Set port 995 for incoming email and port 465 for outgoing email – put them into firewall (Inbound and Outbound rules) in Advanced Firewall settings
Strange behaviour – it just stopped working 10 days ago and after a long search found a solution in specifying additional parameters in SSL connection, so working example should be like this:
$mail = new PHPMailer();
$mail->SMTPDebug = 2;
$mail->SMTPAuth = true;
$mail->SMTPSecure = 'ssl';
$mail->SMTPOptions = array
'ssl' => array
'verify_peer' => false,
'verify_peer_name' => false,
'allow_self_signed' => true
$mail->Host = "smtp.gmail.com";
$mail->Port = 465;
$mail->Username = GOOGLE_SMTP_USERNAME;
$mail->Password = GOOGLE_SMTP_PASSWORD;
$mail->Subject = "Test";
$mail->Body = "hello";
echo "Mailer Error: " . $mail->ErrorInfo;
echo "Message has been sent";
catch (phpmailerException $e)
$errors = $e->errorMessage();
catch (Exception $e)
$errors = $e->getMessage();
You probably accidentally deleted some important files more then once. It is especially sensitive when it comes to photos from your family trip and when you deleting by instinct with SHIFT+Delete (avoiding Recycle Bin). I did that today and I needed some simple data recovery software. I remembered that there is File Scavenger who can restore accidentally deleted files and I installed it. Scanned the drive, found my photos and when I wanted to recover them I found out that I need to buy the licence for 55$. I didn’t like that so I decided to find free solution and found Recuva, free alternative for the same job. You don’t need commercial version and free version is just fine. It does the job perfectly!
I sometimes really hate Windows. When you do obligatory updates sometimes it takes hours for operating system to settle down and stop using CPU and memory like crazy.
One of these processes are mscorsvw.exe and ngen.exe which do some .NET assemblies optimization. I read about a lot of angry posts about these processes and that it takes hours “to optimize” and during these hours your server and services on it are suffering (and you need to be clever when finding explanations to your clients).
Follow these steps:
- Navigate to the following location in Windows Explorer: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319
- Run an elevated command prompt and change the current directory to the following directory
- Type ngen.exe executequeueditems, and press ENTER
- Wait until you receive the following message at the command prompt: All compilation targets are up to date.
This annoying processes stopped but now TiWorker.exe is taking his time and eating the CPU and Memory and it looks like it will take 3-4 hours. Yikes! I really hate Windows programmers for this hidden background CPU and Memory eaters.
I faced today strange problem that I could not connect to Windows server through Remote Desktop Connection. When I click “Connect” it disconnect me immediately. Restarting the server didn’t helped.
Here is the simple trick how you can connect…
- Open RDC dialog and click on Show Options
- Go to Advanced tab and choose under If server authentication fails option Connect and don’t warn me
- You are now successfully connected after pressing the Connect button
Glad to hear if this saved you day. You can Tweet this solution so help someone else.
There are a lot of system stuff that just eat important space in Windows on disk C (if you have SSD and smaller C partition you don’t want to run out of space).
The best way is to create a junction (symbolic link) and to move some big folder to another partition (you need to have one first).
By doing this Windows will be fooled because you will get the same path but it will be shortcut (pointer) to another real location.
To do this move completely chosen folder to another partition and create symbolic link like this:
mklink /j c:\windows\MyMovedFolder d:\MyMovedStuff\MyMovedFolde
Sometimes you want to create folder alias for your website like this: /images to be mapped to /home/your_account/public_html/images.
To do this, you need to edit Apache httpd.conf file which is located at /etc/httpd/conf
It is clever to put all aliases in one file in the same directory and name them aliases.conf and then only to reference this file from httpd.conf.
You will include aliases.conf in httpd.conf like this:
You define alias in aliases.conf file like this:
Alias /images /home/your_account/public_html/images
