Technical details: Could not establish trust relationship with remote server.

Ran into this issue with an old Windows Mobile PDA which couldn't connect to an SSL webservice yesterday.

Unable connect to database. Please contact your system administrator.
Technical details: Could not establish trust relationship with remote server.
The solution might be really dead simple, just check the date and time on the PDA,
if it's too far out of whack it can cause the SSL connection to fail.

You can guess the solution yourself

Mozilla Developer Network beats w3schools for HTML help

One of the terrible legacies of the modern web is that most search queries on Google relating to html / web technologies often have terrible results, usually involving w3schools, which has patchy, inaccurate and out of date content. Now if Google was nice, they would simply demote the shitty w3schools content, but there is an easy workaround, you can simply add MDN to your search and get results from the wonderful Mozilla Developer Network.

Using Oracle Views with Mapguide / FDO

Using views in Oracle is a good way to access data via Mapguide/FDO,
but in order to be able to select a feature, it must have a primary key,
otherwise, selection will fail.

This is the SQL syntax to add a primary key on an Oracle View
alter view add constraint primary key () disable novalidate;

Once the view has a primary key, selection becomes available.

Performance Tip for Mapguide Tiled layers with Fusion

Internally, Fusion uses OpenLayers to display maps. By default, titled maps use a buffer factor of 2

This buffer setting determines how many off screen tiles are loaded, you can tweak this option using the following syntax in your ApplicationDefinition.xml

                        <ResourceId>Library:// .....</ResourceId>

Setting buffer:0 means that only the initially visible tiles are loaded, which means as you pan, the tiles are loaded as required
