I'm traveling light, it's au revoir…


  • I took a stab at testing TiDB with WordPress today, but since the setup went past the famous five-minute mark, I’ve decided to jot down a note for myself and those who try to use TiDB with WordPress.

  • Yesterday I’ve upgraded one of my servers that is running on Ubuntu 18.04; since it’s reaching EOL it’s better to perform timely updates. While upgrading the OS, why not upgrade MariaDB, right? So, I’ve upgraded it to 10.6.12 and this morning realized that one of the sites has been ruined with messed up characters.

  • As a challenging part of working at the, first three days Ramadan is the busiest time for us. We get max requests during that period. So, I just wanted to highlight some stats for taking note to myself and sharing some stats about WordPress at scale.

  •   PMM (Percona Monitoring and Management) is one of the best way to keeping MySQL under the control.
