How to find positives in your failures?

In this world no body wants to be a looser. Every one wants success in life.Sometime they achieve it sometime they don't.It happens many time that despite our great effort and determination, we could not able to reach our goal. In that time of difficulties , instead of getting sad and depressed ,it is much better to get out of failure as soon as possible.If you give emphasis on some important points, your failure can become formula of your success.

What is success ?

Before trying for success , it is important to define it. Every one has different measures of success.Someone's success is to earn 10 dollars a day while other one take it as a failure.Most of the confusion starts from definition of success itself,so what are our parameters for success? If you decide your parameters of success , you will get to know failures parameters too. That would help you to clearly define your goal.

Analysis is important :

Addison once said that by failing 1000 times, he get to know 1000 different ways of not getting results.In the same way, if you analyze your every defeat,you can get some positive out of it.Moreover you would know what went wrong last time to not to repeat it next time.

Never Demoralize yourself :

People who, blame themselves for their failure,finds it difficult to move forward in life, but it doesn't mean that you blame others for your failure.So instead of playing blame game,accept your failure with a calm mind and start planning for the future.

Be brave :

Never loose hope from one or two failure because life always give a second chance and it may be possible that your failure itself is building your path to success.Learn a lesson from it and keep focus on your goal. You will definitely get your success.Listen to Steve Jobs commencement speech at Stanford University, you will know that points connect (failure or success), you don't realize now but in future when you look back, you would say thank god for these failures.It brings me closer to you and my goals both.

How to Host PHP Websites at your Home Computer?

Hosting PHP Website at home has its own security risks but it is not difficult as most of you think. To host a Website you need IP address(Dynamic or Static) which you already have because you are reading this blog and Server Software like Apache or IIS and domain name.If you are using PHP and MySQL at your home computer then your computer has server installed which is either Apache or IIS. If some of you don't then should first install it from wamp.

1. Make sure that your computer has Server  Software Installed :

Download Wamp(Wamp is for windows , Lamp is for Linux) according to your Operating System(Linux , Windows or MAC) from this website. Install it and move your php files into root folder of wamp which is usually www , if your server software is different than it would be htdocs.

Now,as you moved all your files to the root folder of Apache Server ,check whether your server is working or not, by typing localhost/your_folder_name/file_name.php into the address bar of your browser. If you get the expected output then everything is working fine and you can move to step 2.

2.Hosting server needs Static Ip address , if you have that then move to step 3 , if you don't have static ip address or don't even know the meaning of ip then read this step :

Whenever one computer connects with another computer on any network it needs a unique address like we need home address to get our letters, this address is called IP (Internet Protocol) Address which is like Whenever we connect to the internet , our Internet Service Provider allots IP address to our computer from a range of IP Addresses ,this type of allotment is called dynamic if it changes whenever we reconnect our internet and the similar address is called static when it doesn't change irrespective of our connecting or disconnecting.

Static cost us more price than dynamic and usually common user don't need static ip at all.

If you don't have static ip , I assume you don't then you should try searching some good dynamic dns web service on google , which would provide you service for free to use your existing dynamic address to host website.

3. If you are using broadband as I do then you need to change factory settings of your modem , so that it can forward any request on port 80 to your localhost wamp server.

There are many ways to do so, each vary with different modems but generally you should type in your address bar which opens up your modem control panel. If it asks for username and password and you don't know them, just type admin as username and password both(It usually works). After that click on Add NAT which is in Advanced Setting Tab of your modem home page. In NAT, write 80 for both UDP and TCP  in there respective boxes. 80 is a Port number which is used for Web Services like http requests. Select both TCP and UDP as your packet types and in IP address, type your computer's ip address which you can find using ipconfig in command prompt.
4. Add Exception to all of your firewalls so that they allow any request from port 80 on your computer.You can find windows firewall in Control Panel.

5. Congratulations ! You have done it. I know there is still large scope of improvement for this article but it is a vast topic and I tried my best to make it as compact as possible.Moreover , I will keep improving it according to your suggestion and comments. Bye for Now.
