Enabled Suphp But Still Can Read /etc/passwd

Nov 8, 2008

It there any good way to stop using from reading /etc/passwd?

I have suPHP enabled and open_basedir enabled by WHM too. But it seems susphp ignores open_basedir restrictions?

Here is virtual host config:

<VirtualHost x.x.x.x:80>
<IfModule concurrent_php.c>
php4_admin_value open_basedir "/home/xxx/:/usr/lib/php:/usr/php4/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/usr/local/php4/lib/p$
php5_admin_value open_basedir "/home/xxx/:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/tmp"
<IfModule !concurrent_php.c>
<IfModule mod_php4.c>
php_admin_value open_basedir "/home/xxx/:/usr/lib/php:/usr/php4/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/usr/local/php4/li$
<IfModule mod_php5.c>
php_admin_value open_basedir "/home/xxx/:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/tmp"
<IfModule sapi_apache2.c>
php_admin_value open_basedir "/home/xxx/:/usr/lib/php:/usr/php4/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/usr/local/php4/li$
ServerName xxx.com
ServerAlias www.xxx.com
DocumentRoot /home/xxx/public_html
ServerAdmin webmaster@xxx.com
UseCanonicalName Off
CustomLog /usr/local/apache/domlogs/xxx.com combined
CustomLog /usr/local/apache/domlogs/xxx.com-bytes_log "%{%s}t %I .
%{%s}t %O ."
## User xxx # Needed for Cpanel::ApacheConf
<IfModule mod_suphp.c>
suPHP_UserGroup xxx xxx
<IfModule !mod_disable_suexec.c>
SuexecUserGroup xxx xxx
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/xxx/public_html/cgi-bin/
DocumentRoot /home/xxx/public_html
ServerAdmin webmaster@xxx.com
UseCanonicalName Off
CustomLog /usr/local/apache/domlogs/xxx.com combined
CustomLog /usr/local/apache/domlogs/xxx.com-bytes_log "%{%s}t %I .
%{%s}t %O ."
## User xxx # Needed for Cpanel::ApacheConf
<IfModule mod_suphp.c>
suPHP_UserGroup xxx xxx
<IfModule !mod_disable_suexec.c>
SuexecUserGroup xxx xxx
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/xxx/public_html/cgi-bin/
# To customize this VirtualHost use an include file at the following location
# Include "/usr/local/apache/conf/userdata/std/2/xxx/xxx.com/*.conf"


Scripts are running with user's UID, and that is fine, but it can still read /etc/passwd file for example.

How to fix that? Is it really open_basedir value is ignored by susphp? It works fine if I remove suphp and run scripts with nobody uid.

Passwd- And Shadow- Files

Apr 5, 2009

I have been googling this for a while but am not getting anywhere. Curiosity has gotten the best of me, what are the passwd- and shadow- files used for? The date and time stamps for both the passwd- and passwd files are exactly the same, as are the shadow- and shadow files.

Are they automatically-created backups of the passwd and shadow files?

Resetting A Root Password After /etc/passwd / Strangeness

Dec 27, 2007

We've had a customer do something strange to their server. They were playing with /etc/passwd or /etc/shadow or similar (not quite sure of the details) but the upshot is booting the server into single user and trying to reset the password via passwd gives

passwd root (and any user)
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error

So far I've

Replaced /etc/passwd* and /etc/shadow* with a copy from another server
Turned off SeLinux
/etc/pam.d/passwd is fine
Root file system is r/w

Disabling Fopen("/etc/passwd","r");

Jul 18, 2007

I were seeing c99.php source code to know how it gets /etc/passwd file. it simply uses fopen() for this goal but I think fopen() is needed and I don't like it to be disabled in disabled_functions. I wonder how can I disable just fopen("/etc/passwd","r"); without doing any restriction to fopen function at all

Plesk 12.x / Windows :: MSSQL - Unable To Backup Database Operating System Error 5

Mar 28, 2015

12.0.18 update #39
Server 2012r2

Logged into my panel today to run a database backup on a site I'm working on to be confronted with the following:

Unable to backup database 'XXXXXXXXXX'
Cannot open backup device 'C:Program Files (x86)ParallelsPleskBackupXXXXXXXXX.co.nzdatabasesXXXXXXXXX-29 est'. Operating system error 5(Access is denied.).
BACKUP DATABASE is terminating abnormally.

(Error code 21)

I'm not sure why permissions would change on their own, I'm also not sure how to fix the permissions error. I get the same error on all databases.

PrivateTemp folder appears to have write permissions for Group MSSQLSERVER

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Can't Send Email - Unable To Read Control Files

May 22, 2015

Every out bound email message fails and stays in the queue. The mail log shows this error.

qmail: 1432283802.380653 delivery 27: deferral: Unable_to_read_control_files._(#4.3.0)/

A second problem, also qmail is that I can't send to the server using TLS on the submission port, only if I do plain text. But the first problem is bigger because we can't send at all.

This is a new plesk installation and it has never worked.

Which Operating System

Feb 18, 2007

There's bloody heaps of them. Which one do I go for on my two new file servers? Which operating system out of these is the most common, has the most support, is most compatible? The server will be used to host videos and will run c-panel. A light weight OS is probably preferred but I really have no idea. And incase it helps, the servers have 512mb of ram, about 30 - 40GB of hDD (not actually sure) and an old AMD Duron.

Host Once - Where In The World Is My Server?

Sep 30, 2008

I have been running a dedicated server for years, first with Carolina Online, who then sold it to HostOnce.

Today at around 6PM my server, that was working fine and I was actively working on all day, suddenly disappears off the Internet.

I go to Host Once's ticket system, and they have a message up that they moved their servers from NC to NJ, that all the servers were upgraded to Windows 2003, and that they would be very busy with the migration, don't submit multiple tickets. (Host Once seems to mostly have reseller hosting accounts, not many dedicated servers.)

I start pinging IP addresses and everything in my server's IP block is gone (the furthest a tracert goes is - everything under that is gone.)

This is bad.

I'm worried that they may have bought new boxes in NJ for their reseller accounts, transferred up the data, and abandoned the old boxes in NC ... is this something they might do?

Also worried that the block of IPs their old servers were on may have somehow been reassigned... can this happen?

In any case, waiting to hear back on my ticket but looking for advice. Does anyone know the datacenter Carolina Online / Host Once used in Lumberton, NC? Want to start tracking it down if my box may have been left behind.... Any other insight on what in the world they might be doing / what happenned here?
