2014 Toyota 4runner reverse camera wire for aftermarket radio wiring.

This took me an extremely long time to figure out so I want to share it on the internet in hopes of saving someone a little time. For anyone out there who is trying to hook up an after-market radio while retaining a factory backup camera, please take a look at these photos. The red wire inside the 28 pin connector on the radio side will need to be con nected to your aftermarket radio reverse detection wire. The harness I purchased was the Scosche CRTTA02 Camera Retention Harness 2.

This is the wire that needs to be connected to your after market radio reverse wire

This is the brown wire inside the Scosche harness that needs to come out … it does not actually connect to anything on the radio side. This brown wire is what needs to be connected to the red wire in the image below.
Here is another look at the wire/pin we need to zero in on.

Update WordPress Automatically Without Using FTP credentials

In some cases, you are not able to update/upgrade your WordPress and plugins to a newer version without providing your FTP connection information. This is a common issue whereby the WordPress system can’t write to your /wp-contentfolder directly.

To solve this issue you need to define the FTP details in your wp-config.php file so WordPress will remember it. Alternatively, you may also provide WordPress with write access to your /wp-content folder by accessing the FTP root file and changing the folder file permission (CHMOD) to 775 rather than the default 755 and 644.

There is however an easier way to deal with this; by defining constantFS_METHODin your wp-config.php file. This bypasses WordPress’s recurring prompts, and allows auto-updates of your files to happen. And it takes only 1 line of code to do this.

1. Open /wp-config.php

Now the first thing you need to do is to open the wp-config.php file from your WordPress root folder (you may access this file from your WordPress installerfolder). From the installation folder, the file is located at wordpress/wp-config.php

2. Insert FS_METHOD

Paste the following code to your wp-config.php file, preferably just below every other line of code.


3. Save and upload

When you have already pasted the one-line code, you can proceed to upload the file to your WordPress root folder on your server, and it should work right away. Uploading can be done directly from your host control panel.

Developers Beware. Github is now owned by Microsoft

To my dismay, I learned that GitHub has been purchased by the mighty Microsoft corporation. Many open source developers are now under the watchful eye of the closed source, for-profit corporation Microsoft. I would advise everyone to move their projects elsewhere if it’s not too late already. Part of me thinks Microsoft was already granted a copy of all data before the news went public.
