An update and a nice trick for those who use TinyMCE for App CMS

By: Hossein Jalali • September 29, 2014

A lot has happened since my last post. I have now become a consultant to Al Aan TV and passed on the torch of "Head of Online" to others. This was a necessary move in order for me to dedicate my time and efforts in expanding Edoramedia. However it was also embraced with an unbelievably admirable action from my GM in Al Aan whom I will always be grateful for.

How to migrate files and emails from one web server to another

By: Hossein Jalali • April 16, 2014

A client of mine was having a lot of trouble with his shared hosting and finally made the decision that enough was enough. Below I will write down the whole process of transfering from an unknown hosting to Godaddy.

I will be using www.example.com (with IP: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) as the name of his website (domain) and info@example.com as the email address that needs to move, replace it with yours.

The challenges that we faced were:

  • Moving 5 years worth of email from one webmail to another considering 
  • Transfering over 2.5GB from one server to another

Step 1: Setup Hosting

This is the step where you decide to move away and select an appropriate hosting for your website. We will use Godaddy as a default since many of the hosting processes are common amongst the top providers and also it is the most recognized one.
Godaddy offers a free domain with your hosting, use it as you wish.

  • Once the hosting is ready setup your cpanel account
  • Go to Domains > "add on domains" and add www.example.com as an addon (this will allow you to be prepared once you wish to redirect your domain to this server). Basically this prepares the hosting to accept the domain call
  • Lets say IP address is yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy

This squirrel made my day

By: Hossein Jalali • February 19, 2014

I have always had a phobia of animlas, hard as I try, I can not remember why? Was it something in my childhood or just nature, but ever since we got Leo (almost 2 years ago) I started appreciatign animals much more. He really changed my whole perspective on the world and I have tend to become more sensetive on matters related to animals.

Anyways all the above was an introduction to me laughing out loud at this image:

Facebook is heading in the wrong direction, greed is short term!

By: Hossein Jalali • January 30, 2014

Recenly I have been reading a lot of negative articles about facebook and the fact that they are no longer the "cool" thing and how the growth has stopped, teenagers don't use facebook anymore, how it will die in the year 20XX, etc. 

My personal take is that it can not die and it never will, yes! I agree that it has become a burdon rather than a fun network to follow people and snoop in on their personal lives, we use it based on habit and a bit of curiousity but our activity has decreased dramatically, we don't post status messages every few minutes and check back to see the number of likes and comments it receives, we keep that for instagram and snapchat now.

Take a look at this picture:
