How To Automatically Remove error_log Files

Apache has great logging features, but if you’re using shared hosting, then sometimes removing error_log files might not be very simple. Poking around the Internet did lead me to Lester’s site, where he has generously created and offered an error_log file cleaning script for free. Grab that script here.

How To Reset The MySQL Root User Password and Privileges

Problem: I was developing using PHPMyAdmin when I added a new root user (with a host value of %), and removed the rights of the default root user.
