Flooded Sta Mesa Route

Before I go to ride my bike to work, I was able to watch the news early morning today about Sta. Mesa getting flooded due to Maynilad's broken pipe in the area. I was surprised about the news because that's my usual route to Ortigas and also when going home from work.
(some links to the photos below.)

I wanted to be early in the office today so I quickly packed up. When I got there in Sta. Mesa, I see it for myself that the flood was higher than what i saw in the TV. I was wearing my shoes for work when I bike, so I was convinced by myself to take an alternative route.

Somewhere when I was taking the alternative route, I met another member of Pinoy MTB - Facebook Group. We were both lost and so, we grouped together to find our way to work. And we did find our way back to our usual route. We said goodbyes to each other and moved on to our route.

The experience that the flooded route tells me to be prepared for an alternative route in case there is a big storm. It also showed me that I should not be afraid of anything. I just have to use my common sense, not become emotional.

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.
