Why I bike

I read the news today that Howie Severino, a news anchor of GMA 7 News, had an accident while biking his way to work. He said that the driver is claiming to be in the right way, but later apologetic. No major injuries, only a cut on his leg.

This affected me so much because, I also bike to work from Monday to Friday. Even a reporter biking to work can get into an accident.

Biking is beneficial for me. It helps me save more from my salary. Before, I used to ride the LRT and MRT just to go to the office. For 2 work weeks, I get to spend about 800 pesos for the LRT and MRT fares.

Biking also helps me move and sweat more before sitting in front of the computer. I drink lots of water everyday. My last blood exam revealed to me that my uric acid levels dropped after only a month of biking. I really hope to improve my waist line as well after few more months.

Masteral Degree in Information Technology at AMAOEd

Hi everyone! I am back. No, I just had no ideas in mind what to blog about. I am thinking about setting up new blog for movie reviews, so watch out for it.

I currently applied for the Masteral Degree in Information Technology at AMAOEd, and I got accepted. I am excited to finish this program and I hope to learn so many things from this program. I need to manage my time very well now, because I also work full-time as a web developer.

Did you also take a masteral degree? Can you share your experience? Please post your experience as comment below. I want to know more about how you manage to finish the program.

Setting up a Wordpress Site NGINX and MySQL

I am writing this blog post to remind myself how I was able to set up a wordpress site running on VirtualBox, Ubuntu 16.04, NGINX and MySQL as its database server.

Firstly, I forgot my root's password to access MySQL, so I googled for a way to reset the password.
I realized that there is a difference in resetting the password depending on the version of the mysql server.  URL:

When I was able to recover access in MySQL, I proceeded on to setup PHP 7 FPM to run with NGINX.  I already installed PHP 7 before, so I only need to setup PHP7-FPM. To set up a socket connection with NGINX, you must have a pool for every site.
Important to modify in a pool config are:
user, group, listen. the listen config must be the same socket file in absolute path in the NGINX config.
user and group (I don't know why) is a linux user and group.
