MAMP Apache won’t start in OS X Yosemite


You’ve started to use OS X Yosemite and even if you do use the official release and not the beta there is some trouble starting Apache with MAMP? The problem do occur using both MAMP (I’m using version and MAMP PRO.

There is a simple solution to the problem:

Navigate to /Applications/MAMP/bin/apache2/bin using Finder (the ”bin” folder will be a shortcut), and rename the file envvars to _envvars - add a underscore to the filename only.

Thats it, now start the servers in MAMP or MAMP PRO and you´re good to go.

Facebook completely changed the guidelines for Facebook competitions

Have you noticed that Facebook completely changed the guidelines for Facebook competitions?
From start companies have violated the rules and guidelines for competitions on Facebook by using “like and share to win” and “like and comment to win” but now they can continue doing this and its allowed. In this post I’ll focus on the new rules and pros and cons using the different types of competitions.

What are the changes to the Facebook Competition Guidelines?
The most important change is that you now can run a competition directly on your Facebook Page Timeline. You do not need to use a application anymore. Many did not even know that competitions on the timeline was no allowed and did it long before the guidelinechanges so you might already have seen timeline competitions and promotions in your newsfeed.

You are now also allowed to use Facebook functionality as a entry to the competition (in most cases).
As an example you can post on your Page timeline:
Comment this post and win free pizza for a year! Continue reading
