It's about process and policy as well as tools. I think you need a more holistic approach such as those outlined in the CIS benchmarks. I would consult the new Ubuntu one just released as well as the Apache one if you'll be running Apache as your web server.

I think I may have figured out the issue - It has to do with the long password.I think that this should reported as a bug to MySQl and MariaDB developers because on installation you can create a password with over 100 characters but when you try to login to MySQl or MariaDB when it is in production you get the above error. So glad I figured this out after ...

For what I can read from the NMAP manual there are 6 states (at least for NMAP): Open State An application is actively accepting TCP connections, UDP datagrams or SCTP associations on this port. Finding these is often the primary goal of port scanning. Security-minded people know that each open port is an avenue for attack. Attackers and pen-testers ...

This is happening a lot to me too. There are a lot of script kiddies trying brute force attacks against your SSH server.

You can use ssh-agent to do this. It allows you to store a passphrase in memory, rather than on disk. There is a good explanation of doing this for batch jobs here: http://www.akadia.com/services/ssh_agent.html. Essentially, you: Run ssh-agent in the background as the user that will be initiating the SSH connection. Use the ssh-add command to add the key ...

In both cases your server must got: ip address network mask default gateway dns server My opinion is to put fix ip address on server nic card. First reason is that, you must know ip address if you wish to access resources on server. Second reason, server is accessible on LAN if router with dhcp is down. If you wish to access server from public network ...

Figured it out: (I'm guessing that) since I installed the OS on a different computer than the one it is currently in, the system was configured to use that computers' hardware as the default for 'eth0' (and I can't wait to see what other issues this will cause...)

Once all the source code is released (server side currently isn't open source) then yes. But there's no guarantee that the community will maintain the code once it's open sourced. This is not to suggest any lack of faith in the community but that other open source options exist, more of which later. There are several alternatives that are worth exploring. A ...

Open the terminal and type: sudo apt-get install php5 In Ubuntu 12.04 this command will install php5 version 5.3.10 .

It would be easier to troubleshoot your problem if you posted the results you are getting when trying to ping an external address (like the Google DNS servers you're using), the current network settings, and your routing table. /sbin/ifconfig -a /sbin/route -n Without knowing more this is a bit of a shot in the dark, but my guesses are that either a) you ...

It appears that my files were not accessible after copying them over from a Windows system to Ubuntu. Having this said, I had to modify the permissions of my project directory to 766. I did this with the following command: chmod -R 766 /My/Directory/Path/ After this my files were showing up normally in the web browser.

If you set a static IP address in /etc/network/interfaces, you are also responsible to set up DNS nameservers. I suggest you try: # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.171.132 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.171.1 dns-nameservers 8.8.8.8 ...

For others looking (googling) for this issue check that if you run: chkconfig |grep httpd you get httpd 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off else do: chkconfig httpd on (sorry on ubuntu chkconfig equivalent is update-rc.d see Chkconfig alternative for Ubuntu Server?)

As bodhi.zazen mentions, the easiest way is to just put a light OS on the less powerful machine. Other options will require a lot more work. Dual booting as terdon suggests only lets you use one OS at a time, which from my understanding of your question is not what you are looking for. You can also run some kind of virtualization software on your more ...

I have found the issue and resolved it. I had followed the guide linked above which suggested this file needed to be edited: /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/default-ssl.conf, Actually it didn't exist - I though I had deleted it so I recreated it.

Solved. The problem was the mixing that some process make between the /var/run and /var/lock folders with the new /run and /run/lock folders. I found the solution in this link http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1859432. I just have made the ln's and the network start ok after rebooting.

[cdrom]/install/filesystem.squashfs contains a pre-installed version of ubuntu-keyring, and the ubuntu-keyring package within /pool/ on the CD is not installed prior to apt-cdrom being executed by debian-installer - therefore apt-cdrom fails to verify the modified Release file, and apt won't touch the packages on the CD.

Usually those VPS providers only support certain versions of your OS with Plesk, etc. I run into exactly the same problem as you some time ago.

The problem I believe you are having is when you do a dd the new drive still does not have the same guid as the old drive.
