  1. hi there - Philwiss - and however you name yourself.. 


    dear buddy - lets call you TBone from Linuxquestions: you are a firstclass Troll - and were after you... 

    over there - they do not like you  - and we are those who are makeing this public  - hahaha 

    Well, I can certainly understand getting tired of answering the same questions over and over, but that is the nature of a forum. TBOne's advice is sound, it just comes across very grumpy and sadly that can drive people away. Hopefully the OP will stick it out..

    loadedmind: Who said I was trolling? You imply/assume a whole lot based on little information. You might want to look in the mirror with that whole "attitude" thing...
    I didn't LATCH ON to ANYTHING. Direct quote from the op, "I am new to linux and was trying to start by installing rhel 7.2 in my laptop". How in the HELL can you infer anything more than me wanting to help op based on this information?! Seriously man, check your ego at the door. Sometimes people just want to help other people without inferring anything more than a helping hand. Enhance your calm.



    well TBoner aka Philiwiss aka xyz - do not forget - were behind you - and we follow you 

    hahaha 😀


  2. hello and good day dear Community, 

    just came from WpTavern.com where i have read some exciting news on Block-protocol 
    but i am not sure if i got it right: 

    see:  Block Protocol Project Aims to Create Universal Block System, May Collaborate with Gutenberg

    i have read the following: 

    Block Protocol is a new project that aims to build a block system for embedding interactive blocks in any web application. The goal is to create a more interoperable and open web where these blocks can be shared through a standardized protocol. The initial draft of the Block Protocol spec is being incubated by the team at HASH, an open source data, modeling, and simulation platform. When HASH founder Joel Spolsky shared the idea with the world yesterday, through a post on his WordPress-powered blog, it caught Matt Mullenweg’s attention.

    Well as far as i understand the folks talk about some synergy-effects. 

    “This is 100% what Gutenberg is trying to do, and it’s designed to not be WordPress-specific, with the idea that Gutenberg blocks become cross-CMS,” Mullenweg said. “We have open source Android and iOS versions.” He recommended the Block Protocol team link up with Gutenberg lead architect Matias Ventura to discuss combining efforts.

    it sounds that Blockprotocoll should be a general platform  - or concept that can be applied to Gutenberg and to other systems.. as well

    Are they aiming for some synergy-effects. 
    see: https://blockprotocol.org

    Build and use interactive blocks connected to the world of structured data

    An open standard for building and using data-driven blocks. Make your applications both human and machine-readable.

    what do you say?!

    Look forward to hear from you

  3. good day dear friends on PHP-Freaks,

    I want to make a simple ph meter and display the ph value on an OLED/LCD display. I think I can learn a lot from this project; Something about the construction and functioning of the pH sensor. Last but not least - if the system has to be calibrated (which I don't necessarily "have to" have - then I would just "take it with me".  Then I learn the calibration method that determines the accuracy and accuracy of the sensor.

    But - as I said: actually I would like to get around the calibration.

    If that's possible.

    the options:

    a. DFRobot Gravity Analog pH Sensor
    b. EZO TM class embedded pH circuit: This is an ... - TI E2  by : The Atlas Scientific EZO™

    btw: I note that the Atlas Scientific EZO has a pH resolution of +/-0.002 - well i do not really need that high resolution!!! So i guess that i have to choose the DFRoboat Gravity
    but here the comparison:  which one is the best one!?  to test water, Coffee, Tea, and so on (beverages)


    see the both examples:
    DFRobot Gravity Analog pH Sensor / Meter Kit For Arduino
    30,26 €
    Hersteller: DFRobot

    Modulpower : 5.00V
    Modulsize : 43 x 32mm(1.69x1.26")
    range :0 - 14PH
    temperature: 0 - 60 °C
    accurate ph-readings : ± 0.1pH
    Reaction : < 1min
    pH-Sensor with BNC-connector

    EZO TM class embedded pH circuit This is an ... - TI E2E

    The Atlas Scientific EZO™ class pH circuit, has a flexible calibration protocol, allowing for single point, two point, or three point calibration. The other two ...
    • Full range pH reading from .001 to 14.000
    • Accurate pH readings down to the
    thousandths place (+/- 0.02)
    • Temperature dependent or temperature
    independent readings
    • Flexible calibration protocol supports single point,
    2 point, or 3 point calibration

    DescriptionThe Atlas Scientific™ EZO™ class embedded pH circuit, is our 6th generation embedded pH circuit. This EZO class pH circuit, offers the highest level of stability and accuracy. With proper configuration the EZO class pH circuit, can meet, or
    exceed the accuracy and precision found in most bench top laboratory grade pH meters. The pH-EZO™ pH circuit, can work with any off-the-shelf pH probe/ sensor/electrode. This device reads pH from a pH probe/sensor/electrode. This
    device does not include a pH probe/sensor/electrode.
    btw: i think i will stick to the b.- the Atlas Scientific™ EZO™ class embedded pH circuit

  4. difference of template structure: Wordpress traditional themes vs FSE-(full site editing) themes

    I want to find out how the templates of traditional themes are different form FSE-(full site editing) themes;

    can we say so: A template of a traditional theme would have this structure:

        ├── theme-name
        │ ├── template-parts
        │ │ ├── content.php
        │ ├── templates
        │ │ ├── template-cover.php
        │ │ ├── template-full-width.php
        │ ├── index.php
        │ ├── style.css

    and besides this a FSE theme would have this structure:

        ├── theme-name
        │ ├── block-template-parts
        │ │ ├── header.html
        │ │ ├── footer.html
        │ ├── block-templates
        │ │ ├── index.html
        │ ├── index.php
        │ ├── style.css

    in other words, the structure of a very simple block theme is structured like so:


        |__ style.css
        |__ theme.json
        |__ functions.php
        |__ block-templates
            |__ index.html
            |__ single.html
            |__ archive.html
            |__ ...
        |__ block-template-parts
            |__ header.html
            |__ footer.html
            |__ sidebar.html
            |__ ...

