Software :: Su And Sudo Don't Say What Password To Enter

Feb 11, 2011

I wonder how to make su and sudo say what user's password to enter?

It's not a big problem for me because I have the same password for both my normal account and the root account, but still it would be nice.

OpenSUSE :: Require A User To Enter Password To Open Terminal?

Sep 21, 2010

I'm in the process of configuring a "guest" account for houseguests tose my computer. I've got the file permissions set, but I'd also like to restrict their access to the terminal. It seems to me that most of the damage that can be done to a computer goes through the terminal.I downloaded Pessulus (I use Gnome)but it doesn't require a password. the profiled user can just open Pessulus and alter their profile -- what's the point?Is there a way I can require a user to enter a password, either for any terminal or Pessulus?I like Pessulus -- it's concise and easy to use. But it doesn't seem very secure as I understand it.

Software :: When Enter The User Name And Password, Instead Of Logging Into The Console, It Again Redirects?

Jun 2, 2011

I have installed the new phpMyadmin3.4.1 on a server running Ubuntu 9.10 with apache and mysql. It runs on php5.2.10The apache config seems fine as the virtual directory that I configured works fine. http://<ip-of-server>/phpmyadminlink works. The home page is displayed. But when I enter the user name and password, instead of logging into the console, it again redirects me to the index page of the site. There are no errors displayed. I have checked that cookies on browser are enabled.The server is hosted on amazon web services, if that makes any difference

Ubuntu :: MySQL Password - Access Denied For User

Feb 16, 2011

Cannot seem to use my mysql password, keep getting the error
"Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)"
So I tried checking my password using mysql -u root -p and I get the same error as above. I've tried accessing mysql with skip grant tables disabling the need for a password so I could reset my root password. After going through the necessary steps I still get the error above when typing my password in for mysql.

General :: No Prompt For Root Password After Attempting To Enter Single User Mode?

Jul 13, 2011

I followed instructions to enter single user mode by adding single at the end of kernel line but after that it doesn't ask for root password but brings up the sh# prompt. Isn't that supposed to be insecure? I understand for this the grub password can be applied but even after adding "single" it should ask for root password..or it should not..??

Fedora :: User Uses Root Password With Sudo

Sep 20, 2010

I want to use root password instead of adding my user to the list of sudoers,In Arch wiki ander Root password:Users can configure sudo to ask for the root password instead of the user password by adding "rootpw" to the Defaults line in /etc/sudoers: but that did not work for me. it asks for root password.Why do I want to do that:
1. I want to do that, I like sudo more than su -c 'some_command'.
2. sudo enables bash completion, su -c does not.
3. I don't want to add my user to sudoers list.

I found many users Suggesting alternatives and lowering the important of my need for this, when I asked this question in anther please.

Security :: Sudo Non-user/non-root Password?

Feb 19, 2010

Stumped on this one. I'm trying to set up limited sudo authority on a desktop with some sensitive user data, and as an extra precaution I wanted to configure sudo to use a password other than the user's or the root's. I'm not sure how to do this. From the manual, we have a few options, such as "runaspw" or "targetpw", but none seem quite what I'm looking for.For instance, "runaspw" could be used if I created a user for nothing other than sudo(ing) purposes, but it requires you set "runas_default", which means that said user would have to have authority to execute said commands in the first place. This is workable, but seems like a lot of extra configuration for each specific command that I want to run, as well as creating some issues with simply commands such as "shutdown" or "reboot". Also, "targetpw" can be used in conjunction with a sudo(ing)-only user if I set an alias, but, again, this isn't quite what I am looking for.

Ultimately, what I am really concerned about in this situation are keystroke loggers, so I would prefer to avoid repeated entering the user or root password when performing administrative tasks. Also, I would prefer not having to create a sudo(ing)-only user as mentioned above to prevent a comprimised password resulting in an attacker being able to log into my system.

