General :: Log Out Of Command Line Without Shutting Down The Server
Feb 14, 2011
I am accessing a linux server remotely from my putty. I started the server and now I want to close the command line. when I do cntr+c or cntr+z it kills my server aswell. how will I close my terminal without closing my server? I tried cntr +d but it is not doing anything
I want my server to automatically shutdown at 23:59 and startup at 8:00. The startup is handled through by bios but the shutdown is to be managed through cron. I thought I had this working, I actually swear I had it working because I thought the uptime command showed the appropriate uptime. I happened to be up and was streaming a movie from my server when at the time it should've shutdown it actually just restarted. If I run the shutdown -h now command by itself it works well but the scheduled command just restarts the server. Here is the what is shown when I enter crontab -e.
Total, total noob here, but I would like to know if this is possible, and maybe some tips on how to do it if it is.I just got myself a dedicated server, and I guess I assumed I could just remote control it via my own screen, much like using vnc or remote desktop, but that wasn't the case.The server has Debian 5.0, a "minimal install" is what they called it, I assume it's just installed and not configured at all.1. Connect to the server, and I guess the only way is via telnet? Since I have no VNC or remote desktop (yeah, microsoft, I know, but I don't know what it's called for Linux/GNU).2. Can I install VNC or somehow "activate" or "open" the GUI via telnet, much like a remote desktop kind of solution? I have used Debian's GUI on my laptop a couple of times, and I'm a total Windows-user, but I can navigate the graphical interface. I'm just COMPLETELY nulled when it comes to command line.So yeah, I guess I'm wondering how the heck I can remote control the server via a GUI, preferably VNC, and if I can install it via telnet or however I'm supposed to connect to the server?
I am trying to ssh into my server from the command-line without including the username in the url. I do not want it to send any username, as it currently takes the active account and sends that as user.ex:
ssh server.com -> (doesn't send default username)
instead of [URL] I would want to input username directly into the server, just like it is done using putty on windows. he wants to be prompted for a username, rather than having to provide one when connecting - but I don't really see the utility in such a thing. - birryree Sep 8 at 17:41
ok well i installed Ubuntu 10.10 like 2 weeks ago on my computer and I have Spent like A week and a half trying to shut down the X Server. I am trying to install an nvidia driver to my computer... all of the option and ways to do it would be helpfull... any more information needed i will give to you (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.44.run)
i've gotten my fedora 12 to the point where i can run python3 scripts from command line and can call up python 2.6.2 idle with the command 'idle' from command line. what command will call up python3 (3.1.2 to be exact) idle?
I was having so much trouble with ubuntu 8.04 that I deleted off my computer and did a fresh install of 9.10. I downloaded the 64 bit iso from the internet, burned it to a disc and installed it. When it asked if it should be the server version I thought I said no. Now when I boot it only boots to the server version and all I get is command line. Can I get out of this and get my regular ubuntu screen back or did I install the wrong version?
I know my way around MS Windows much better, but I just don't feel right trying to program something for Android on a Microsoft operating system. I am interested in Android programming so I followed the instructions on [URL] to install the environment on my computer...
I just installed the JDK, SDK, Eclipse successfully (or I assume):
* When I get to Step 4 where I'm supposed to run 'android' it will not run. I get the error message "android: command not found" (I am definitely in the right directory).
** When I double-click it in nautilus, it opens up in gedit. I can set the permissions in nautilus (through the properties - Allow executing file as a program) and get it to work,
Whilst I have used GUI-based Linux distros for the last few years, I am now struggling somewhat when it comes to setting up a server from the command line. All the howto's I've read so far tell you how to set up certain things, but I don't know what I actually need to set up.Rather than asking the same questions all over again on a forum like this, and generally being a bit of a noob, I wonder if there's a resource somewhere that someone could direct me to in order to know what I need to do to set up a fileserver.
The hardware is all done, and I will probably set up a router distro like IpCop to manage the network, but I'm rather lost as to what packages I need, and how to know what the server is/isn't doing.I've used plenty of command lines in the past (ms dos, amiga dos, BASIC programming etc), just not a linux command line. All I've ever done is mount a few drives, use nmap and started x
I was using Red Hat 7.3 forever and decided it was time for a change. I went to Fedora 10 but it was really buggy. CentOS 5.2 is VERY stable.Here is my problem.The server is command line only -- I tend to hate GUI"S.I setup Samba no problem disabling the ports needed through the firewall and that was straightforward.CUPS is a nightmare for me since CentOS locks down the cupsd.conf and then the firewall does its thing. I allowed port 631 through the firewall but then got lost on the cupsd.conf. It's been too long and the old redhat one won't work with CentOS (not surprising since it's a VERY old system) straight-forward CUPS tutorial for a command line interface. I just need it to be:
Whenever I try and use php from the command line, I get this message:PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib64/php/modules/imagick.so' - /usr/lib64/php/modules/imagick.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0The problem isn't the missing module, it is the warming message itself -- it is breaking scripts that rely on the output.I tried shutting off errors, changed my error reporting to:
I just got done installing Ubuntu Server 10.04 on a home server. Now what should I do? I was hoping to have 3 computers connected to it so that we can all share files wirelessly if that's possible.Does Ubuntu Server have a GUI or command line only?
Running: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 5.2 (Tikanga) I need to be able to automate transferring a few files over from one server to another using scp or the sftp protocol. I have received a text file which looks like a key file along with username and passphrase information for the target server in question.
Instructions were given to me to import the provided text file in puttyGen then save the imported key as a private key to be used by scp or sftp. My assumption is this is for windows utilities, which I am not using. My frustration comes in trying to automate logging into this server via sftp or scp to automate some file transfers. I am asked for a password every time because the public and private key methods failed to find my keys. How can I call scp or the sftp utilities and use the provided key file (the one I generated using puttyGen or the original one provided to me) to login to this server? I've tried taking the generated ppk file from puttygen and adding it with the ssh-add command but that still did not work.
I install software called Sunflow v0.07.2 in my Ubuntu. When I try to run it,it says "API error : JVM available memory is below 800 MB (found 728 MB only). Please make sure you launched the program with the -Xmx command line options". What is that xmx command line.What should i do to run Sunflow.
Would anyone be so kind as to point me to a good reference for how use the command line to configure a directory to be shared in the directory properties?I know how to do it using graphical tools such as Nautilus, Konqueror, and Gnome's shares-admin, but I'd like to know how to do with via command line, because, once you know the commands, the command line is always quicker.I guess you could say I'm looking for a command line method for sharing directories in much the same way that chmod sets permissions from the command line.