    To sume up: The difference with existing WordPress themes is that the different templates in the template hierarchy, and template parts, are block templates instead of php files. In addition, this example includes a theme.json file for some styles.

    Question: is this the whole description? 

    Well how can we see the differences between the both types 
    love to hear from you.

  5. dear phpFreaks Community,😉

    hello dear all; this is a slightly off-topic-question

    whats the most appropiate way and method to import the dataset (and the map) of a healthsites.io-request to wordpress:

    lets take for example the following request:


    should we do this via a shapefle

    note: A Line layer consists of two different types of OSM features, Ways and Nodes. ... sections of this plugin section according to their functionality (editing, identification, etc.).

    BTW - can i export the data of healthsits only in CSV formate - that means: what if i only want to gather the POI

    Then i can poulate the data in to a MySQL or PostGreSQL db

    is this doable too!?

    btw: i am also running https://healthsites.io/api/docs/#api-v2-facilities-list and I have an error 502.
    Healthsites API Version 2  https://healthsites.io/api/docs/#api-v2-facilities-list

    look forward to hear from you

  7. dear PHP-Freaks 


    first of all i hope youre well and every thinggoes well. I hope that your hometown is doing well and is able to manage all the covid 19 things.


    here i want to share some ideas on a installation of Miniconda on a MX-Linux-System.  To write down these steps help me to learn. So i want to share with you the first steps in working with Miniconda on a linux box.


    My approach: i am currently installing Miniconda on a MX-Linux and i am doing this via Terminal (commandline)

    the first steps are the follwing

    first i am heading for the download of the latest shell script with the following line: 

    wget https://repo.anaconda.com/miniconda/Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh

    now we have the repo on the machine: Fine - but let us go ahead_ 

    now we have to make the miniconda installation script executable

    chmod +x Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh


    This is a pretty important step: Next the installer will prompt us where we want to install Miniconda. We will be given exactly three different options or let us say: choices or methods. We need to decide the location where we want to install all that stuff: so here we go: 
    We need to press the ENTER - button on the keyboard to accept the choosen default install location i.e. our

      $HOME directory. 


    on a sidenote: even more important: if we don't want to install in the default location, we are of course free to press the following buttons on the keyboard


    to cancel the installation or mention an alternate installation directory.

    Note: if we want to  go with the default installation path, which is


    then we can run the miniconda installation script to go ahead:



    creating and activating our so called conda environment. well this is one of the last steps: We now need to create and activate an so called conda environment on our machine.
    To create a conda environment, we need to run the following command - (see the conda-cheetsheet for more commands)


    conda create -n newenv

    we can also create the environment from a file like the so called environment.yml, and besides this we also are free to use the conda env create -f command:



     conda env create -f environment.yml. The environment name will be the directory name.


    if you like conda:  just see the conda-cheetsheet for more commands.

    for the fully fledged installation to take effect, we have to do some additional steps
    e.g. we have to do the following: close and re-open our Terminal.
    Alternatively, we re able to run the following command to get the changes immediately in effect - (in other words: to  verify all that above steps):


    $ source ~/.bashrc

    we will now see the so called prefix (base) in front of our shell prompt of our machine. It means that the conda's base environment is activated. And as mentioned above: 

    if you like conda:  just see the conda-cheetsheet for more commands.


    (base) [doctor_linux@mx_linux~]$


    well so far so good: if you like conda:  just see the conda-cheetsheet for more commands.


    but wait: there is even more: there is another option the so called  Miniconda unattended  (or let us say silent) installation . the Miniconda installer script comes with options to perform a so called unattended installation. 'This is somewhat fantastic since it doesn't require any manual intervention from the us - the user. it is also called a still-installation that runs in the background: great. 

    to go this way we need to do some steps. First, we need to create a directory for Miniconda installation:



    $ mkdir ~/miniconda

    Download the installer script:


    $ wget https://repo.anaconda.com/miniconda/Miniconda3-py39_3.1.2-Linux-x86_64.sh


    Btw: Wget is a famous way. See the beginning of the thread: we also have used this at the top  - in the first approach. 
    now we have to verify the checksum as shown above. And then we follow the steps of the so called silent installation to some more  commands to install Miniconda in silent mode:


    well so far so good: if you like conda:  just see the conda-cheetsheet for more commands.


