Localization In PHP

Localization In PHP:
Localization is the process of adapting a product or content to a specific locale or market. It allows you converting the existing language of the website to the native language as per the preference. We have worked on several projects which had a special requirement of displaying the texts in their regional language. For ex. If a website is going to be published in Spain so customers want the text to be displayed in Spanish language along with the default English language depending on the specific locale or market.

Usually, programs are written and documented in English, and use English at execution time for interacting with users. So, we use a gettext which is used for localization and internationalization the language. As we have created a HTML page with PHP Script so we write a function for echoing (Display the content on User Interface) with using of gettext.

So, the next question could be how it works? We have created an English website using T_() function, the…

AWS Troubleshooting – Remote access to instance is not working.

Brief:

We recently added some restrictions to remote access the server, so we tried to change the default remote desktop port to a different one through “Regedit” but forgot to add the exception in windows firewall, in doing so we lost remote access to the instance.

This post will explain the methods to get the remote access back.

How It Works:

To resolve the issue, we can revert the changes backto default (remote desktop port) in multiple ways. 

Please Note: Before proceeding with the troubleshooting steps below, I would strongly recommend that you create an AMI of the instance or take a snapshot of the root volume since we will be modifying root volume.

Method 1 (Without taking the instance offline):

1. Create a temporary instance with an OS of either same or higher version. You may use t2.micro free tier for temporary instance.

2. Edit security group of impaired instance and allow traffic to TCP ports 135 and 445 temporarily.

3. Download PsTools on temporary instance –

AWS Troubleshooting – How to Revert the OS to Last Known Configuration

It can harm your AWS operating system if you try to change the registry or anything related to the AWS configurations. The AWS instance OS does not provide the option for System Restore, which we have in the personal Windows OS.

This post explains how you can revert the OS of the AWS instance.

How It Works:

Please ensure you create an AMI or snapshot of the root volume before proceeding to revert the OS back to the last known good configuration. Please follow the steps below:

1. Create another temporary instance in the same availability zone. Please ensure it is 2008 R2 or higher.

2. Stop the impaired instance.

3. Detach the root volume of the impaired instance.

4. Attach the root volume to the temporary instance.

5. In case you do not see the new volume, please open "diskmgmt.msc" (disk management console) to bring the volume online.

6. Open regedit and select HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder.

Automate HDInsight Cluster

Brief:

An application (.Net) is implemented to manage Microsoft Azure resources without user interaction. Which automatically creates Azure HDInsight cluster, processes data (using Hive queries) and exports the processed data (using SQOOP queries) to required SQL Database.

Need:

Whenever we have large amount of structured or unstructured data to process. Hadoop is the best solution to process it. Microsoft Azure provides HDInsight service which is based on Hadoop. As HDInsight billing is per hour basis, to reduce the cost we can start HDInsight cluster, process data and delete it after completion. This functionality can be done using the Microsoft Azure portal. But it is not feasible to a user to go to Azure portal daily and create a cluster and process the data. To minimize the manual work, we created an application which will do all above functionality automatically. And it can be scheduled in scheduler to run daily or as per requirement.

How It Works:
