Problem:
Windows Server 2016, IIS Website, Setup a MySQL server/database, setup a WordPress website, quickly connect with root and root-password. Everything works fine!

Now you want things more secured, so you add a MySQL user with a password and rights to only the wordpress database. Change wp-config.php with the new login and you get a “Error Establishing a Database Connection” when accessing the WordPress website or admin.

Transparent calender items in Thunderbird

I am not the only person with this problem:
Something calendar entries in Lightning register as status Tentative and it shows in a different transparent shade of the calendar color. I can manually change the status to confirmed directly in lightning however that is a pain. Plus, it sounds crazy but having these entries a different shade/color drives me nuts.

for a way to deal with this… except of course, it is not the complete solution and only works after a slight modification. So what to do:

Add following css code to your userChrome.css file, mostly found at C:\Users\»your username«\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\»some random letters«\chrome
If last folder and/or userChrome.css don’t exist, just create them.

Edit the file and add the following content:

calendar-event-box[invitation-status="TENTATIVE"],
calendar-editable-item[invitation-status="TENTATIVE"],
calendar-month-day-box-item[invitation-status="TENTATIVE"],
calendar-event-box[status="TENTATIVE"],
calendar-editable-item[status="TENTATIVE"],
calendar-month-day-box-item[status="TENTATIVE"],
agenda-richlist-item[status="TENTATIVE"],
agenda-richlist-item[invitation-status="TENTATIVE"] {
opacity: 1 !important;
}

That’s all folks! Good luck!

So let’s make it a decision tree and hopefully make it easier. Continue reading center