    I hope you find this useful - if you have any ideas or comments on this approach i love to hear from you



  8. good day dear community, 

    installing Miniconda on a Linux-Box: adding the vscode and Spyder to the whole system 

    i have done lots of setups - for example i am running Anaconda both on Win and MX-Linux. 

    well now i want to give conda a try: 

    well i guess it is a bit more tricky: 

    can we do it like so: 

    we need a snippet that helps to  create a directory to install miniconda into it,
    After we have set up this - then we can start to download the latest python 3 based install script for Linux 64 bit,

    Done so we an go ahead and try to execute or run the install script which helps us :- subsequently we can at the end delete the install script, 

    Then - at this point we can do the adding and intializing of Conda:

    --a conda initialize to our bash or the so called zsh shell. 

    That said: If we follow ths path then we at the  can do  a cool restart of the shell and conda will be ready to go.

    mkdir -p ~/miniconda3
    wget https://repo.anaconda.com/miniconda/Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh -O ~/miniconda3/miniconda.sh
    bash ~/miniconda3/miniconda.sh -b -u -p ~/miniconda3
    rm -rf ~/miniconda3/miniconda.sh
    ~/miniconda3/bin/conda init bash
    ~/miniconda3/bin/conda init zsh

    If we are here we can go ahead: # note: we just have done one important thing. We ve fetched Anaconda via wget

    that wen very nice. 
    now we can do even more:  the miniconda.sh has got some cool basic options. 
    Most notably we can say that we just have  used -b to be able to run the whole thing unattended, which means that all of the agreements are automatically accepted without user prompt. I like this option very very much. It is pretty cool. But there is even more. 

     -u updates any existing installation in the directory of install if there is one. -p is the directory to install into.

    here i have a litte - lets say - cheat sheet that helps us with the usage: 

    see more /root/miniconda3/miniconda.sh [options]

    Installs Miniconda - the version - see 3 4.6.14
    -b           run install in batch mode (without manual intervention),
                 it is expected the license terms are agreed upon
    -f           no error if install prefix already exists
    -h           print this help message and exit
    -p PREFIX    install prefix, defaults to /root/miniconda3, must not contain spaces.
    -s           skip running pre/post-link/install scripts
    -u           update an existing installation
    -t           run package tests after installation (may install conda-build)

    at the end oft theday we have even more options

    A quick and easy way to silence everything or to log it to a file during an automated install is to wrap the script into a bash function, or save it to its own file, and call the file. I like the function method since I can still copy it right into a terminal, or keep my install script as one single file.

    and besides that

    install_miniconda () {
    mkdir -p ~/miniconda3
    wget https://repo.anaconda.com/miniconda/Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh -O ~/miniconda3/miniconda.sh
    bash ~/miniconda3/miniconda.sh -b -u -p ~/miniconda3
    rm -rf ~/miniconda3/miniconda.sh
    ~/miniconda3/bin/conda init bash
    ~/miniconda3/bin/conda init zsh

    But wait: What do we do now:  note: now we need to have packages and all that things. 

    how to do now more - 

    a. the installation of all the packages 
    b.. the installation of  VSCode and Spyder and Jupyter notebook!?

    any idea or tipp!?



    we follow you whereever  you are.


    all of the folks here should know that you are a user from Linuxquestions.org  - and they hate you over there: Your have not many friends over there. They know who you are. 



    lets have a closer look at your fancy funny and dull postings:


    and at your terrible habits -  and the user at Linuxquestions-they know him very well:  they have beaten him  - they do not like him over there. in Fact: they call him what he is:  a troll with ugly nasty habbits. 

    see ugly minded troll at linuxquestion. They treat him as a ugly Troll - see the threads


    and so forth 

    poor guy - tbone... your lost now. ;) we know you and we follow you 

  10. hello dear all 

    conda update spyder vs. pip-methods : some basic decisions 

    i run Anaconda on MX-Linux and i love it.  
    btw; my python version is python 3.8.4 
    my spyder is 4.0.1
    vsCode 1.52.1 

    i want to update all these
    how can i do this!? 

    note: see the spyder.-man.-pages for some details: 


    While this installation method is a viable option for experienced users, installing Spyder (and other PyData-stack packages) with pip can lead to a number of tricky issues. While you are welcome to try this on your own, we unfortunately do not have the resources to help you if you do run into problems, except to recommend you use Anaconda instead.

    You can install Spyder with the pip package manager, which comes by default with most Python installations. Before installing Spyder itself by this method, you need to acquire the Python programming language.

    You’ll first want to create and activate a virtual environment in which to install Spyder, via one of the following methods.

    With virtualenvwrapper:

    mkvirtualenv spyder-env
    workon spyder-env

    Otherwise, on macOS/Linux/Unix:

    python3 -m venv spyder-env
    source spyder-env/bin/activate

    well - while doint the update - i got into abortion....see 


  11. update: i have a closer look:  in synaptic we have xrdp and other thigns.

    and yes: i also will consult the manpages to see how you should configure the inifile

    cf the following pages:

    man xrdp https://linux.die.net/man/8/xrdp
    man xrdp-sesman https://linux.die.net/man/8/xrdp-sesman
    man xrdp.ini https://www.mankier.com/5/xrdp.ini

    besides this - i have heard that some folks tend to look for for an GUI clients:
    remmina had a plugin for rdp, and IIRC vinagre supports rdp, and other things more




  12. dear community, 

    How to Use Remote Desktop Connection in MX-Linux

    well - i need to get an idea how to use Remote Desktop Connection in mx-Linux:

    i need to connect to a remote server - the only instruction i have found so far is this

    How to Use Remote Desktop Connection in Ubuntu

    How to Use Remote Desktop Connection in Ubuntu:: 

