In the first article in this series, I introduced Home Assistant and why you might be interested in it. In short, Home Assistant is an automation hub for some of the most common smart devices on the market today. It enables centralized coordination of disparate hardware. By using it, you no longer have to choose suboptimal tech from a single vendor to manage your smart home from a single app.
Lets have a look on what we have on this article:
- Setting up Apache 2 in Linux Subsystem for Windows 10

Hey, what good’s Ubuntu 18.04 for web dev without Apache, PHP, and MySQL? Getting the full LAMP stack up and running in WSL is a breeze and then you can get some work done. BTW, don’t forget Git.
There are some good pointers and excellent tips in Web Development and Advanced Techniques with Linux on Windows (WSL) that are useful if you’re using WSL as part of your dev toolkit. Getting the same envs, including PATH, running across both systems is handy. It’s cool to be able to develop in Windows and test in Ubuntu without mucking about with VMs or ssh or anything.

It seems that the WordPress Android client did not take kindly to my decision to go all in on the https craze. I needed to delete the site from the app and as it back again.
2 things would have been useful here. First, a more descriptive error message. The 405 Method not allowed message didn’t tell me anything. I knew it wasn’t working. Maybe a hint that it could be related to a change on the site wood be good. Second, let me change the URL of the site without needing to delete it. I think this used to be a feature but I couldn’t find it. I’ve been using the app for years and lost a bunch of data because I had to delete the site and reattach.
The ask is still great, but it child stand to be a bit more flexible.
