And where would I find the user/group file to add that user?

Wget - Apache

Jan 27, 2007

I've just did a 'wget' on a file that's quiet large (2.3GB), and now I'm wanting to serve the file through one of my accounts. The ownership and permissions of the file have already been changed to reflect the specific account; however, when I browse to the file through the web it will not pick up the filesize nor allow me to download the file stating 403 - Forbidden Access.

Is there some setting that needs to be changed to allow users to download a file of this size? or am I missing a permission command?

Cron / WGet

Apr 4, 2007

My crontab uses Wget to access a PHP file. It works just fine; however, the only problem is that each time the crontab is run it creates a file in the root of my site called filename.php.10XX

filename is the name of the file that Wget runs and 10xx is just the number of times the tab has been run.

How can I prevent these files from being created?

DDoS Attack By Wget

May 24, 2009

i have been under DDoS attacks, and what it does is it will have different servers wget

a certain file so it's all pretty much with HTTP.

for example: i had 10000 wget site.com/file.rar from ip x.x.x.x

and then same wget from ip y.y.y.y.

now question is how could i block this?

is it a way on apache2 to limit Downloads per IP (example 1 gb /IP)?

Command For Tranferring Files Through Wget

Jul 16, 2007

I am trying to move over a client from Verio's hosting to my VPS. The verio control panel looks very amateurish and there is no option to do a full account backup. There is no SSH either.

I tried wget -r ftp://user:pass@hostname/directory/* which was mentioned in another WHT thread, but after it gets connected, it shows the following and stops there:

Quote:

Logging in as accountname ... Logged in!
==> SYST ... done. ==> PWD ... done.
==> TYPE I ... done. ==> CWD /directoryname ... done.
==> PASV ...

Can anyone suggest a command that will work? There is only about 35 MB of files there, but I spent hours yesterday trying to download through FTP.

Joomla Security / Linux Security

Apr 4, 2008

I run a web hosting company and one of my servers is a LAMP server running CentOs 5. A user of mine has a Joomla installation running to manage his website and he has run into the following problem that I am puzzled by.

When Joomla adds a component or module to itself, or when a user uses the Joomla upload functionality, Joomla will add the new files under the user name "apache". This makes sense as it is the apache service running PHP that is actually creating the files.

However, when he FTP's into the account to modify these files, he doesn't have the appropriate permissions to do so as he doesn't have a root level login, just permissions on his home directory which is the site. Any help would be much appreciated.

Also, does anyone know how to change the owner/group of a directory and all of its sub directories in Linux without changing the actual permissions? I.e. some of the files in the folder have different permissions (0644 as apposed to 0755) than its parent but if I do a top down user/group change on the folder it will change everything in that folder to 0755.

Enabling SMS On A Website

Jun 13, 2008

My client wants to send SMS from his new website that we are making. How can I enable this feature ...? What's the easiest way?

(The reason I'm posting this question in this forum is that I'm just guessing that this has something to do with web hosting. But, admin, if I'm wrong about this, please move this to a different forum.)

I read that Clickatell is a good service to use to provide this service on our website. Did anyone here use this service before? If so, what did you think about it? Is it easy to set up?

Enabling WebDAV

I am running a Fedora Core 4 VPS with Apache 2.0.53 I think.

I would really like to install/enable WebDAV so that I can mount some of the server storage as a drive on my computer for easy file manipulation from desktop, laptop, gf's house, etc. without having to carry the files around with me all the time.

How would I go about configuring WebDAV?