    In the majority of cases, you need to install the Ubuntu remote desktop client manually on your Ubuntu Linux. In today’s blog post, Ubuntu 18.04.2 is installed on the VMware virtual machine. Some packages are already installed in our Ubuntu before going to configuring Ubuntu remote desktop: the text editor vim, net-tools and the SSH server (which allows you to connect via SSH to the Linux console remotely). These packages can be installed with the single command:

    sudo apt-get install -y vim net-tools openssh-server

    the question is: In order to configure Ubuntu RDP connections, you need to install the RDP client or/and the RDP server, depending on the connection direction.

    well the question is  - is it enough to run this command: 

    sudo apt-get install -y vim net-tools openssh-server

  13. hello dear community, 


    first of all : i hope that youre well and all goes well !

    one question regarding google - calendar: 

    - i want to add multiple events to each day. 

    i have a large table with 365 quotes - for one day one row... see below: 


    well i want to add these data to the g calendar - and i want to add the texts of the three colums to each day.  that means:

    and each day contains all the three texts - that means a 


    the question is: how to achive that!? with automated process

    i only have managed to do this manually 

    if i t ry to do this automatically - 

    look forward to hear from you 




  14. update: tried to install all anaconda-things according the official instruction - went the hard way - on terminal: see these docs: https://docs.anaconda.com/anaconda/install/linux/

    a quick walktrough through the steps ended up in fully-fledged installation of Anaconda3

    next steps are shown here: https://docs.anaconda.com/anaconda/user-guide/getting-started/

    Linux: Open a terminal window and type anaconda-navigator.

    voila - now Anaconda3 starts...

    conclusio: all is fine now..

    have a great day ;)

  16. due to some hints we are aware of risks that are combined with php mail


    cf https://blog.ripstech.com/2017/why-mail-is-dangerous-in-php/


    Why mail() is dangerous in PHP....that based on insecure usage of the PHP mail() 
    function. ...these vulnerabilities and how to use mail() securely.

    ..we have highlighted the risks of the 5th mail() parameter and how to protect 
    against attacks that can result in full server compromise.

    that said - my admin ( a pure-security nerd ) turned of the mail_()-function: we run a pear package on the server. i now use smtp - and this works perfectly. 

    i use this smtp-plugin: https://de.wordpress.org/plugins/wp-mail-smtp/ this works great.

  17. dear friends 


    dear Jamesbrown - good day hope youre well and all goes all right at your hometown. Hope that your town is dealing well with the covic-19 things. 

    i did some further tests:  and i runned some scripts in order to test the the mail-functions oft he sever

    by the way and on a sidenote: i also checked some things in the php.ini: The php.ini has smtp_port = 25 set
    but this function - we do not need for our checks...  at the moment. .

    below some of the tests - / note i tested some scripts -... all of them see below - with the results

    mailtest10.php: Test-results: email sent - but no mail received at my inbox

        $subject = "PHP Mail Test script";
        $message = "This is a test to check the PHP Mail functionality";
        $headers = "From:" . $from;
        mail($to,$subject,$message, $headers);
        echo "Test email sent";

    $message = "php test message";
    $headers = 'From:' . $sender;
    if (mail($recipient, $subject, $message, $headers))
        echo "Message accepted";
        echo "Error: Message not accepted";



    mailtest30.php: Test-results: Testing PHP mail - this text was shown up

    taken from: https://tekeye.uk/html/php-mail-script-for-testing-email-sending

    <!DOCTYPE html>

                //Use your test email address
                $to      = 'My_testmai_adress_@mywebserver.com';
                //Use an appropriate email subject
                $subject = 'A Test Email';
                $message = 'The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. Then the fox jumped over the dog again.';
                //wordwrap long content
                $message = wordwrap($message, 70, "\r\n");
                $headers = 'From: some.body@example.com';
                //Send the email
                if(mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers))
                    echo 'Email sent out';
                    echo '<pre>';
                    echo  '</pre>';


    Well - now i will have a closer look at the server-conditions.

    btw - besides the various scripts i found some other ressoruces that cover the topic-mail-deliverability and sending mails from a server: here i found a with explanaitions

    - on a sidenote  with explanaitions i found a great and a very interesting site that reveals lots of information for mail-deliverabilty  see  https://stackoverflow.com/questions/24644436/php-mail-function-doesnt-complete-sending-of-e-mail

    interesting points here are some of the following:

    Make sure mail headers have no syntax errors
    Invalid headers are just as bad as having no headers. One incorrect character could be all it takes to derail your email. Double-check to make sure your syntax is correct as PHP will not catch these errors for you.

    $headers = array("From from@example.com", // missing colon
        "Reply To: replyto@example.com",      // missing hyphen
        "X-Mailer: "PHP"/" . PHP_VERSION      // bad quotes

    Enable PHP's custom mail.log
    In addition to your MTA's and PHP's log file, you can enable logging for the mail() function specifically. It doesn't record the complete SMTP interaction, but at least function call parameters and invocation script.

    ini_set("mail.log", "/tmp/mail.log");
    ini_set("mail.add_x_header", TRUE);


    See http://php.net/manual/en/mail.configuration.php for details. (It's best to enable these options in the php.ini or .user.ini or .htaccess perhaps.)

