  • As we are working on a new website, we had a problem where a redirect would not work. I tried both: a simple Redirect and a RedirectMatch as follow:

    Redirect / http://finball.m2osw.com/
    RedirectMatch permanent ^(.*)$ http://finball.m2osw.com$1

    Both of these entries would not work at all.

    I verified, to make sure, that the alias module was turned on. It was.

    ls -l /var/apache2/mods-enabled

    This did list the alias.conf and alias.load entries as expected.

    So? What else?

    Well... This was installed on a new server and we left the default entry in there:

    ls -l ...
  • When I installed Flash, it automatically installed McAfee, the anti-virus, and really, I have not seen an option to NOT install that wonderful free tool which annoys me (and probably many others) a lot...

    Not knowing, I then searched for a little while, why is it that my Wifi connection says "Limited" instead of "Connected". This is because McAfee replaces the MS-Windows firewall with their own stuff. That stuff limits the connections and everything will not go through, hence the Limited information on my Wifi connection.

    Since I removed McAfee, my connection remains and ...

  • The laptop I use runs MS-Windows 8.1, because a few software I have only run on that platform... It uses the WiFi to connect to my LAN. This is how I access the Internet, too.

    Only once in a while (very often, if you ask me!), my WiFi would go out. This started to happen more or less when I switched from AT&T to Comcast. I did not really see what could possibly be different and all my other computers would continue to work just fine, including those used with WiFi too.

    Many people say that your WiFi is bad or that you should change your WiFi Router... Or maybe when the laptop goes ...

  • Not too long ago, I accepted the update from Microsoft to go to MS-Windows 2000 SP4. Neat. Except that when I rebooted (I think the 2nd time, but not totally sure, my wife used the computer in between, it seems...) it could not load my profile anymore.

  • Introduction

    I just faught for a few hours trying to get the WNetAddConnection2() to work in my program and found out two things that I did not see explained anywhere in the documentation...

    Folder that Works

    I'm not too sure whether that's a new thing at the company I worked in to implement this function or whether that's every time, although I've seen other posts on the Internet with the same sort of path so I would imagine that this is a "normal" Microsoft network feature.

    The fact is that to connect you have to use the name of the server followed by some ...

  • I got a new word press website a couple days ago and got it installed in the last few days. There were 3 images missing so I started working on getting them in. When I got the first image, I went to Wordpress and I got an error... with no detailed explaination (maybe there is a log, but I don't know Wordpress that well to tell.)

    The error message was just: IO Error

    I was pretty sure that the problem was just that the folder where Wordpress tries to upload the new content was write protected from the Apache user. Under Ubuntu and Debian, the default name for that user is www-data and

  • Today I noticed that I had quite a few 404 errors on one of my websites. That one uses Wordpress that I got from someone else. Because I wanted to include a blog, I had to change the login name and Wordpress does not allow you to do that by default.

    So to change the login and password, I directly edited the database makeing user 1 me, essentially.

    I replaced the user_login and user_nicename with my own name. This worked just fine. At least at first it looked like everything was working right. Then I noticed that the author link had my name in it. The one with the space. Something like ...

  • The other day, I setup a small script to send file on an FTP. That was a long time since I had done anything like that and was not really thrilled, but I'm working for a client.

    The FTP worked pretty well. The upload was going for a while. According to wput, if the connection is lost, it automatically retries and continues the transfer. It got stuck 3 times on me. For hours. No retry. Zilch.

    Now, I updated my files on my end and then started the transfer again. Had to wait forever, although that is not the direct fault of wput, when it gets stuck mid-way, it's bad.

  • Setup

    When writing a CRON job script that you want to install under /etc/cron.*/job-name you must remember to apply the following steps:

    1. Write the script and test it as root

    2. Make sure to give it execution permission, usually 755

    3. The ownership is expected to be root:root

    4. The filename cannot include a period or the file it completely ignored

    5. The script MUST start with #!/bin/sh or an equivalent (i.e. #!/bin/bash works too.)

    6. Use full paths for most everything1

    • 1. Remember that the cron environment is minimal, you generally will have PATH defined and not much

  • In cmake, you have a cool feature which allows you to create a file.

    First you use a WRITE, then you use the APPEND to add more lines to the file.

    That file may be a shell script, though. In that case, you run in a problem whenever you want to write a variable which uses the curly brackets (as in ${TEST}), because cmake sees those as its own variables.

    There is an example of script that we use in our Snap! development.

    file( WRITE  ${lint_script} "#!${BASH}\n"                                                            )
    file( APPEND ${lint_script} "if test \${3##*.} = ...
