Fedora :: How To Remotely Edit Root Files

Dec 31, 2009

I have rented a remote dedicated fedora 7 system. The service provider provisioned the system and does not allow direct "root" access to the system.

I currently use putty to login into "user1", switch to "root" using su -, and then edit the file.

I would like to edit the "root" file directly from my home XP system which has a SFTP connection to the remote fedora 7 system (using Aptana RadRails).

I am not sure how to do that. I had 2 ideas but I am just guessing and afraid to proceed with so little knowledge.

I considered editing /etc/group and changing the line
from
root:x:0:root
to

Server :: Edit Files Remotely From LAMP Ubuntu With Ubuntu Desktop?

Nov 24, 2010

I am sure this is merely a permissions issue, but unfortunately trying everything I can think of as well as google-ing has not provided me with a solution. Just for reference, my desktop and server are both running Ubuntu 10.04, with their respective Desktop and Server distributions.

I can remotely connect with SSH to my server, but I can't edit files (or at least the files I am trying to edit) remotely. I can connect remotely and edit them with VIM, but I would like to be able to use SciTE to modify the files. I am specifically trying to edit files under the /var/www directory, as well as the /etc/apache2/apache2.conf file.

Ubuntu :: Admin / Root Rights Login To Edit And Read Files

Feb 12, 2011

I'm a new Ubuntu user and a Python programmer, it's the first time that I use Python in Ubuntu so it's a bit confusing me. If I want to save a Module or something in a specified map, I get 'Errno 13', it says that I don't have permission to edit, do thing in that map. And this is also for importing files with Python. I logged in from Terminal with 'sudo -i' and closed Terminal, but the problem keeps repeating. How do I login as Admin or Root and stay as Admin or Root? I need right to edit/read files as well as root and normal user.

An example:
Python file:
test.py ->
test = open('/a.txt', 'w')
test.write('Test - Test - Test')
test.close

When I execute this, I get in the Python IDLE the 'Errno 13' problem and below the 'Errno 13' it says that I don't have permission. Who know how to stay logged in as root, even if the user has not logged in or isn't this possible, if it isn't then I just want to get files moving, editing/erasing etc.

Fedora :: Access Files Remotely But Remain Secure?

Mar 15, 2010

I would like to be able to access my data file that reside on my Linux machine at home from the Internet but I don't want to open any "doors" for lack of a better word that will compromise the security of my files. I am running F11 and I am using cable broadband and a Linksys router.I have been able to get ssh working with OpenSSH while I am at home but I don't really need or want to ssh remotely, I would rather setup what I think is called an ftp. I just want to be able to up and download files to my Linux machine.

Fedora :: Access Folders From Live CD To Edit Installed Files

Feb 28, 2010

I am trying to install Fedora 10 on an old P3 Inspiron 5000. When I boot from the Live cd the screen is split into three sections and is hard to navigate. I am able to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and log out and log back in to proceed with the installation. The problem is when I finish the installation and reboot to the new OS it boots to the triple section mode again because my xorg.conf is not edited. To do any commands in Fedora I need to get through a brief user setup in which I cannot navigate through until I can see the screen better. Is there a way to boot to a graphical type safe mode so I can see the whole screen to finish the installation?
How can I access folders from the live cd to edit the installed files? This way I can edit the xorg.conf file before booting and all would be legible.

Ubuntu :: Remotely Downloading Files Through SSH

Mar 27, 2011

How to set up a script to log on to a server through SSH, copy file from the server to the local machine, and then run a script on the downloaded file. More specifically, I've got a minecraft sever that is run on ubuntu.

I know that I can do
# ssh username@ipaddress
to log on to the server through the terminal.

After this it asks me for a password. Once I type in the password I have access to the directories on the server. How can I set up a script to log on to the server and enter password? Once I do this, how do I automate it to copy a file from that server to ~/Desktop? If I can do this, I have a script that will run from there.

I've learned that I can do
scp -r remoteuser@remotebox:/remote/directory /local/directory to copy files from a server to my local machine, but it still asks me for the server password. how do I make it so that the password is automatically entered?

Ubuntu :: Read-only Root And Can't Edit Fstab

Apr 19, 2010

I was unable to boot into Ubuntu 9.1 today because the file system is now read only. When I check fstab, it shows "ro" but I can't change it because it's on a read only file system. I tried umounting the root then remounting with read/write access, but I was unable to umount the root. I also tried booting with a live CD, but all I can find is the root.disk file, I can't see any of the file structure. That's probably just how it is supposed to be, but I'm new to Linux so I found it strange. method to either change the disk to read/write besides this?sudo umount /mount -o remount,rw /The other option would be to somehow mount the disk image while using a live CD so that I can get to the fstab file and edit it.

Ubuntu :: How To Edit File Owned By Root

May 31, 2010

I am trying to edit limits.conf, changed file permissions:
sudo chmod limits.conf -rwxrwxrwx

But got this message:
"Could not save the file /etc/security/limits.conf. You are trying to save the file on a read-only disk. Please check´╗┐ that you typed the location correctly and try again."

I followed these instructions:
"copy - paste this code into terminal
gedit $HOME/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/Open as root
copy-paste this text into that file and push 'save'
for uri in $NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_URIS; do
gnome-sudo "gnome-open $uri" &
done

now copy-paste this code into terminal
chmod +x $HOME/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/Open as root

Now you can right click on the file you want to edit, select 'scripts' and say 'open as root' to let you modify it". [URL] the right click worked but the file didn't open.

Ubuntu :: Download Files From HTTP Server Remotely

Dec 13, 2010

I have a question about using ubuntu to download files from an HTTP server remotely and didn't know where to put it, so hopefully it falls under general support. Anyway, I am about to move into a place with an incredibly slow internet connection and a tiny data allowance and my brother has said that, if possible, I can use his internet connection to download any large files to a box I can just leave at his place, then I can simply come over to his place every few weeks and copy said files to a hard drive and all will be well. The problem is that I am not sure how to do this.

Today I went out and bought a few parts and built a cheap computer with a HDD big enough to hold whatever I need, however when I got home I realised I had no idea how I was going to handle the software aspect of this. Is there any way that I can access that computer remotely over the internet and schedule fairly large downloads from an http server? Also after talking to a friend I was told that I need to install the server version of ubuntu if this is to work, is this correct? Also, if its relevant the specs of the computer I have for this is using an "Intel Desktop Board D510M0 + Intel Atom Processor D510" which uses 64 bit architecture.
