As like any server geek, I like to benchmark whatever new recipe I am cooking. Geekbench is one of many tools I use to measure performance. Geekbench is easy, not too much resource extensive, so you could run it even in live production server, which everything keep working as it is. But I would suggest you run those operation in your low hour.
Here is very simple guide to run Geekbench in your Linux server.
home_url() and site_url() in WordPress is very simple thing, but could be little bit confusing. Look at the image, then I described below –
From Setting -> General
1) WordPress Address (URL) = site_url()
2) Site Address (URL) = home_url( )
You could force rewrite that from wp-config.php too. Remembering is easy, its just opposite to what is says, so in Setting “Site Address (URL)” is home_url not the site_url as it looks from the words. Savvy?
If you are testing something new, there is always chance to break things, that’s why you should always have a fail-safe system. Thing is sometime situation could be a bit different.

split() is a very common PHP function. Here I am not going to discuss its usage. But I will give a super simple solution for the error “Deprecated: Function split() is deprecated“. This error is annoying, and will happen to everyone using
split() function. So, keep reading for the super easy solution.
Why We Are Getting This Error Suddenly?
preg_split(), which uses a Perl-compatible regular expression syntax, is often a faster alternative to split(). If you don’t require the power of regular expressions, it is faster to use explode(), which doesn’t incur the overhead of the regular expression engine.
And, apparently “split” is removed as of PHP 5.3.x, in the preparation for PHP 6.0.
This is a very very basic tips for ssh command. When you enter into a new system or a old system of your own, and need find its Operating System (OS), version, hostname and that type basic info then this very basic command will help. Again its very basic, and everybody have interest or planing to work on server should know.

This is the most basic and most working command. Some geeks guys explain it like their “first point of reflex” when they enter into a new server. This command works in most OS, like all builds of Linux, Mac etc.
