Ubuntu Servers :: Server Is Partially Unresponsive?

Jul 16, 2010

I have a remote server which has been working perfectly for about 1 year. It is in a secure location and used for serving a local web-app, and we remote administer it through an OpenVPN tunnel, and previously a Hamachi tunnel.It has in the last few days become partially unresponsive. What I mean is that I can ping it fine through the VPN, and I can SSH into the box, but when I try to run some commands, it seems to freeze partway through, and I get the output interrupted and a blinking cursor. I have also tried to access the web-app through the VPN and while the page header in the browser changes to the correct page name, the actual page does not load.A reboot does not seem to have cleared the problem, although I cannot be certain at this moment that the reboot command actually completed, or froze partway through

Server :: Lighttpd - Slow HTTP POST Attack

Jan 31, 2011


I ran across the above article, which described a DoS attack in which requests are sent very slowly to the Web server. I'm running lighttpd 1.4.28 on a Gentoo Linux server, and I'm wondering if there is anything I could do in preparation to defend against such an attack.

A bug report [url] seems to indicate that there was a patch in place already against this sort of attack, but I wanted to be sure that was the same thing and if there was anything else I needed to do.

Software :: Cronjob Schedule To Run Php Script On Lighttpd Server Internally?

I know that you can access and run any script of the web by wget:



But this is literally accessing it externally through the web, i think that it is safer and faster to access the script internally. I am using lighttpd to host my php pages, and is there a way to do that? I have had some hosting experiences, the cronjobs on the hosts let u input:

Server :: In Apache Server, Change Log File Location And Log Format For Access Log Fil?

Aug 19, 2009

I installed Apache server with Debian 5.0.2 Lenny. I am trying to write a script which would analysis web log files. I found the log files on /var/log/apache2. There is an access log file, `access.log`. My question is what configuration file determines the location and the name of the access log file. How can I change them? I used CustomLog in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf like below.LogFormat ": %h %l %u %t "%r" %>s %b" common
CustomLog /home/test/my_log_file common Apache2 generated /home/test/my_log_file. But no logs were written in the file even after I run `/etc/init.d/apache2 restart`. Ichanged the log file location. It still didn't work. However, Apache2 still wrote logs in the file `/var/log/apache2/access.log`

Red Hat :: File System Corruption - Super Block Could Not Be Read Or Don't Describe A Clear Ext2 File System

Jul 12, 2010

My Redhat Enterprise Linux 4 with 6x partitions (/, /boot,/home, /usr, /var, /tmp) of 6.0 GB IDE Hardisk was working quite fine. I decided to create LVM on /home and /var partitions but due to some errors occured and I delete the /home partitions. That's why partition table altered. I then delete 4,5,and 6th partitions (/home, /var, /tmp) partitions and now try to create one by one but following error is coming:-

General :: Can't Make Clear On Most Manpages - Can't Simply Usebzip2 File?

Feb 5, 2010

What they don't make clear on most manpages is that you can't simply usebzip2 that gives bzip2 free rein to include the original extension in the filename. You must use the -c tag (and better than that, the -c and -k tags, the latter of which leaves the original file untouched post-compression), then -if you wish- the level of compression to apply to a file (in the range of 1-9, with 1 being next-to-no compression and 9 the highest level of compression), followed by the filename/s to compress, then after a single space, a right-hand carat (">"), then another single space and the name you want to give the compressed bzip2 file, remembering to add the extension ".bzip2" (no quotes) to your filename.

Sounds pretty obvious, doesn't it? Well, I thought so too once I read a particular manual page and reasoned it out. Then I remembered the 15 or so minutes it took me to Google myself to that manpage, and I decided it was good Net citizenship to put up a little step-by-step like this one on an appropriate forum on which I was already a registered member.

It isn't just the C++ heads or the Python jockeys who need things broken down to their simplest bits for them from time to time. Newbies and near-newbies do, too. I took it as read that was the reason for this subforum, so here I went.

Server :: Clear /var/cache/apt/archives On My Dedicated ?

Feb 4, 2010

I have a dedicated server and I am having email issues etc (seemingly) because the /var directory is 97% full

I would like to know if it is safe to clear it and how to clear it (assuming it will not disrupt/kill server services to do so).

I have a 'Matrix' control panel so i can view the storage etc but it does not have an way of clearing the /Var directory.

I have Putty Access to root but do not know much about command line access.

I found a few threads but the information is not clear to me as there seems to be an assumption of (basic?) knowledge I don't yet have.

My linux support guru that usually does this kind of thing for me is away and not contactable and my server is grinding to a halt and unable to store/send email.

I have only a very basic understanding of command line but really need to get this sorted ASAP.

Is it possible and SAFE to delete files via FTP from the /var/cache/apt/archives?

Server :: Cannot Access /var/log/apache2/*: No Such File Or Directory

I am trying to access log file which located in /etc/log/apache2. I could get into the directory using `su`. I was able to run ls command under the directory and everything was file. I could run a command,

ls -d /var/log/apache2/*

However after I switched to my account, I got an error. sudo ls -d /var/log/apache2/* ls: cannot access /var/log/apache2/*: No such file or directory

I want to use this command in a bash script to get a list of log files. Should I write the script as root and run it as root?

Server :: Debian File Access Monitoring

Sep 16, 2010

I'm running a Debian/Samba PDC on a Windows network. We desire to monitor a few network shares, so that whenever a change is made to a file in those, we have a log of who did it and when. Some capability of seeing what the change was, or a way of reverting it, would be nice luxuries. But username and timestamp are most important, if possible.

On the debian forums, someone advised using Tripwire for this purpose. didn't give much other advice about it so I kind of struck out on my own researching tripwire. got it installed, played wth it, and found it problematic, to say the least. It seems a bit much on the complexity and security side, and it seems more oriented towards maintaining system integrity, than monitoring documents. So far I've not managed to get a policy update working on account of a cascade of errors about a few hundred files under /proc disappearing, despite no changes to the I'm wondering if anyone here has advice.

1. Does debian have this sort of functionality built in? is there a system log I can parse to get this information?
2. Is tripwire the right application for our purpose?
3. Is there anything better suited, more user-friendly or more parsimonious. I don't need something to monitor all system files, guard against intrusion, and make me cups of tea, just to monitor a few folders that I specify