Software :: ERROR 1045 (28000): Access Denied For User 'root'@'localhost' (using Password: YES)

Feb 13, 2011

for some reason root lost grant privileges and I can't get it back. The user got grant_priv = 'Y' in the usertable. I've tried to reset all the priviliges to the user by killing MySQL process and started up again without grant options with no luck. I've also tried lots of other things but can't seem to get it work. Here is what I get: Quote:

I need to get an old MySQL Client(4.1)to connect to an even older MySQL Server (3.23).The goal is to do a Java/JDBC connect to the old Linux/MySQL 3.23 database, in order to update text information for a Lucene search (which will also run on linuxdev2). The problem is that I can't connect to the Linux/MySQL 3.23 server from a remote Linux/MySql 4.1 client. I can't connect from JDBC; I can't connect from "mysql":

Code:

Ubuntu Servers :: Setup The MYSQL Server - Error: 'Access Denied For User 'root'@'localhost' (using Password: NO)'

Mar 26, 2010

I set up a servber on my local machine, & also PHp - Both working fine.I'm trying to load up MYSQL i have installed it, & *can* start/stop the server. however if I do anything else with it, I get this error :-

Quote:

root@gordon-desktop:~# sudo mysqladmin -u root -h localhost password MYPASSWORD
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)'

Query :-

1) How do I know MYSQL is actually active ? (apart from the message it says that its statrted (or stopped).

2) Is there a way to

a) Find out the usernames that are recorded on the MYSQL server ?
b) set / RESET the 'root' username (I know MYSQL root user is different to PC root user)
c) anything else I can do on the PHP / website code to see if MYSQL is working

(as yet, no tables / databases etc have been set up - as I can't get past this error message - I get the same error when setting up a database.)

Ps I did allow my usermname (when logged in to ubuntu) to edit / create files in the /usr/www/ directory (but it is still OWNED by 'root' - that directory)

Programming :: Bash Scripting With Sudo / Password Prompt And Accepting User Input?

Jul 30, 2011

I'm creating a bash script to do some tasks for me. I would like the script to be run at a set time of everyday. My first question is if it is possible that if one of the commands in the script requires sudo, is there a way to get around it with out making sudo not require a password. Such as, is there a way to include the password in the script? If that is the case, I can always just set the file as read only by sudo. I've been looking for a way to do this, with no success. if I have a command that wants input, how do I give it to the program. For example, if I want to make a zip file that is encrypted, the command would go as:

Code:

zip -r example * -e

now how would I get the script to insert my wanted password.

Security :: Getting Access Denied When "user Must Change Password At Next Logon" Is Checked?

Mar 1, 2011

I have got a RHEL 5.6 server configured to authenticate via a Windows 2008 domain controller via LDAPS.Everything is working fine, except from the following: When I create a new user in Active directory and check the option "user must change password at next logon", the new user cannot logon and gets an "access denied" message. In /var/log/secure, I find the following:

Mar 1 14:43:21 cpssvn10 sshd[5363]: pam_unix(sshd:auth): authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=ssh ruser= rhost=192.168.3.12 user=testuser2
Mar 1 14:43:21 cpssvn10 sshd[5363]: pam_ldap: error trying to bind as user "CN=CPSS Testuser 2,OU=IBM,DC=cpss,DC=smarterplatform,DC=com" (Invalid credentials)
Mar 1 14:43:23 cpssvn10 sshd[5363]: Failed password for testuser2 from 192.168.3.12 port 4583 ssh2

As soon as I uncheck the "user must change ..." option, the user can log on without problems. Also password change via the passwd command works.

Ubuntu :: Where To Enter Commands Like $ Sudo /usr/etc/eth0

Aug 28, 2010

I am a Mac/ Windows user, forced to use Linux for my college work. I do not know where to enter commands like $ sudo /usr/etc/eth0 mvntz -do4i or how to make them work

I had a problem - the Wi-fi card in my laptop was not working. All the forums were useless. They wanted me to READ about wireless networking !

Finally a good friend solved the problem in a simple way : it appears Ubuntu has not installed the drivers for my Broadcom wireless card since it was not open source. I had to download it myself. Here is how : Go to System menu on the top bar. Choose administration/ hardware devices. Tell it to activate the device. It will download the drivers through the cable attached to DSL modem and install.

Then clicked the network icon, selected edit connections, and entered my wireless network name and password. This solved all problems.

Why doesn't Linux give me a warning that the driver for something is not yet installed ? When I was struggling with the network setup wizard for the whole day, there was no clue about the missing driver.