    Make sure your form action value points to the correct location

  18. dear comunity 


    .... years later i am facing issues - with a new and fresh install,  i guess that i have to recapitulate and to "revisite" the old taks - in order to get done all the steps to configure the settings - especially the e-mail-settings. 


    pm a fresh installed wp - the newest version 5.6  i ve got an Error:


    The email could not be sent. Your site may not be correctly configured to send emails. Get support for resetting your password.


    background: with a new project i want to make sure, that works all propper and is set up correctly. 

    so i just wanted to check the e-mail-setting of the server. i have heard that there are appropiate ways and methods to check mail functions. 


    Well to check whether an email is sent out - we can do this with simple methods: a good and nice option is the following: we can do this by doing a password-reset-email: ;) 

    well, by far the :easiest method to check:  if WordPress can send email is to request a password reset. To do this, we have to make sure to log out of the account on the site and go to the login page, e.g. like so: go the wordpress-page.il/wp-login.php

    if we arrive on that page we just click the following notion “Lost your password?” text:
    then we will arrive on the next page, here we can add our e-mail address of the according user account and demand our new passwd:
    a texts pops up: “Get New Password.”

    last step: if  get the new passwd - then the system works propperly.

    but i do not get any password mailed - instand of this i get the message: 

    Error: The email could not be sent. Your site may not be correctly configured to send emails. Get support for resetting your password.

    further checks: to do more tests to check if wp_mail is working properly if i have configured the server correctly? in other words: i want to check whether an email is sent out using: 

    what is important here:  The php.ini has smtp_port = 25 set - this i have checked. 

    What can i do now - what should i do - which steps should i take!?




  19. hi there - good day dear Gizmola, 

    first of all: many thank😊


    these links reveal lot of information and show very interstings pathways to the topic of geospatial approach. 

    many thanks for these great hints: 

    Looking from a backend perspective i am at the point to work with stored geographic data of many locations. Working with these data is a important step. working out functions that calculate the distance between between two locations (to show how far the location is from another). Its all about working out an algorithm that suppots these geospatial work.  Thank you for sharing these tutorials and study material.   Well i am very happy that you have shown some tutorials in the field of MySQL; 

    i am working with openstreetmap-data for many months now - in the last time i thought that need to have

    - not only requests to the endpoint of Openstreetmap API but more than that - 
    - ability and capability to store the datasets in a db and to work with the data 
    - to have internal procedures/functions to calculate & search locations in the database

    I am very happy dear Gizmola that you show my MySQL tutorials and study material since i am a bit familiar with MySQL. on a sidenote: many many of my friends have installed PostGreSQL and suggest PostGIS. 

    but i need to have a lean start here - i only want to work with POI - and i do not want to work with full maps and Shapefiles at the moment.  So i am happy to have these approaches and pathways that you have shown me. I look at all the datasets, materials and your shared stuff. Also many many thanks for sharing the study materials and tutorials regarding PostGIS and PostgreSQL. Thats a great addition to the MySQL-tutorial-stuff.  And here some (many many!!) thank to you, and all the others that do such a great support. You, dear Gizmola, but also the others here namely: requinix and Barand but also Kicken, gw1500se - all of you do a superb job here. 

    This is a great place to be.  A place where programmers share ideas and help each other to grow. 

    I love phpFreaks since it is an online community that supports sharing and discovering new ideas and pathways to solve issues in programming. 
    I love this place for  discussing computer topics - not only php-realted but also lots of others more. Many thanks for your support - that you are here. 
    Many thanks for this place where we can have debates, and make friends. 


    In the next few days i will have a closer look at all the stuff  that you provided. 


    have a great day


    regards Dil_bert😊


  20. good day dear freaks - good day dear Barand - and Gizmola, 


    this is a myql-question  i am trying to find a simple but effective solution in Geo Spatial Search on a datbase - how to perfomre 

    i have some database things to solve: 

    how to perform a geosort in dataset (eg.MySQL, Postgresql or others) to order by proximity and limit the search to a defined range. 
    in other words: How to do that with (avoiding a) full-scaled table scan for such kind of queries, using (traditional) indexes on the latitude and longitude columns.

    to begin with the beginning; we can do such nearby searches that are based on openstreetmap-searches like so - and work on the overpass-api-level performing a overpass-turbo.eu request: 

    rel[boundary=administrative][admin_level=6][name="München"] -> .city;
    out center; 

    so we can use the following processes: 

    a. Overpass API ( https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_API ) to search for nearby POIs. 

    b. Nominatim API ( https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim )

    c.  and yes on Android we also can use osmdroid to perform queries against Overpass API and display the results as overlays on an OSM map.

    d. but if we have got - lets say 5000 records of openstreetmap-data in the myql-db then we can go ahead and perform a search on that table - see below 


    regarding a and b for more infos see the following links: a, https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_API 

    by the way: The overpass-turbo interface is also really a very nice, handy and powerful aproach for that kind of search. we can put key=amenity and value=toilets in the search box. 
    It defaults to searching this data 

    what is aimed: i am trying to find all places nearby a certain location  - let us do this in lat_lng.

    What we have is the following dataset: 

    a location (location='location'). 

    assumed we ve got a key for the Google places API Web Service and Google Maps Geocoding API. 
    Accoring to https://github.com/slimkrazy/python-google-places this should be enough.

