Fedora Servers :: MySQL CPU Usage Spiking?

Oct 15, 2009

Having major problems with mysqld causing CPU usage to rocket to 100% on one core for a short time, which usually drops back down again to 1-7%, though sometimes it can last an extended period of time. This is a problem because things using mysql become unresponsive in this time.

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache2 - HTAccess Will Not Work

Feb 9, 2010

I'm a newb when it comes to linux operating systems so I'm attempting to get better through experience. I work for a web development company and we use Ubuntu for our operating systems (the programmers at least). Anyways, I'm trying to install LAMP services and get them working. I have all L.A.M.P. services installed... but Apache2 is giving me a problem. I have an .htaccess file installed in a directory under my document root. But Apache2 is not interpreting it. I have AllowOverride All on but I can't figure it out. I did make a bogus .htaccess file attempting to make apache give me a error, nothing.

Ubuntu Servers :: Htaccess Won't Secure A Directory

Nov 22, 2010

I installed AWSTATS on my LAMP 10.04 LTS and followed several tutorials URL...) but I can't secure the folder, either by an alias or by .htaccess. I tried both methods manually and by using Webmin.If you go to the URL www.mywebsite/awstats/awstats.pl it shows up, which is good, but this is the default installation site and anyone who knows awstats could possibly see my stats. The conf folder is /etc/awstats/, and I did an alias for that, then .htacess, but neither worked. With the .htaccess, I would get a password promt but the full stats page was visible behind the password promt, and if you clicked "Cancel" about 20 times or so the promt would go away and the full stats page would be visible.

The actual file that powers awstats is in /usr/share/lib/cgi-bin/awstats.pl, and I also tried an Alias and .htaccess seperately and neither worked.I restarted apache2 after each change and I've searched several forums, but I still can't figure this out.

I have followed the tutorial from this site [URL]. I have changed this file /etc/apache2/sites-available/default and in this file I have changed AllowOverride None to AllowOverride All but still I get:

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@localhost and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. More information about this error may be available in the server error log. I have installed and reinstalled apache 2 time already.

Ubuntu Servers :: HTAccess Stopped Working For 301 Apache2

Apr 29, 2010

I am not sure what happened, but my .htaccess file is no longer working for my 301 redirects. I did have a hard time getting it working a few weeks back (when I first set it up), unfortunately I did not document it well. Main question is for multiple sites getting redirected, do I want the additional sites listed as aliases? My original setup virtual host config listed seven additional hostnames as aliases.

I later had difficulty with google listing these secondary domains within search result and hurting my page rank. So I setup 301 redirects, and from memory, I had to leave the alias names for the .htacces 301 redirect to work. Now it won't work either way. Can anyone tell me if the aliases need to be in place? Do I need to setup individual vhost files and add an .htacces 301 for each? What is the preferred way to do this? I tried reloading apache2 but it did not help.

Permissions for .htacces:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 eric www-data 866 2010-04-14 12:06 .htaccess
Attaced is my .htaccess. It resides in the site root directory. Also attached is the virtual host config file.

NameVirtualHost *
NameVirtualHost *:443
AddHandler cgi-script .pl
RewriteEngine On

I'm still not sure after hours of reading the various how-to's, what should the file permissions be for the .htaccess. I have not performed any updates during the period it was working till now.

Fedora Servers :: High CPU Usage When Starting Services On FC11?

May 9, 2010

so my server is doing fine, but there is one odd thing I would like to fix. When I start and stop services, the CPU is maxed out for about five seconds each time. The services start the same speed, but it still does this. Small things like lm_sensors don't do this, just things like httpd and sendmail. THis server was upgraded to Fedora 11 with a netinstall CD a few months ago.

Ubuntu Servers :: RewriteRule Works On .htaccess - But Not On Httpd.conf

Sep 29, 2010

We are trying to migrate from a centos server to ubuntu server, but we have some problems with an application called Topincs [url].

The installation is quite simple and I did it several time (but with ubuntu it's the first time).

Probably there are some parameters to set that I don't know, but even if the installation works fine and I can see the home page, the application doesn't work because RewriteRules aren't applied.

First I tried to ensure that mod_rewrite works fine and I found a weird situation: rewriterules work if they are in .htaccess but don't work if they are directly in http.conf.

