to edit your domain name DNS Zone.

If you are trying to decrypt a file or a bunch of files using batch file in windows you will write something like this:
gpg --pinentry-mode=loopback --batch --yes --passphrase "abc%123" --decrypt-files *.pgp
and you put the above code in a .bat file and run it but you got an error like:
gpg: public key decryption failed: Bad passphrase
You are 1000% sure the passphrase is correct .. well the problem is in the passphrase itself as it contains a special character that needs to be escaped .. in the above example , the passphrase : “
abc%123” must be written like this: “ abc%%123” as %% is the escape of % … for a complete list of batch file escape characters , check this link
in case if you are wondering about the meaning of
–pinentry-mode=loopback it is used to prevent the gui from pooping up and asking for the passphrase.
Another important point , to make the batch option work without problem .. you have to make sure that the encrypted file extensions is *.pgp
