Re: Problem with Apache 2 Server

The site is know running on port 8080 with the url being http://www.thesiteofgeek.tk:8080 . How do I get around my isp blocking port 80. My isp also blocks other ports including port 25,135,137,138,139,445,1900,21,22,23,135 and 4444. Forward port 8080 from your router to whatever port apache2 is ru...

Re: GUI - Raspberry PI 2 - ArchLinux

You must be missing one of the plethora of x* packages required. I think xorg-xinit contains startx - have you got that?
Edit: command you quote above is incorrect, it should be:

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -S xorg-xinit
The -y option updates the master package list, similar to update option with apt-get

Re: Share internet thru another ethernet port

How does your isp provide the Internet to you (adsl, cable etc.)? Your set up is missing a modem which would typically be required for any domestic internet provided in the uk - not sure if your country has different options. You don't state why you want to do this. As far as I can tell all you are ...

You can get the new version from the git repo.

Re: Shellscript with exec(...)

I think you'd be less insecure by adding the pi user to the www-data group and/or the www-data user to the pi group. That way they can share files as long as the group ownership and permissions are set right. sudo adduser pi www-data sudo adduser www-data pi sudo chgrp www-data /home/pi/Messroute.s...

sudo cp -r /home/pi/.ssh/ /var/www/ That doesn't seem like a good idea. Agreed - it sounds like a terrible idea and represents a major security exposure if the webserver is exposed to the internet. Not only have you allowed full SSH access to the pi for the www user, you've also given the pi privat...

Re: New USB hub not working

Is the cable between the pi and hub of high quality? Try an alternative if you've got one. Does the hub have its own power supply? If not then there may be too much load on it, particularly if the power supply or cable to the pi is borderline.

Re: Messed up my permissions

It sounds like the file system might have been remounted automatically as read only due to corruption, rather than a permissions problem. Is there anything in dmesg indicating a problem with the file system when the HDD is first mounted? Try running fsck against the partition and then try to remount.
