Once phpMyAdmin is installed, it's best to deny access to the /phpmyadmin path from the internet as many automated scripts will be scanning your web server for potential routes into your system. I've seen this activity hitting my servers as soon as they are publicly available.

Lock down phpMyAdmin connections to allow from 127.0.0.1 only - we will use an SSH tunnel to connect.

Whilst trying to run my php scripts from the command line, I kept getting the following error:

PHP Deprecated: Comments starting with '#' are deprecated in /etc/php5/cli/conf.d/mcrypt.ini on line 1 in Unknown on line 0

Fortunately this is nothing to worry about and is easily solved

Our arrival on Ihla do Mel (Honey Island) was delayed by one day as we had been unable to draw out any cash from the ATMs in Paranagua – it was a Sunday and all banks we tried seemed to have the same fault: no connection to the VISA network.

The advertised 1.5 hour journey turned into a 2.5 hour journey, but it was pleasant enough if not a bit noisy with the chug chug chugging of the old engine.
