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.

Are we back? Getting past WP Android client issues

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.
