Duplicator a Wordpress plugin for site migration

Wordpress migration to a new host and a new domain is tricky!

To move a problematic site I used Duplicator a plugin that did all the heavy lifting of changing the configuration settings, fix the db serialized strings, apply some legacy conversion to the queries and other stuff.

Without the plugin a manual migration was almost impossible.

Kudos to the authors.

Ncdu is a disk usage analyzer with an ncurses interface. It is designed to find space hogs on a remote server where you don’t have an entire graphical setup available, but it is a useful tool even on regular desktop systems. Ncdu aims to be fast, simple and easy to use, and should be able to run in any minimal POSIX-like environment with ncurses installed.

View and extract content from msi

Less MSIérables

From their site

A tool to view and extract the contents of an Windows Installer (.msi) file.

It just works. No installation required.

Browse all the contents of the msi file, extract single files, view tables. Usable from a nice simple GUI or from the command line.