Server :: Unhide Directory With .htaccess File

Jun 15, 2011

I am using Apache with Kerberos security enabled. The http page simply lists the directories contained in /var/www/html. I want to make only one of the directories in the document root secured so that when someone clicks on it, it requires him/her to enter credentials. Right now when I place the .htaccess file in the directory I want to protect, the directory is hidden from the list and the user has to enter the whole path to get authenticated and access the files.

I've tried Options +Indexes which was posted all over the net, but it didn't work.

Ubuntu :: Htaccess - Default File In Sites-available Folder?

Apr 27, 2011

I couldn't help but notice that there are some lines in the default file that resemble those that should be in a htaccess file.

AllowOverride None Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
allow from all


If I am running multiple virtual hosts, what happens to the default file? When I put my ip into a browser "http://ip.ip.ip.ip" I get a forbidden message. but all URLs point to where they are supposed to... Maybe its because I don't have an index file in the www folder.. (not at the machine, will try it later to see what happens).

Fedora :: Hidden Disk Space Usage \ Can't Figure Out Where The Runaway Usage Is?

Dec 10, 2010

I'm running into a problem where my system is running out of disk space on the root partition, but I can't figure out where the runaway usage is. I've had a stable system for a couple of years now, and it just ran out of space. I cleaned some files up to get the system workable again, but can't find the big usage area, and I'm getting conflicting results.For example, when I do a df it says I'm using 44GB out of 58 GB:

[root@Zion ~]# df -h

Software :: Write Access In .htaccess File On Hosted Server?

Apr 23, 2011

I have a site hosted on a cheap hosting company and I need to allow write access to certain users in certain directories, sometimes on a file basis.

Q: how do I do that in a .htaccess file?

I have never used .htaccess although from what I read it looks straightforward but when I try it, I get a "500 server error" even with the example .htaccess file the hosting company suggested I use. (I have informed the host as they require and am awaiting their answer)

The site is automatically set up with a couple of dot file in the root directory when I got it, they are:

.htaccess file
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile "/home/mydomain/www/www/.htpasswd"
AuthName Limited!
require valid-user

Q: Is there in this something overriding my .htaccess in a bad way? (googling for AuthName shed no light on my problem)


I added the user Bill, apparently successfully, the first line and .htaccess were set up by the host.

General :: Pcfg_openfile - Unable To Check Htaccess File - Ensure It Is Readable

Jul 8, 2010

After moving a website folder on my local development machine to another drive, then moving it back, I got a 403 error. Most of this problem had probably to do with rights that got messed up. After deleting the code and restoring it from SVN, the rights seemed allright. The error stayed however.

The setup is a bit complex, as follows:

I have Ubuntu 10.4 as development machine, trying to mimic the server as much as possible We use Eclipse + SVN and I create all projects in a local folder under my user account In /var/www-vhosts I create folders for each vhost, like this one: test.localhost test.local/index.php: includes the index file of the project
test.local/.htaccess is a dynamic link to the htaccess file in a project subfolder

I get the following error in the apache error log:

The problem seems to be the .htaccess file, or the link to it. When I empty the htaccess, nothing changes When I remove the link, the index-include produces some output (in the apache error log) When I remove the link and replace it with the actual file, I get another error:

Programming :: Apache Redirect - Core SEF URLs On - Using Htaccess.txt File That Came With Joomla

Apr 7, 2009

I have recently merged two Joomla 1.0 sites I ran into one. I imported the articles I wanted to keep to the new site, and I have the old site's domain pointing as an alias at the new site. The new site is www.theouthousers.com . The old site was www.bludblood.com .

I also have the core SEF URLs on, using the htaccess.txt file that came with Joomla.

I have one writer for the old site who linked to his articles in various places, so I am trying to set up redirects for him so that he doesn't have to change all of his links.

For instance, I need something like:


To redirect to the equivalent location on the new site:


And I also need specific links like:


To redirect to their new counterparts:


Keeping in mind that www.bludblood.com is now an alias of www.theouthousers.com, is there any way to do this? I have been trying with rewrite rules and redirects, and cannot seem to achieve the desired effect.

Tried various versions of:

Redirect [url] [url]

With the http, without, as regexps, as 301s, as permanents, etc, and it just will not work. Also tried as RewriteRule.
