Ubuntu Servers :: Moving Var/www And MySQL Databases

Aug 12, 2010

Quick searches did not bring forth any standard solution.

I have installed Ubuntu Server 10 (x64) using LVM with two disks (this is a Virtual Machine on VMWare ESXi4)

During install I selected only disk 1, and LVM guided Installation Added LAMP and SSH

Server gives only a text mode configuration, great if you are a linux guru, but I am not so it took a bit to find a stripped down GUI. None could be found but I did the following:

apt-get install xorg gdm gnome-core (minimal Gnome install)
apt-get install gnome-system-tools (users and *****s, time)
apt-get install gnome-network-admin (network config)
apt-get install update-notifier (updates)


I have created a similar system with Ubuntu, now I wish to move the var/www directory to sda1, and the databases from MySQL.

Server :: Moving Mysql Databases From Old Hdd?

Mar 25, 2010

I need to move mysql databases from my hard drive which is currently in external box. I can't boot the drive since the laptop is down. Nothing of the distribution on the drive is missing. I just need to know which files/folders copy to my new computer to have all databases running. Old computer ran on Dreamlinux (Debian-based). I'm currently running Ubuntu 9.10.

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 - How To Sync MySQL Databases

Mar 8, 2011

I have a laptop and a desktop PC, both running Ubuntu 10.04 and both are configured the same way. I am using Unison-gtk to sync the data between both computers... This works for everything... except for my mysql databases. Any way to simply sync my mysql databases on both computers. Right now I need to do this table-per-table... and it is quite long to proceed like this. What I need is a script or a program (open and preferably free) that would just compare both databases (all the tables) and sync them either by updating existing tables or by creating them. This should work both ways... obviously. I could write a script for this, but I am sure there already is something for this out there.

Ubuntu Servers :: Restore MySQL Databases From Files?

Jun 8, 2010

How do I restore MySQL Databases from an old hdd with Ubuntu on it which won't boot? Information below is not necessary just explaining how I ended up in this situation. Today the harddrive crashed on one of my development servers and I have no recent backup of the MySQL databases on the server.

The stuff on the server weren't horrible important but it would still be nice if I were able to recover some of the files. This is the thing, I don't think the harddrive is entirely dead because it comes to a screen saying harddrive error something enter to continue then it says GRUB in the upper left corner before the computer crashes/reboots.

So I installed Ubuntu server on a new HDD and now I want to attempt to recover the databases from the old HDD by mounting it in Ubuntu but before trying I would like to know who one does that. As I've understood it's a bit more complicated then one might thing because MySQL uses binaries and not plain-files.

If I run the command outside of CRON, it creates the backups no problem, but CRON is not doing anything.

Aug 2, 2011

Rebooted my server after some funky stuff started happening with mysql. Turns out the drive that stores the mysql databases has gone missing. I did an fdisk, and the partition table is gone. I used gpart to see if there were any partitions available & there were -- two + one swap. Can you help me put this back together I know very little about reconstructing a table to use... Here is the output of what I've talked about...

Programming :: MySQL Security - Remove The Ability To Make Test Databases?

Sep 29, 2010

I know very little about MySQL, but I've got some users that need it for testing on a Linux server.So I had set it up a while back, but now I'm running into some small problems.Right now, each user has his own database that I created and can do whatever with it. Each user only sees their own database.I didn't want them to be able to create new databases at all, but they can and when they do anyone can see them.

EDIT(Apparently they can only create databases beginning with the word "test" in the name)

I need to either:

1) Stop them from creating new databases (without affecting their ability to interact with the existing database)


2) Make it so that when they create a database, only they have privileges on it and only they can see it (except mysql root of course).

Anybody know the statement to set these kinds privileges up?

EDIT: pfft... I've a read a bit more and realize that this is an intended part of the installation.


I'd still like to remove the ability to make test databases.

EDIT3:Ok, for reference this is how you prevent users from making and using test databases:

shell> mysql -u root -p
Enter password: (enter root password here)
mysql> DELETE FROM mysql.db WHERE Db LIKE 'test%';

General :: Single Disk Space Quota Across Home Directories And Relational Databases (MySQL, PostgreSQL)?

Relational databases usually have their data over in /var/lib/something. Users are in /home (with data in /var/www). How can I apply a single total disk space quota across all of these independent software systems (file systems, RDBMS, etc.)?

Ubuntu :: Open Transferred Mysql Databases From An 8.04 Partition To A 10.04 Partition?

Sep 21, 2010

I transfered some mysql databases from an 8.04 partition to a 10.04 partition. They wouldn't open because the ownership & group was root:root since I transfered them as root. I looked at the original ownership of the files on 8.04 & found they were all "sane:124 ". I changed everything to mysql:mysql on the 10.04 partition & everything works O.K. now but I have no idea where that owner & group came from.