    This is a code-approach:


    google_places = GooglePlaces(YOUR_API_KEY)
    	query_result = google_places.nearby_search(
            lat_lng='42.323417, 3.3456666666', 
            types=[types.TYPE_SCHOOL] or [types.TYPE_COLLEGE])
    	for place in query_result.places (##town-hotspot):
        ## we search in table "town-hotspot"
         print '%s %s %s' % (place.name, place.geo_location, place.types)

    according the man-pages we have got the following: https://github.com/slimkrazy/python-google-places


    from googleplaces import GooglePlaces, types, lang
    	YOUR_API_KEY = 'Key-API-KEY-Key-API-KEY-Key-API-KEY- foo bar '
    	google_places = GooglePlaces(OUR_API_KEY)
    	# You may prefer to use the text_search API, instead.
    query_result = google_places.nearby_search(
            location='Rome, Italy', keyword='Fish and Chips',
            radius=20000, types=[types.TYPE_FOOD])
    # If types param contains only 1 item the request to Google Places API
    # will be send as type param to fullfil:
    # http://googlegeodevelopers.blogspot.com.au/2016/02/changes-and-quality-improvements-in_16.html
    	if query_result.has_attributions:
        print query_result.html_attributions
    for place in query_result.places:
        # Returned places from a query are place summaries.
        print place.name
        print place.geo_location
        print place.place_id

    so we re able to do the following snippet of code for a town-hotspot table: 


    query_result = google_places.nearby_search(
        ## first of all we need the geo-coordinates:
            lat_lng='42.323417, 3.3456666666', 
        ## after the coordinates we need to set a value of radius
        ## after the coordinates and the setting of a value of radius we need to choose a type
            types=[types.TYPE_SCHOOL] or [types.TYPE_COLLEGE])

    To see the query_result of Colleges and Schools, we also can simply run the following snippet for a town-hotspot table: 


    query_result.raw_response in tabel 

    but wait: we can do it like so with the town-hotspot 

    Order table by proximity to specific latitude/longitude (using MySQL+PHP)

    imagine if we have a MySQL table that looks like so: 

    	           GEODATA             more data of town-hotspot
    id | param|    lat    |    lng          |    db-field-data    
    1  |  a   | 41.339563 | -126.3557893  |field 1
    2  |  b   | 39.150682 | -107.066214   |field 2
    3  |  c   | 49.897893 | -99.444765    |field 3
    4  |  d   | 41.327433 | -106.34535    |field 4
    4  |  e   | 4=.553133 | -101.24563    |field 5

    how to proceed: We could do now is order the above mentioned list according to their proximity to the following dataset:  (41.834527,-108.140625).

    we can do it like so for the search of the town-hotspot table: 

    $a = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM table ORDER BY proximity DESC");
    while($b = mysql_fetch_assoc($a))
    echo $b['url'].'<br />';

    but we can also do this like so: we also can perform the Geosorting directly on the database - this may help to find a simple but effective solution in Geo Spatial Search on a datbase.

    again: what is aimed: requirement: i want to display nearby places - good would be sorted in ascending order of distance from the current user.

    The places table is:

     CREATE TABLE town-hotspot (
     id int(11) NOT NULL ,
     category varchar(400),
     category_tag varchar (200),
     [amenity:] name varchar(400),
     address varchar(4000) ,
     street varchar(200),
     city varchar(200) ,
     state varchar(200) ,
     zipcode varchar(40) ,
     country varchar(200) ,
     telephone varchar (100),
     fax Varchar (100),
     website varchar (200), 
     mailadress varchar (200),     
     latitude decimal(111,2) ,
     longitude decimal(222,2) ,
     PRIMARY KEY (id)

    note: i have approx 5000 records in a table. 
    Having this above mentioned set of data - note a whole bunch of data - with all that latitude, longitude, address, city and country and others more. 

    which options do i have to find nearby places in the table called "town-hotspot": well i could do the following 

    a.  well we could do a calculation of  a min, max range of lat, lng in lets say 10-25 miles radius from a certain coordinate 
    with a certain relation to Category and category tag... 

    this would look like so 



     SELECT * FROM town-hotspot
        WHERE (latitude  between MINLAT  and MAXLAT )  
        and   (longitude between MINLNG and MAXLNG)
        and category = CATEGORY varchar(400)
        and category_tag = CATEGORY_TAG varchar (200)

    This could be done like so - well i guess that this means to have lots of calculations.

    what do you say?!

    i guess that the mysql-search (the last example in this very very long posting ) is a pretty effective solution in Geo Spatial Search on a datbase.



  21. hello Feaks 


    hope youre all right and everything goes well in your home-town. Have a happy new year - and stay healthy. 

    have a happy new year. 


    ever wanted to work with WordPress multisite, but if so - you wanted to be able to use your own names. For example your main site is named example.com. 
    If you want to add a new site to your multisite network it's gonna be called newsite.example.com: Suppose you want to be able to visit newsite.com without example. 

    good news: there is a way to achieve this?

    first steps to achieve this: 
    setup: https://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress
    configuring: https://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network

    we have to configure the DNS Records (Nameservers) for the Custom Domain:

    some steps to do so: 
    a.  we need to make sure that our custom domain name points to our hosting server.
    b.  for the setup of different domain and hosting accounts (recommendet), we to repeat the steps to set up the network’s main domain name (i.e. the primary domain on which we ve installed WordPress).

    it is pretty important that we configure the custom domain’s DNS records manually. 
    Note: There is no special single catch-all process, since the method will depend on which domain registrar hosting provider we are going to use.

    here is a sample configuration for the wp-config.php file in the base directory of the WordPress installation:

    /* Multisite */
    define( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true );
    define( 'MULTISITE', true );
    define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', true );
    define( 'DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'www.primary-domain.com' );
    define( 'PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/' );
    define( 'SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );
    define( 'BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1 );

    here's the basic configuration for the .htaccess file as a subdomain configuration,  in the base directory of the WordPress installation:

    RewriteEngine On

    # EoF WordPress
    .....to get TLD's to work properly,  we can do some additional configurations to the wp-config.php file like the following.,..

    define( 'COOKIE_DOMAIN', '' );
    define( 'ADMIN_COOKIE_PATH', '/' );
    define( 'COOKIEPATH', '/' );
    define( 'SITECOOKIEPATH', '/' );

    cf: https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/251116/how-to-use-wordpress-multisite-with-different-domain-names

    best practice:

    - one Apache Virtual Host for the primary domain in the network and then 
    - configure that virtual host with alias domains. Each alias domain being one of the additional sites in the network.

  22. dear community, howdy freaks



    i am on Linux. i want to set up a Python development environment: i have several options:

    in fact: Lots of choices we have VSCode, Sublime, Eric  or ATOM and yes also PyCharm  or  Anaconda and and lots of others more

    i have a bit Experience in ATOM which is neat and extensible. It also has a very nice Github-integration.  We also can use PyCharm  which is a fully flegded IDE with a great Python-support. 

    VSCode is a very very large project on Github - in fact the biggest one. 

    to install VSCode on MX is a bit tricky - there are several options. I describe some - and would be lucky if you add more. 

    we can use Flatpack, since it is integrated into MXPI and it makes easier. some of my friends not use this (Fedora) packaging system, i can install codium as sugested on their web page: it is supposed to worked and we re keep getting updates if we install codium.

    Here are the steps we can use: (Codium is the same as Code, just removed Microsoft 'telemetry')

    VSCodium: https://github.com/VSCodium/vscodium/releases

    # Add the GPG key of the repository:

    wget -qO - https://gitlab.com/paulcarroty/vscodium-deb-rpm-repo/raw/master/pub.gpg | sudo apt-key add -

    # Add the repository:

    echo 'deb https://gitlab.com/paulcarroty/vscodium-deb-rpm-repo/raw/repos/debs/ vscodium main' | sudo tee --append /etc/apt/sources.list.d/vscodium.list

    # Update then install vscodium:

    sudo apt update && sudo apt install codium

    Anaconda: Btw, there is another option - Anaconda. If we install Anaconda, huge scientific package, many research labs use it,
    it comes with VS Code (well during installation we need to confirm that we want VS Code also installed) and then VSCode becomes integrated with it. Plus we furthermore get another IDE, simpler Spyder, plus Jypiter Notebook which I really like for certain things. We can check out Anaconda also. Although it is damned huge, some 12GB and after we start creating virtual environments in it, it will get even damned-bigger. Ah, yes, it is perfect for managing virtual environments, we can create them with mouse click, choose what version of python to use with it, which packages... all with mouse if we prefer GUI. Lots of choices we have VSCode :: ATOM :: PyCharm  or  Anaconda and sublime, Eric and lots of others more


  23. Hello dear PHP-Fellows - dear Freaks


    this thread covers some of my ideas regarding the Setting up venv on a linux box - my setup for a development-environment - using VSCode / ATOM / PyCharm and others more - well - first of all i am interested in setting up a python development-system.. -  - this is my first choice - besides this - of course i am interested in all thing php and also other languages..


    here we go: After dealing some time with the installation and the setup of a development-enviroment on a linux box. 
    and besides that on a Win10 too. i currently figure out which things are most important to set up a development  environment,.

    i have installed Python in a global mode and fashion. And i guess that this causes issues all along the way. 

    BTW: guess that it surely is worth to look into docker (and perhaps into Anaconda too - since i guess that i might get rid of the hell of dependencies... note: i am installing all that stuff on both on ... a. on win 10 and b. on linux ? 

    i have read some and have seen a whole bunch of tutorials on the setup virtual environment for Python

    - in VS Code - best practices for using Virtualenv 
    - and besides for ATOM ... 

    i am very very glad that you have posted and give me some important hints: 

    So i guess that i have to using virtualenv to isolate my projects and then i store pip dependencies in requirements.txt. 
    As we develop, we install, remove and upgrade packages, the list of dependencies in your project differs from requirements.txt

    but how can i do it right - how to setup venv the right way - 
    a. on win 10 and 
    b. on linux ? 

    i have setup a python-development-environment on a Windows 10 machine and on a MX-Linux-machine. 
    i guess that i set up the machine /ATOM badly - any and all help greatly appreciated. 

    note: the setup of Python with global mode is weird so weird.  

     regarding the set up and usage of virtual environment in VSCode 

    I recently have read an article on using Virtual Environments for Python projects.
    and this one Comparing Python Virtual Environment tools
    guess, that have to take care how i setup python on my linux-machine. 

    Comparing installed pip packages with requirements.txt :: So if we are using virtualenv to isolate our projects and then subsequently we store pip dependencies in requirements.txt.  As we develop, we install, remove and upgrade packages, the list of dependencies in your project differs from the so called requirements.txt

    Currently Installed Packages: To list what are the packages that are actually installed,  we can run

    $ pip freeze

    Compare Differences: A simple comparison of requirements.txt and pip freeze will fail because the packages are in different order. 
    sort both of the output then compare them with pip

    to sume up: some of the best Practices are the following: 

    - Always make sure requirements.txt reflects the actual dependencies
    - Pin package dependencies - use the exact version
    - Preferably track only the top level dependencies in your requirements.txt
    - Update dependencies periodically  - year but how
    - Consider using pip-compile and pip-sync to manage your dependencies. Use pur to automatically update your top level dependencies in requirements.txt

    I am starting to work on VS-Code using venv: In my project folder I guess that i have to create venv folder.

    python -m venv venv /path/to/new/virtual/environment

    but when i run in VS Code the command select python interpreter my venv folder is not shown. 

    to make sure that i do all okay i try the following steps
    to make my virtual interpreter in VS Code visible? i 

    1. just go to File > preferences > Settings  - afterwards i

    2. click on Workspace settings.

    3. Under Files: Association, we will find Edit in settings.json , Well i click on that.

    4. Update "python.pythonPath": "my_venv_path/bin/python" under workspace settings. 

    (For Windows): Update "python.pythonPath": "my_venv_path/Scripts/python.exe" under workspace settings.  And subsequently

    5. Restart VSCode incase if it still doesn't show the venv.

    another option to show virtual environments in vs code: 

    go to the parent folder in which venv is there through command prompt.
    Type code . and Enter. [Working on both windows and linux for me.]

    That should also show the virtual environments present in that folder.

    In one workspace folder named Python need to adde all my other projects. 

    to spell it out clearly: 

    - I would have to have only one venv for the whole workspace folder Python. 
    - i add each subfolder in Python folder as a workspace project like Project1, Project2, Project3, Project4, Project5, Project6  etc. 

    In that Project folder I created venv environment and edited settings.json for workspace with this "python.venvPath": "venv" .
    Now, for every new project I will create new workspace and inside that folder goes venv folder which will be automatically recognized.

               +--------------+   Project6           |
                              |                      |

    i think that this is a good idea..

    some additional ideas:

    Attention: I was trying to make my project directory and the virtual environment one and the same - which isn't correct.

    I have a \Code\Python directory where I store all my Python projects.


    Python 3 installation is on my Path.

    If I want to create a new Python project (Project1) with its own virtual environment, then I do this:

    python -m venv Code\Python\Project1\venv

    Then, simply opening the folder (Project1) in Visual Studio Code ensures that the correct virtual environment is used.

    some words about the creation of a new environment in VSCode

    we can create a new environment in VSCode, if were just running the following command ( well genearlly spoken we can use “.env” as name of the environment):

    python -m venv .name_of_environment

    note: it is possible to use the  PowerShell as terminal in VSCode, we are able to run the ps1 file.


    ther is another option:  we also can use the command prompt as terminal in VSCode. If we doso then we can run the bat file.


    the good  thing: vscode shows up in the bottom left corner the progress: 

    if we just click on the the Python 3.X.X and then we can see the active executable is pointing to the python.exe in our virtual environment folder.

    this is allmost in every case possible and doable. If not - then were able to select it from the dropdown. This should now be indicated in the bottom left of VS Code. one main goal is to ensure that the virtual environment has been created inside the folder from our workspace if - for the seldom case it happens that it was created outside the folder from our workspace, then we can rework this a bit. In this case, VS Code doesn’t pick it up automatically we need to fix this. 


       i will digg deeper and come back...

    i want to run a search with Alglia for full text search in my dataset. I'want to be able to search and filter all objects. especially i want to use 'aroundRadius', 

    'aroundRadius' and also 'aroundLatLng' should return all the data without caring about the location.
     The filed _geoloc with lat and lng also exist in my data - of course - see above. 


          filters: filters,
          aroundLatLng: location,
          aroundRadius: radius

        }).then((data) => {      

    Do I need any special configuration for Indice or the syntax is wrong? I followed this data-man-pages


    Filter Results Around a Location

        "objectID": "3797",
        "name": "John F Kennedy Intl",
        "city": "New York",
        "country": "United States",
        "iata_code": "JFK",
        "_geoloc": {
          "lat": 40.639751,
          "lng": -73.778925
        "links_count": 911

    To tell Algolia where each record is located, we need to have the latitude and longitude stored in the _geoloc attribute.
    You can download the dataset here. Have look at how to import it in Algolia here.

    Initialize the client#
    from algoliasearch.search_client import SearchClient

    client = SearchClient.create('YourApplicationID', 'YourAdminAPIKey')
    index = client.init_index('your_index_name')

    Configure Index Settings#
    Even if we want to sort by distance to a location we need the textual relevance to be good in case refine the search with a query.

    For that lets configure the index.

      searchableAttributes: [
      customRanking: [

    Searchable attributes#
    We’re going to search in our 4 textual attributes: name, city, country and iata_code.......



  25. update:  the following code works good - with some renewed brackets

        rel[boundary=administrative][admin_level=6][name="München"] -> .city;
        out center;
