Unable to find the socket transport “ssl” – did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP?, xampp 1.8.1

Enabling SSL Socket Transport in Xampp 1.8.1

2. Then open php.ini which is located in '\xampp\php.'

3. Find libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll in xampp\php\ folder, and copy it into  xampp\apache\bin\ folder. Just overwrite the older files in there.

4. Edit php.ini file in xampp\apache\bin, remove the semicolon in “;extension=php_openssl.dll”

Drupal site going frequently offline

If your Drupal 6.x site is going offline frequently in a regular interval of time then your Backup & Migrate module might be causing that problem. What seems to happen is when the module initiates the backup at the predefined time period the site goes into offline mode [that's if you've configured it that way] but is unable to come back to the online mode.

If the culprit is Backup & Migrate then follow the instruction below to fix it:

1. Go to /admin/content/backup_migrate/profile
2. If you've created a profile other than the Default Settings profile edit that profile else edit the Default Setting profile.
3. Click on Advanced Options and Uncheck the box "Take site offline."

That should help.

Increase Max Upload Size in phpMyAdmin

To increase the max upload size in phpMyAdmin simply change this value in php.ini file. This file is located inside the php folder. Once changed restart your Apache server.

post_max_size = 100M
upload_max_filesize = 100M

Keep both the above values equal else phpMyAdmin will use the smallest values from both the given values.
