Claim Your Google Adsense Earnings Through Unionbank of the Philippines Wire Transfer

I have been receiving Google Adsense earnings through Western Union every month for the past couple of years. This month, days before my scheduled payout, I got a notification from Google to change my payment method from Western Union to a wire transfer. Over the years, I only use my wife's Unionbank account in all my online transaction so I am not sure if I can use it for Google Adsense. I can only try to add it so I did.

I use the form below to add the new payment method. I only filled up the name on the bank account, bank name, SWIFT BIC, and account number.

On the date of payout, I received an email from Google that they sent the money already. I was anxious because I am not sure if that would go through the bank. The bank did not notify my wife or anything.

[Fixed] Call to undefined function GuzzleHttp\Handler\curl_reset() Error

I operate a couple of job portals that accept online applications. The applications are sent directly to the employer's email. One day, all of the sites cannot send any applications. I was receiving the following error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function GuzzleHttp\Handler\curl_reset() in /home3/boyiboyi/public_html/wp-content/plugins/gmail-smtp/google-api-php-client/vendor/guzzlehttp/guzzle/src/Handler/CurlFactory.php on line 78

I am using a 3rd party SMTP management plugin called Gmail SMTP Plugin so I contacted them. They checked the error and said everything was fine on their side. They suggested updating my PHP version.


So, I went to the CPanel dashboard in my Hostgator hosting and updated the PHP version from 5.4 to 5.6.

It fixed the error for all of my sites.

How to update the PHP version in Hostgator:

1. Login to your customer portal.
2. Go to Hosting and click on Hosting dashboard
3. Click on manage databases and click Home on the newly opened tab. The class…
