So in my first ever attempt at Linux (and servers) I was able to set up a working web server that is visible from outside my network and created a simple PHP page thanks to this tutorial. I installed MySQL and have some experience with MS SQL but have no clue how to get started setting up databases and writing procedures in MySQL. I know all the syntax about writing scripts for MySQL (assuming it's the same as SQL) but I don't know how to get started. Do I need to be on the web server or can I do it remotely? Is there a front end GUI that everyone uses?
I'm building a new backup server, migrating from Centos to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and upgrading to Bacula 5 all at the same time.Is there a way to find out why there's a 3 month lag? 5.0.2 was released in April, and the currently available packages are 5.0.1.Also how can I find the policy on future updates ? I'd really like to use the core-provided packages but don't want to end up way behind after a year or two.
Just did apt-get update then apt-get upgrade then apt-get install linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic fdutils linux-doc linux-tools Now at: Linux 2.6.32-31-generic on an x86_64. But upon console login after rebooting into the new kernal:
Why would Ubuntu insist there are so many updates available when neither apt-get nor synaptic seem to find anything to upgrade???
How do I use apt-get or aptitude to tell me what updated packages are available for my system? I'm moving over from Gentoo where I had a cron job that would run a command whose output was a list of available updates. I had this and other system related info emailed to me. I'd like to duplicate that under Ubuntu, but I can't find a way get the available updates.
I did a clean install of 11.04 this morning. Upon logging in, Update Manager appeared, telling me there were 67 packages to upgrade. I obliged, and the update progress window appeared, as usual. At this point I realized it was not a convenient time to install the updates. No progress had yet been made; Update Manager had not downloaded anything, the progress bar had not moved, and the status was "waiting". I canceled the update and closed Update manager. However, upon running it again, it thinks that it successfully installed all the packages. In the "Ubuntu Software Center" Update history, it shows all those packages as having been updated with a timestamp of when I canceled the update. Apt-get and aptitude will not update the packages either. It seems like the packages have been marked as updated even though no update was installed. How can I rectify this problem and get the package managers to actually install the updates?
I did my update back when F13 was first out. A lot of the F12 packages are still on the machine. Should I be concerned. My latest thing was dealing with the Kmod-Nvidia packages left behind from F12. Someone suggested removing them and once I did my updater did its job perfectly.
So, the question is do I need to remove all the F12 packages or should I wait until there is another conflict? Secondly, if I should remove them, is it a search and destroy mission or can I simply nuke them all in one grouping?
where does all the updated packages get saved in my computer in which I have installed Ubuntu 9.10? its really hard to download all those large files in slower Internet connection and the backups are unknown.please help me if i can save those downloaded packages in other devices.
I am really enjoying recently slackware. Using slackpkg and sbopkg it is so easy to keep slackware running current. Sometimes I feel like a master of Linux, which is absolutely no true. Apart of some objectives I have regarding slackware's philosophy, I have this question please. I have about 8 packages installed via sbopkg. my question.
1)Is there a way to keep these packages updated via a program? (If not I guess I am obliged to check manually for each of them.) 2) Also, sometimes when we build a package via sbopkg it is necessary to build other packages. Is there an option to install via sbopkg and the package and its dependencies required through just one command?
I am creating custom install media using the Fedora Core 14 DVD as a base and I have gathered all of the packages and their dependencies I require using the yumdownloader command.I made sure to download the @core group along with the ones listed above. The problem I'm running into is that I don't know how to update the media's repo information to reflect some of the updated packages I have downloaded. So when I go to install on the device, it's saying it can't read/open a certain package and you can see that it's looking for an older version because I'm guessing its repo is telling anaconda that this is the specific version to look for. I'm looking for a way to "update" the repo found on the installation media.
How can I get an updated version of PHP on Ubunut8.04LTS? I think the version that is on it by default is php5.2.1 - I need to use 5.2.10 at least for a web based application I use. Is there a way to tell Ubuntu to use this version - I don't what to go to 10.04LTS as that has php5.3 I think. If I manually install php 5.2.10 it might get messy and will Ubuntu damage it when I run an apt-get update?
I upgraded a system from 10.3 to 11.4 and I get the following error when trying to run mysql:
Will update MySQL now, if you encounter any problems, please read following file: /usr/share/doc/packages/mysql-community-server/README.SuSE Log files inconsistency, please merge following files manually: /var/lib/mysql/mysqld.log /var/log/mysqld.log
How can I correct this? Mysql will not start so I can not run any of the utilities.
I have a typical lamp setup. I updated to 10.04 and I can't seem to access phpmyadmin now. Apache and mysql seem to be working fine. I have tried restarting them both and have reinstalled phpmyadmin. When I say not working, I mean I try to navigate to [URL] and get page not found.
I'm wondering if there's a way to verify the integrity of installed packages/programs against official repos. I did an update via synaptic about a week ago and it asked me to upgrade several packages such as login, su, passwd, groupadd, useradd, lastlog, and several others. Right away I was concerned about this, but I figured it's via synaptic, must be safe. Well now it's a week later and I'm trying to find some "last updated" info for these packages, changlelogs, whatever, to verify that they were indeed official releases/updates, and I'm coming up empty.
Is there something I can do to verify that these files and my system are still intact?
I've just updated from 9.10 to 10.04. Everything seems to run fine except for zend optimizer which is throwing "Zend Optimizer not installed" error. I went to php.ini and the following line is still there
Code: zend_extension=/etc/php5/ZendOptimizer.so.Also I checked that the file does exist and that the php.ini I am looking at is in fact the php.ini file that is being used by the server.
Currently our Production Server version is Fedora8. I know its very old version, i was newly joined as server admin for this company.. my first task need to Upgrade Server with all updated packages and patches..Without production time down..because we have nearly 400 clients accessing our server.

The Payment Card Institute (PCI) is requiring our site to upgrade to the latest versions of Apache, Mysql, OpenSSL, and PHP to fix known bugs that can compromise securityI can build all these from source, but when I do "make install" they don't mimic at all what is installed (directory format, files, etc) when I do apt-get install (of whatever old versions are in the dist).How can I find out how the packages are build via configure/make so that I can replicate the files, directory structure, etc, just with the current versions.
Vuze downloaded an update, and now everytime I use it keeps telling me to re start for the update to have an effect. When I re start, same thing happens again tells me it needs to restart. I'm using Gnome and openSUSE 11.3. I checked older posts for a solution it seems this has happened before. Do I just wait for a new version to come out of the repos?
I have a copy of the DVD Iso for centos 5.3. I downloaded the updated packages to the Centos directory and then ran the repomanage perl script to remove the old files from the directory. I then ran the createrepo and the new iso image with the script code below.
I am using VMWare to test the build, so I have the cd pointing to the iso image. I get the CentOS to start up find and dandy asking the questions for the interactive boot. It gets thru the stage of checking dependencies and then when it starts to copy down the image to the "harddrive" that is when the problem occurs.
One of the updated files is file-4.17-15.el5_3.1.i386.rpm (file-4.17-15.el5.i386.rpm was removed using repomanage), but the loader is looking for the removed file. I've looked thru any dependencies, but nothing specific for the removed file, all are asking for /usr/bin/file with no specific version numbers. I have run a rpm -test on all the rpms, but haven't been able to look thru that to see if there is a specific request for the version.
I did try this, but it just moved on to the next file. I did not replace the file version, but then it found another problem that was the same as this, the updated file is in the repo, but it is requesting the old version. I looked thru the fileslist and others to see if maybe that was the problem, but they were updated to the new versions.
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 sts/denyhosts.cfg 090727 04:35:47 mysqld ended
