Enable kernel logging

Kernel Logging is an instrument for tracking and logging specified behaviors of the kernel in Unix or Linux operating system. It may significantly enhance the availability of the operating system by providing detailed kernel trace information to enable a system administrator or other troubleshooter to diagnose and eventually fix the root cause of a system problem without the need of a reboot of the system or performing long and time-consuming actions to reproduce the problem. This is possible because, working in the background, while the system is running, Kernel logging collects and stores messages aboutcertain events that have taken place. The contents of the log are available to you at any time.

Kernel logging is usually enabled by default in may Linux kernel based distributions, however, generally such messages are directed to the standard output of the operating system. In other words they go to the screen.

For the purposes of this tutorial we have used Redhat Enterprise Linux 4 update 4 to demonstrate how you can enable kernel logging and direct the output to a file.

The first step is to setup the syslog to collect kernel messages to a file.

The default config file is syslog is /etc/syslog.conf. In that file you should add the following line Read the rest of this entry »

wget using authentication proxy on Linux

In this tutorial we will demonstrate something that most of you may need to use just for a few times in their Linux experience but will be very happy that such functionality existed at first place. Commong Linux users, including me, are not so used to get things through a proxy. Maybe used one some time ago but I have totally forgotten that such things as proxies even existed. Anyway in case one day it happens that you find yourself in a corporate network and need to download someting from the command line you will find yourself into some trouble. Not that you cannot download it quickly using a browser but for example in my case it was a script that I had to make work. For such cases after you finish reading this tutorial you will know how to configure wget for using proxy with basic authentication.

There are two ways for wget to pick up the proxy server hostname. One way is from the environment variables and another way is via the wget configuration file.The main and only configuration file of wget is located in etc directory Read the rest of this entry »

Set warning message before login prompt in SSH

Today I will demonstrate you one very cool feature of the ssh daemon available on all Linux and UNIX based distributions. It is the so called ssh Banner. The feature is available in OpenSSH from almost the very beginning of the project but I haven”t seen it to be widely used. Anyway still i find it to be a very useful feature that I use on pretty much all servers that I maintain an have public ssh allowed. The greatest benefit of the banner is that it is displayed before user logs in. This is opposed to the motd message.

The configuration file that ssh daemon uses to set that feature is called sshd_config and is usually located in /etc/ssh/sshd_config

To be able to modify this file you have to have super user privileges. Open the file with your favorite editor Read the rest of this entry »

Most of the dedicated servers that you can buy will come with a nice web interface to manage you mysql server. Something like phpmyadmin. But in case you are building a dedicated databases server you most definitely will need to know how to set your first database from the command line.

First thing you need to do is to login into your database server. For the purposes of this tutorial I have installed mysql on a Linux server but the approach is pretty much the same even if you operate on a server with Windows operating system.
