cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate

cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate

I have had this "cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate" error occur a few times now on my Windows server with my WHMCS installations. It primarily has affected payment gateways which are using curl to communicate, which in my case was Go Cardless. Not being a PHP developer, I always tend to forget the cause of the problem when it crops up, so hopefully, this will serve as a reminder to myself as well 🙂 The reason for this error is that curl needs a...

Google alienates kids & parents + How to recover files from a suspended G Suite account

Google alienates kids & parents + How to recover files from a suspended G Suite account

I was one of the early adopters of what is now known as Google G Suite and have been using since it was launched back in 2006 when it was originally called Google Apps. Like most early adopters, I started with the free Google Apps account, which was open to anyone and was originally intended for personal use. Like most people, I got it just so I could use my own domain name with Gmail. A few years later I upgraded to the paid plan, which then became Google Apps for Business and then G Suite...

Bitdefender is not safe for kids

Bitdefender is not safe for kids

I have been a BitDefender customer for many years, using it on all my devices, both personal and business and recommending it to friends and clients. For business and personal use by adults, BitDefender is an excellent security product with lots of great features and one of the top scorers in the industry for malware detection. I regularly recommend gravity zone to clients and I run it on servers I manage through my MSP business. But if you plan on using the home edition (family pack) for...

How to Prevent Bypassing CloudFlare

How to Prevent Bypassing CloudFlare

Cloudflare is a free DNS proxy service and has become the ubiquitous solution for any small website/business (as well as hackers, warez, porn or any controversial blogger sites) that want to hide their IP address and by extension, their hosting provider by hiding behind a proxy server. In addition to the anonymising proxy service, it also has a bunch of neat caching, website performance and security features and DDOS protection too which can be a super-easy way to improve the performance and...

Password managers are not just for passwords

Password managers are not just for passwords

Securely store your password and personal data There’s no doubt that LastPass has saved me a lot of time and headaches – by remembering and filling passwords for me. But what many people do not realise is that password managers like LastPass or Dashlane can be used for a lot more than just passwords. There is lots of information besides passwords that most people need to access and use in their day-to-day life, online and offline. Whether you are booking your next family holiday,...

BitDefender Parental Controls Review

BitDefender Parental Controls Review

I have been using BitDefender Total Security for some years now and as a cybersecurity, anti-malware solution it is very good and I recommend it to all my clients. In fact, it is generally considered the #1 solution is all AV tests I have seen. Sadly the same cannot be said for the parental control features they shoehorned into the product a few years ago. In fact, it is not actually part of the product, it is a completely separate installation that you have to initiate via the BitDefender...

O2 and the phone of doom

O2 and the phone of doom

You may recall from my earlier post "O2 customer service driving me insane" that I have not been having a very good experience with O2 support/customer service of late, and sadly things have not improved and if I had any hair then I would certainly be tearing it out by now, so here is my latest rant on the subject. . My last phone from O2 was a Nokia Lumia 930, which while being an overall good phone when it works, I have had ongoing problems with it and O2 and have had it replaced around 5 or...

Margate’s Dreamland back from the dead, or is that living dead ?

Margate’s Dreamland back from the dead, or is that living dead ?

Anyone from my generation or older will have heard of Dreamland. At the height of its popularity in the 1960s, when it attracted more than two million thrill-seekers a year, Dreamland boasted a wall of death run by legendary stunt motorcyclist Yvonne Stagg, which was covered in Anderson’s unsettling 1953 documentary film, O Dreamland, with its terrifying animatronic electric chair and Haunted Snail ride. In its hay day, Dreamland was at the cutting edge of fairground excitement. But by todays...

O2 customer service driving me insane

O2 customer service driving me insane

I have been a customer of O2 for many years now, my company has a business account with them, having tried out most other providers over the years, they were all truly awful when it came to customer service, and O2 seemed like the best of a bad bunch. For the most I rarely ever had to contact them, so never had much to complain about, but this all started to change back in 2013 when I started to have reasons to contact O2 customer service, and realized just how bad it was, and it seems to get...
