Recently, while reviewing the database of my blog, I found out that the ‘Broken Link Checker‘ plugin sometimes has troubles finding broken internal links in the database of my WordPress installation.
Fortunately for me the links I needed to update could be updated using regular expressions so, instead of using a plugin like ‘Velvet Blues Update URLs‘, I could fix them using regular expression functions directly in the database. I leave here a short guide and links to help you if you find yourself in a similar situation. Read More

In a previous post I showed you how to set a static local IP on Armbian. However, there are situations where IP address assignment cannot be done on the device itself. This is the case, for example, of many smart devices such as the Yeelight smart lights, where it is not possible to set a static IP address using the manufacturers app. For cases like this, the best option is to configure the static local IP directly on the router. This is done via Static DHCP (also known as DHCPreservation) which is a feature that makes the DHCP server on your router to always assign the same IP address to a specific device on your LAN.
In this post I will show you how to do it on a DD-WRT router assigning a static IP to an Orange Pi Zero without making any changes to the device itself. Read More
By default your device IP is assigned by your router DHCP server and can change from one start to another. This might not be an issue but sometimes you may want to always have the same IP assigned to your device. For instance, when we installed Home Assistant on our Orange Pi Zero, we would prefer to always have the same IP to access Home Assistant.
Here I’ll show you how to setup a static IP in an ethernet connection in Armbian tested on an Orange Pi Zero (Armbian 5.59 stable Debian (stretch) 4.14.65). Read More
