About Stefan Helander
I was born a nerd! As a child I was fond of fiddling with all kind of thechnical stuff, discovering how things work and often fixing them. As a 6 year old I fixed my grandmothers 220 volts wiring.
The interest in technical stuff grown even bigger in the teenage years where I got my amateur radio license and developed a keen interest in computers.
Today I am proud to be a nerd. It is a part of my profession.
To all of you nerds and geeks out there - remember that nerd is the new sexy! :)

The problem was that the arrow was not displaying. It turned out it was a collission with the theme, Cherry Framework 4. In the settings of the […]
With Microsoft Windows 10 Fall Creators update many users have ran into problems updating becuase their computer was installed with a too small EFI partition (100 MB). I’d consider this a warranty issue with the computer supplier, becuase obviously the computer wasn’t Windows 10 ready. The problem is that the hardware supplier will happily take […]
When you disable breadcrumbs in Cherry Framework 4, it still reserves space for it in the header/title section of the page. This is a bit annoying, because it makes the title wrap when there still is space on the right side. A simple CSS solution can fix this. By applying this, the breadcrumbs will not […]
Being unable to login to your WordPress site, the first step is to follow this guide. In a client case, none of the suggested steps helped and we were still locked out. It turned out that the plugin causing the lockout (error message invalid username or password) was Invisible reCaptcha. It is possible to enable […]
After updating a multi server installation of Ispconfig3 problems occured when editing existing or adding new websites on one of the servers. If the site had SSL enabled the apache2 vhosts file for the site (located in /etc/apache2/sites-availible) would get empty values for SSLCertificateFile, SSLCertificateKeyFile and SSLCertificateChainFile fields, causing it to revert to old configuration or […]
Clients moving over to Office 365 who had purchased a valid SSL certificate for their mail server still got SSL certificate errors in Outlook and mobile clients. This was despite the mail service was equipped with a valid SSL certificate (not self signed, but issued by a real CA). It turns out here that Outlook […]
