Hello there!

My name is Ricardo Amaral and I am an independent developer pursuing my own personal projects around web and software development and more recently Android development, with over 12 years of personal and professional experience. I also enjoy working as a freelancer every now and then whenever time, motivation and opportunity presents itself.

I’m currently a student at University of Minho enrolled in the last year of my undergraduate degree in Informatics Engineering (BSc). I consider myself a reliable and dependable software engineer continuously striving for high quality software, regardless of my workplace or the task at hand.

You are welcome to visit my homepage where you'll find additional details about myself and my public projects.

comment How to protect a folder in Apache but allow PHP scripts to access it?
So, just so I know, will your solution work to the problem I just described or not? Did you test it? I'm a little confused...

comment How to protect a folder in Apache but allow PHP scripts to access it?
This question was asked more than 1 year ago, I don't even remember it's context :/ But I believe it was something like giving a 403 when people tried to access http://www.mysite.com/some/folder/ but if they opened http://www.mysite.com/some_script.php that needed to access /some/folder to read some data, it needed to work.

comment Small confusion with access control directives in Apache
I understand all that, but both of them work the same way. That's what I'm trying to understand... Both deny everything but localhost.

Yes, you're right. Dumb question I did there...

comment Is it possible to simplify my website DNS records?
So in 1), I might as well remove the other A records and just leave the * one? As for 2), I don't know if I can modify the default server page. But one question, if I removed the * record and manually added the needed A records, a non existent domain, will now give a 404, right?

comment How to forward UDP Wake-on-Lan port to broadcast IP with IPTABLES?
When I do that iptables command and then try to list all rules with `iptables --list", that doesn't appear.

With the -I switch like I said before? How can I see if it's working (without tying WoL itself cause that's tricky)?

I have a bunch of rules already for various different services but the --list argument does not reveal anything close to any of those rules. This is what the command shows: pastebin.com/cpgbM69B

There's a bunch of them, how do I know which one should I use? I saw in the documentation that -A is for append, what if I used -I to insert a rule for IN_FILTER? Not the same?

Shouldn't the port be specified too?

comment Difference between <Location> and <Directory> Apache directives
I'm still confused... Why did Zend used both then? Can I keep my changes or is something wrong with that?

comment How to access Apache virtual-host in VMware guest through NAT?
OMG! I was testing it wrong... I was actually looking at the right page, it was working all the time (well, almost). I just thought I was supposed to see something else. I had to change localhost:80 to *:80 anyway.

comment How to access Apache virtual-host in VMware guest through NAT?
I don't have curl on the guest machines... They basically have Windows and browser installed (most of the browser actually) and nothing else.

Since I added an entry to the guest's hosts file, it resolves to that address; the host's IP.

comment Rewriting URLs from subdomain to domain in Apache
Because, like I said, I don't want a URL redirect, I want a URL rewrite.

Isn't there any other way?

comment URL Rewriting and relative addresses for CSS and such
It's actually just 2 files really. It's just that I don't want to mess with the source code because I would need to change it whenever I upgrade to a newer version. I had to adapt your solution RewriteRule ^/?(html/\w+\.(js|css))$ /admin/$1 [L] but it worked :)
