I’ve been in digital marketing for over 20 years, and the only way you can stay relevant that long is to read a lot. In digital marketing, if you don’t learn, you die. Period. I look for Solid web technology insight, website analysis, SEO updates and security tips for Joomla and WordPress owners.

Fix PHP and blank screen



De-activate Akeeba admin


De-active Secret Key

No Access to Secret Key

If you DO NOT have access to the Administrator / Administration panel of the website because you have enabled 2FA and you know can't log in, you'll need to disable it via PHPMyAdmin 

  1. From your hosting account log into PHPMyAdmin
  2. Find the table ending in  '_extensions' (the first few digits/letters vary by installation)
  3. Find the plugin named plg_twofactorauth_totp and change its 'enabled' status from '1' to '0'
  4. Save

This disables the 2FA plugin and thus gets rid of the login with the secret key.

It's Time for A Major Transformation in The Digital Marketing Ecosystem

Digital Marketing Ecosystem

Adtech is riddled with fraud. It’s time that brands and publishers take control and rebuild trust in the digital advertising industry.

Trust is the foundation of every successful business organization, but you’d never know it by looking at the digital marketing industry. Customers are often told the internet is free, when in reality, they’ve been paying for it with their personal information. Their personal data is often collected (sometimes without their knowledge) and then utilized in the form of advertising.

Digital Marketing

Digital marketing is such a minefield of misinformation that even the biggest brands (like the BBC and BMW) make mistakes. Don’t do what these six companies did!
