WordPress: Unable To Upload To The Media Library After Moving Servers

I recently moved a WordPress site from one location on a server to another location on the same server for a client. Everything seemed to work fine after following the directions in this article I had previously published. That article was specifically published for changing the domain that points to the WordPress site which could include simply changing the domain only or actually moving the site to a new server or new location on the same server and a new domain. If you are performing the second of those two options you may also need to update the “upload_path” depending on the configuration of the new server and if the paths are the same as they were on the initial server the WordPress site was installed on.

Django Media Files Not Displaying In Apache Using FastCGI

I got stuck trying to display the Django media files from a Django project served using FastCGI configured in Apache. I thought for sure that the issue must be something with Apache so I tried a ton of different configuration variables. I wanted to share in case anyone else runs into the CSS and image files not showing up for the Django admin site. If the admin login to your Django project does not look similar to the below then the media files are not being loaded properly.

Play a Video From iPod Touch or iPhone on Your Computer

Playing a video that is located on your iPod Touch or your iPhone on your computer is easy. The great thing about this is you can download many podcasts or other media programs in high definition so if you have a large monitor or your PC is connected to your TV you can now easily play media from your iPhone or Touch on your TV. The main problem I had in making all of this happen is the fact that I typically sync my iPod Touch to my laptop but I have a PC in my office that is connected to my TV where I like to watch some of the podcasts I have downloaded. Below I mention how play media from your iDevice on your computer as well as how to load data from multiple computers onto your iPod Touch or iPhone.
