There are many WordPress plugins for highlighting programming code. Until now, I have used Crayon Syntax Highlighter on this blog and was satisfied with it, but at the time of the writing, the plugin was last updated more than 2 years ago, so I started looking for the non-plugin alternative. In the end, I chose to use Google code-prettify library. This article will show you how to implement this library into the WordPress and how to make it more versatile by using few CSS tricks.
Recently, I was working on an ASP.NET MVC project using Visual Studio and the web project had strongly-typed views that were using model classes located in another class project in the same solution.

As it was slowly filling up, I decided to migrate the MySQL database files to another drive. I assumed all I needed to do is to update a path for datadir option in
my.ini configuration file, but that didn't work. After the database location move, starting the MySQL server gave me 10061 error "Can't connect to MySQL server" error. Luckily, the fix was quite simple.
Recently I had some issues with EasyPHP development server, so I decided to install PHP, Apache & MySQL manually on my local machine.

This article will show how I fixed this issue.