Two things I don't understand:

1 -Why I had to change ownership from root:root when I was logged in as root in mysql & the databases didn't show up?
2 - Where did the original "sane:124" ownership come from?

Debian Configuration :: ProFTPd Configuration - Use To Host MySQL Databases And A Few Websites

Nov 18, 2010

I am having no luck configuring ProFTPd on a Debian Lenny production server we use to host our MySQL databases and a few websites. I had originally set it up so I could login and manage our internal sites, but I have the need to allow a few clients in to access their sites that we host. I am trying to root the users in their site directory, which would be "/sites/www.whatever.com/".

It just hit me while typing this. Is it possible to create a user without a shell to prevent login via SSH and set the home folder to /sites/whatever instead of /home/username? That would allow me to continue operating with my current configuration and root them in their site while preventing SSH logins.

Ubuntu Servers :: Moving It To ESXi But Have No Network

I use the VMware Conversion tool and everythings goes well until I try to boot it from inside the VM, the network isn't detected. Now I understand that the drivers may not be working, I'm not an expert here. Also, since this is a 7.10 install I don't have access to the Gutsy repositories anymore.

Ubuntu Servers :: Moving Files From One Server To Another

Mar 10, 2011

I'm moving my site to a new VPS and need to learn how to move the files from my current server to the new one. I'd rather not download everything to my computer and then re-upload everything... seems like a lot of wasted time. There has to be a way to copy between the two servers, but how? I have heard someone mention rsync... is that a program I could use? If so, how?

Ubuntu Servers :: Moving Raid System To A New Host?

Aug 3, 2011

A while back I successfully set up a software raid (mdadm) install of ubuntu server on a cheap Compaq machine. I'm pretty sure it's running an nForce 430 chipset. Anyway, I put 3 2TB drives in it and set up two arrays: a small raid1 array for /boot and a raid5 array occupying the rest of the drives.

One point of note here is that the raid1 array never seemed to "take hold": the partition is empty, and the system has been booting entirely from the raid5 array. I'm not sure if this is relevant or not: just throwing it in there in case it is.

Anyway, I recently upgraded my desktop PC, and planned to hand down the Q6600 and DG33TL motherboard from it to the server. I did the hardware upgrade, but now the system will not boot. My question is: why.

Boot fails with the following error message:

"No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key"

This to me suggests that it's not even getting to the point of running grub2: the mobo itself just isn't finding anything it considers to be bootable.

I've tried all combinations I can think of of configuring the SATA support in the BIOS (modes include IDE, ACHI and RAID, all in combination with UEFI boot enabled and disabled). The system does detect the three drives: it lists them in the BIOS config screen.

I've booted from an ubuntu rescue USB drive and I'm able to see the drives and even assemble the array. I can mount the LVM partitions therein and do what I'd normally be able to do with them.

Everything *seems* fine: it just can't boot.

Grub2 is something of a mystery to me, so I'm not exactly sure what I need to do to get it booting again, if indeed it is a problem with grub.

Fedora Servers :: Mysql At Boot Time In 10 / Get Mysql To Start At Boot?

Jul 28, 2009

I am trying to get mysql to start at boot without any success.

The mysqld scripts works fine when run from the command line, but it does not work when i use the links created by chkconfig. I checked the boot.log and found that mysql starts but then it stops or gets shutdown. This is the log message:

Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /data/mysql [ OK ]
Starting cups: [ OK ]
STOPPING server from pid file /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid
starting DenyHosts: /usr/bin/denyhosts.py --daemon --config=/usr/share/denyho

The same init script works fine in Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Servers :: Moving Websites From Shared Host To Xen Based VPS

Nov 12, 2010

I am moving some websites from a shared host to a newly configured Xen based VPS with Ubuntu 10.04. A steep learning curve but I am getting there! I have a couple of sites installed on the new server and want to test them out, from what I understand I should be able to edit /etc/hosts on my desktop computer (running Ubuntu 10.04) which should automatically redirect my browser to the new server. But it doesn't seem to work.

This is what I appended to the /etc/hosts file: www.xxxx.com

I thought that this should send any requests for www.xxxx.com to Some googling indicated that the browsers I am using may be using DNS caching, ignoring the hosts file. I've tried clearing the cache with Chromium 7.0.517.44 (64615) and Firefox 3.6.12, and even installed a plugin in Firefox to block DNS caching.

OpenSUSE Network :: ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't Connect To Local MySQL Server Through Socket '/var/mysql/mysql.sock

I think this goes here, but I'm not sure. I decided that XAMPP had been troublesome enough. MySQL never worked. So I decided to instal the LAMP stack offered by YaST. I went about installing it thinking that it would all work. But it seems that I was wrong. So I try to start mysql, and here's what I get:
