Robocopy FTW

recently i having issues to copy files to remote location where the network is slow.

It keep fails midway. i found a pretty need solution provided by MS in every PC. Below are the syntax i wrote in the cmd

Robocopy "C:\UserFolder" "C:\FolderBackup" /e /Z /log+: logcopy.txt
first syntax is source address
second is destination
/e is for copy all contents including empty directories of SourceFolder to DestinationFolder:
/Z is to re-do/continue on error/network fails 
last one is log location.

MySQL INSERT INTO VALUES and SELECT multiples row of data

Found  a way to insert into a table some value i've and one i get from a select from other table

INSERT INTO table1 VALUES ("string", 10, [int]).

I  have the value of ''string" and the 10, but i've to find that [int] from a select like this:

SELECT idTable2
FROM table2
Use an insert ... select query, and put the known values in the select:

insert into table1
select 'A string', 5, idTable2
from table2
where ...
Issue that may come out:

A problem I've found with this approach is that if the SELECT returns zero records then the statement succeeds but no data is INSERT. –  Neil C. Obremski Feb 13 '14 at 1:52

Password Protect WordPress Attachments (files)

I had a website where users can upload important file to share. i used one of the option provided by web host in the cp called, 'Secured folder'. so other people on the net cannot access the file.

Well, recently the option no longer supported, and i had to look around on the net to find a simpler solution other than subscribing to an 'additional services'. 

so i found one, which is this.

You might have some sections of your WordPress site that are only accessible for your WordPress user. Pretty easy to protect the page or post in WordPress for only the registered user but what about the attachments of the post/page (files, images)?
They won’t be protected by default, this means if a request is made directly to the file it can be accessed without any password. There is potentially the solution where you protect the files in a directory with htaccess password, but do you really want to manage new set of username and password outside or WordPress? Not really.
Here is the solution, use htaccess to check if a user is logged in the WordPress site when accessing the files area, if not then redirect to the WordPress login page. Here is the new .htaccess:
# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^.*uploads/.*
RewriteCond %{HTTP_COOKIE} !^.*wordpress_logged_in.*$ [NC]
RewriteRule . /wp-login.php?redirect_to=%{REQUEST_URI} [R,L]

RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
# END WordPress
We simply have protected the whole uploads area and redirect to login if the user is not logged. You can protect a different directory.

basically just create a file called .htaccess (note that.htaccess is the extension, if you create .htaccess.php for examples, it wont work) with the code above and place it inside the folder that you want to protect.
