Cent OS

Apr 23, 2007

I have a server in our office which is used as a share drive. Puts all accounting docs on it ect. After 6 or so, it will loss all conectivity completely. Yet the server still stays on. We installed everything in all packages on the server including it graphical interface. We havent mucked with any of the powersavings so what could it be. Also there is nothing plugged into it eg screen,keyboard and mouse. All that is connected is the power cable and the ethernet cable. That is it.

It is directly connected to a belkin wireless router

How Does Cent Os Pick Mirror?

Nov 5, 2009

I noticed with every new cent os server there are different mirrors for cent os repos.Since on each cent os repo file is same,how does it pick which mirror it pick?I ask beacuse latest server has picked one extremly slow edu mirror which is not just slow,it also timeout,and it may extend update to 2 hours instead 5 minutes which usually will take.So how do i change base mirror on base cent os repo?

How To Check Which Version Of Cent Os Is Used

Jun 28, 2009

how to check which version of cent os is used?

my friend ordered an vps with a host, he ordered 5.3 - 32bit but some how I feel he has been provided with 5.0 version by the host, I didn't know how to confirm it, when I checked his hypervm, this was the cent os details provided:

Ostemplate: centos-5-i386-hostinabox576

there is rebuild option in the hypervm and in tht when I look out,here it shows the following:

what my friend exactly needs is a cent os 5.3 - 32bit system, so if he selects cent os 5.3-ix386 (full) will it install with cent os 5.3 ?? he doesn't want kloxo to b in there auto, he/I can install tht,

FreeBSD Security

Apr 9, 2009

I haven't really messed with FreeBSD very much, but I'm picking up a FreeBSD server and needed to know of a good free firewall for it.

On my CentOS/Debian servers I use CSF and have had good luck with it, so I would like something like that if there is one out there.

CentOS Or FreeBSD

Apr 8, 2008

We are basically looking for advice on which OS to choose. CentOS appeals as it is basically RHEL - and since people are paying for that they must be doing something right. It is apparently uber stable because the versions have been tested to death... but because the packages are so out of date, or just not there, we will need to install many things from source, which defeats the point to using it for its stability.

FreeBSD seems to have an awful lot of up to date packages, took a look at it on Distrowatch and was very impressed by many are the latest versions. This would make life so much easier because the package manager can handle installs and updates, really can't be bothered with messing around compiling software for install/updates.

In my mind, if an open source project as mature as the likes of Apache, PHP or MySQL, I am pretty sure you are very unlikely to experience problems by using the latest stable version. Surely by using older versions you are more likely to experience problems as of the result of bugs/security exploits that have only been fixed in the more recent releases.

Would you use FreeBSD or CentOS/RHEL? Or are both equally as good?

FreeBSD Top States

Feb 11, 2007

I've been using FreeBSD for a while now, but I still feel like a novice when looking at top because I don't understand or know what all of the STATES mean. I know that many of them represent different kernal states and certain programs have their own unique STATES, but what do the usuals mean? man top only has 2-3 listed with very vague descriptions.

Does anyone here understand many of them? If so it would be greatly appreciated if you could write up a few of the basic ones.


Those are the ones I currently see in top. I know there are probably thosands of others, but those are the ones I usally look at.

Mar 15, 2007

after many painstaking hours, im at a loss as to where to go now (finally managed to get up to the point of running phpize in the ffmpeg directory)


Originally I thought i had compiled it in when compiling PHP,


'./configure' '--disable-debug' '--disable-rpath' '--with-bz2' '--with-curl' '--with-gd' '--with-openssl' '--with-png' '--with-zlib' '--with-mcrypt' '--with-mysql' '--with-pear' '--enable-bcmath' '--enable-ftp' '--enable-magic-quotes' '--enable-sockets' '--with-ffmpeg=yes' '--with-apxs2=/usr/local/sbin/apxs'
But when i go to the tests/ffmpeg_test.php file I get:

Warning: dl() [function.dl]: Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20020429/' - Cannot open "/usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20020429/" in /usr/local/www/apache22/data/tests/test_ffmpeg.php on line 17
Can't load extension /usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20020429/
I used the ports tree to install FFMPEG and here is the version info:

bsd# ffmpeg -v
ffmpeg version 0.4.9-pre1, build 4718, Copyright (c) 2000-2004 Fabrice Bellard
built on Mar 14 2007 20:42:22, gcc: 3.4.6 [FreeBSD] 20060305
After finally getting to this point, i say the heck with it and just decide to try and use phpize and compile it in that way as an extension ( following: ).

However, after I got phpize to work ( had to cp autoconf259 and autoheader259 to autoconf and autoheader since it was complaining about it ), it gave me this set of errors:

/bin/sh /usr/local/src/ffmpeg-php-0.5.0/libtool --mode=compile gcc -I. -I/usr/local/src/ffmpeg-php-0.5.0 -DPHP_ATOM_INC -I/usr/local/src/ffmpeg-php-0.5.0/include -I/usr/local/src/ffmpeg-php-0.5.0/main -I/usr/local/src/ffmpeg-php-0.5.0 -I/usr/local/include/php -I/usr/local/include/php/main -I/usr/local/include/php/TSRM -I/usr/local/include/php/Zend -I/usr/local/include/ffmpeg -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -g -O2 -Wall -fno-strict-aliasing -c /usr/local/src/ffmpeg-php-0.5.0/ffmpeg-php.c -o ffmpeg-php.lo

Stop in /usr/local/src/ffmpeg-php-0.5.0.

After I get all this working and install it on a another machine I plan on writing a guide for FreeBSD users inside the tutorials section - but this one part has stumped me.

The only thing I can think of is something along the lines of maybe i downloaded a 64 bit version of something along the way?

Should i continue along this route with phpize adding it as an extension, or does someone else have some information on that ffmpeg_test.php file?

Crontab + Php In Freebsd 6.1

Feb 5, 2007

i created a new cron job with "crontab -e" command by using the "root" user.

* * * * * php -f /path/file.php

i tried it for php -q too. while i type this command on the shell the php file works. there is no problem with crontab rule too. the chmod of file.php is 777, user root group wheel..

but it cant work. i couldnt understand why it aint.

i created a shell file and changed the cron like:

* * * * * /path/

and in

php -q /path/file.php
mkdir /path/anydir

so, /path/anydir have been created but file.php not executed. so the problem is not about cron rule.
